Gen Z’s relationship with tech: They don’t want to be always reachable - Vox
Males and females of Generation Z do tend to differ from one another in one important way: optimism about tech. Gen Z women are markedly less likely than other generations and less likely than their male peers to be optimistic about technology’s impact on society.

They’re also more worried than other groups about online safety and security and their personal information “getting into the wrong hands.”

Board Votes and Performance Reviews - Bloomberg View
Anyway also Uber violated Apple's app-store rules by "secretly identifying and tagging iPhones even after its app had been deleted," hid this from Apple by geofencing its headquarters, and got yelled at by Tim Cook when it was caught. Uber quickly backed down. The symbolism is obvious. Uber's culture of disruption goes hand in hand with a certain antagonism to outside rules. The rules of cities and states and nations -- about taxi licensing or safety or employee rights or whatever -- are meant to be broken, and broken with pride. Uber is a new way of doing things, a disruption to entrenched political systems, a new polity not constrained by the archaic geography of traditional legal systems. If you're breaking Apple's rules, on the other hand, you have to do it discreetly, and knock if off if you're caught. You can run over Bill de Blasio, but you have to be nice to Tim Cook.
