Yesterday I stepped on my SONY Noise Cancelling headphones...
I thought: Maybe I'll use Apple's earbuds?
So I did and they fucking suck.

Not only they get pushed out by my own ears, they don't fit properly, they hurt, they sound awfully bad compared to SONY.

And all I thought was:
I can't believe people pays for this fucking shit.
Apple fucking sucks.

I miss my SONY headphones :cry:

The only Apple thing I like is macOS, honestly, due to just how clean and user-friendly it is compared to Windows. Finder has inbuilt tab support and it's much easier to find things using it; the desktop now collects things into groups (Images, documents, etc.) instead of letting it remain as clutter; the menu bar and Dock separation is great...

If I could easily install macOS on a non-proprietary system - that has better specs and would be comparatively cheaper - then I'd be all for it. That'd be a great move, especially since that's what Microsoft has been doing for decades.
Except Apple doesn't allow that, so...ugh. Expensive weak laptops, because that apparently brings in more money than licensing the OS out would.

Other than macOS, I couldn't care less about Apple.

You can, with mixed results. Depending on your hardware, it might work well, though. They are called ‘Hackintoshes.’

Now you just need an Android phone with decent long-term support ;O;

its called root, twrp, and custom roms, my google nexus 5 runs android 10 perfectly, try to run ios 14 on an iphone 4 or 5..........

10 years is exaggerating


Nah, tis true, ya know that face recognition feature to unlock your phone? Androids had that since around 2010, they even make you blink, so you can't use a pic of my face, iphones recently got this too, cause apple made sure to put it in recent iphone commercials, like they created the idea

Apple focuses on how much money they can siphon from you, make a phone that is very likely going break out of warranty, charge you a shit ton to fix it, I know a guy his name is louis rossmann, he can tell you all about their tactics, apple doesn't even want you to be able to buy your own parts to fix your phone,

they just be like well this phone is over a year old buy our newest one, cause we'll charge the same to fix your old one

Plus if apple is so secure, why is it constantly jailbroken? Plus we all should know not to use icloud and apple maps

Huh, that’s the only apple thing I don’t like, even though I prefer android, I’m fine with iOS, it works and looks nice but I never really liked macOS

As someone who used to only use Apple products, they’re really gone to crap. You can cry and wave your arms and scream that Apple was always overpriced and wah wah, but they were genuinely innovative throughout the late 2000s/early 2010s.

These days, the iPhone line might as well be a budget spec’d phone at premium prices, and their macOS has become more bloated with every entry. The main draw of Apple used to be ease of use and optimization. Now they have neither.

I don't really buy apple products, but I did buy an itouch from my sister. a first generation iTouch, I might add. it still works perfectly, but my god is the screen small.

however, you're right. mp3s have been around for quite some time before the ipod. heck, I even remember mp2s.
