7:27 pm
were a few months ago even. and so i think that that probably has propelled also apple wanting to be a good company to put out something to help with users protect their privacy and not have this device been misused. so it's a good thing to do. it may be a little late, but my guess is they didn't really see the need for it until the last several months. there is a convenience, but there's a risk factor and it's balancing that. and i don't think people have a good understanding yet of the balancing. so this, the guide is a good idea a, but people need to be much more aware and read the guide. and i think about the all the ways that this device could be used if in fact they want to try to use one of them now. so suit sites in france over the price of a beget the usually cost about a dollar at the bakery. but one french supermarket chains selling the bread for
