can't really be mad at kids for yelling and crying in public. The only thing that separates me from them is a flimsy patchwork of coping mechanisms, some of which even sometimes work

like how fucking humiliating is it that I need to ask t-mobile, like I need to call someone, and beg them to let me unlock my fucking bootloader, and if I don't want to do that I need to wipe it completely, download an international firmware, download an old rom, unlock the bootloader, wipe the phone for the second time, and then install a different rom for the second time that afternoon just so that I can,,, not have t-mobile literally own my device

idk about you but if you sell me a computer with a processor whose documentation I can't read on a board whose schematics I can't buy and which I can't repair, which is only designed to run software I can't audit or change

in what sense do I actually own that computer?

It's really amazing to me how many folks don't realize how bad vertical integration is for markets, even when the people doing the vertical integrating are your favorite team.

One of the key features of Apple's success has been using the most appropriate processor technology for each device in each meta-generation: 68k, PPC, x86, x64, and now ARM.

But that relies on a market where processor makers are interested in building architectures they can sell to Apple as well as other companies. Unless they expect to spend a ton of money on CPU research - not development, but real, speculative, no guarantees research - forever, the move to build but not sell their own chips is putting market dominance ahead of actual sustainable innovation.

And that sucks!

the sound of millions of boomers going outside and hearing birdsong and children playing and rain on a tin roof for the first time in fifteen years. their hearts begin to heal, they begin to care about others again. then someone yells "hey facebooks back up" and they do qanon 2
