When your boss has to tell you to stop arguing over team politics at work,
that's a clear sign that your team politics are complete immature bullshit.
Obama was an inexperienced, petty, self-aggrandizing clown, now there's just a different one.
Grow the fuck up, America.
In a normal company i'd agree with you, but Apple - being as they are - highly opinionated is in their DNA- design, marketing, policy etc - and with the vocal leadership they have - are probably almost exclusively "Clintonites" - They're the archetypal successful, wealthy, living in the tech bubble, unaffected by the issues Trump stood for.. it'll be a shock to them that not everybody thinks and acts the way they do.
Im going to be honest - I'm 31 and feel like i've suddenly become a pensioner. I dont understand this crazy with emojos and things bouncing about the screen. it seems so pointless and a waste of time. messages, for me, is something which helps me comjunicate quickly by firing little messages back and forth. Not composing a whole drawing /sketch or endlessly switching around emoticons. I honestly kbnow i'm out of touch but , wow, i didn't think i'd hit this stage for a few years within the Apple software world. I'm fine with payment integration and some smart bot type functions which faciliate a task, but all this kiddy stuff.. wow. i feel old!
The next iphone - in terms of design - is basically a year late, for technical reasons, but the design will have been locked down since at least september. iOS ovehall is done, Mac - well, they didnt really do that. So yea, what do you think he's doing? The rumoured on-off car - there must have been a design for that. The rest, basically is iterative and he has a solid team.
For what it's worth i dont thnk Ive will ever actaully 'leave' apple. He'll just sort of stay on nominally.
The glossy black looks good in official photos etc, but i think in real life it wont be so good. I really want it but i think sense must provail.. Ill get matt black.
Completely agree that Apple's stance on privacy is ridiculous. Because they aren't honest and open. They boast -for marketing reasons no doubt - and then they caught red handed doing things 'for convenience - whether it be iMessage technical logs ("to help troubleshooting") or these call syncing. What Happens if you ONLY own an Iphone? Why woul d you want that data syncing? Why isnt it off by default? or clearly labeled? of course, it's not. LIke the rest of teh BS.
And to conclude: they really wanted to do a good job of protecting customer date: they could by not theselves hold the iCloud backup keys
I also think Most customers dont really want this obsession. For a start MOST Apple customers using iOS are ALSO Google customers too, and many will be Facebook users. So if their beliefs were so strong... (which reminds me: Why does Apple continue to take money for Google to make Google teh default search engine, if they're SO opposed to the way they treat customers privacy?)
