You could just pass right on by, but instead actively choose to drop in and share your negative energy with everyone. You obviously have significant hate issues of your own to deal with. Try meditation. Or marijuana.
CheeseFreeze said:I see zero use for an AppleTV now I have the Apple TV+ app on my Samsung TV.
What is the device’s purpose other than supporting users that don’t have such a smart TV yet?
Unless Apple would positioned it more as a console as well, including an exclusive game line-up?

Great, that's the Cook Way. ߙ䦬t;/div>If you don’t think the value proposition works for you, don’t buy it. Frankly I’m surprised they didn’t raise the price - this little thing called inflation means they are already grossing less just from that alone.If you want cheap crap there are plenty of other vendors to choose from out there. Have at it. I have no problem paying for a better experience. I originally typed out paying more for a better experience, but comparing previous Air to this one you aren’t paying more for a machine that appears to be better in every way.
Yup - damn those greedy Apple bustards!
I don’t know why an article about this wouldn’t at least include the names of some of Mr. Rodnyansky’s previous projects. You know, so that we readers can understand why this such a coup for Apple?His company, AR Content has produced 3 of the last 4 films by Andrey Zvyagintsev, who is arguably one of the finest directors on planet earth. Along with Elena (2011), and Oscar-nominated Leviathan (2014) and Loveless (2017), they are working together on the upcoming What Happens (2021).If this first-look deal includes exclusive streaming rights to What Happens, that would be a huge deal for Apple, as that film will almost certainly be an awards magnet next season.

If Apple does absolutely nothing, scorns the homeless, and forces them away, they would have a massive PR problem. This is honestly kind of a marketing gift. Spend a chunk of change (which is pennies to Apple), do something magical with that Apple swirl on top, and poof. You demonstrate all your values, put your money where your mouth is, AND directly help the lives of the people in your own back yard. It’s a win/win and would cost them nothing.
Yes, you present a nice, utopian solution to the problem & your heart is in the right place. But, Apple needs to tread carefully here to avoid painting themselves into a corner they cannot escape. The fact that they haven’t done anything yet and are carefully considering a proper response shows that they know it too.
sflocal said:The only think I got from this article is that the CEO is ignorant and lazy. Jeez, at least he could have summoned the head of mobile development at Patreon before the interview and ask the person how it works.I just lost a huge amount of respect/care for Patreon. Boot this CEO out and get someone that knows about tech.Ignorant and lazy…lol.

cogitodexter said:This would most likely only affect people who have 'cut the cord' and no longer receive broadcast signals via aerials, satellite or cable and thus think they don't need to pay the mandatory UK TV Licence fee. Since watching any form of live-broadcast TV, however it's delivered, including online, requires a TV licence, most of the people inconvenienced by this will likely not have much of a leg to stand on to complain.
