Apple's New Data & Privacy Portal Lets You Download Your Data
Apple has released a new data & privacy portal that can be used to download data that is linked to your Apple ID. This data can include transaction history, Apple app history, AppleCare history, marketing data, and more.
To access the portal, you need to go to ªª andºº login with the Apple ID associated with your account.
Once you are logged in, you will be presented with the "Get a copy of your data", "Correct your data", "Deactivate your account", "Delete your account" choices.
For the most part, the choices are self explanatory and in this article we will focus mostly on using the portal to download your Apple data. It should be noted, though, that the "Correct your data" option simply brings you to a page containing links to the Apple ID  and Apple Store account pages.
To download your data, click on the "Get a copy of your data" option and you will be presented with a page displaying the type of information that can be downloaded.
The data that can be downloaded using this portal includes:
App Store, iTunes Store, iBooks Store, Apple Music activity
Apple ID account and device information
Apple Online and Retail Stores activity
AppleCare support history, repair requests, and more
Game Center activity
iCloud Bookmarks and reading list
iCloud Calendars and Reminders
iCloud Contacts
iCloud Notes
Maps Report an Issue
Marketing subscriptions, downloads, and other activity
Other data
iCloud Drive files and documents
iCloud Mail
iCloud Photos
When downloading your data, it will be delivered in various formats. For textual data, it will be delivered as a spreadsheet or in JSON, CSV, XML, or PDF files. For binary files, it will be delivered in its original format. For example, images will be sent as image files and files stored in iCloud will be delivered as its native format.
Apple states that adding iCloud Drive files and documents, iCloud Mail, and iCloud Photos iCLoud Drive files will increase the size and time required to collect your data.
Once you have selected all of the items you wish to download, Apple will compile it into a downloadable archive. According to Apple this process can take up to 7 days to complete.
"As a reminder, this process can take up to seven days. To ensure the security of your data, we use this time to verify that the request was made by you."
While the archive is being created, you can check on its status by visiting

Emerging Mobility | TNCs and Congestion | San Francisco County Transportation Authority
Clear argument for limiting private vehicles inside cities.

"Key findings in the report:

The report found that Transportation Network Companies accounted for approximately 50 percent of the rise in congestion in San Francisco between 2010 and 2016, as indicated by three congestion measures: vehicle hours of delay, vehicle miles travelled, and average speeds.

Employment and population growth were primarily responsible for the remainder of the worsening congestion.

Major findings of the TNCs & Congestion report show that collectively the ride-hail  services accounted for:

51 percent of the increase in daily vehicle hours of delay between 2010 and 2016; 
47 percent of the increase in vehicle miles travelled during that same time period; and
55 percent of the average speed decline on roadways during that same time period.
On an absolute basis, TNCs comprise an estimated 25 percent of total vehicle congestion (as measured by vehicle hours of delay) citywide and 36 percent of delay in the downtown core.
Consistent with prior findings from the Transportation Authority’s 2017 TNCs Today report, TNCs also caused the greatest increases in congestion in the densest parts of the city - up to 73 percent in the downtown financial district - and along many of the city’s busiest corridors.  TNCs had little impact on congestion in the western and southern San Francisco neighborhoods."

Macintosh Security: Apple's New Privacy Pages: Your Reading Assignment!
In this day and age, when the western world is being increasingly China-fied and Russia-fied, IOW devolving into totalitarian surveillance states, it's wonderful to watch Apple resist and insist upon user privacy. Good on 'em!
It used to be that Apple merely provided semi-annual transparency reports, annual white papers on Apple gear security and some diffuse documents about securing, hardening our Apple devices. Now, everything has been gathered into one area on their website for easy access along with elaborations no doubt inspired by EU's GDPR, General Data Protection Regulations.
Where to start:

Apple’s full Data & Privacy Portal now available in U.S., Canada, Australia, and New Zealand | iLounge News
Apple’s full Data and Privacy Portal is now available in the U.S., Canada, Australia, and New Zealand, MacRumors has discovered. While the data download option is being gradually rolled out, soon all Apple users in those countries will be able to download a complete copy of the data that Apple has associated with their Apple ID, including not only the standard information such as calendars, reminders, photos, and iCloud documents, but also purchase history, Game Center activity, AppleCare support history, app usage history, and more. The expanded version of the Data and Privacy Portal, which previously only allowed users to correct their data or delete their account, launched earlier this year in the European Union in order to comply with Europe’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), although Apple said at the time that it would eventually be rolling out the feature worldwide. While Apple has allowed customers to manually request this data for some time, the new portal streamlines the process considerably.

Apple's updated privacy site and why it matters | iMore
Apple has expanded its privacy website, diving deeper and detailing even more broadly how the company's relentless belief in privacy and security defines every one of its products and services.
Tim Cook will be delivering the keynote speech at this year's International Conference of Data Protection and Privacy Commissioners, on Wednesday 24 October 2018. It's significant because Apple, as a matter of company policy, believes privacy is a fundamental human right. From Tim Cook at the very top to engineers on the front line, this belief permeates Apple and drives the company's product development process every bit as much as the technology itself. As much as Apple is designing for experience and for accessibility, the company is also designing for security and privacy.
Apple's belief in privacy is made manifest again today with the launch of an updated version of
