Hear me out. There is strong hate and disgust against the likes of Elon Musk, DHH, Kagi and others… … now take that feeling. For those affected, really deeply take it in. Really make it boil inside. Feel sick. Picture them over and over.

This is how I feel about Apple, as a developer 🤮

@vincent for what it’s worth, I just want to convey the feeling that I think would be relevant here (on MB) 🙃

@vincent It is way to easy for me to forget just how cut-throat Steve Jobs was and how that still remains a major part of Apple's culture. They do a lot of truly amazing things but that ruthlessness has been there for decades and is currently on full display.

@vincent What’s been seen cannot be unseen, but I do feel and understand your sentiments here.

@camacho that is very true. I do miss Steve. I miss him because he occasionally called out that they were wrong. And made it right. .me kerfuffle and what not. This is deeply missing these days. I guess also, it’s their “secrecy” thing that’s stopping a lot of insider info on what is actually happening.

@ddanielson they still make the best hardware in the biz. There’s no denying it. Hardware wise they rock (mostly, but better than everyone else).

@vincent hahah! I support Apple for most of what they are doing, but they are not perfect - I think they are maximizing what they have left before regulations come down on them in a few weeks.

The thing is, they're a US company and the lack of regulation in the US allows them to be like this.

As for Musk, DHH, Kagi, Zuckerberg, and Sweeney and then throw in Brave, Spotify -- well, they are still worse! :)

@vincent I don't want to take this off-topic, but what about Kagi?

@eay no idea. Seen it randomly somewhere. Apparently because they’re using Brave 🤷‍♂️

@vincent Ah, ok, thanks. I've been using Kagi since November and am also quite impressed. However, I feel that the results have deteriorated somewhat in the last four weeks.

But well, I thought they had done something wrong.

@eay well, actually in this case, on the Fediverse, I think people are having problems with who’s behind Brave. Which is fine, people get upset about different things all the time.

Kagi has been great for me so far. I actually like paying for search - feel a little less “dirty”.

@vincent Yeah, that’s true about Jobs admitting when they were wrong. I like how Tim fights for some cultural things I’m aligned with but that’s not the same thing. And at the end of the day they are a, what is it, three trillion dollars corporation? They don’t have our best interests in mind.
