I would so fucking gladly buy a mac, but I hate supporting their product strategies. Instead of listening to their customers and their needs, they push stupid changes and make their customers adapt. Give back the headphone jack you cunt.

You can say something is shit without having a viable alternative. I'm not a commie.

>> No.80094645

The problem is that Apple forces the hand of consumer "preferences" by giving them an ultimatum. If consumers like the headphones jack, well they COULD keep their old phones, but Apple then stops sending those devices updates or proactively goes in and removes compatibility of apps. Then other sites and services update their backends and the apps break completely. Consumers then are forced to drop something they like because they've been forced into a corner.
The open and flexible nature of Android means you can patch together your own solution if you really, really don't want to get rid of the old hardware.

Reminder to report Apple advertisement and spam
I love how the mods leave this up, but remove my posts that tell people to report advertisement because it's off topic - it's a thread about advertising Apple products and my post is about Apple advertisement, how is this off-topic?

These autists aren't paid, be sure. Apple doesn't need these dumb guys to ad on fucking 4chan. Usually 4chan users are smarter than buying a shitty overpriced laptop based on a spyware fork of BSD and a phone that has a lot of telemetry while being expensive as fuck. Some of 4chan users are so dumb and think if a product is overpriced, this means, it's good and call the others poor people. Let the normies leave because they are the ones that lose, not only money but also time. macOS is used by autists.

>> No.80095532

i used to be a crazy schizo so i use linux and graphene os but having a widely support ecosystem that doesn't make me look like a schizo autist is really important to me. the price isn't a real thing. a mac mini is $700 and an SE i think is $400 but i only buy phones used so its more like $200. as for laptops i dont use them for ergonomic reasons but $1000 is a fine price, i guess.

*posted from the browser.
Apple gives a false sense of security not even open source, at least with android you can make a custom ROM, not only that you can't even use apps outside of the apple store so no f-droid. So you're fucked.

>> No.80095711

I use lineage os and linux currently. the issue is i really hate the perception of being some autist. I have 3 monitors (1440p, 165hz) set up right now for example and a fourth (2160p, 60hz) i use sometimes. that kind of shit is super weird and cringe. linux? weird and cringe. lineageos? weird and cringe. knowing how to flash an os onto your phone or use the dark web? what am I, a pedophile? what do I have to hide? normies unironically think these things. I just want to be a normal and the mac eco system is cool and comfy. also it is totallg better than you all think. stock android being less private and secure is a good example no one gets shit on for using stock android when they should. if you use google search thats worse than using applel.

apearence is very important. what something looks like is often more important that what it is

>> No.80095754

Apple ecosystem is the worst thing from freedom. You can't connect nothing less than Apple products and you have to pay more bucks for a charger because Apple cuts a tax. Also, mac is based on BSD and full of telemetry, why not stick with something actually secure like OpenBSD or FreeBSD?

>> No.80095813

Just like normies parrot the meme that privacy is only important if you have something to hide, I will unironically tell you appearance is only important if you have someone to suck up to. And the only reason you should ever have to suck up to anyone is if you don't know how to take advantage of fear. Make companies hire you and keep you because they're scared of what will happen if they don't. Take a spouse and make them fear what will happen if they try to run away. Appearances are for people too weak to grab success by the throat and squeeze the life out of it.

>you can buy used apple ones for like $300
Cheapest I saw here are like 350-400 bucks for the 2014 version and most would require a storage/ram upgrade. Plus older CPU would kill any hopes for sidecar. 2018 ones with 128gb are almost 600 bucks on ebay ... which is fucking crazy given the difference to M1 one but here we are.

In contrast modern Nuc would be like 350-400 with 1-2TB storage. Just not sure if i3 would do if i5 is 50 bucks more. Yet at the same time, it's just a fun side thing, so it's hard to decide.

The charger is standard shit for almost a decade now.

>> No.80095867

Appearance is nice if you are the one who did it. Most of the times CLI apps are more productive then the GUI ones. Also, every normie says either than they are not tracked because nobody cares about them or you care about privacy only if you have something to hide.

headphone jack was removed because they finally realised the shitty DAC driving it wasn't worth the space it took up anymore, espcially now that there are proper DAC's available for portable devices.
its pretty much forcing consumers to use better hardware, because the plebeians wouldn't otherwise realise portable audio is just as shitty as it was a decade ago

Hello fellow chad

>> No.80098118

why would anyone willingly listen to the radio? unless you are listening to radio 3, it is a generally awful experience
just take the music you like and download it to whatever device you please
and even if you still do, you're much better off using a portable radio or a cheap transceiver like a baefeng anyway. especially if you are in a remote area.
phone DAC's are bad, but phone radio receivers using a hair thin wire as an antenna are even more so
