I supposed I could have googled it to find out, but I've certainly never had a carrier tell me in advance what apps would be on my phone. Perhaps it's buried in the fine print that I agreed to without reading, but honestly I doubt it.
I just purchased a Motorola Defy XT from Republic Wireless and it came with the Facebook app pre-installed. I immediately checked for a system update (which there was one waiting), installed it and the FB app went away. Usually it doesn't work out that nicely though. My last Android was the HTC EVO and you couldn't get rid of FB unless you rooted it your phone.
Assuming 3:1 compression our 1 zettabyte (or 1,000,000,000 terabytes) of data becomes 333,333,333.33 TB.
Using a nice IBM 4 TB tape we need 83,333,333.33 tapes for 1 zettabyte.
I still find the 5 zettabyte figure hard to believe.
But searching for tape does start producing a lot more government-like language and documents. Knowing that there is a "Summary Of Non Confidential Information On U.S. Magnetic Tape Coating Facilities" makes me want to read the confidential version.
Ok, but the barrier to putting other apps on an Android device is a good deal lower than on iOS. Typically just changing a setting. Hell, as Amazon has demonstrated, you can release entire other App Stores in this manner.
Maybe his hypothetical extradition will cause a sort-of diplomatic "mess" between Beijing and Honk Kong, leaving him a limbo where neither HK nor China will grant him total asylum but wont extradite him either
There are two areas where SAR have little independence: defense and foreign affairs. Hong Kong will have its own money, postal service, justice, environment ministry, police, ....but it doesn't have a military and its foreign affairs tends to be limited to economic matters.
