Apple bribed contracted Microsoft to make Office for Mac back in 1997. You do what you need to do to keep business rolling.

Funny that a lot of the things Kanye is being accused of here: egomania, juvenility, shooting his mouth off; are things that Steve Jobs was often accused of.   Maybe he's succeeding in his attempts to emulate after all.
Silliness. Obviously you'd want to get your notifications when you wake up, or exit the roller coaster, or finish whatever it was you were doing that meant you weren't paying attention to your phone.I think you've completely misread me there, and it's led to a sentence that makes no sense. Most people are not in constant physical contact with their phone. That's the point. Notifications get missed.Not really, but that's not the point and never has been the point. All...

Don't mind it being on there by default since I use it (despite its flaws) but ffs I wish they'd allow deletion of some of the default apps.
Pot meet kettle?  When did I ever even come close to claiming anything was a bad idea because of your beliefs? If you didn't say it explicitly then you certainly implied it.  Don't tell me you didn't choose to take aim at my broader political philosophy, instead of the immediate point being discussed.  Exhibit A:   I agree, this is a waste of time, though my reasoning is rather different.
No, I'm not going to argue with you if at every single juncture you're going to come back with "well you would think that, you're a statist" or "this is a bad idea because you're a statist" as if that's any kind of reasonable response.  It's an ad hominem, it doesn't address the point, it's an assumption on your part, and it's really, really annoying, especially after I've gone out of my way to explain myself.  What you "gather" from my posts about my political position is...
And in terms of the Simpsons-verse, yellow represents white and asian skin tone.  Because, as that image shows, black characters in the Simpsons-verse are drawn with more realistically (relative to cartoons) skin tone. So invoking the Simpsons as a justification for yellow as a neutral skin colour doesn't really work.
And what if you're not in constant physical contact with your phone, like most people?  Or asleep?  Or you're on a rollercoaster?  Or god knows how many other scenarios that might mean you miss a notification, or have reason not to check your phone at that precise time?   Notifications last, what... 10 seconds?  With some having a second reminder that also lasts that number of seconds.  Many people have other distractions in their life which means they aren't paying...
