    In fact its downright p!ssing her off. She's an iPhone girl through and through. Her technical IQ lands her somewhere between amateur and moron. I say that in the most loving way possible, but tech is NOT her strong suit.

    So why is she so down on my Pixel 5? Glad you asked! She cannot stand not seeing my every move on Find My on her iPhone. Every time she sees those green text bubbles instead of blue ones it reminds her that she can't see where I am. We've been together for over 42 years, married for 33 of them. Nobody ever stepped out on the other, not even a flirtation. High school sweethearts and soulmates. And she's still as territorial about me as a junkyard dog. Now Android is thwarting her penchant for covert surveillance and she's not liking it.

    I say, "tough darts." I'm still loving Android and the Google Pixel.

    No, she doesn't even know what a forum is. No social media either. She understands it, she just doesn't like the lack of privacy.

    She'd have to ask ME to install it. Chance of her doing it: zero. Far more likely she'll tape a portable GPS transmitter on her boot and give me a good swift kick to "implant" it.

    You know how iMessage does that annoying thing where if you send something like "I'm almost home", and they do the stupid Like thing, and you get the Liked "I'm almost home" message? I want to start replying something like Hated "Liked 'I'm almost home'".

    Oh, the irony was not lost on me! She's a barrel of contradictions. Complains about the price of stamps rising but goes to an upscale shopping mall and buys Chanel boots. I've been scratching my head for 40 years and I'm starting to get splinters in my fingers!

    She doesn't like the lack of privacy but still wants to know where you are via your phone?

    I just meant from the perspective that that finding devices is not exclusive to IOS

    Indeed. But being so non-tech savvy with spousal unit needed me to set up her Find My app and show her how to use it. IIRC, Google had an app like this for Android, or at least a feature, that showed contacts around you.

    Just keep location services off, and poof, you're invisible to her. LOL

    My wife and I have been married 34 years, been together for 40. Only time I gave her an app or she wanted knowledge of where I was, was when I was riding my motorcycle. It was more for safety reasons than a being nosy thing. Riding in the mountains has it's hazards, and if the worse happened, they could find me. Now driving the car, I get a text or phone call. And that's only if I'm way late arriving home. I'm a truck driver and that happens a lot.
