Apple Sucks (and can suck it)
By: Gemma Porter
I come from a very tech based family, I was surrounded with computers and matrix printers and huge cell phones and the internet before most people knew what they were or could do. My dad watched proudly as I designed 3-D art on the computers, joined list serves and understood the power of the internet as early I could write the. Macs have been my choice for engaging interesting things for years.
However on a recent evening I was prompted to update my iPhone to iOS 6, after waiting a very long time for the download to complete the whole phone system crashed. No amount of button pressing would turn the phone back on until 10-15 minutes later when the diabolical phone finally allowed me to switch it on only to show it had to be connected to iTunes and recovered. Meaning I would have to loose all my work notes, personal photos and apps.
Four hours later the mostly complete phone finally was recovered but the fact that apple pushes updates knowing full well that the Internet is abounding with complaints of the same sort is unsavory at best and perhaps worse for them and the marginal revenue is that many costumers, I personally know decades long loyal apple fans, who are starting to give up on iEverything. The user interfaces are beginning to go from bad to f**king unbelievable and the devices come out in new versions so fast people ca not help but feel screwed over for buying one month too soon.
Apple, I am sad to say, can suck it and may not be sucking up my money anymore.
