apple this, apple that. you really think that bashing apple for the fact that rain falls is so trendy? you think that android is so open, and
do-no-evil google is so great, that because at the core of your smartphone sits an opensourced, linux-based operating system, that whatever how many
snooping and evil to the bones closed components hardware manufacturers have added on top of it, it's right to blame apple for all the evils of this
world just because it's overpriced? guess what. think again, because you're making yourself look like some crowd-following, easily manipulated by
others, brainless geek-wannabe.
and take a look at the mirror when you're at it. apple is to blame no more than people buying their hardware. if people would refuse to buy apple's
toys until they move the manufacturing to the US, apple would do just that. but people won't do that, because everything is made in china and
they're fine with that, so they're as much to blame as apple is.
the biggest blame belongs to foxconn though. but guess what, they're manufacturing tons of stuff, not only iphones and ipads (which are 'oh so apple
so oh so amazzzing bashing target'), but also all sorts of pc components (motherboards and stuff), as well as at least some parts for other
smartphone manufacturers as well. without workers abuse in china, you would probably have either no pc at all, or would have to pay a lot more for
so either stop buying things that were made thanks to someone's suffering (do you have any idea what's going on with people in africa, mining rare
ores for electronic companies?), or at least blame the ones that brought it to this world.
