Your computer isn't yours

Nov 13, 2020

Apple macOS sends a unique identifier of each and every application you run. It is nothing new. On the latest macOS 11 Big Sur however, Apple takes it one step further, allowing some default apps to bypas network firewall or VPN connection 😨

The choice for my next laptop will be a though one. The alledged outstanding performance of the new Apple Silicon is appealing. And the operating system works like a charm. But for now the balance still leans toward an AMD CPU on a laptop running Linux as far as I’m concerned. Maybe I’ll even walk off the beaten path. At least I’ll save a few hundreds bucks, if not a thousand while regaining much freedom.
