Why Apple Sucks

10. November, 2017

People often ask my why I hate Apple products. My answer: “I’m not compatible.”

I was always looking for a good example what I mean. In my hands, Apple products crash, show weird behavior or important features are utterly broken.

Case in point: Apple has released an “everyone can write an App” course on iTunes. Here is what I did:

  1. I clicked the link
  2. itunes.apple.com opened in my web browser
  3. A few seconds, nothing happened
  4. Then I got a message box: “Do you want to open this link in iTunes?”
  5. Uhh… yes?
  6. iTunes opened. Showing my music library. Where is the product that you were supposed to open? Thanks for wasting 10 seconds of my life.
  7. Clicked the link again.
  8. Clicked “yes” again
  9. Now iTunes shows a page with “Swift Playgrounds”. Probably what I wanted to see, I’m not sure anymore.
  10. I click on the product.
  11. iTunes opens a web page in my browser. WTF???? What’s the point of having iTunes when it can’t even download something!?
  12. The web page says “Please install iTunes.”
  13. I give up.

That’s one example in which Apple products waste my time. It’s almost always like that.

Apple, I hate you.


Samsung Asks For More Money … From Apple

13. November, 2012

A short time ago, a jury decided that Samsung owes Apple roughly[1] one billion dollars for patent infringement.

Now Samsung raised prices for the chips they make for Apple.

Hm …

Makes me wonder …

Is that a clever scheme to make Apple pay for its own license fees?

Samsung: “Can we pay even higher license fees?”

Apple: 😦

Samsung: “Just asking …”

Update: Apparently, the original report isn’t correct (good luck verifying this claim): Samsung never asked for more money but it’s still a funny idea.

[1]: With that kind of money, who cares for decimals?
