that is my point, I'm not asking a trillion dollar company to change their ways, that's just a fool's errand but rather its customers to finally say foff. Companies only learn when they see a loss in revenue.Everything you say makes sense, and I’m a huge Rossman fan (more so of his NYT bike videos), BUT none of this will change the mindset of a trillion dollar company. Even if a 1000 people decide to stop buying MacBooks, it’s not going to a make a dent to the bottom line. This is pure capitalism, and Apple will squeeze every penny as long as the masses agree.
That's what I dont get, is owning a mac/IPhone really worth the bullshit that comes with it? And apple has already added caveats with third party USB-C cables and will probably do the same with sideloading too.And let’s be honest, 99% of those buying a Mac don’t care about what Rossman has to say.
Unless EU comes to rescue - like it’s doing for
iPhone for USB C and side loading - there is no other option if you want a Mac.
This is my point, why are you excusing something like this and say "hurr durr hur, shit happens lets YOLO". This is just snorting copium.I think you are missing the point.
No one is saying that SSDs should come soldered on the board.
In an ideal world, all the parts would have been modular on laptop- at least to the extent they are on a desktop.
But they aren’t. Parts fail and devices sometimes become unusable before the end of their lifecycle.
Phones fail prematurely , so do TVs or anything else for that matter. It’s a calculated risk we all take when we buy anything.
Talking about subpar QC, search Mac flexgate which was there for years and Apple couldn't be arsed to fix that despite multiple complaints because well **** you.The SSD is only one amongst several parts that can and eventually will result in failure.
In my (anecodotal) experience, the probability of such failure has been lower for Apple devices largely across the board .. Many people even here will still have decade + old ipads and ipods that still work.
I have also had several devices that have failed prematurely (both apple and other brands) because of random different components . And when it happens, we park it and move on. If it happens enough times with a particular make, we subjectively assess it as a pattern and start avoiding it going forward (e.g. I (subjectively) believe that Mi devices tend to have subpar QC)
Absolutely agreed, but when it was something as basic as a soldered ssd or a company skimping out on memory? Yea **** that shit,
Yep, keep blowing off a guy who has always fought for consumer rights without any counter arguments for his points while saying hurr durr hurr, he's pandering to his crowd.PS: As for Louis Rossman, I will just leave you with this screenshot .
YT pundits know their audience and LR knows his target crowd
P.S. are you really saying you are gonna keep using your mac with an external device if your inbuilt ssd fails? if so then kudos to you my guy.
