Fireproof: I'm reading this on an iPhone that's about to turn 3 years old and is still going strong. Both of my MBPs lasted about 7 years. But sure, Apple products only last months.
Also, I guess this answers the question of if you were serious or not when you were complaining about liberals "and their fancy vans" spreading coronavirus into your town.


Maybe they did. But didn't Apple used to introduce a new product every year, at least? Yeah, those iphone numbers just went up and up each year, and each year people stood in line to get them. Do you think I don't remember that? Apple is the king of mindless consumerism. They invented some aspects of becoming a Brand, instead of a good product--which they are OK products, but so what? In the land of consumerism, even the best products are soon disposable, just like they're supposed to be.

I guess you don't feel like addressing any of that. Like you don't feel like addressing when I said that the tourists were growing covid cases around here like crazy, since they all have their fancy vans now, and they HAVE to use them. We're all sporting people now, that's why we all have vehicles that look like we're going to South America for a year, instead of to Starbucks. And if you buy it, you must use it. NOT buying something is just........well, why? Why would anyone do this?

Cherry picking doesn't make you smarter, it just makes you look dumb if I come back. I remember what I post, and I write clearly. You're just so addled by advertising and being a vapid consumer that you can't see any of this.

I don't give a shiat if you see it or not, it's not just my opinion. These are fully-developed BUSINESS MODELS that have been used for years on dumbasses just like you. So you got a good product that worked--whoopee. That used to be the standard. Now you have to brag because your product is still around after a couple of years.

And I bet you really care about the environment too, while you're blowing $50,000 a year on disposable entertainment. Such is our culture, and you're the victim. And you have the nerve to badmouth me. Ha. You're the one who can't examine yourself or our deeply disturbing culture deeply.
We're going to DIE because of this kind of ignorance. That's also a scientific fact. Go look it up.

I just posted this in the other thread below, but HERE.

A now relative-by-marriage has worked for Apple for years. We got into a discussion about consumerism (a very short discussion, because nobody lasts long), and he's telling me how Apple recycles all its stuff, and how they make things out of recycled products, etc etc.

I said, I don't care. They advertise like crazy, they invented a product that is obsolescent in a year, breaks easily, has a very prominent Brand, so that you must buy APPLE and nothing else (all of its stuff is proprietary, I notice), and since they make a ton of profits, it goes without saying that they are exploiting resources and people to make money for the higher ups, and they're very good at it. Not everyone will go to the devious lengths that Apple and other huge companies will go to, to make bank. Other people and companies have ethics.

Do they use any of their profits to pay off say, miners in South Africa who mine all those rare minerals they use? Do they use any of their profits to make products that will last for years, and not months? Do they make their products in the US, and pay US wages for products that will mostly be sold in the US? Hahahahaa, of course not.

So that was the end of that conversation.

/And I totally left out the data harvesting--Apple has always been in the forefront of that, too. Yeah, they totally respect your privacy--except for everything they know about you. Now tell your apple smartspeaker how secure you feel with her in charge. You idiot.
