Fuck Apple

Fuck Apple
This thread is dedicated to trashing everything about Apple, Apple products, and the Apple corporate philosophy.

I've hated Apple for ever, and will give testimonials about why that's the case.  But let me start with a couple videos I stumbled across that will give you a sense of things:

RE: Fuck Apple
The new cord thing is one of my biggest pet peeves with Apple. Granted, new Android phones are going to see a major cord swap (USB Type-C) soon, but it is an actual functional upgrade. You can use your phone to charge other devices, there is no up or down, it's symmetrical, and supports a much quicker charge rate.

There are pros and cons to each software philosophy. Most of the time for Apple, it's not about the power user. People that like the fact that there's one Alarm Clock app on iOS and that fucker works are going to love Apple. I happen to love the fact that there are 250 alarm clock apps on Google Play, and I can choose the one that has the best GUI for my taste and has the right customizations and behaviors. I like that I can change launchers, (Nova FTW). I like that I can have widgets on my home screens. Siri is a fucking novelty, AFAIC.

Google for life, son.

I don't dislike their products per se, but I do very much dislike their walled garden approach to apps on IOS. Pretty much the same complaints as SC.

Don't get me wrong, there's a market for the walled garden, it just doesn't include me.

RE: Fuck Apple
Syncing a phone to only one computer is bullshit. That's my biggest and practically my only gripe with their devices as far as I use them.

That USB Type-C is awesome, BTW.

7 Hours of Charge in 10 mins. Never worrying about which side is up, or the little latch-y things wearing out.

I promise Google's not paying me.

I'm still trying to figure out what the point of this fucking abomination was.

 The granting of a pardon is an imputation of guilt, and the acceptance a confession of it.

RE: Fuck Apple
Apple is alright in my opinion, the fact you can't really upgrade their computers yourself puts me off. I do like the look of the iMac though and it might very well be my next computer.

RE: Fuck Apple
Personally I would not recommend an Apple product to another person, unless they needed to use multimedia applications or maybe looking for a tablet. This because Apple products are overpriced, also they are very difficult to repair and they are more designed to be fashion accessories than anything else.

Lol I just bought a motherboard that came with a Displayport jack. It will go unused, what with an HDMI port right next to it...

RE: Fuck Apple
I believe with displayport you can daisychain.

Since buying an Sview case with wireless charging for my S5 (and the wife), we can never go back to plugging anything into our phone. Ever.
I use MyPhoneExplorer (free) to access every part of my phone wirelessly. I can't even think of a reason where I'll need a cable!
And in my experience, it charges wirelessly as fast as usb3!

Re: Apple products. Agree with the dude in the videos. As a person who never had a case on his computers in 20 years, yeah, not for me.
Each to his own. I'm a tinkler.
No God, No fear.
Know God, Know fear.
