My question is: why? Apple sucks, don’t get me wrong but Elon musk is still killing Twitter even though it’s virtually dead now more and more.
hmm, 11 Dec 2022There are tons of people who spend thousands of euros on mobile games for in-game currency. An... moreMan games acts as a spending of free time where purchasing and buying some add ons can help advance faster.
Same goes for the live shows which are real and those people really can have their lives changed a lot.
Twitter when its get only as a paid just like HBO, Nextflix etc people will stop using it.
Imagine Facebook wont be free and whole planet will be charger for example 10 euros a month will you use facebook anymore???
I dont think so.
This going to be same.
Anonymous, 10 Dec 2022A pretty stupid comparison to make. Why is it that you compare iPhones to mid-range Androids w... moreMy old Huawei P40 pro had an IR blaster, microsd card slot too. Also had an under display fingerprint sensor, 3D IR ToF biometrics sensor that also calculated depth for the selfie aswell plus gestures like scrolling Web pages without touching the phone. Oh and an under screen speaker that was the clearest for phone calls I've heard other than my dad's old Huawei P30. Apple and samsung take away features then standardise others in a negative way while dramatically increasing prices. (removal of headphone jacks, removable batteries, SD card slot, charger in the box, slow charging standards, removal of secure face unlock for Samsung and the lightning port and the notch for iPhone to name a few) .
Samsung are the apple of android, they just have money and can do better deals with companies and shops and massively over advertise their products. I've been watching a bit of TV because of the world cup, every advert for a shop that sells tech have only advertised Samsung products with Z flip 4/fold 4/s22 and the watch 5 being only phone/wearable tech I've seen advertised, it's why they do well because they monopolise the industry.
Most people actually base purchasing choice off advertisements/popularity/mainstream media/celebrities not actual self research/the right specification for themselves including my partner, she only goes iPhone without even thinking a second about it when it takes me a minimum of 1 month to come close to a decision for a phone from daily research because I want a near perfect device for the right price. Nothing special about her iPhone 13 either, it gets pretty easily beaten in a lot of useable ways vs my Oppo Find x5. (used/2nd hand you're looking at £500-600 for the iPhone 13 with half the base storage vs x5, 60hz screen, worse battery, worse charging, slower real world performance and no telephoto vs around £350-£400 for mine now, barely get an S21 exynos variant for that price.)

rRadD, 10 Dec 2022You call someone a fool who can afford? What a world we have. Well you cant really say that buying apple products is a smart business decision. Especially cause you can afford it.
It's basically not a place where you should set your money if your smart and want to build so as communication device for that purpose iphone is too expensive and dont make sense.
It's basically personal prestige luxury accessory so the world see your successful.
Smart people probably dont have time to sit nose in the screen and charge the phone 2 times a day cause they got work to do so for that your just wasting your resource cause there are more important things on where money needs to go

In Europe, iPhones (before 14, they raised prices by 200-300 euro in Europe because of "inflation") did cost around the same as Samsungs or Huaweis and such. Those manufacturers on their flagship series, like Apple, don't give you a headphone jack, a microSD slot, an IR blaster and so on.
By saying that iPhones don't have such capabilities (listed above) and that's why they are crap is stupid. iPhones always were and are catered to richer customers. They aren't audiophiles, they just want something that works and is easy to use and is a symbol in culture, like AirPods, MagSafe and etc. And that's a valid point to make. I recently moved to iPhone from 8 years of Androiding and really iPhones just work. By comparison, today's Samsungs are overheating toys (they feel like one in hand), which have humongous batteries that don't hold a charge and expand physically beyond their design limits after a few years (mrwhosetheboss video).
Is this hate on iPhones based on people being angry about the "riches"? I don't understand.
rRadD, 10 Dec 2022You call someone a fool who can afford? What a world we have. he calls them a fool because they pay more for less. iphones use restrictive software, and don't have headphone jacks and microsd slots compared to midrange android smartphones. As for the status symbol thing: even people poorer than me use iphones in my area at least. Also what does having twitter blue do for a person anyway
rRadD, 10 Dec 2022You call someone a fool who can afford? What a world we have. By this logic, Elon is the biggest fool since he can afford probably anything that Money can buy...
You don't need Twitter,,, bye bye
YoloBS, 09 Dec 2022Is this discrimination against Apple users ?Remember green/blue bubble?
LoL really anyone willing to pay for a twitter which was until now free???
Elon Musk must been really poor.
