    Default Apple Rants and general vitriol....

    just though we should collate them

    i see a lot of backlash against them from various sources...

    this isnt a rant, but definite anti apple goings on in one of their potentially biggest markets (if they release a cheaper iphone5 like rumoured

    The People's Daily newspaper, the party's traditional mouthpiece, in a front-page article on Monday accused the electronics maker of declining journalists' requests for interviews and issuing an "empty and self-praising" response to a recent critical report by China's national television broadcaster. The article was accompanied by a cartoon with a figure representing the company, saying, "Apple statement: empty."

    i think the line "and fully complied with local laws and regulations." can in every instance be translated as "we're trying our hardest to circumvent, bend and otherwise wilfully ignore the wishes of the customer, in favour of skirting around the slack laws to increase profit"

    I take it you're referring to the now-infamous documentary that appears to have been promoted by the State in an anti-West move and then backed up by bribing celebrities and others to agree on the Chinese version of Twitter?

    Sure it did... it's in your post - "a recent critical report by China's national television broadcaster". Isn't that a documentary?

    FAAK

    $2 billion over budget and counting...

    so *$5* billion in total... DOUBLE FAAAAAAK

    Citing five anonymous sources, the publication notes that the stretched budget would make Apple Campus 2 more expensive than the World Trade Center complex currently under construction.

    Apple Campus 2 nearly $2 billion over budget and behind schedule, says Bloomberg | The Verge

    EDIT: though i will point out that the finances of Apple Inc are in vastly better shape than the U.S and A

    His son "innocently" bought over 300 items, once or twice one could say fair enough, 300 times. Tough shit, you bought it, you pay for it.

    one thing that annoys the hell out of me are the constant pop ups for other games and apps that plague you if you go for a "lite" or free version of an app.

    so tackling that - id be all for it

    but pulling the plug on a single app out of the blue when it had been accepted and been on the app store for a substantial length of time is a bit much

    not to mention if they were actually gonna enforce the rules a good quarter or more of the apps on the app store would have to be pulled

    Earlier this week Apple unceremoniously dropped AppGratis, a popular curation service with 12 million users, from the App Store, affecting 45 employees and leaving its CEO stunned. Apple didn’t give too much explanation other than that AppGratis violated two clauses from its App Store Review Guidelines.
