Fanboi and/or Patriotic Rhetoric
It's just silly.
Here's what you need to know: Apple, Google, Microsoft, Facebook, Amazon, your government and basically everyone else with the money, power and resources ... they're all out to screw you. All of 'em. Period.
The only good guy in all this is We the People, and the only way we're not going to be meat for the grinder is if we walk off the farm and form a direct democracy, minus the oligarchs.
Yes it's more effort, but then you need to decide which is more important to you: convenience or freedom.
