Boy, does this thread make me feel old. Apple was always a toxic company, their marketing and PR teams just got lucky that people forgot all about that since Steve has been dead for years.

Tech is toxic. I never understood why Apple as a company ever got a free pass. It was known that Steve Jobs was a shiatty CEO. Great marketer, but not a great direct manager.

I'm old enough, yet still young enough to still have a memory, to remember F* cked Company.

Early on, you'll get some good, valid, sometimes lifesaving info.  As time goes on, get ready for revenge postings simply to get payback for petty grievances and just assholes being assholes, anonymously.

Anyhow, good to get some real true tidbits out now before it's all Monday soup.

AmbassadorBooze: Don't buy apple products.

Problem solved.

I have gone almost 40 years without buying apple products.  Or from another perspective, an infinite amount of time without apple.
And almost 15 years without windows products.  Windows XP was the last windows product I bought.  I am not a uberman from the 27th dimension.  I am a chud on the internet.  So all you good people who are full humxns and better than me can learn to not use apple or windows.  If you can't you have been defeated by a drunk chud on the internet.

Take this as a challenge.  Be better than a chud on the internet.  Choose of your own free will to not use apple or microsoft.  Choose to be free.  Clearly good people who are greater than a chud can be free from the overmasters.


Open source is just as full of toxic personalities.

Hell, if anything it can even worse because such cults of personality develop within the community.

The tech world in general has some serious issues when it comes to becoming a cesspool of toxic behaviors.

When you take creative people and put them under a yolk of marketing and sales, don't be surprised when they snap and push back.

I've never worked with a bad intentioned techie, but told off many greedy hang-me-ons from the 'soft' portion of the business.

Tech, like art, should not be subjugated to deadlines and budgets.

If we want nice things, we need to let the people capable of envisioning them, designing and researching do their thing unimpeded. Otherwise they just might use their voluminous skills to the wrong end. And then there is crying they were mean to us all over the place.

It never ceases to amaze me that humans don't recognize merit correctly; either you are above API making the system or a techno-serf to be given order via the API.
