What would it take for you to leave Apple?

Apple products and services are top notch, so I don’t like the idea of going back to android. However, Apple removing Twitter from App Store would probably push me to Samsung.

I just want an excuse to go back to my Nokia. I can play Snake if I get bored.

Not trying to be snarky at all.

But I think Apple can afford to lose you and some of us on here as customers.

All this to say that they will continue to dominate the markets for their products. Just being real bro.

I don't really care what kind of phone I use, so it wouldn't take much at all.

For a laptop it would take something comparable, and I just don't see those options right now. And the money would just go to Gates instead of Cook.

I switched to android for 3 years and it was unbearable not having iMessage and everyone else I communicate having it. If android or someone else ever makes a communication app like iMessage I would switch back.

's Twitter from app store warrants Congressional response

One of the most INFURIATING things about the current moment is the utter and complete silence and weakness of roughly 100% of DC establishment Republicans. Every single elected GOP person with a brain and/or spine or even a freaking PULSE should be saying at least this much.

Replying to @FLVoiceNews and @elonmusk
Apple has no problem bowing down to the CCP, and having their products made by virtual slaves, but clutch their pearls over Twitter allowing more speech?
It's utter hypocrisy.

Sounds like my wife. I don't understand it either.

I guess my regular texting app does me just as good.

Not disagreeing with you, but the litmus test isn't being able to "afford" the loss, it's the shareholders' willingness (or lack thereof) to accept big losses to advance Leftist agendas, especially knowing that the same Left they're coddling will tax their corporation and tax them again on their ROI as shareholders.

Someone making a phone that is as good as the iPhone and/or a laptop as good as the macbook. If Musk wants to make a tPhone and it's as good as or better than the iPhone than I will switch at my next upgrade.

I’ll be honest I don’t need more than Half the stuff or more on these phones it’s kind of silly. If I need to do that much work I’m on a Laptop or Desktop I surely not doing it on a tiny arse phone.

Saying that give me my Bubble app and Camera for my Dick pics and I’m golden.

Comparable in what way? This is sarcasm?

This could be a moot point because if AAPL fails, then everything else in the stock market basically fails. I am pretty confident in blanketly stating that Apple Corporation stands as the long pole in the tent of the S&P as the archetype of a "quality" blue chip stock with good fundamentals and runway for the foreseeable future in terms of growth to boot - not to mention the psychological clout it has in terms of influencing the needle of the indices from a macroscopic perspective depending on the direction it moves.

Durability and ease of use.

I still use Windows for everything work related and I have a pretty good frame of reference to compare them.
