I don't often share press articles about our products – they rarely seem to say much of use – but this was just such a good case of a journalist Getting It Right that I had to share. Google+ is very much alive, and our recent changes are focused on making it be the best product it can be for what it's best at: helping people meet people and have great conversations about things they're passionate about. 

One particularly noteworthy thing in this article is its discussion of the "majority illusion:" people tend to assume that their friends are typical of the wider world, but almost by definition they aren't – for one thing, they all have one uncommon attribute in common, which is being your friend in the first place. And since people don't choose their friends randomly from the entire spectrum of humanity, one's friends are always a distorted sample. 

So yes, we have here a tech press article which (correctly) uses an important result in cognitive psychology to explain why lots of tech press articles are nonsense.

Köln (EZ) | Das Amtsgericht in Köln hat ein Grundsatzurteil getroffen: Nutzern von Android-Geräten ist es nun erlaubt, ihren Partner, der ein iPhone besitzt, zu heiraten. In der Bevölkerung und in der Politik stößt das Urteil auf Skepsis.

Apple sells 20% of all smartphones but gets 92% of the profits - that's an incredible profit margin... PT Barnum sure would be proud! 
Apple’s share of profits is remarkable given that it sells less than 20% of smartphones

Das Lied lässt sich doch zusammenfassen mit: früher war alles besser. So gesehen sind dir Römer schuld.

Und wenn du eine noch ältere Quelle aus Griechenland findest, die Bild schnappt da gerne zu und verwendet das für noch mehr bashing...

Actually, this would mean Apple would have to bend over and disable iMessage in the UK, or stop selling in the UK... And once they cave in one country, others would follow. We've seen it with BlackBerry caving in to snooping demands in India, for example...

Since Apple has not been inclined to cooperate with such governments, I believe the iPhone (and possibly all Apple products with iMessage - which is most of them...) would no longer be available in the UK
Newly proposed UK legislation will demand that messaging apps such as WhatsApp and Snapchat remove encryption from their apps altogether or see them banned.

+Jasper Janssen​ Me too, even though I don't really like Apple. But then again - Security was the main argument for BlackBerry, and look at how many countries they ended up with "agreements" on snooping (for Five Eyes countries there never were any public discussions...)

+Jasper Janssen yeah, we were cynically emulating what racists might claim to give that story a twist in their direction, however ridiculous that may be.
