From the out-of-pocket expense of relocating to Texas (WHO EATS PICKLES AT THE MOVIES??) to the future loss of income for homeowners. Homes in CA especially in SD are going to appreciate in value more than TX. Then there's the general lack of progressive laws and thinking. Oh I forgot that you're also moving from a coastal area with the highest happiness quotient in the USA to inland the capital of a state that is anti-LGBTQ, anti-woman's rights, pro-gun, and pro-racist.
Instead of Apple doubling down on TX, they should be looking to eliminate their corporate presence there in protest over the backward laws of the state. Just goes to show greed motivates all.
I don't get the point of this article.
It appears to me that Apple originally rejected the app because it didn't follow published developer guidelines. And, apparently, the developers expected this to happen because they knew they didn't follow those guidelines and they know their app is not a "reader app" like Netflix. Apparently, they then added some free functionality, per guidelines, and Apple approved the app in accordance with their published guidelines.
So I don't get what the story is here.
Also, two questions and a comment for the writer:
What does the obvious statement that developers won't write apps for the upcoming Apple headset unless they support the developers have to do with Apple, apparently, following their published guidelines?
What does the ongoing US DoJ and EU investigations have to do with Apple, apparently, following their published guidelines?
Why don't you spend ten minutes searching the Internet and figure out why a paid email/calendar app obviously isn't a reader app.
Seriously! WTF! People complain the iPhone has a Lightning port and that's just to force people to buy cables. They change the port because of a short sighted EU law and people are still complaining. Seriously, why do people hate on Apple so much? If you don't like Apple or their products DON'T BUY THEM.
And if you consider yourself a journalist don't whine about the products they sell like you're some consumer advocate that cares about people when all you really care about is getting clicks by bashing every last thing Apple does.
