Rotten Apple


I do not dislike Apple because their products are closed and locked down to block other people’s innovation, unless they pay exorbitant royalties. I do not dislike Apple because they are too expensive. I do not dislike Apple because many of their innovations were invented by others and appropriated by Apple (Mouse and graphic interface from Xerox PARC, tablet from 2001 Space Odyssey, multi-processors from Intel, etc.) I do not dislike Apple because they are twice to three times the price of equivalent power in a newer Windows or Linux computer.

This graphic, from the US Uncut page on Facebook, explains why I dislike Apple
