Apple, Android, my parents’ old Nokia 3210, I don’t care anymore
The tech industry is something I used to write about, specifically Apple, but man I really don’t give a shit anymore. There’s no other way to put it. Why can’t people just buy a phone and shut up? Why do they have to create some shitty comparison chart that points out that one phone is better than the other, which will then get edited and redistributed by another fanboy saying the opposite?
Where has this need come from to slag off any product one doesn’t own? Imagine if this applied to all your grocery shopping? I’ve bought apples, because all pears suck. They’re the wrong shape, the wrong colour, and they can’t make juice, a feature which the apple has had since day one. What idiot would drink normal milk when there’s chocolate milk? It’s got so many more features.
Seriously? Is this what the tech industry, journalists and people in general have come down to? There will always be a new phone that’s “better” than the old one, somebody is always going to do something “first”. It gets boring and repetitive after a while. Just enjoy your damn tech. If you don’t like your phone, change it. If you like it, keep it. Whatever.
If people put as much effort into making their own tech better/writing on more interesting topics as they did slagging off all other brands except their own, I might still be interested in the tech industry.
