I have a love-hate relationship with Apple. They've done some pretty innovative stuff…in the past. Apple hasn't done anything particularly groundbreaking since the iPhone. They've made thinner and thinner ultrabooks, but that doesn't mean much by way of technological advancement.

My newest Mac is from 2015, and I don't run any version of MacOS beyond MacOS 10.14 (Mojave)plugin-autotooltip__default plugin-autotooltip_bigMacOS 10.14 (Mojave)

This is the last version of MacOS I use on compatible Macs.

I worked at an Apple store as a consumer support technician (aka “genius”) in 2010. I was around for the iPhone 4 launch, including the "you're holding it wrong" debacle1) and the "we want our techs to replace the standard Phillips-head screws in early-release iPhones with these pentalobe screws so customers can't open their phones" fiasco2).

I haven't really been interested in Apple's modern products for awhile. I never could use the OS as my daily driver, so it's always just been a hobby for me.

    On January 31, 2012, in the middle of the day for many users, Apple silently and stealthily blocked the Java web plugin on all Mac computers running 10.7 or 10.8.

    This has not been getting that much news coverage, which is unfortunate given how serious this action actually is. And, of course, we all know that if Microsoft did something similar, it would be making national headlines on many news sites.
