  • Fired Apple employee who aired workplace concerns gets approval to sue company

    Her suing would be the worst thing for her. They’ll throw her some equivalent of pocket change at her, make her sign an NDA and shut her up
  • 2022 'iPhone 14' revealed by leakers days before 'iPhone 13' announcement

    How long before Apple shuts that leak down? Was watching the videos that Jon, Sam Kohl,  Brian Tong and Luke Miani posted regarding this and so many of them going “oh with these changes, there’s no point getting the 13” are the purposely trying to screw with demand? 

    Watch, just to spite him, they won’t put those elements in there, I mean, it’s over a year! They’re s probably designing the thing, deciding what features are going to be included and all that.

  • #AppleToo publishes first five stories of harrassment, discrimination

    Saw a few outrage prone people on Twitter saying how they’re going to boycott Apple because of this and the CSAM thing. I’m thinking, “good luck finding an alternative” I mean Microsoft’s founder, was in the news for inappropriate antics with an employee, and Google is far from innocent. And as for the CSAM measures, the competition has had it in place for years. 

    But of course this is going to prompt some people to go on social media and say they’re boycotting Apple, because “Apple is evil” and they want a pat on the back for showing how “woke” they are for standing up to Apple…god sometimes, I really hate social media 
  • #AppleToo publishes first five stories of harrassment, discrimination

    So how many of these stories are people who had crappy experiences working in retail locations? I mean, if that’s the case, if there was a #Starbuckstoo, I could give plenty of stories I could see back when o worked there, or my wife could do the same with her years of working retail at Verizon. I thought it would be horror stories from higher up in corporate. Not that I’m excusing the behavior, but it’s something all businesses deal with when you get to the retail level, because it’s a lot harder to enforce.

    Not to nitpick the Medium article, but that first story out of the UK made a big deal about the WebEx regarding George Floyd, but said he was shot, which was not how he died.

  • #AppleToo engineer target of online abuse, failed by HR

    It almost sounds like the one person got overly offended as Apple was trying to crack down on leaks, taking it as a personal affront. The others it seems are ones who are having issues with how remote work is handled, or had issues with Apple’s return to office plans. I get it, I don’t want to go back to the office either, but it’s not a job like accounting or graphic design, I think there’s a large element that would benefit from people being in office. I imagine there’s a lot of things that have been pushed back or delayed because working from home slowed things down immensely
