sure, sure, an antitrust lawsuit, fine, but how about just making them use the same charger as everyone else

I thought our current approach to that kind of stuff was to wait for the EU to do it for us.

I thought I saw that future iphones in eu were supposed to get USB c, and Apple was passed about it.

It's been what? 13 years of non government farkery with smart phones. It was a nice run.

Now 50% of apps must be coded in windows CE. or god forbid palm os

Hey Biden, a couple threads down the DEA is robbing legit (state-wise) cannabis businesses. Maybe spend a couple minutes calling off the spooks?

Modern apple phones have qi (wireless) charging already?

Apple has barely innovated anything in the last fifty years, it's time to break them into seventeen regional companies.

Apple's competitors are angry at its ability to protect its customers, and are throwing everything they have to take that away.
 
2021-10-26 2:41:16 AM  
I mean just look at it:

> but The Information's sources say that the DOJ's investigation is broader because it is also examining issues like Sign in With Apple, App Tracking Transparency, and location tracking restrictions

Facebook and Google can't force you to lot in with their advertising-linked sign-ins? ANTITRUST

Facebook and Google can't implant every webpage you visit with tracking becaons? ANTITRUST

Facebook and Google can't track your every move? ANTITRUST

If the motivation behind this witchhunt wasn't obvious already, it should be now.

That's the kind of "Freedom" Republicans like; the freedom for corporations to screw customers, employees and the environment as hard as humanly possible.

Well, I'm not particularly eager for the government to force Apple to let Google into my browser. Feel free to recite the satanic ritual to install AdWords in your brain, though, if that's your pleasure.

yeah

back in the day, lost count of the number of times some amerifarker arrogantly lectured me about all your superior freedom.  even then it sounded more like licence/excuse to be horrible to each other, rather than actually being free.
It's now apparent that freedom also means lack of control/protection from getting bent over by big business.

these days I only see that complacent, 'we're number one!' crap from trolls.

it is honestly a very different tone now, in this context.  probably not as obvious to you.

Restricting what your competition is able to do while you do it in front of them is a very sure way to get antitrust lawsuits


And yes, we know you are stupid enough to actually believe that apple does not do the same level of information tracking that everyone else does because "they told you they dont"

That is just a Trump level stupid thing to say. Apple needs its customers to buy never phones year after year.

Apple will get rid of features and tell its customers to love it to bump the bottom line.

Antitrust? Is it because I have to buy a new case every time I upgrade my phone because they've moved the ports and buttons around by a few millimeters? Cause someone should go to jail for that
 
2021-10-26 6:21:15 AM  
Anti-trust suit against Apple?

Huh. That's kind of funny because at one point Gates was keeping Apple afloat purely to prevent himself from being accused of having a monopoly.

Giving me the ability to protect my privacy (it's an opt in, I turned enabled it, Apple didn't force it) is now worthy of antitrust?  And Apple is removing features?  I've read some stupid shiat on Fark and this just adds to it.  Now tell me how the electric grid can't handle me charging my car.  I'll wait.
