My guess is that people who rant about the tech choices of others don't have many options on who they can fuck.

Does it bend?

Square Trade deployed its new “Bend-bot” machine to apply gradually increasing amounts of pressure to the surface of each wide-yet-wafer-thin handset. The Samsung Galaxy 6 survived 110 pounds of pressure before its plastic began to deform, as did the Galaxy 5

Apple has ripped off Samsung and blew it. New Apple Pencil proves it:

Steve Jobs said:
It's like we said on the iPad, if you see a stylus, they blew it. In multitasking, if you see a task manager... they blew it.
Samsung introduced the Note back in the Fall of 2011 - 4 years ago and included it with every phablet free. Apple finally caught on but it cost $99 extra. The Note 4 was the first with the ability to detect stylus tilt and with the 5 the sensitivity is even further improved on that.

Their larger tablet came to market almost two years ago: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Samsung_Galaxy_Note_Pro_12.2

An 18.4" model is in testing:

These huge tablets are a small niche market product.

cant we rename this thread to shit syadsti posts that no one gives a fuck about?
Oh so nobody here listens to music?

JBP posted the Apple Music article on facebook and splat was interested too.

Another super crappy piece of software like iTunes. They're also just ripping people off by trying to save on cloud storage - profit:

For those saying, "this isn't common", first that's utterly beside the point. Second, please note that Pinkstone's problems largely come from the fact that he's more of a connoisseur than most people. He has painstakingly located rare recordings that have variations from the most popular versions. Apple officiously went through and replaced his rare versions with the more popular version, essentially punishing him for having a sophisticated musical appreciation.

Apple: dumbing down the world, to make it "better".
...
"It's apparently even worse than this. Pinkstone also reports that his original compositions were in WAV format. The cloud substitutions for his original compositions are in compressed formats that have only 1/10th of the original data that Apple deleted. So some of his work is truly lost.
Over a half decade ago I uploaded my personal collection of 10.5K songs to Google play music. I never paid anything for that and they're all still there. Lots of obscure songs/remix compilations, no issues.
