APPLE SUCKS ______ (fill in the blank)

September 11, 2013   / by Erik Preston  / Categories :

I swear everything Apple does now, is complete shit. I’m not trying to worship Steve Jobs’ manhood or anything, but ever since Steve Jobs died, Apple has taken a turn for the worst. And the only reason why they’re still successful is because of the little gadgets Jobs thought up before his early demise. Now, I am not some anti-Apple hipster who thinks Apple is garbage. I don’t think Apple is garbage, I know Apple is garbage. So much so, that almost every electronic I own and use is an Apple product, unfortunately.

apple1

Okay okay, I know. Steve Jobs died, and he was the core of Apple. But Jobs’ successor, Tim Cook, has been head of the helm at Apple for the past two years; I can’t tell if he’s even trying. Is anyone at Apple even trying??? Apple used to be innovative and captivate the imaginations of billions around the world. Steve Jobs had a vision of “a personal computer for everyone” and he fucking did it, millions of times over. Jobs (along with Apple, at the time) invented things that made our lives easier, and better. The original iPod when it came out was amazing. It was “the size of a deck of cards,” as Jobs stated, you could store your entire music library on it, it had a rechargeable battery, and it fit in your pocket. My first MP3 player was a cheap chunk of plastic that stored about 30mb of music, and ate AA batteries for lunch. My first iPod totally blew my balls off. It was a very monumental moment in my life. Now, all I want to do is throw my goddamn iPhone into a goddamn wall.

But why am I so pissed at Apple??? Well… where do I begin???

The iPhone

I own a 16gb iPhone 4S, and for a device that calls itself a phone, it’s used for everything but calling, and costs about $100 a month to carry around. It’s the most stressful and maddening device I have ever used in my life. Whenever it locks up or is slow for a few seconds, I see red and want to have a nervous breakdown. It’s also only 16gb, and I am pretty much held prisoner to that amount of hard drive space. I have absolutely no music on my device. I don’t record videos. But when I do I use the front facing camera, because anything you record with the rear camera is an absolute hard drive pig. I guess on the bright side, I can update everyone on Facebook when the line is slow at Starbucks, or if I didn’t get my receipt at Dunkin Donuts. Because, you know, all of that stuff matters. But wait, I hate Facebook. Why the hell do I bring that curse with me everywhere I go now??? I am 100% serious when I say, the iPhone (and other devices alike) has actually made everyone’s lives worse. I was at a birthday party last week and everyone’s iPhones were illuminating their ugly faces as they were looking down ignoring each other. You can’t even have a conversation with another person without them getting distracted by Facebook, or Angry Birds, or Crushed Candy, or Candy Curse or whatever that game is called, or something equally as shitty and pointless on their iPhone. And if you ever try to take it away from them, they will fight you.

I also hate going to shows and having to watch a show through the iPhone screen of an asshole in front me. Put your iPhone down idiot. Nobody gives a fuck you’re at a John Mayer concert, so it doesn’t matter how many #############hashtags you use. You’re an idiot. Enjoy the fucking show without all the bullshit.

There’s nothing more social, than being at a social gathering, checking social media and checking in on social media. It just makes you seem more… “social.”

 

iPhone goes iBrick

Anyhow, before I go trail off on anymore tangents. This is what really put me in a dark place with Apple, and life, quite frankly. I updated to iOS7 back in June. Now I realize, iOS7 had not been released to the public yet, and you’re supposed to be a “developer” and give Apple $100 to be granted use of the new fancy operating system. iOS7 is still in beta, so I’m not going to rip on it because of that. I can live with the bugs, that’s fine; those are being worked out. Years prior, I had “jailbroken” iPhones, so this wasn’t my first barbeque modifying iPhones and doing things “that I shouldn’t be doing.” But what ruffles my feathers is the fact that Apple totally fucked my phone up. Yes…Apple fucked it up. It has nothing to do with me installing hacked software, or a faulty beta operating system; it was Apple that took a big runny shit on me. It literally happened out of the blue last week, as I was checking my Facebook (you know, making good use of my time). The message read something like “you don’t have a developers account to use this operating system.” There were no options; just locked on this screen. So essentially, my iPhone 4S is “bricked.” Everything on my phone up to this point is gone-zo. The last time I backed up my device was when I upgraded to iOS7. So I lost nearly three months of content.

apple3

Why the fuck did you brick my goddamn phone you assholes??

I did nothing wrong. This wasn’t pirated software; I wasn’t stealing anything. It’s a fucking operating system for fuck sake. Apple is shitting me. I’ve given Apple thousands for their products and services throughout the years, and I will not hesitate to buy a droid. I swear to god, I am dead fucking serious. These are the kind of incidents that turn normal people into stone cold serial killers.

Apple ID’s

So, as if Apple bricking my phone and erasing all my content wasn’t enough… I couldn’t just easily restore my phone back to iOS6. I somehow have multiple Apple ID’s. I only want one, but fuck that, YOLO. On top of that, (I’m not making this up) I have about 10 different Apple ID passwords that will periodically work depending on whenever Apple wants them too. The reason why I have so many passwords is because sometimes, none of my passwords will work, so I have to “reset” the password, and you cannot use a password that you’ve previously used before, and they have to have capital and lower-case letters and numbers. And I’m not mistyping anything, or forgetting to turn off the caps lock when entering my passwords. It really makes no logical sense. In a normal universe, when a user changes their password, that becomes the only password that works. But, of course, Apple likes to “Think Different” on such things.

iCloud

Meanwhile, I wouldn’t have lost everything if iCloud actually worked. iCloud is just utterly useless and annoying as hell. I don’t know why, but I’ve given iCloud a couple tries after all the hullabaloo of clouds being the future. It seemed easier to back up my phone ‘in the cloud’ as oppose to my computer that could explode. All I can say is, iCloud sucks. iCloud never could store my content, because I don’t have enough space ‘in the cloud.’ Okay, cool. But why does Apple have to remind me every ten minutes, “Not Enough Storage: This iPhone cannot be backed up because there is not enough iCloud storage available. You can manage your storage in Settings.” That’s great, I remembered when you told me the first time. Notifying me a ten thousand times makes no difference. STFU, iCloud.

apple5

I got it, iCloud. You burned this notification into my screen.

Maps

apple6

According to Apple Maps, they want you to jump your car off a bridge, like some kind of stunt man with no regard for humanity, onto the 280 highway… Is this some kind of prank???

The maps app, my god… what was Apple thinking when they released their own Maps application that replaced Google Maps (which was a perfectly functional map)??? I about shat myself, seriously. Apple Maps is like a 2nd grader’s unfinished science project. Apple Maps is not just an embarrassment to Apple, not just to people who use Apple Products, not just to humans, not just to the Earth, but it’s an embarrassment to this entire Universe. What I hate most is, now Apple Maps is the default map application. So I’ll be using the browser and I’ll need to get directions and then, “what the fuck, why is my phone launching this broken, dysfunctional disaster of a map?” Now, I live in NYC, and Apple Maps still doesn’t take anyone who takes public transit seriously. The 3D thing was kind of cool, I guess. If you ever wondered what NYC would look like if it were rendered on the Nintendo 64, well there you go. Most of that 3D stuff looks like trash and loads slower than snail turds anyways, and not many other cities are rendered at all. Thanks Apple, you guys did a super job with the maps.

But yes, Google did eventually release their own maps app, again. So I’m back to Google Maps, and I use it exclusively, for obvious reasons. But what’s most annoying is I have to either memorize entire addresses, or try to make a selection on a touch screen, copy it, and then paste it into Google Maps. And making a selection, then copying and pasting is no easy task on a touch screen device. It’s a pain the ass. It’s like performing very precise open-heart surgery on a rat or something with your index finger and thumb. I don’t know… that’s the most literal thing I can think it’s like.

Check out the amazing Apple Maps.

 

Siri

apple8

Is that all you have to say?

Siri is the “personal assistant” (poor-man’s personal assistant at that), which debuted about two years ago on the iPhone4S. Apple tried covering their asses at first by saying Siri was a work in progress and was still in “beta.” Well it has been two years, and Siri is still just as sluggish and useless as it was then. I’ll ask where can I get Chinese food and Siri will honestly tell me to go to some abandoned building around the block. Is this another prank by Apple, or are they just that broken??? Have you ever rotated your iPhone horizionally, and then Siri comes up? Now, I know it’s a glitch, but it’s never been fixed. I’ve been in mid conversation with people, and Siri will feel like interjecting with her insane garbage. I will say, Siri is my half serious “personal assistant” (only half-serious), when it comes to escort hunting, or advice for suicide and abortion.

Cables and adaptors are junk

Even all my cables are falling apart. The rubber on the cables is just falling off. The cable is like a shedding dog, until it’s just exposed coiled wire. Totally safe. I’m afraid I will explode if I touch it.

apple9

Time to buy another annual MacBook charger for $90 at the Apple Store.

apple_10

Oh, and while I’m at the Apple store, I’ll pick up another USB for my iPhone. That’ll be $20.

Conclusion

In conclusion; everything Apple touches now, turns to shit. Literally, turns into dog diarrhea. There hasn’t been anything new from Apple in quite a while, and what we do have, is not improving really at all. The problem is, Apple doesn’t even care that they suck. And at the end of the day, Tim Cook and the rest of the dopes at Apple will just laugh in our faces as they continue to be the most profitable company in the world.

 

  • Erik,

    Next time you vent try yelling into your pillow rather than using poop to make an ‘educated’ argument. The web will be a better place for it.

    • Gary

      I switched all my technology to Apple a year ago.Very Bad mistake. Not sure which product sucks more Apple of Microsoft.

      • Apple of course. Apple is shit. It fucking sucks. iCurse the iPad that im using iCurse the keyboard made by apple that im using. Fuck it, fuck it to hell, fuck it back to the fucking stone age!! In other words, APPLE SUCKS ASS!

        • Magnus Nielsen`

          Yes! that’s it. yes!
          How the fuck did I get so emotional.
          must be mid control or something lol!

      • Switch to Linux and Android. They are perfect. And cheap 🙂

  • Jesse Pinkman

    Hey Erik, you really hate Apple, maybe you just need a hug, B1TCH.

    • Stfu asshole…… you ever wonder why the apple symbol has a chunk missing? because android ate it off

      • What does the dam symbol got to do with anything? android was created way before anyway. *facepalm*

  • Beth

    Apple is junk. I went through 4 iPhones in which they all broke on ME. Android all the way.

  • Mike

    Not a geek, but not stupid. I was told that I needed to upgrade my iTunes so that I could support an additional iPod. I’ve been refusing the upgrade notice for quite some time because I figured that it would make my iTunes less usable, less friendly and, really, who needs that? (Could have just stuck with Windows for upgrades like that.) BUT, in order to support that additional iPod, I upgraded. Now iTunes won’t even open and I really can’t afford the $50 (or whatever it costs) phone call to find out how to just UNupgrade; gonna have to trek to an Apple store and hope for the best. And to think that I left Windows because of all of the “improvements” which just made Windows more confusing and no more useful to me. I feel like a sucker. But, really, it’s Apple that sucks, in my NEVER humble opinion. I probably wouldn’t judge Apple so harshly had I been treated better after buying my iMac, you know, being the customer and all, I thought that I might get a little consideration. In retrospect, Apple probably wouldn’t suck at all if I knew how to use it. But, then, in order to have learned how to use it, I would have needed to have been treated like a prospective customer after my purchase. But why treat somebody with that must respect and attention after you’ve gotten their money???

  • Steven Popick

    And this is why l despise Apple. They’ve designed the perfect Hell on Earth with their disappointing, brainwashing products. I gladly accept any Windows Phone or Android over iPhone (except Samsung’s Galaxy line because you know, they suck ;)) My Droid MAXX is serving me better than my 4S on the “new and improved” iOS 7 update. I’ve been an Android junkie since Eclair so I understand plenty of advanced coding but I had to give the i-line a chance. It’s nothing short a status symbol for teenagers/ PlaySkool computer from what I’ve seen in school. Truly a frustrating experience with my “smartphone”.

    • ichigo kurosaki

      IOS7 is the end of apple…..after this no more apple product at my shop…suck the older customer return back to many second apple product after upgrade IOS7…then ask me the apple id ..should i know the person who sold to me im just selling the second iphone/apple..what i can do the brick phone ..now just like dummy at my shop…

    • androiduser

      You got a Droid MAXX – I wish I had that phone but i don’t like verizon – so I got it’s sister phone the Moto X. I’ve used my dad’s iC**p 4 but slow as s**t and home button is frozen. Haven’t looked back on anything else, but I wish I had the Droid for wireless charging and amazing battery.

      Apple sucks – I got a win8.1 laptop (with april update) and Android KitKat phone – I’ve left Apple to the iSheep at school – it’s their wallets lol

    • Paul Racchetta

      I rarely have issues with my Galaxy. Maybe I’m just lucky. Apple products are nothing but problematic piedes of shit. When they work, they work great, but it’s such a rarity, I finally got rid of mine. It’s nice not having to create another password just to scratch your ass. You do, then 10 minutes later, it won’t accept the password. That is what finally broke the camel’s back when it came to my relationship with Apple products.

  • Diane

    LMFAO the funniest rant I’ve read in ages. You’ve perfectly caught the state of paralytic rage one feels when their supposedly ‘perfect’ Apple device goes tits up and then tries to hide the fallout, like some crazed Debutante who’s been caught with TP on her miu miss. Love the vitriol haha… but, seriously, maybe you should switch to Android before you go nuclear 😉

  • Diane

    that was supposed to say ‘miu miu’s’ not ‘miu miss’ but lo and behold, the Apple spellchecker insisted on changing it. Maybe your next rant should be about the @£$%^& spellchecker haha

  • LR

    Wait?

    When did Apple NOT suck?

    • Mister Jerk

      Not since before Jobs was born

  • Andrew goodman

    I agree. Apple is complete trash. If anything I have had WORSE experiences than this gentlemen. To those who posted above saying he should vent into his pillow because his language is extreme, I will say this: given the outrageous, “soaring incompetence” (to misquote Tom Peters) of the company, he is understating the case and exercising considerable restraint. I would post a piece myself but unfortunately when I think of this company there is NOTHING other than four letter words that come to mind. But, wait, I just came up with two, disgusting, pathetic….

    • colin jessett

      well said andrew , and right to the point

  • Droid

    Totally agree. APPLE SUCKS. They no longer stand behind their own products. Instead when you take it into the Apple store to see what’s wrong. They hit you with…it’s not working but you pay x amount for a replacement. ..but don’t tell you the replacement only has a warranty of 3 MONTHS. …only way to know is to read the find print. Ever wonder why so many people are always in the apple store…guess what…more than half are returning a defective products.

  • The android train is unstoppable. If your not going to give me something new then move our of the way.

  • Fuck you apple you fucking stole my fucking money I just put into iTunes you pack of asshols you want to run the world you counts I wish I
    Never bought this ducking apple shit you piece of fucking shit thieving bastards

  • Ledbelly

    All I want to do is simply add a fricken ring tone to my iphone 5s. Any modern computing device would seem a simple task… except that Apple wants the brain stem of your first born in order to “let” you add a ring tone. I can back up to iTunes, transfer purchases, give a fucking blood sample to iTunes, but I cant add a damn ring tone (unless I purchase it through the iStickItToU store). Holy crap, why? Error messages like, this device is synced with another library, if you sync it will send all the apps you purchased into the Netherworld to feed some glutenous demon and you will never retrieve them… ever…

    What a crappy design. I got an idea, lets give bizdev a box of magic crayons that magically turn drawings into iTunes features designed punish any deviants into financial submission. Orwell is too ironic of a comparison, these guys are pig faced brutes with lipstick.

    Apple banks on the least path of resistance, they have engineered the difficulty of changing mobile computing platforms…

    Apple is great at making complex tasks oversimplified (the devil, or demon in Apple’s case, is in the details) and making simple tasks near impossible.

    I can taste the bile in the back of my throat, The Apple I took a bite of has worms. Look what happened to Eve…

  • doug

    I cant understand why people worship a company that deliberately tries to rip them off. The amount of kids that have been tricked into spending money on apps is disgusting. They are dishonest and I hope they go broke.

  • Anthony

    I own an iPhone 4s and a iPad Air and a MacBook Pro I have just updated to ios7 and I think apple sucks because of this. When I answer a call and I put it on loudspeaker it takes 3 secs for the speaker to activate. I am sick of apples greedy attitude, Linux could be being looked at soon. Apple you are only a company, we the people made you and if you keep pissing us off we the people will break you

    • opkthi

      apple sucks chode penis ass fucks

  • RK

    I must admit that for the past year i have grown ever more frustrated with Apple. When i switched from Windows to Apple 8 years ago it was like stepping out of hell into heaven. All of a sudden i was able to create all sorts of creative content with ease and finally could focus on the ART and WORK instead of drivers, freezes and other Windows bs. Even on my 6 and a half years iMac i can have Adobe PS, ID, IL, AP, Pr running simultaneously while running Studio One (DAW) with extensive plugIns and sample libraries, as well as iBooks Author, Pages, Nisus Pro, Word, Pixelmator, BBEdit, Abby Finereader Pro and the usual Mail, Safari and iTunes. And it doesn’t crash. That is true multi-tasking! So there is nothing wrong with Apple Products paying off in performance, stability and usability. At my day job i work with Windows 7 and i want to f…cking kick someone in the balls. So i still believe and prove it on a daily basis that Apple makes the best products.
    BUT: here is the thing that drives me up the wall. For more than a year now Apple is releasing new OSX Versions and Updates to some of their Apps. And it is getting worse by the update. Pages is a useless piece of crap and just an iToy for iKids. Nothing for Pros. They actually took away the Version i used (Pages 4.3) and although i paid to use it, can’t download it from the App-Store! In the end after endless mails and phone calls I had to buy a DVD of iWork AGAIN! I feel ripped off. The OSX Versions can’t be stored anymore or downloaded. I am forced to use only the newest OSX. That means i need updates (free or with charge) and don’t know what to expect. Thus; if my documents will open properly or if Apple removed vital features that can destroy my work.
    I am hijacked!
    After 8 years all my software is MAC and i can’t reinvest in buying everything again, or at least a considerable lot again.
    The thing that made Apple so tremendous was the stability, usability and all-in-one solution. Turn On, open your Apps, create. No fuddling around. But today Mavericks is full of Bugs, the Apple Apps suck and the overall feel is just more and more like using Windows.
    For my work as Multimedia-Book-Creator i have to buy a new Computer this year. It will be an Apple. Because it still works best. But after that i am looking for other alternatives. No way Windows! Windows is just an insult. But Linux and self chosen Hardware.
    Unless Apple focuses on the user again instead on market shares they are bound to loose. Other companies can build toys too for lots cheaper. And perform the same. Home-Users will not pay prices like Pro-Users when the functionality is just for . . . iKids and iGrannies.
    So at the moment i strongly dislike Apple.

    Concerning the iPad:
    I have tested about every Tablet there is. The iPad is alone in its league. If you know what to do it can be used for paying work. In the first week after i bought my iPad 4 64GB WiFi+3G I earned back the complete expense through one job. And it remains vital for my current job. Up till today after one and a half years it NEVER crashed, never bothered me and just worked strong. So i will stick with it. In comparison the other tablets and apps just suck or are unstable. The handling of the tablets everything but reliable. And all in all just a waste of money.

    Concerning iPhones:
    Never had one and never will. But not because of the brand. Everyday i see smartphone users of all sorts wasting their time staring into that little screen. It’s like riding a train with zombies. Turn it off and look up. You might see something quite more interesting and real than your Facebook status or Angry Birds.

    Concerning the App-Store:
    Absolutely despicable! Ripp-Off! I agree to all those complaining.

    Apple WAS Genius. The company (and mostly Steve Jobs imagination) has changed the way we use computers and devices. Especially those devices that weren’t there in such brilliance. But today it’s just a company focusing on pulling money out of your pocket. That won’t last. Like i wrote before; for one more time i am forced to buy an Apple computer. But as soon as i have found software that works on a different OS I’ll be switching.
    Too bad. It really was a great experience once ago. Today i often feel like sitting in front of Windows XP again wasting a third of my time with ridiculous tasks instead of creating art.

    • Frank

      You’re absolutely wrong about the Windows OS. I have used Win XP, Win 8, 8.1 and now I’m waiting for Win 10. So, I’m pretty experienced regarding MS products. All I can say that all of the abovementioned products worked great, let alone that Windows is more professional product than MacOS (just look at the NASA computers, professional avionics, etc. They use Windows or Linux distros). I should say that I owned a MacBook and an iPhone and sold them after 10-11 months of using. They were terribly freezing when I opened PDFs or listened to CDs (iPhone freezing so bad that I had to connect it to iTunes, otherwise it doesn’t work at all). Considering that I decided that I will never buy Apple products again. Now I use a laptop with Win 8.1, a desktop with Ubuntu (Linux distro) and BlackBerry Z smartphone. C’est voila, as they say in France.

  • Karla

    I despise Apple so much. I have an iPhone 4s and it is garbage. This is my third one in just over two years because of battery issues and overheating. Never have I had so much trouble with a phone. This thing freezes, shuts off, gets hot, is so slow I could throw it, randomly changes words while I’m looking right at it so I have to go back and change it at least twice. They keep updating things constantly and changing everything and making it more difficult to do anything, even something so simple as putting music on it from my PC. Everything about this phone is a source of anger for me. Hate it!

  • Paul Racchetta

    You are absolutely right about Apple and valid passwords not working consistently. That’s why I got rid of it and bought an Android and I have yet to have a password problem. Apple sucks.

  • Swaggest, [mostly] not Apple tech products – http://techswag.co

  • JMO

    Within minutes of trying to use AppleID I am ranting and screaming at the computer. It is the most god-awful system I have every seen. And truly, AppleID is capricious. You have no idea if it will accept your current ID/psswd or not or a past ID/psswdn or not. My revenge is that I don’t purchase anything because (APPLE ARE YOU PAYING ATTENTION) your ID system is CRAP. And BTW my ID is AppleIDsucks and if anyone can hack into that you’re welcome to it.

  • DS

    Been an loyal Apple consumer since early 90s when I bought a Mac SE.
    NO MORE.
    The MacBook Pro 2011 failed discrete GPU issue did it.
    Apple finally convinced me that APPLE SUCKS.
    Thanks Apple for bringing me to my sense.

  • Kip

    I agree i know this post is kinda old but i phone is garbage, i tunes sucks i hate apple

  • Jade Sambrook

    Have been an Apple customer for a long time now and have come to the conclusion that Apple sucks and their products are total 100% garbage. Been having a problem with my iPhone 6 and Apple Care has been unable to resolve the issue. I feel like I have been ripped off for buying Apple Care. They were happy to take my money and cant resolve the issue afterwards. Apple Care is a fraud! Wrote to Tim Cook hoping for a resolution or an appeasement like any good company would offer to retain its customers but I got zero results. That is because Apple Dont Care! Never ever again in my lifetime will I buy an Apple product or recommend that somebody do. Apple Sucks big fat hairy sweaty smelly balls! Apple can sit on my middle finger and spin, they are the worst company ever with the worst customer service in the universe. You lost me Apple and trust me Im not the last!

  • PSM

    Ever since Job’s demise Apple has been shit. Apple Music is shit. The fact that my wife cannot use her first gen iPad (which works perfectly well) except for the fact that Apple no longer supports it is shit. ITunes is shit, it always has been shit even in the Job’s era. ICloud is shit. The WWDC is shit. Apple engineers as a whole are shit. Final Cut Pro is shit. Phi Schiller is big time shit. Eddy Cue is another pile of shit. Jonathan Ive is full of himself i.e. shit. And Tim Cook has shit for brains. I haven’t seen this much shit in one place since Balmer was leading Microsoft.

    It’s really amazing such educated people are so lame, ignorant, and produce such crap like Apple Music, Siri, iTunes, iCloud. I know, I’ve been an Apple fan for 30 years, since the days of the Apple II and have developed my share of Apple add-on’s. The day Job’s died I knew within 5 years Cook’s inept would begin to show and I’m dead on.

  • Yes it is me the Lord Satan Steve Jobs. He was going to be probably lonely long along in heaven but not even God could take any of his ideas. Duh

  • ray

    Been involved in IT for many years. Used linux – loved it, used windows – win 7 and windows 10 is very productive. Used multiple server platfoms – all seemed logical. I Thought i would try an apple because my friend told me how fast and how intuitive the OS is. Well i purchased a macbook pro with Yosemite. Everything feels awkward with yosemite. IT is very unproductive IMO. Changing applications that dont appear on quick launch requires opening another screen – like windows 8 delinquent metro tiles. Talk about breaking thought flow. It is also lacking configuration options which you take for granted with other OS. Apple OS Yosemite feels like a sad dumbed down cartoon in comparison to windows 10. The only think i like about the Apple OS is the terminal – many linux commands can be run. Then i hear the apple fanboys yelling “but apple does not get viruses!” If you understand OS underneath the hood, you would understand why winblows is a target (one major reason is that you don’t write a virus that will only infect 10% of the worlds computers). A virus can be written for any OS that runs a wide variety of programs. A mac is not immune at all. Infact this illusion that a mac is impenetrable is a load of bollocks…Like any OS it can be infected…http://www.digitaltrends.com/computing/can-macs-get-viruses/ Then the updates…. OMG i have to submitt my credit card details to get updates? F-OFF. Now the track pad. Really quirky… I hope like hell they fix it up. In some instances it becomes non responsive to certain gestures. The keyboard… square tiles? what where they thinking! feels like your fingers will slip off – you cant feel the center of the keys so finger registration becomes a hit and miss. Now the hardware quality feels good. And the screen is great. But the OS is IMO very substandard. My evaluation of apple: Hardware quality is good – keyboard design is shit – trackpad has issues – screen is awesome – OS sux – big time

    how about this
    Apple is the devil.
    Sorry that’s insulting to the idea
    of the devil!
    Apple deserves to be executed. If
    you know of a way. I’m in.
    Controlling people is a giant pet peeve of mine.
    I’m not one to be controlled and somehow
    through my “”””””intuitive”””””” ways,

    ALL involved the killings of the 911 Tragedy.

  • Erik, finally someone who gets it.
    The truth hurts.

    My Apple ID: Fuckapple99

    kicked back to me with
    “duplicate comment, looks like
    you’ve already said that”

    how about this
    Apple is the devil.
    Sorry that’s insulting to the idea
    of the devil!
    Apple deserves to be executed. If
    you know of a way. I’m in.
    Controlling people is a giant pet peeve of mine.
    I’m not one to be controlled and somehow
    through my “”””””intuitive”””””” ways, I continue
    to devour new ideas and ways to avoid the control freaks in this world. The universe is an awesome
    place and I have found through my insane truth
    seeking appetite, that’s who has my back, the Uni
    verse.
    Apple is just another numbers game just like
    the 911 pieces of shit who crashed their pencil
    dicks into buildings filled with innocent people.
    They are clearly the definition of stupid.
    It doesn’t get more stupid. stupendously
    stupid.

    Spot on. Apple doesn’t care what it’s users have to say. they haven’t for years. they have become what they once despised. they no longer give a crap about usability, or interface design tenets, or anything but profit from selling gizmos to drooling morons. F Apple

  • Les Norman

    I agree.

    Every time there is an upgrade something stops working!

    APPLE STOP TRYING TO COMPETE WITH Microsoft. You don’t have to publish updates every fre months which then crash professional machines.

  • World’s Biggest Hater of Apple Craporation

    My God I hate everything about this company now. Just hate hate hate hate hate. At least I can say that here, because Apple Craporation keeps censoring my comments on the ‘user support forum’ where people go to do the work that Apple Craporation should be doing. And I have been using their POS products for 32 years–since before they were faecal-worthy. Ta.

    Dude, I have had every single one of those problems, with the exception of the phone being bricked. What really get’s tricky is when you get married and your wife also has an account. Then, if you try to download previous purchases from one account, the other account will be locked on that device for three months. It is crap!

  • Lisa

    This is my first time using an apple phone. I have the iphone 6. And i have come to the conclusion that THIS IS THE WORST PHONE IVE EVER OWNED!! By the second month of having this phone i can no longer take pictures . I cant download any apps! The apps i did have like my banking app was deleted out but not by me! When i tried to download it back on it says i dont have enough space! I havent been able to EVER update the phone due to lack of space! Now when i go to delete old texts it wont delete them! When i send texts sometimes people get them but mostly they just disappear into thin air. Never shows i even sent them. Same with receiving text messages. Its a crap roll on whether i’ll receive them or not. Cant tell you how many disputes this has caused me with family friends and coworkers because of all the miscomminication due to missing texts. Sometimes when i text MY LETTERS ARE UPSIDE DOWN. Siri changes its voice and accent on its own regularly. One time i was with my sister in the car and asked for directions from Siri and its response was “REALLY” then it proceded to tell me this was about me not it!! My sister was freaked out and floored! Tells everyone what she heard that day. Its creapy!! This phone cant text, cant give directions, cant download apps Cant take videos, cant take pictures ,cant upgrade , cant do backups! No better then my flip phone from the 90’s! And im still paying on it at a whopping 780.00 bucks! Cloud just as bad! Paid for more storage too. Didnt help. I HATE APPLE! LOVED MY ANDROID! One of the worst mistakes inever made and now im stuck with this piece of expensive, worthless garbage!

  • Jeff

  • John Lewis

    Erik, I agree with most everything you’ve said here, and I’ve been a Rabid Apple Fan Boy since the mid 1980s. But the CABLES? Srsly, dude: TLC works wonders 😉
