And here's where many of us here, including me, differ from Apple:
"We agree with Apple that security is at the heart of all data privacy and privacy rights. Where we disagree is in who holds the keys. Your data isn’t truly private or secure, if someone else holds the keys."
"It’s true that Apple goes to great lengths to lock down their devices from attackers, but like with Google and other proprietary vendors, those locks also lock you out."
@alcinnz I really wish the Chromebook's firmware write disabling screw was on more devices 😑. (but ChromeOS sucks. I run a real OS on mine)
yes, it means evil maid attacks are possible, but I want to rewrite my bootloaders if I want to, dammit!
@ddipaola That screw sounds like a good idea. So you screw it in and it'll block your BIOS settings changing until you unscrew it?
