Ask Mr Bezos - although (allegedly) he failed to take the same precautions over his own photos.

T480? We've just been upgraded to them.
Mine overheats and gives "Fan Error" messages.
My colleagues has had a new motherboard already after the USB-C connector failed. As they now use cheaper USB-C expansion boxes rather than the proper docking stations with proper connectors if you take your laptop around and have to plug / unplug the USB-C this happens. I leave mine connected all the time and use it as a desktop - so it is OK.
If you want reliability, look elsewhere.
You missed a few things from your review
A company that drops support for its phones after a short time - ask OnePlus 2 users about that
A company that lied and bluffed its way through a hack resulting in people losing a lot of money.
If anyone trusts such a company - good luck - I won't be going near them.
As I recall, Sun killed the x86 version to boost sales of their Cobalt Linux.
It did boost sales of Linux alright - SuSE Linux, RedHat Linux . . .
Cobalt Linux died, Sun revived x86 and then shot themselves in the other foot by charging for patches when others were free.
Actually the Forte lubricants and additives do a good job - a can of fuel additive before the MoT cleans out some of the gum and crap making a pass more likely especially as most modern fuels are contaminated with rape oil or ethanol.
Before buying this phone, look at One+ - the company behind it and the way they have treated past customers:
Look at how long they supported a previous model, the One+ 2.
Look at how they treated customers after allowing their credit card details to be compromised - some customers have lost thousands yet One+ seem to have swept it under the carpet.
If you are happy to chance it with such a company, good luck.
It beats me why this company continues - I guess it is indeed like a religion where "bad things" are just "God's will".
Whether it is the lack of support offered to OnePlus 2 owners or the lies and atrocious handling of the compromise of credit card details used to purchase OnePlus 5Ts - this company has a seriously lousy level of customer care.
Of course, for fanbois, it is "God's will". For the rest of us it is an extremely good reason to look elsewhere.
The Swiss TV Tax is not the same as UK.
In UK you can avoid it by not watching programs as they are transmitted and not using BBC iPlayer - an Internet feed and a Netflix account needs no licence.
In Switzerland, it does - as Internet carries catch-up thus everyone has to pay if they have Internet. Also a radio requires the licence. Next year it will be reformed to one licence per household and reduced to SFr365pa - roughly double the UK fee.
Maybe . . . or maybe this has just patched a hole the NSA knew about and were using themselves.
In the past, Amber Rudd and her ilk have named Telegram and Whatsapp as two applications that use end to end encryption that are allowing horrible murderers/paedophiles/terrorists/tax evaders/[insert bogeyman] to hide their traffic.
They never mention, for example, Signal.
Now what if the reason these apps are named is to encourage the bogeymen to use them instead of stronger apps?
What if Kaspersky have found one of the NSA routes in?
Sweet revenge for the ban, and maybe one less way to be snooped on.
Still prefer Signal though.
I have to disagree about the false positives - Nessus is no better and no worse than Qualys. Personally I preferred the Nessus interface - Qualys tries to do everything and ends up as a jack of all trades master of none - leaving users having to hop around between different parts in an inconsistent manner.
Furthermore, Nessus here picked up an error Qualys missed caused by our desktop team having the wrong CAB file in SCCM.
BUT all this is no use if the tool is unmanageable or the vendor cannot be trusted - which is where we now are with Nessus.
Finally, taking the fingers-in-ears approach and shutting down the community server to avoid adverse discussion shows a company that seriously just does not get it.
Very sad. Good product. Crap company.
We have just cancelled our Tenable order - only for three copies but that is still over $7k - placed last week but will arrive too late for the API cutoff. A pain as we had written a load of Python scripts to manage the scan output. The silly thing is that had we got the Nessus scanners in there was a possibility we would have then moved to something like Security Centre. Now - no chance at all.
I am now looking at OpenVAS - there seem to be a couple of useful APIs in there that can be leveraged - and I suspect if a load of other people move like us and make a few donations the feature set will rapidly increase.
Tenable remind me of Sun Microsystems - some may recall Solaris x86 being canned to help Sun's Cobalt Linux. It did help Linux - RedHat Linux, Suse Linux - but not Cobalt! By the time Sun realised and restarted the Solaris x86 line it was too late - Linux had the market share. Tenable seem to hope killing the API will make everyone rush out and buy their io cloud based product. When they realise it hasn't happened and restart the API it will be too late for them as well - others will have the market share.
Finally, Tenable really have screwed up - not only with the update and the spam but also their brand new support community - currently giving a 404 error and spewing a load of diagnostics. That makes three problems!
Gun - foot - aim - fire!
