You’re seeing people take Apple’s side because Apple isn’t wrong. The suit is being brought by whiny, lazy bums. Were Apple using slave labor, I can’t imagine anyone taking their side.
The suit is brought by people who believe they have evidence that Apple has violated Californian law. It doesn't matter if they're also lazy if Apple has been breaking the law. I'm not going to speculate as to who's right, but that's how labor law claims work in this country.
This is how the tort system works. If you don't like the tort system, get ready for more intrusive regulatory inspections.
I like that wording a lot.
Hey, Crowley! (or whoever it was I said this to. Maybe the other guy. Or that other guy.) YOU SEE WHAT I MEAN? It is NEVER brought up by ANYONE but the offendee. It is NEVER said by people who take the other side of the argument.
Sorry bro, you need to re-read the exchange, we were talking about accusations of being a paid shill. I see none of that here, and as I said before, it invariably goes in the direction of those who are being critical (or sometimes just non-effusive) about Apple.
No, we weren’t talking about that specifically.
Yes we were. You responded to me, and that was what I was talking about. If you thought we were talking about something different, well that explains the disagreement. Maybe you should read more carefully?
Go see for yourself, read what you quoted: http://forums.appleinsider.com/t/181485/apple-denies-installing-ios-backdoor-services-for-government-agencies#post_2567611
You can’t conditionally pick and choose what you want to assume. Either you keep the same level of assumption or you don’t assume anything.
I'm not really sure what you're talking about there, but I'm not assuming anything, the truth is there in the words that you quoted:
Sounds fairly similar to the accusations often levied against anyone posting anything not in favour of Apple that they're a paid up Google or Samsung shill.
Funny how it’s only ever levied by the anti-Apple people after having been disproven in their claims, huh. Almost makes it seem a completely fabricated belief repeated as fact.
"paid up Google or Samsung shill"
There it is, right there. That's what I was talking about. If you were talking about something different then you didn't read my post properly.
Wriggle all you like little worm.
Yeah, you seem to be pretty good at that. Read posts before replying.
I always do. You, evidently, do not, and we have proof of that.
Good night sir.
At least you’re making my posts for me.
Are your thoughts processes seriously "can't think of a way out of this corner, accuse the other person of not being able to read, there's no way they can defend against that" ?
Your self-delusion and arrogance is comical, but you aren't fooling me. You're the court jester " src="http://forums-files.appleinsider.com/images/smilies//lol.gif" />
Yours seem to be.
Wonder away, because you'll never know.
Your speed of typing is incredibly...I’ll let you know after my break.
