macOS is becoming legacy software
Quote:
Everything that Apple did, and didn’t do, with its Mac lineup this year tells me the company would rather be selling more iPads and iPhones. The departures from the 2016 MacBook Pro — MagSafe charger, USB and memory card slots, and a keyboard with more than 0.55mm of travel — are all things the iPad lacks. The improvements to the same machine — thinner, lighter, all-metal chassis, a display with wider color gamut, and a sliver of a touchscreen called the Touch Bar — are all things the iPad has. If it’s not perfectly obvious, Apple’s efforts with its new Macs are to wean its old users off their desktop and laptop habits and familiarize them with the new world of touchscreen PCs. What that means for macOS is that it’s fast turning into legacy software: an afterthought on its way to becoming abandonware.

Regardless of what Apple's stock value is they've become a monopoly and this move away from Mac's OS could hurt the brand pushing customers towards Google and Microsoft.

Meh.
Whining because they haven't come up with even more things for Windows to copy.

I still laugh at people who want to poke at their laptop screen with their fingers.

They're basically writing off their Mac line which is sad because they're work horses.

How has Windows copied Apple? Those laptop-tablet touch screens don't like them.

So the thing to do is when your victim walks away from their computer you open this page on a Windows machine and then hit shift-F11 to make the page go full screen.

The real joy is when the victim hits Enter and gets the BSOD... :lol:

Half the call outs I get these days are people who can't even tell they're looking at a web page.
"The computer SAYS" I have 9,567 infections, sirens going off, screen flashing, call this number now or die...
