The point wasn't direct punishment, it was making them uncomfortable. You can tell there were changes just based on the marketing. Facebook pulled API access to tons of apps and now says the future is privacy. I wonder why? Apple and Google now have official screen time apps. I wonder why? You would suggest they just came to that organically?

But that's just the more benign case, look at White House officials or Hollywood execs people never would have known the name of suddenly having people pry into all the shitty little things they've done and then getting taken to task. If you're willing to push into China knowing what the human cost is, chances are there are other lapses of morality.
Nihilism isn't really a realistic look at the world, it's just a coping tool to justify how powerless you feel.
Regarding Red Bull:Y'all like lists?
Someone on Reddit compiled a nice list!

I agree.At least Samsung won't be manufacturing phones in China any more. Companies need to start moving away to be less dependent, but of course certain components and rare earth materials will be coming from China so every company will still at least be partially dependent on China. But when you only depend on China for some components instead of the entire manufacturing process, the Chinese government won't hold as much sway.
This is all moot for Apple who will bend over backwards to do whatever the Chinese government tells them because they sell allot of iPhones in China.
Nintendo had already moved their hardware production from China.
FYI Samsung is closing their own manufacturing plant in China, but that doesn't mean it won't manufacture smartphones there. They have contracted Chinese ODMs to make some of their stuff like Galaxy A10s. Analysts predict that they will ship 30-40 million smartphones made in China by the end of 2019.
I can't believe you bought this.“However, over the past several days we received credible information, from the Hong Kong Cybersecurity and Technology Crime Bureau, as well as from users in Hong Kong, that the app was being used maliciously to target individual officers for violence and to victimize individuals and property where no police are present. This use put the app in violation of Hong Kong law. Similarly, widespread abuse clearly violates our App Store guidelines barring personal harm.”
Well what else am I supposed to buy?
Just go with occam's razor
Do you afford that same trust to Trump and everyone else who doesn't actually have your best interests at heart yet constantly claims to?
That’s somewhat of a false equivalence, no?
A corporation is as trustworthy as a politician. Especially that one. I don’t know why anyone would trust either.That’s somewhat of a false equivalence, no?
Trump is distrusted by many because he routinely says things which are then countered by others.
I don’t think (although I’m open to correction) that this is the same case here.
Apple have removed something, there’s been a bit of uproar, and then they’ve released a statement.
Not really sure what Trump has to do with it in all honesty !
Because the situations aren’t equivalent?
