Seriously, please I am not for support Google. Please do not tell me to buy used iphone to get privacy which also costs $200 (2 months salary). You need a mac to create a "apple-email" account (which costs 4months salary).
I am not a troll supporting Google. I have in my cheap Moto E (pure LineageOS - NO Google Play) works for 2 days without charge. I too hope Google will open up more, but privacy for rich is not fine. We, the poor, need technology even if it means Google puts AMP.
Why are you happy that apple puts walled garden? You have a choice to use a different OS or phone or browser? In linux, even uploading to iPhotos is NOT possible? icloud/ical/Mail all work terrible - try it once.
I am sorry.
I always said that AMP is solving a real problem. I just not entirely happy with how they went about solving it.
My main criticism of AMP is that I see it as a missed opportunity to make the web(all of it) better.
Instead they introduced a new format, so now publishers have to maintain 2 versions of the site. It also locks users into Google "platform", not an evil thing per say, but definitely a self serving aspect, for which they get criticized.
It's a complex issue. To give credit where it's due, the fact that AMP and team were able to help people like you speaks volumes in their favor. I just wished that we could work towards fixing the original web, instead of trying to invent a new one.
