theyre getting ready to do some stupid poo poo in 12-24 months like make your macbook a touchscreen with no trackpad and just make it run ios, that's what.

every ui change theyve made on desktop is expressly intended to facilitate touch. the 'stretched out menus', the giant titlebars. the Photos clip where they zoom way in and way out on a library, a motion obviously intended to be controlled by a pinch zoom. strap in and get ready cause it's comin'

the iPad is the best computer Apple makes so good

I have trouble even considering what the benefits of Mac on Arm could be because I do not trust even a little bit that the current incarnation of Apple will deliver it with the necessary quality.

Or maybe they’ve secretly been stashing all of their good engineers on this and the recent stuff they’ve been making GBS threads out has been interns and “rock stars” with 6 months of experience.

hi have you heard of the i phone?

they inflated the cost of the iPad Pro to be "laptop replacement" territory so had to introduce a middle tier to fill that gap

it’s not the most popular platform for them, in fact it’s the least popular one they don’t control

they could’ve pulled this stunt on PlayStation or Xbox but instead only did it on mobile. I wonder why :thunk:

I suspect mobile is much more profitable than console however

didnt spotify go “hey its cool if you wanna just subscribe through here, but if you use the website to subscribe we’d appreciate it”

its the easiest workaround

Apple forbids even mentioning being able to make a purchase outside of the App Store. no links, not even verbiage saying to “check out the website”.

you can see this with apps like Netflix that have no way to subscribe to the service in the app and don’t even tell you how to do it. there’s just a login box and you gotta figure the rest out yourself.

Shifty Pony posted:

a much more reasonable argument imo is that while Apple is entitled to charge money for their services, the amount they are charging for IAPs is wildly disproportionate to the services they are providing even allowing for their need to make a profit and is only as high as it is because they use their market position to force terms which hobble or block competition. if they had to compete with other payment processors the fee for IAPs would be much, much lower.

but apple isn't charging a higher rate because of their market dominance, it's always been the same 30% from when they held no market share.

why was 30% fine a decade ago but suddenly now it's not?

someone needs to tell apple that there will never be another 'pinch-to-zoom wow moment' for users ever again. maybe then they'll stop the gesture roulette game

i think the core problem is the way apple handles notifications and encourages others developers to handle notifications is completely loving stupid. In ios every notification stays with you forever until you manually remove it from your notification list. their idiotic design philosophy is that nothing should ever be missed even if the notification was only relevant for 15 seconds 2 weeks ago.

winphone/live tiles were/are the opposite. Only the most recent data is relevant. The user will get too many notifications to the point that they'll never get to all of them so lets just display whats relevant right at this moment. they can always go into the app to see historical data if they want.

microsoft, of course, was correct and apple, as always, was dead wrong. I think the best example of this is my work email on ios shows like 385 unread messages and my work email on win10 mail shows 1. This is because win10 mail only shows me new messages since the last time i looked because who the gently caress cares about emails from a week or even a day ago? Only the hugest "INBOX ZEDRO!!!!" dorks and they're the absolute last people to design anything for. they can go use one of the lovely apps that caters to their brain disease.

sounds like win10 mail is busted if it’s not showing you the correct number of unread emails, hth

seriously, children, learn to use mail rules. make mailboxes for things, then have your awesomely powerful computer apply blindingly simple rules to move things into those mailboxes automatically. it is shocking how much better your life will be. people will sign you up for terrible mailing lists full of things you don’t give a poo poo about, and you will unsheathe your katana and spend a minute adding a new rule and then completely forget about it forever. every time you find yourself getting annoyed by email, it’s because you haven’t added new mail rules recently
