 Lying about credentials to do so…  While their power will still grow a bit before the big collapse coming due, it won’t ever become anything other than regional. Particularly not in the face of a united West.
 Even up to 2008, Apple had a DVI-VGA adapter in the box of every MacBook Pro. I don’t get the change, either.
Yeah, that’s ingrained. I’ll say Open Apple even to PC users and then correct myself to “Command” and then “Control”. Same with Option. I grew up on Open and Closed Apple, but I didn’t start referring to the latter until it became Option.
 Well, analysts now have lung cancer. That’s a plus.
 Ooh, this is now a “things we hate about Safari” thread.  1. The URL bar’s predictive text is worthless. Bookmarks should be the first thing it pulls up, then history, then web searches. I don’t want to start typing and be autofilled a URL that I visited ONCE instead of the bookmark I use DAILY.2. Top Sites is just ‘sites’. All URLs that I visit TWO OR MORE TIMES will appear there, not sites that I actually visit most often.3. Cookies should be lockable. I should be able...
 I don’t see where ludditism comes into play. iPhone is objectively a simpler setup than iPhone+Apple Watch.
And Beijing would have laughed them out of the room, since that would be the most base hypocrisy. Tim Cook, on the other hand, holds sway over the employment of up to a million Chinese. Apple moving or downgrading their business would put a lot of the proletariat out on the streets, hungry, questioning why they no longer have a job. You can see why that would terrify them.
 Wait, what? ‘Course they do. So does OS X. The Ambient Light Sensor does that. He’s arguing that SINCE “less backlight is required” to read inverted colors, inverted colors are more efficient. That, of course, isn’t proof. It’s just proof that we’re correct about backlighting.
Thus proving our point.
Wonder what Apple said to get them to back down. It’d be useful to know in the prevention of tyranny elsewhere.
