Okay, its taken me a couple months to really grapple with the dumbest fucking decision I’ve ever heard of. Let’s COURAGEOUSLY remove the headphone jack…
…First of all, let’s bring Tim Cook out on the battle field and see if “remove headphone jack” level courage is enough to keep from shitting his pants…probably not…sub-rant over.
So they removed this “ancient” connection port that can occasionally drop signal in favor of Bluetooth which regularly drops signal and usually doesn’t even carry the same quality of signal when it IS connected. So Bluetooth can just go fuck itself intermittently in the corner. Let’s talk Lightning adapters. My phone will now have a pencil dick hanging out of its ass forever. Do I want that? Does anyone want that? Is REMOVING a currently capability of the phone something that anyone was asking for. No. Just more battery life.
Let me explain why this screws me so hard. I drive an old car with no bluetooth. In fact, I play my music and podcasts via a tape deck (yeah a fucking tape deck, like my boombox from ’92) on my 60 minute two-way commute. When I finally do get to work, my office is a converted weapons maintenance shop and so it has shitty signal indoors. This means that my battery is drained by the end of the day. While at work I like to listen to music. My network doesn’t allow Bluetooth or USB connections (except keyboard and mouse) so I must use the headphone jack. So on my way home I must, wait for it, listen to music while charging my iDevice. So now that means that I will have to buy that piece of shit extra adapter that can do both; aka pencil dick with elephantiasis (look it up) now permanently hanging out of my phone’s ass.
Oh and for the record, this ancient audio tech is exactly the same tech as 1/4″ and that is an industry standard and will be for at least another generation of audio technicians because there is a worldwide economy built around it.
On the bright side, the phone is now water resistant…just like the Galaxy 7 and its still present headphone jack.
Courageous…that’s just funny. This isn’t courage, this is crazy. Steve Jobs would have fired his ass for this pansy shit.
Why can’t we import voice memo from an iphone to a computer with itunes. I do a lot of field recordings and it’s a pain in the ass to transfer all my fucking voice memo over a wifi connection in separated EMAILS !!! can you fucking imagine if you have like 50 voice memo to transfer, thats just fucking crazy to manage if the only option apple gives you is to send it to yourself by email … fuck that, they’re dumb, just dont make a fucking voice memo app if you make is so difficult to archive your shit afterward
please reformat in your own words !
PS: thanks for your blog, it helps me evacuate all my frustrations against apple in a funny way and with compassion
I have an old fucking iMac 2007. I can’t update to the fucking new OS anymore, nor do I want to. I am stuck with that fucking Mountain Lion violence. (I know I have fucking Snow Leopard somewhere) Problem is, my fucking web browsers are no longer supported and it’s starting to cause fucking grief for me. Any fucking outs available? The machine still runs fucking great. fucking thanks
I updated to OS Sierra and somehow made a wrong turn, or was never given the choice and had to eat a FUCKING HUGE iCLOUD DICK.
I figured I would update my system but did not realize the fucking system would secretly upload all my bullshit to iCloud. I have a ton of video files I need to work with and external storage devices so I can keep things all neat and tidy.
I also ate icloud dick as I could not update my mac unless I paid them. Sounds like one of those virus hatchet jobs.
Fuck you Apple. Get your fucking cock out of my shit.
Why the fucking fuck does Photos open when you put a memory card in your mac???? What fucking professional photographer would ever use photos?? Yeah, I know you can tell photos not to open when that card is inserted, but that only works until you FORMAT THE CARD… Which is EVERY TIME YOU IMPORT, if you’re smart!!!!! Simply deleting the photos will eventually end in a corrupt card. STOP BEING A DUMB FUCK, APPLE. Give me a reason to love you again.
Apple calls their new piece of absolute shit music app user friendly when really they designed in a way that they thought I was handicapped and couldn’t use the older music app(which was as about as perfect as the app could’ve been). I am one update away from quitting apple for good and if the newer ipods ever have the headphone jack removed I will quit.
I have a shitty fucking apple piece of shit iPhone. My apps are constantly fucking up, I have two at the moment that I can’t delete or re install, have re booted the phone multiple times, signed in and out of iTunes. Tried customer service live chat that they claim takes TWO MINUTES, was fucking waiting for 10 at least before I got out of it. FUCK YOU apple you don’t help shit your products are fucking rubbish and the day someone else brings out something better than android everyone’s gonna leave your stupid ass. FUCK APPLE.
I am old time apple product user, but i DO NOT LIKE forced updates..for example i had itunes 11.4 on mawericks.. everyday i have to respond to itunes upgrade negatively, as i do not like itunes 12.. i do not like the icons and navigation in total, in whole itunes is more bigger app then 11 version.. I had to use pacific to get itunes 11 back but not succesfully, so i did all my account delete, everything erase.. nearly 420gb total active music in my itunes previos 11 version been erased as 12itunes can not be reverted back…ONCE I REFUSED TO UPDATE SO LET IT BE NOT UPDATED….BUT FUCKING DESIGNERS OF APPLE WITH THAT MEGA SHIT ITUNES 12 UPDATED WHILE PC WAS IN IDDLE.. dem them. NEVER GO TO EL CAPITAL, USE OLD MAC OS AND BE HAPPY. INDEED I SAY..THIS EL CAPITAN JUST EL PEDAL…and all apps likely are silentry to be prepared for free upgrade to el capitan or whatsoever..
OMG just got the amswer to my message on the support board of shitty asshole fucking apple. THEN I SAW YOUR FUCKING AMAZING SITE and had too much to laugh CAUSE I LOOOVE YOU!!!!
Cause I always select my favorite photos directly on the iphone. BUT when you sync your photos, there are NOOO fucking favorite photos which you selected on the iphone appearing in photos on mac!!!!!
Guess what IT ONLY WORKS by using iCloud of fucking APPLE shitload eaters!!!
So they FORCE all people to use there shitlicking iCloud spying system to MAKE WORK THE MOST NORMAL SHIT OH SHITLICKING SHITHEADS!!!! THAT IS JUST MOST NORMAL SENSE MAKING SHIT THAT IT GETS SYNC ALSO TO YOUR IMAC BUT NOOOO
APPLE PEOPLE = NOOOO BRAIN only SHIT in their headdsss and eating shit allday to shit and then EAT THEIR SHIT AGAINNNN
GOD FUCKING DAMN IT!
