please redpill me on apple /g/. i understand its part of the board to trash on apple, which i like very much. the problem is that google only shows me what i want to see! im trapped in its bubble of what it thinks i will enjoy so whenever i type apple on youtube i get videos ranting about it (wich i like very much). despite how much i love to hate apple and bully its users, i still think there might be reasons why people like it ... maybe some feature or some advantages of their systems. what im trying to say is: even though apple is clearly shitting on its consumer's heads( and they seem to enjoy it ), i still believe there are upsides to apple products that me, trapped in my bubble, cannot experience

Apple only has desktops going for it. Their iMacs are wonderful.

Google makes the best phone, the Pixel 3 XL, the best tablet/laptop, the Pixel Slate, the best hybrid laptop, the Pixel book, the best home devices, etc, etc.

Microsoft makes a great desktop keyboard, the Surface keyboard, and mouse, Surface mouse.

Chrome OS can now replace macOS, Google's software is excellent.

1. Apple doesn't care that it's not reaching every person in the planet. They know the people that they want to reach, and they know what they want, and they reach them well.

2. Companies like Microsoft, Google, Samsung, Huawei spend billions of dollars manipulating YouTubers and the mass media portraying Apple as an evil empire, because they know they can't compete with Apple's consumers and developers goodwill and market force (Apple stores, Apple fans, Apple services). Most of the /g/ sees that, but they chose to lie to themselves, because it's convenient for them.

> so whenever i type apple on youtube i get videos ranting about it (wich i like very much)

if you're a musician, get an iPad. The amount of dirt cheap high quality music apps there is unmatched. And before you go on about muh VSTs, many iPad apps give you an intuitive interface that makes music making easy and immediate unlike any DAW, no matter how unskilled you are. HOWEVER, the new iPad Pro is not worth the price so don't get that one.

If you're not a musician but a web developer, get a thinkpad and install hackintosh on it. Many web devs agree that MacOS is great for webdev and it's not because they're starbucks drinking hipsters (though many are), it's because web dev is much easier in unix systems, and you can test your websites in Safari.

As for iPhones, they're all shit.

Hey, chump fuck, those things you criticized have been obsessively worked on/out and upgraded. You would assume otherwise because you're in a cult, where software updates are pushed out every other decade. Rather than calling other technologies shit, pull your head out of your ass and suck on your phallus modeled after Tim Job's throbbing gay Pod.

>> No.68874941

There is virtue in simplicity. It’s the whole experience, the ecosystem, and they like the design. They are well designed products (visually appealing).
Take a car for example. Some people want a manual transmission. They want to work on it themselves. We’re all for that. But some people don’t want to deal with extra shit. They want to get in, push a button, and it just runs. Gas and brake. It will parallel park for you. It lets you know when someone is in your blind spot so you don’t need to look. It stops for you when you’re not paying attention.
It’s luxury.
Now go to /o/ and ask them how much they enjoy a car that does everything automatically. “It’s not fun to drive” “It takes away user control” “It’s limiting” “I can do it all myself.” It looks just like this board when you talk about apple. And you have the people who secretly dislike the luxury because they cannot have it.
Of course, there’s the pricing and all, which is high. But that is really relative to your budget and what you would spend on a product. Luxury products in general have bigger profit margins than average.

Most people here are underage children that can't afford macs so it's popular to trash them, although the iphone is good and mbp are good they're simply not worth it. I have a 2012 MBP (replaceable components still available on it), an iPhone SE (small, fast, headphone jack with jailbreak) but the new devices suck.

They're good if you use it for a certain usage but shit for general purpose for its value unless you get them used. If you do audio processing, you need one for the low latency and the great software. I use a thinkpad most of the time, hackintosh will serve you better than a real mac on desktop (although they were unrivaled when retina and high res screens were only available from stuff like the iMac) it's no longer the case now. The iPad is also the only good tablet, which doesn't mean that they're great, just that most tablets are shit.

If you're wanting a good user experience and don't mind paying more, it's not bad. I upgraded android phones every few months or year, and with the iPhone i'm gonna be good for many years.

I own an iMac 2011, MBP 2012, iPhone SE and iPad 3 all purchased after a year or more and total cost was less than 1K. I also have a custom desktop, a hackintosh laptop I used for 3 years with the yoga wifi card that was the only one that would work due to drivers but now usually use an x250 on linux sometimes docked to external monitors and my model M.

tl;dr don't pay full price and you'll get great hardware regardless of brand.

not just for that. As I said, webdev in macOS is generally easier all around. Terminal is much better than powershell. And yes, the "testing software on its ecosystem" part is important, since whether we like it or not there are millions of potential Safari users. You can also use it to become an iOS developer. The play store is a fucking trash can compared to the app store, and you're twice as likely to earn money in it since iOS hipsters buy more apps and IAPs than android pajeets

Apple has a nice interface for the most part, but if you wanna do anything other than iConform, such as actually send files back and forth from a computer that ISN'T running macos, you might as well just get a samsung.

I have no real complaints about the iPhones and iPads, as long as you grab them for less than 50% MSRP. I am very hesitant about the Macs. I *may* pick up a 2018 Mini, but I don't like how everything 2013+ has been anti-diy/anti-consumer.

Over priced hardware but MacOS is a god-tier fully POSIX compliant UNIX system.

>> No.68879811

>i still think there might be reasons why people like it ... maybe some feature or some advantages of their systems
Some people do serious work using MacOS machines. It's a nicely put together unix environment, has relatively more support from big corporates and smaller devs alike, and priced reasonably compared to other commercial unixes out there. It's just their lead designer went full autism ever since big boss isn't around anymore, and their current soiboi CEO lacks a ball or two.

As for iOS, it's cancer. Its only redeeming point over Android is the very fine grained permission and background process control. I know LineageOS exists, but I don't have as much time and energy like I used to.

MacOS basically perfected gesture controls, which is something Linux and other Unix systems still struggle with. I think it's a good OS for productivity due to how natural the feels.

However, the hardware is overpriced and everything else is just shallow marketing.
