He's excellent in both the technical side and general life rants.

Does get a bit keen to paint Apple as cackling evil scheming McEviltons though. They're arseholes, but things like third party displays on iPhones - I honestly don't think they purposefully broke them in that update (that they later patched) purely out of spite. They'd have known there'd have been an outcry and loss of goodwill (which there was) so why bother. But nooo they do these things just to screw you!

Other than the excessive cynicism he's very good.

Maybe he is good at UX and maintainability but designers usually just do a representative survey of their customers.

I applaud his effort to keep technology from being throw-away. If my phone breaks, throw it away. If an electronic component on my laptop breaks, throw it away. Same on my video card, stereo receiver, etc. The whole movement toward throwing away anything that doesn't work is bullshit.

It wasn't always this way. Your furnace has an electronic control board inside. If an IC breaks you don't throw away the entire furnace. In most cases you replace the board. Getting people to throw shit away is nothing more than greed. Back to the furnace example, companies found that they were lasting too long with regular maintenance. So they ended up cheaping out on the heat exchangers, making them out of thin cheap metal. It's common for heat exchangers to develop a crack right after the warranty period ends. Guess what, it's a $800-1200 part. Then you add labor, which is high because replacing that part takes an extensive amount of work. You're better off throwing the furnace away and buying a new one.

Ah so you are an Jew York kike. No wonder you have zero concept of the difference between being an arrogant and blind prick versus having self respect.

Bragging about your tiny singular repair shop 24/7 and how it somehow puts you head and shoulders up of people you're criticizing constantly who are far more excessive is not only arrogance but it is hypocritical and filled with irony as well.

The people who do the things Rossmann constantly criticizes are more successful than he and could just as easily use the same logic he does constantly to disregard and belittle him as well.

For all his talk of being amazing at what he does he fails at basic soldering techiques and applications, his solutions are often fixes that could be done in ways they don't require him to end up destroying the computer when his fix fails, he uses too much flux, and he rants and raves about how he's amazing while Apple is terrible meaning there's more resentment than "hardware sucks".

Planned obsolescence is planned. I agree that they aren't screw you for cause of malice, but they're screwing you for cause of money. To state that they, or any tech company, don't mean to screw the customer is naive, and supporting that statement with the argument:
>if broken update, then outrcry+loss of goodwill
>outcry+loss of goodwill is bad for the company
>rolling out update is insensible
>therefore they didn't mean to screw the customer
is beyond retarded. Limiting your analysis of metabusiness to purely rational stipulations in the modern world will limit the strength of your evaluation. Beyond being a dated aphorism, Hanlon's razor isn't nearly comprehensive enough to sufficiently analyze the moral decisions of anything, except for literal morons.

I would say that he actually isn't a cynical guy, but merely a sensible businessman that knows which business practices disagree with him on a fundamental level. You sound pretty naive, on the other hand. Try to remember that with big companies, it's always about money and how much they can get away with before the backlash surpasses the threshold of no return. Whether they intended to screw you isn't the question. Facebook harvests all data and screws everyone and turns a fat profit while raping the privacy of innocently ignorant people. That these huge tech companies become demons to make a profit without setting out to become demons doesn't mean their actions aren't demonic.

People can fail out of college for reasons other than competence. The guy clearly has mental issues and an antagonist social disposition. There's no way he could have cut it at a college in this decade. Some people have that special kind of non-DSM autism where they can't separate the actual environment from what the environment is meant to be. Their brains end up sperging out and render them unable to utilize their mental faculties at the high levels within their capacity when they're in the right environment, i.e., at home, with self-driven learning. Just because people learn differently and can't adjust to the sick environments of modern college campuses doesn't mean that they're incompetent. He clearly knows what he's talking about, and being arrogant or mean spirited is irrelevant.

His arguments are correct though. Apple is built on the exploitation of shitty labor laws in the third world, pandering to fanboys-turned-cultists, cutthroat capitalist practices including corporate espionage, straight up lying to consumers, data harvesting, and shameless planned obsolescence. The success of small business owners from working hard while abiding by decent moral consciences is infinitely more deserving of respect than the success of ethically void megacorps, and the paths to success are worlds apart.
