This. Is. Awesome.
It just feels so much like a B movie comedy script full of bumbling idiotic bafoons

To simply walk away from it, shut it down, salt the earth, and move on to doing something entirely new would be an impossibly difficult decision for almost anyone. Nobody walks away from the kind of wealth and power that Facebook has let Zuckerberg accumulate. But he’s spoken frequently about his desire to wield that wealth and power for good.

I used to put up with the arrogance of the company and actually find it a bit charming as long as their shit worked way better than anything else. It’s just not true anymore and the arrogance seems more and more user hostile.

Either Apple is arrogant enough to believe they’re still the best or they’re simply unable to build the best shit these days. Either way, it’s not 1999 anymore. We have other options.
