Apple has never invented anything.
Sure they perfected several technologies, but such is progress.
Their technology has features that were seen on technology from years ago, but thanks to the logo, at a much more premium price.

Sticker thread - I quite enjoyed the last one.

Where can you get muh stickers?
It's not a troll. I genuinely purchased them. Pic related.
I'd use that as a sticker.
Why is it that other companies try and try... but when Apple shows their product, everyone is eternally BTFO?
What is their secret? They steal all the spotlight and are way ahead of the rest... how can other companies compete with that?
Just look at that design, I mean. Wow.
I'm not shilling or baiting...
Apple does it again, is all I can say.
Other companies don't try, that's the problem. They pick some "revolutionary" flavor of the week gimmick, shove it into their device while autistic nerds like >>62393555 who buy on price tag alone screech about how they were the first to do it, and then they forget about it along with everyone else.
Two years later, shittle will take the same gimmick and polish the fuck out of it, integrate it into their system, release it to a ton of fanfare, and leverage their brand image to make people want it.
This thread is about the appreciation of horology, as well as the micro-engineering and materials engineering that are required to make a fine watch, clock, or other timepiece.

Who is the target audience?
what do you do on your phone that requires so much power?
Can someone tell me and explain ?
What were they thinking? This is not like Apple. Now every app developer will have to adapt their UI to this monstrosity.

What the fuck were they thinking?
>try to boot 3 Linux USB livedvds that use SystemD
>can't reach any runlevel, systemd can't get whatever .dat file it's looking for
>try Gentoo livecd
why don't more people support OpenRC again?
I ran into an issue where systemd started waiting for five minutes if I boot my computer and it isn't attached to the network. If I plug in an ethernet cable, it pings Google and then continues booting immediately, however if I don't it waits 5 FUCKING MINUTES.
Lennart is training us to have our computers connected to the network. Thing is, this happens whether you use DHCP or a static IP.
Systemd will kill Linux. It's already too big for any embedded application.
Linux was targeted for subversion in the 1990s by Microsoft and presumably their deep state investors, in the famous Halloween Memo. It took a long time and billions of dollars of investment from several fronts, especially Red Hat, to make this happen.
Free software is still great, but obviously projects need to be aware that if they show technical merit, there will be jealous CIA niggers sent to subvert them. OpenBSD already experienced this and it led to a year-long review of the whole codebase and a host of fixes.
It also reveals their methods - if you make software that's enormous, this just provides a large number of attack vectors which will be difficult to discover. Take the RNG flaw that remained in Linux for over a decade.
Many eyes isn't enough, you need strict governance free of (((industry))) influences, and the smallest code base possible while remaining transparent to anybody who wishes to audit it.
Systemd's code is under constant heavy revision, any review of that system is fairly pointless because by the time you've looked through practically a half million lines of code it will all have changed.
It feels like there's a sticker on the top of the screen that I constantly peel off.
>mom ask help on phone to make online purchase
>is ranting about how she followed all the steps to the letter
>frustrated she asks me to show her how to do it
>do the exact same process she did
>shes in pissed at the fact that she did it like me but it didn't work
lmao women should be banned from operating tech
>Mom tears apart the living room to access plug to reset router
>Show her how to do it on the computer in 2 seconds with 1 click
>I DON'T HAVE ALL DAY TO SIT AROUND ON THE COMPUTER TRYING TO FIX THINGS!!!!!
>Yeah, that's why I tried to show you the easy way of doing it
My mom used to program a dang PDP-10 with paper punchcards back in college, now she needs my help rediscovering her email password or "undeleting" things she accidentally put in the recycle bin every couple weeks. I don't get it, modern tech is baby shit compared to some of the stuff she used to know how to do.
Do /g/ays get paid for shilling linux around here?
just started new course in school and my class is literally filled with /r9k/ and /b/ browsers what do?
If requesting purchasing advice, please provide your country and what carrier you will be using it with, along with wanted features, budget and size.
