Because apple products are a fashion statement. People buy them because their rich and dumb friends have them and they don't want to feel out of place. They don't care about things like terrible battery life or lack of features if it means they can feel normal around their friends.
Woman and fags are more prone to caving in from peer pressure and buying apple products. Men however usually grow a pair and stop worrying about fitting in and buy things that fit their needs.
>>52912062 >terrible battery life Apple products have the best battery life on the market, usually due to performance sacrifices, slow fans, etc. Their products have many failings but battery life isn't one of them. Smug anime face combined with ignorant drivel opinion = massive shitpost
>>52912124 >not wanting better impact resistance and more vibrant colors with the Ion X glass.
sapphire crystal doesn't make sense for a smart watch. It dulls out the colors, dims the max brightness, and is far too reflective for a display in outdoor use. Trust me, money wasn't the deciding factor in purchasing the sport rather than the stainless steel model.
>>52912197 outside of that how do you like it? Do you think it was worth the extra money over the sport model? I haven't experienced any scratches on either of the apple watches I have owned. Got the space grey one at launch and then go the gold sport when they came out with them late last year because it was fucking impossible to find any bands that would go well with the space grey one.
>>52912238 I love the look of the Steel w/ Milanese Band, so I guess from that perspective it was worth it. I have sustained some scratches on the steel below the display from accidentally hitting door frames (clumsy). I wouldn't recommend buying it at the advertised price unless you really enjoy the aesthetics of the more expensive ones. I was originally going to get the Steel Band Black, but it was $1600 in Australia, so fuck that. I bought it for developing Watch apps also, so that's how I justified the price, otherwise I would have just gone for the Sport and saved hundreds.
>>52912206 >You literally have to buy an iPhone 6s plus to get decent battery life. As an ex iphone 6 owner, I fully agree. My phone would start hitting 20% at the end of the day and I would have to stop using my phone completely hoping that the fucker wouldn't die on the way home to the charger.
Now I have a z3 compact and I only charge it after 2-3 days. It's fucking awesome.
It's just because design and appearances have become so important in people's lives in the last decade. People only buy lifestyle objects today, whether it's clothes, furniture, computers or kitchen appliances.
Design pops out better in the layman's eyes than technical specs. And literally everyone wants to appear as if they are living a dream life today. Yoi can't own ugly objects if you are living that perfect life, right?
>>52911489 battery life? All hear is complaints from apple users.
build quality? Muh usb ports
proprietary charging is fucking gayyy.
I bought this 23000mah solar power bank for 65$. It will charge/pwr my laptop for 6hours with normal use. Good luck trying to charge an apple with that. Wait for the isolarbank to come out, and have apple claim they invented it in 2018. Purchase price 399$. 10,000mah.
>>52911458 They are, the designed their latest models with the gpu's glued in, and the hot airflow passes over the glue, when maxing the computer out 200 degree air flows over that glue and causes the gpu to temperate from the mainboard causing the computer to fail, then the say your warranty is void because you ran it in a room higher then 70 Fahrenheit. Im not making any of this up.
>>52912551 >battery bank doesn't provide a connector for Apple products >must be Apple's fault! Meanwhile, they are the one pushing USB-C as the universal charging standard for laptops. You can charge the Macbook with literally any power bank with USB output.
Yes it is apples fault. They patent their charging circuits so you can only buy their chargers. And sew the fuck out of companies that make aftermarket ones. Also they change it every 2 years or so, so apple users can't share chargers.
Applefag1: hey bro, before i suck yo dick, my macbook charge is low, can i bowrrow yo charga?
Applefag2: sure bra, i'll jerk ya while you blowing me, here ya go
Applefag1: oh this one don't work, you got the new model?
Applefag2: aww naw dawg, i gotta get me a new macbook, my shit is like 18months old.
>>52912653 There are plenty of 3rd party chargers for Apple products. Magsafe 1 was introduced in 2006 and Magsafe 2 was introduced 6 years later. Lenovo and Dell change their plugs every 2 or 3 years.
Tech normies falsely believe every Apple product ever to be of the highest build quality and immune to viruses or crashing, and as such will pay 2-3 times what the device is actually worth from a utilitarian standpoint.
Automotive normies falsely believe every Toyota product ever to be of the highest build quality and immune to wear or mechanical failures, and as such will pay 2-3 times what the vehicle is actually worth from a utilitarian standpoint.
Both are mostly average and outrageously overpriced.
Jeep is like Alienware, except you can't actually purchase a good one stock.
The FRS/BRZ I can't even think of a comparison for. The image it creates is so far off from what it actually does I just don't believe there's anything that far off in the tech industry. It's got the image of the best handling affordable "sporty" car on the market when in reality the car known as the worst handling handles better. It's meant to look sporty but it's really just an econobox that sacrifices economy through drivetrain loss so it can be RWD.
>>52912895 >shills Alienware I'm far from a fan of Alienware and I'm not familiar with their current line up, but you can still buy something from them that has reasonably high end hardware, correct?
Jeeps carry the brand recognition of being extremely capable off road. The modern Wranglers are... decent stock, but complete and total trash, not any remote sort of competition compared to what a built truck or buggy can do. The other models are mostly crossovers, no better than other crossovers on the market.
-Windows (that a lot of their friends have on their $200 laptops. The laptops are slow as shit because of specs, but because they have no idea how hardware works, people assume that it's just how Windows laptops are supposed to be) -Linux (leet hacker shit that they wouldn't know how to use and aren't familiar with)
I think the choice is pretty simple for people who are not familiar with technology.
>>52911390 iTunes is the most counter-intuitive shit in the portable music industry. Just an unnecessary bloatware middleman for putting music on your iDevice. It's ridiculous that you should spend so much on an iPod or iPhone and not even be able to access all of the files and folders on your purchased product without jailbreaking it.
>>52913416 Those things are absurdly expensive and pointless for people who aren't stationed in the Middle East. You can't even buy them directly, and there's no set price for them. You have to call and get a quote.
There are people who have no idea why a suit and tie are better then old jeans and a t-shirt. They also don't know why they never get the cushy jobs. Apple users are wealthy. They didn't get that way by being dumb.
>>52911390 Apple products aren't terrible, they are okay. They are just priced as high-end no matter what they have inside. There are always better products but the price alone keeps normies thinking that Apple must be the best one ever. You would be surprised how little most people actually know about computers.
The real issue comes when people praise Apple, not when Apple creates products. The hype makes other manufacturers ditch what they have and copy Apple instead since consumers only want the ones that look exactly like Apple. Then Apple can set the pace and technological advancement slows close to zero.
Apple shouldn't disappear but it should be far from the most popular, just so it can't affect the market. Development should be a lot faster.
>>52913559 >technological advancement slows close to zero. >what are high DPI displays >what are capacitive touch screens >what are magnetic charging connectors >what are full size trackpads without space being wasted for shitty buttons when tap to click is much better
>>52913579 >high DPI Apple laptops lag behind in high DPI, there are others with 4K already. Of course when Apple finally brings it as well they will have invented it >capacitive touch screens They didn't invent it but they pushed it when other touchscreen phones and PDA's had been using resistive screens for several years. That can be still marked as something they actually did. >magnetic charging connectors Patented the shit out of them so no one could use those, that's the opposite of advancing the world's state of technology. >full size trackpads Apple has some good drivers for their trackpads inside their own OS so you might not get a brain tumor after five minutes. Try to use them in other laptops that come with Windows and you'll want to get rid of them. It's easier when the same vendor makes the hardware and software but at the same time that closes all the doors. Apple is doing their very best so that users would stay consumers and nothing else. No altering anything in hardware or software. You take it as is and you will pay for it, premium price.
>>52912551 By build quality I wasn't really talking about ports, because you'll always have one less than you need, but rather the construction of the chassis and the components within. I was a major Linux proponent for over a decade before I finally bought my Macbook after having two Dells and an Asus give me roughly two-three years each. The bezel on the Asus was literally peeling off. It was fucking glued on.
And I get 8 to 9 hours out of this 2011 model. About three times as much as any of my previous notebooks.
>>52913960 The updated model, the 221, ran off of a single power supply. Apple didn't advance that.
The DVI cable requirement was due to limitations in DVI with the resolution itself, it had nothing to do with the PPI. But Apple didn't invent dual link DVI or DisplayPort either, so it doesn't really matter.
>>52911390 Good hardware and software. Stable, usable and really easy, even a monkey can use it. The only problem is the price but people who buy it have money. If I would have all the money in the world, do you think I would expend my time choosing the pieces or making my pc? having memory, time and thread problems in windows? Wasting 3 hours to install correctely even the easiest drive on linux? And yes Im not retard and I know how to deal with problems on windows and linux but if I can have something easy I dont want the hard version.
>>52911390 Macs have gone to shit thanks to Yosemite and newer, battery life has decreased by 30% over Mavericks, heat has gone up and graphics stutters are everywhere.
iPads are still useless toys. The Pro is such a poor attempt at making it serious, nobody is going to make apps for it because nobody has one, and nobody will. They're glorified web browsing appliances.
iPhones are the only decent Apple products left and they're still doing whatever they can to ruin it, with iOS getting more artificially bloated to push older devices out of their support stream. 6 Plus lags like shit, 6S Plus isn't much different in terms of graphics stutters.
>>52916770 Back when steve jobs was alive, apple was not associated with homosexuality. Now that time "stroke my icock" cook is the CEO people immediately associate apple products with homosexuality. It's a fact of life now, if you own apple products, you love cock. Of course this also includes women, degenerate and normal ones alike.
>>52917260 >True but apple is more strongly associated with homos today more than ever Except that couldn't be further from the truth. Think back to the rainbow-colored Apple logo and the colorful computers. Now everything is sleek and professional-looking. Not to mention that like 99.9% of all females own an iPhone will Android is heavily male-dominated. If anything, non-Apple stuff is homo nowadays.
>>52917418 That didn't mean people immediately associated apple with degenerates back then. I used to have an iphone 3gs btw. I immediately beat it with a hammer when I found out Apple's CEO was a homo now.
>>52917585 Are you opposite me? My 5S erased all my data at some point, then a friend of mine dropped it and the assistance told me buying a new one would cost a little more than fixing mine. My 6S doesn't have that problem anymore.
>>52912877 Um I wouldn't say Toyota is the car version of Apple. They're not any more expensive they're normal city class cars, not luxury or anything. Also the reliability of cars like them and Honda is just present and can't be denied and they're not difficult or expensive to repair
>>52917948 Then the fault lies with the driver because for some reason in America people don't understand the left most lane is meant to be the quickest. But oh hell, you won't see me dragging you. I am always constantly going 10 over the speed limit.
Their hardware is shit and made of cheap materials. They give off a superiority vibe from their marketing. Which fools weak minded people into buying it. As they want something to make them feel superior to others, then they get pissed off if anyone questions it. Since its supposed to be superior they must assert its superiority.
Anyone who works in Tech and can justify an apple products. Literally knows they are lying to themselves and others. It should make them hate themselves, because they know it.
Apple makes good products that have a somewhat excessive premium.
Pretty much every modern, commercial OS is very stable and functional, so that's not much of a concern, unless you have some sort of strong preference for one or the other.
The only people that feel a need to hate on Apple products so strongly are teenagers that wanna "be cool" by hating something popular or get mad that they can't play the latest Call of Bullshit: Modern Whatever on a macbook.
The REAL problem with their products right now is that the components they're using are hardly any different from the ones stuffed into other computers; hence you're paying for the brand, build quality and OS (though you could always make a hackintosh if you wanted it so badly).
