    Customers like good products and Apple seems to be meeting those demands, pretty much better than all other companies, so they either disagree with you or they don't care as much as you think.

    And make no money in the process, great recipe for success.

    Perhaps you should stop projecting your own issues onto Apple, its customers and its success, you're really not doing your own credibility here any favours by commenting on business success factors that are refuted so easily by reality. Pricing, product strategy and customer satisfaction aren't the armchair CEO's forte.
    They will care when they loose a big healthy customer base.

    Apple did extremely well before this money grab. This will backfire. How many will return?
    "Apple doom and gloom," one of the internet troll's favourite epithets to hurl. You definitely have a bright future ahead of you in the financial analyst industry, given how astute you seem to be with sales and customer predictions.
    I just listen to the ground. My troll tip for you is that there is a Lot less iPhone sales this quarter.
    You think that proves something? Other than progressing the silly narrative of yours that you are spreading here like shit on shingles, your "inside information" means nothing that you think it means.

  • How dual-SIM works with Apple's iPhone XS & XS Max

    This is a good idea.  I'm currently in the UK using AT&Ts overseas plan that costs $10 per day to have the same types of coverage as in the US.  
    I've bought SIMs for use in the UK in the past but having an eSIM that is available whenever I need it will be ideal.  
    What I don't know is what the best service is in the UK.  Any recommendations welcome.
    I'd go with an MVNO such as giffgaff, which is the one I use personally here in the UK. They lease their lines from O2 (one of the big daddy telcos which you probably know) but their prices are soooo much cheaper, and no contracts. £25 will get you a month of unlimited calls, texts and data (throttled after 20GB), but you can also select smaller packages if you don't need the "unlimited" allowances. Hope that helps.

    It was a fear when I added it. It may go away soon, we'll see. It was fine for the first few days.

    In reality it's just another case of a few individuals ruining it for everyone. We could ban them, but they would just pop up under alt accounts or make new ones. That's probably not a treadmill worth getting on.
    I have no idea why you would bother taking away something that some folks are using that isn't hurting anyone.

    note that I've never hit funny but did use dislike to indicate that the post in question was yet another tedious reiteration of "apple sucks" by the resident trolls.  I think some of these folks would think a "funny" would be a positive thing even when used sarcastically.

    If you felt that like/dislike applied to the poster rather than the post then agree/disagree would have worked.

    Using dislike was a lot faster and less cluttering than writing the normal rebuttal.  I vaguely recall a list and we could respond by number for the usual troll posts.  Was that here or somewhere else?  It must have been ten years ago when we still got all crazy for Mac World and had a week of insanity and a gazllion post countdown thread.

    It would be something like "Steve sucks blah blah Cube blah blah iPod blah blah Too Expensive! Blah blah xMac blah blah Apple doomed!" and the answer would be like "#23, #11, #32"

    Maybe it was somewhere else but its amazing that a decade later the trolling is the same except with Tim instead of Steve.
    Is this the thread to which you referred?
