the core argument is over what counts as "the market"

epic's argument is that the market is iOS, where apple holds a monopoly and the court should break it up

apple's argument is that the market is video games, where apple is a minor player at best and the court doesn't need to do anything because customers can play fortnite on lots of other consoles and PCs

so how much are the interests of customers hurt by being unable to play fortnite on ios specifically without apple's permission?

part of appleís argument is also that the consoles work under similar terms, you need to use their payment system and they get a 30% cut, so why does epic have an issue with that on ios but not on the switch? no doubt microsoft, sony, and nintendo are watching this thing closely as well since it could affect their platforms as well

I don't think it's the whole thing but for sure some parts of itunes are built into finder, since it's what you now use instead of itunes for restoring and syncing ipods

I really hope Apple does make MacBooks in different colors. I want a purple Air or Pro to match my phone

I'd be amazed if they weren't going to do that for next year's macbooks so they match the new imac, can't imagine whoever wanted coloured imacs not also pushing for coloured macbooks to complete the nostalgia hit for people who had ibooks back in the day

airpods receive data over bluetooth, which doesn't have the bandwidth to support lossless. not even compressed lossless codecs like ALAC iirc

it's a bit muddy looking it up, but i think at most the bluetooth 5.0 standard would support the cd quality at maximum, and even that would be a stretch

basically it's a bit clickbaity to be reporting this as something inherent to airpods, when it's the same for all bluetooth headphones

is the current trend with all android cameras just slapping some brand only known to camera nerds on the lens and hoping all the reviewers piss themselves over this great camera maker legitimising their camera phones with a lens they probably only spent 5 minutes looking at?

thats basically the take i'm refuting, safari used to be a pile of poo poo and is now so much better than the competition that there just isnt a reason to use ff or opera other than being a dork

the main reason i can think of is if you absolutely need the pile of bookmarks you've accumulated over the years to be on your mac as well

I wonder how annoying it is for google to have to deal with so many real, actual users on a platform like YouTube. they canít quietly just stop supporting it or kill it off. must be torture to not be able to completely gut/redesign it or make other competing platforms on a regular basis like most of their other products

you should look at more youtubers twitters, because youtube constantly redesigns backend and algorithm poo poo in ways that gently caress over smaller channels, then the really big channels all tweet that they had it explained to them personally and the minnows need to stop whining or read their email with zero self awareness that they might get treated differently

ebay sellers are super wise to it as well, I've seen people in ipod discords buy nanos that looked fine in the listing and then had the spot when they got it, though the ipod still works fine despite the spot just would you put a battery that you know is swelling in your pocket

basically the nano sucks rear end and you can't even put a crazy amount of storage in them
