Apple makes me sad, again…

The maker of Macs and iPhones — Apple — is suing the little guy, a small company because their logo is a pear looking like it’s hanging or been picked off a tree. Really Apple? This is not the first time, is it?! See this news story about it.

Additionally, Apple has sold a piece of their soul and probably will continue to do so to the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) when they ask them to control what apps are in the app store like for Hong Kong residents. ‘Tis very sad.

I love their hardware and products but they are overpriced. I used to own a few Macs but ended up selling both of them. Will never buy one new again.

Lastly, it takes more mousing movement and keyboard strokes to get things done on macOS. Avoid Mac’s if you have carpal tunnel syndrome or another RSI(repetitive stress injury) in your wrists, hands, or arms. Will blog about it later showing a side by side table comparison of macOS vs Windows 10 vs XFCE or a similar Linux environment.

Tis a shame. Apple used to rock. Please stop it. Don’t sell your soul for a buck.
