"Apple Inc AAPL.O has begun keeping the personal data of some Chinese users on servers in mainland China, marking the first time the tech giant is storing user data on Chinese soil. "

Looks like they storing Chinese users info in China.
Subby made it sound like they're offloading a datacenter for all users there.

What's the problem here? Local data stored locally.

You would be shocked to know how many tech companies that have storage centers across the world.

Read "if you're a user in China, stop buying Apple products, because Apple is now working with the Chinese government to meet their data access requirements." Oddly enough, buying products that aren't owned or controlled by Chinese government interests is considered a bonus if you're Chinese and progressive.

I will never own an Apple product and this is but one of the many reasons.

Actually, information like this could serve to work against the CCP, basically by providing 'non govt' hackers with a way to uncover and disseminate censored incidents within China.

This article is about the physical location of user data, which is almost certainly hosted on a system running neither Android nor Apple software.  The security of client (mobile device) OS software is irrelevant to the topic.  Your smartphone could allow or deny installation of 5000 different pieces of malware, and neither would change the fact that your data is (or isn't) stored on a server in China, and what ramifications that choice has on the security of your data.

I store my information on cave walls with primitive art so that hackers can't get to it.  Archealogists of the future may be somewhat puzzled but hackers will be hard pressed to scale mountains and the like to gather my information.

Id say the black phone is more secure than Android which if used properly is more secure than Apple.

Right. I did not imply otherwise. Chinese user data being stored in China is still related to data hosting procedures... not client software vulnerabilities as the post I responded to was discussing.

You really are an insufferable douche, regardless of the validity of your arguments. You really want someone to DIE because they will not buy Apple products?

If you had taken Steve Jod's wrinkled cock out of your moth long enough you would have seen I never mentioned Android at all.
I have an older Android phone only because my Moto Razr flip phone died.
I store nothing (other than a little music) on the phone and I only use it to make calls, nothing else. No browsing no FB, nothing. I refuse to use 'the cloud'.
But I can store music on it without the need to load useless bloatware on my PC and I rarely even use it  as a music player either.

You Apple fanboys need to get over yourselves.
Proprietary, overpriced pieces of shiat.

You know how you can tell someone who's ass is still sore from Steve Job's dick?
Just watch their response to a negative Apple story.

Whhhhaaaa I spent too much on a piece of shiat because it's hip to own one and I don't like it when someone points out my stupidity.  Whhhaaaaa.
