They are 24/7 on social media, so questioning the narrative on social media is equivalent to questioning the world they live in.
They don't want their bubble to burst.
[deleted post]Perfect example of what Big tech does... Call anyone that questions things a Naaazi.
You don't agree with us despite no proof... We'll call you a NAAZI..real maturity shown there by you
Swordman, 16 Jan 2021So what? Even if their concerns abt social media giants having too much control on free speech... moreParler and other were banned not because they refuse to moderate, but because they refused to censor material that Big tech thinks is harmful (a.k.a anything that doesn't fit the narrative of their overlords).
Besides,Trump's full speech is already out there, Tell me where he incited violence which is what Big tech is accusing him of.
I dare you to quote one line from his speech where he incited violence.
Gullible people like you who blindly believe whatever mainstream media are the worst.
Remember they censored the president of USA.. Arguably the most powerful person in the world (on paper) without any proof of violation.
You think, the average Joe stands any chance??
Ban or no ban, for me, I can't use an Apple product just for the name, I need value for money. I can't switch to Sam_snug, most midrange OLEDs are not up to the task, and their charging speed is just mediocre, they are also comparatively expensive with weak specs. So, where does this leave me? China. I can't switch to any other brand, with China I stand. 🇨🇳

Worse things from Mu®der to r^pe to d®ug dealings have been carried out on Facebook, Instagram etc... Were these social media Giants banned? They failed to moderate these things as well.
If someone threatens someone else on the phone, the phone companies aren't responsible for what the users do. Same way Parler shouldn't be held responsible "if" such a thing happened.
These big tech companies just want to keep their monopoly.
Swordman, 16 Jan 2021Lmao you think parler is a competitor against Facebook, Twitter, Amazon, Google and Apple 💀? T... moreAnother guy who believe whatever lies mainstream media told them about alternative platforms.
Anonymous, 16 Jan 2021Isnt TCL chinese too? Yes but that doesn't mean that they can ban it just like that ;)
Some moderation would be appreciated...the commentary is turning into a cesspool of people wishing the worst for each other.
GSM Boy, 16 Jan 2021True, he knows that once Xiaomi will enter the north america market, it will really disrupt th... moreThe price of Xiaomi in Western markets though has been at a similar level to Samsung. The mi10 (non-pro) was €799 ($965) and the mi10 pro was €999 ($1200).
I understand why USA is banning Huawei as Huawei is directly linked to the CCP government and developing own 5G infrastructure. But Xiaomi is just obediently using the American brands Snapdragon and already clarify that they are not linked with CCP. So this is unfair to Xiaomi
they always deny. no need to worry back door government, your president plagiarism will soon be in office.
LOL. Trump is just pathetic. Good thing this guy has few days left in the office.
Maybe sold their Xiaomi phones to the soldiers in China. Should President Xi change to iPhone? End of iPhone.
Anonymous, 16 Jan 2021Or so you were told by the media. Even international leaders like Merkel and a russian journo ... moreSo what? Even if their concerns abt social media giants having too much control on free speech and politics are true, Trump's twitter ban was because he violated the TOS (which can't be changed, anyone who violates the TOS will be banned), his Facebook ban decision was made by the higher ups (Mark Zuckerberg). Parler's ban by Google, Apple, Apple was because they refused to moderate its content (they could have done so, why didn't they?)
And if BBK came into this list, what would be staying ? Apple, Samsung, Motorola, TCL/Alcatel and ... That's it ? Prepare yourself to have same price spike every year with poor upgrade :P
