“Buy your Mom an iphone” Tim Cook- CEO Apple.
There are compatibility problems when texting between android and apple phones, and Apple doesn’t care. They want a world where everything is apples, no oranges.
Let’s get past the “is it fair” or “is it right”… and let’s get past whether or not this a capitalist greed or communist my way or the highway, because really- no one is changing anyone’s else’s mind on any of these things. We believe what we want to believe, we pick a side and we mate with it for life, and we don’t want to entertain any other thoughts…
Is that a fair way to look at what the world has become?
I’m right- you’re wrong.
Na na na foo foo – stick tongue out emoji…
Isn’t the real issue that no one wants to work together in tandem to solve a common problem or reach a common goal? That no one is willing to compromise on anything? How bipartisan policy is just a word in a very old and dusty encyclopedia from the days where we had to work together because the enemy “out there” was greater than the one across the street?
When I read the Tim Cook comment, and I saw the ads that Apple has put on the information kiosks on the street, I couldn’t help but think about what kind of propaganda do we have going on here? What kind of childish, bullying behavior is at play? Was Tim Cook the kid picked last for the team, and now he’s concocting some cartoon level revenge play? I don’t know. It’s not a particularly good look for the CEO of a major corporation that has lots of information on everyone. And I mean everyone.
Do you trust this man with your money and your secrets? Ever say something you shouldn’t have? Ever sent a picture you shouldn’t have?
We had the cola wars, now we have the cell phone wars.
Do we really need more wars? Or are all wars just senseless and a waste of time and money?
