    The standard sdcard gives you _choice_ of removable private storage, nospam. Not only removable, but _portable_ private storage to/from a phone, nospam.

    That's why over 99% of all Android phones have that portable storage choice.

    *They are _choices_ Apple doesn't provide*; so you can't comprehend them.
    The fact is it's my _choice_ what I do with my sdcard slot on all my phones.

    1. In this specific example, it's my _choice_ to extract APKs to the sdcard.

    2. It's also my choice to _not delete_ APKs post install from Google Play
    <https://i.postimg.cc/Z5kdD2rg/aurora04.jpg>
    3. It's also my _choice_ to use the same sdcard & APKs on different phones.

    These are basic _choices_ that you don't have with Apple iPhones, nospam.
    *portable private storage*

    Apple decontents iPhones so as to eliminate those choices from your options.

    I was checking out with the groceries, and a Costco associate was

    These big-box stores are full of pushy sales people, it seems. I
    suppose many of them aren't very smart. I don't plan to renew my Sams
    Club membership. They constantly have pushers in the store trying to
    sell you things. The cashiers harass you about opening a credit card, etc.

    I especially never want to use cash when I'm in a foreign country. If
    I get some cash, I'm invariably left with some when I return home, and
    it will be useless unless I ever visit the same country again. Even if
    do revisit the same country, it may be useless; I still have some
    Italian Lire.

    Charity shops in UKland collect those sorts of dead monies from
    countries you are never going to re-visit. Some of them even collect
    really dead currencies like lira, francs and marks. If you mention
    that the money may have collectible value to collectors some of the
    smarter volunteers may even be able to aggregate lots which will
    provide them with much desired funds.

    Some coins and notes from local currencies can also be rare and
    values even though they are circulating and a few charity shops have
    volunteers who search for such things.

    Perusing their websites may help with this. Look under "what we
    accept".




    <<snipped>>


    Yes, and also the way of cash.

    Cash will never die. No one is going to buy [no one except for the
    people who trust the Nigerian Prince] illicit stuff with their credit
    cards.

    BitCoin-like crypto-currencies are not a solution to that problem. At
    some point in the chain those, too, must be bought and if bought with
    cards they can eventually be traced. Only cash-to-crypto is even
    theoretically safe, and that only if the cash itself isn't marked,
    tagged and tracked.

    Politicians, judges, cops and informants, among many other classes
    will always need brown envelopes stuffed with notes. They may wish
    cash to become difficult for us honest folk to use but it will still
    always be available.

    Though some UKlander shop-girls do smile gently when I ask if they
    still take cash.


    By the way, I've been in several gas stations around the country that
    didn't take cash. They required entering your credit or debit card
    before you pumped the gas.

    That makes it very difficult for those of us who don't have bank
    accounts.

    But perhaps that sub-section of the people don't have *cars*, either?
    If not, then the petrol distributors won't give a rat's fart for them.

    Speaking of credit or debit cards, I never use debit cards. I greatly
    prefer credit cards.

    For the protection?

    I haven't had a CC for more than a decade. I've never missed them.
    But I'm in UKland so maybe we're different?

    John Doe stated the following in message-id <svsh05$lbh$5@dont-email.me> (http://al.howardknight.net/?ID=164904625100) posted Fri, 4 Mar 2022
    08:01:09 -0000 (UTC):

    Compared to other regulars, Bozo contributes practically nothing
    except insults to this group.

    Yet, since Wed, 5 Jan 2022 04:10:38 -0000 (UTC) John Doe's post ratio to
    USENET (**) has been 64.3% of its posts contributing "nothing except
    insults" to USENET.

    ** Since Wed, 5 Jan 2022 04:10:38 -0000 (UTC) John Doe has posted at
    least 2199 articles to USENET. Of which 176 have been pure insults and
    1237 have been John Doe "troll format" postings.

    The Troll Doe stated the following in message-id
    <sdhn7c$pkp$4@dont-email.me>:

    The troll doesn't even know how to format a USENET post...

    And the Troll Doe stated the following in message-id <sg3kr7$qt5$1@dont-email.me>:

    The reason Bozo cannot figure out how to get Google to keep from
    breaking its lines in inappropriate places is because Bozo is
    CLUELESS...

    And yet, the clueless Troll Doe has continued to post incorrectly
    formatted USENET articles that are devoid of content (latest example on
    Thu, 23 Jun 2022 07:11:34 -0000 (UTC) in message-id <t913n6$v2f$5@dont-email.me>).

    NOBODY likes the John Doe troll's contentless spam.

    This posting is a public service announcement for any google groups
    readers who happen by to point out that John Dope does not even follow
    the rules it uses to troll other posters.

    The second time here in a week this nym-shifting troll
    has told everybody it doesn't have a smartphone... lol

    Maybe it should use some of those Best Buy credits
    to buy a smartphone.
