reminder: the four most powerful mobile CPUs in the world are made by and for apple's exclusive usage in their phones

if you want the world's most advanced mobile CPU you're stuck with The World's Most Advanced Mobile Operating System

reminder: other phones did the notch before the iphone and they were rightfully laughed at. then the iphone did it and it became widely popular

reminder: everybody knows that apple intentionally slows down their old phones to coincide with the release of the newer ones. they even admitted it:

nothing happened, they didn't stop doing it, but they *did* offer a $29 battery replacement for affected phones c:

reminder: apple was the first important company with the courage to drop the headphone jack. now that they've done it, everyone is doing it, and this >200 year old standard is dying thanks to them

reminder: if you try to screenshot a movie purchased with itunes on a macOS or iOS device, it won't work. this is presumably to prevent you from taking 24 screenshots per second and stitching them back together into the full movie, because why else would you prevent people from doing this

reminder: it's against the EULA to install macOS on "non-Apple branded hardware". this means that if you want to test your mac app on a mac, you have no choice but to buy a new laptop or computer

reminder: apple surpassed $1,000,000,000,000 in value about half a year ago. that's one trillion dollars.

@FimbulFlower my apologies for criticising the largest and most powerful corporation in the world

@lynnesbian it's all true. Apple is a horrible corporation and they're ruining everything not just because they do completely awful things because every other company follows what Apple does slavishly. Like the lemmings of myth, if Apple walks off a cliff so will Samsung etc.

@FimbulFlower the thing is though, samsung is one of the few companies that *hasn't* been blindly following apple recently. when apple introduced the notch and removed the headphone jack, samsung didn't copy them, while many other manufactureres did

@lynnesbian ah fair enough. I don't like samsung tho because they seem like another apple.

It was motorola that did this tho. The apple fetish is real.

@FimbulFlower @lynnesbian I like how they took the iPhone X and subtly destroyed the reason it has a notch in the first place - to give you that "bezel-free experience" by adding branded bezel.

I guess they did it to avoid copying the design ALL the way but like, why stop at 99.7%.

@lynnesbian @FimbulFlower ... and this is exactly why I bought a Note 9 instead of going back to an iPhone.

I never liked the iPhone just on principle, but in 2016 I forced myself to carry a 6S+ for a year just so I could quantify why I'd dislike it. I won't be carrying Apple's new products in my pocket OR in my backpack.
