TBH if you want people to upgrade maybe don’t make their phone run slower when it’s old bc they’ll be pissed when they find out
I don’t worry another tech company will beat Apple. I worry Apple chasing endless growth will implode the company’s ability to make sensible decisions.
You can’t grow endlessly, and Apple is already making more money than some countries!
If you double an object every year, you get bigger than the earth sooner than you’d think.
If you keep trying to “grow” your profits every year. Eventually your target is to have more money than exists on earth.
This must be the fourth time I have to emergency-delete my Tinder account because I accidentally super-liked someone it would be embarrassing for me to super-like 🙄

I think a huge takeaway from today’s Apple announcement (putting iTunes movies and TV on Samsung TVs) is that tvOS is now effectively dead. At least for non-video apps. They just cut their possible customer base for the Apple TV in half. #tvosdev
Kids were more likely to rack up huge bills on their parents credit cards if the game presented the most expensive items first. Not just because it’s in front of them, but also because the figures are so high that they don’t think they’re real money.

I’ve been screamed at, physically hit, and had my picture taken without permission for using my phone in public. [twitter.com]
