imagine some fifteen million merits style future: the ipad
cube rooms are run by apple. the apple ecosystem is a
squeaky-clean arcology. outside, however... everything else.
like in demolition man, we have the ultra-anal squaky clean
people vs. the hairy sewer people that fart and eat
ratburger. why does it always seem to come down to this --
like one and zero? apple and android. is it humanity's fate
to separate like oil and water? one zone of squeaky-clean
fascism, and another zone of hairy anarchy.... or, well it'd
be more like an apple egg yolk of fascism surrounded by an
android egg white of anarchy... point is, fuck apple

What dariusgriffin said, also I think a bigger division is
between closed systems for consumption-only - phones,
tablets - and open systems - desktops and laptops (even
Raspberry Pi) that can install anything and are far more
modifiable.

Apple's decision to go with ARM processors on Macs is a bad
sign that they're going even more walled-garden. Of course
their dream is to make the Mac app store the sole source of
software on the Mac and get their 30% cut of everything.

One good effect Apple has had, with their intense focus on
ergonomics is that it's shamed Microsoft so badly that
Windows is usable now. I've been using Windows 10 lately,
and it's... good?! It feels like using a Mac.

I'll probably get a business line Dell for my next laptop.
It's too bad because things were getting really good on Mac,
IL even finally ported FL Studio and it works great. But the
hardware tax is too ridiculously high now and I don't like
how the walls are closing in.

instead of having to scavenger hunt around multiple legacy

Apple's decision to go with ARM processors on Macs is a
bad sign that they're going even more walled-garden. Of
course their dream is to make the Mac app store the sole
source of software on the Mac and get their 30% cut of
everything.


the first impetus was this thread the fiasco with the "hey!"
email service. hey! is classic startup bullshit trash, but
this is irrelevant to the meat of the matter: apple approved
their app; it started to pick up steam. then apple turned
around and said: you can't push updates, bugfixes until you
give us 30% of your yearly subscription fee -- after it'd
been around for a while, and the metrics proved there was
money to be had. this sort of crap is, frankly, extortion.
apple does invest a lot of effort into curating the app
store, but not 30% worth. i'd be hard-pressed to argue for
even 10.

second, the switch to arm: on the one hand, i get it. x86 is
legacy bloat. ARM has better performance, power usage, heat
profile. apple is great at chip design. on the other hand,
this will directly fuck a lot of people over, and, totally,
it feeds directly into their walled-garden ambitions. people
who just bought a new mac and spent $$ on Cinema4D and Vue
and etc. are likely to shit bricks, because all of their
different, incredibly expensive bits of software will become
haphazard upgrade lurch where one package runs on mac ARM
and another hasn't made the leap yet and they can either
upgrade to ARM mac and have half their software run like
shit or stick with their old one and have the other half not
run at all. anyone who likes games on a mac is fucked; games
are very x86 focused and the level of optimization does not
lend itself to easy porting. heck, same for all the 3D
software... and, yes, boot camp, kiss that goodbye

and of course, as mentioned, they will use it to banhammer
anyone not paying them 30%. microsoft must be dfgjkdfg,
because they tried this with WinRT and it flopped. but hey
spreadsheets will have better battery life at least

the third impetus was a running puzzle, about how humanity
tends to separate into two pools: squeaky-clean fascism and
hairy anarchy. i think it's just one of those personality
sliders -- some people feel safer, calmer in the "everything
i own is made by apple" bubble

meanwhile, all these fucking video services censoring stuff,
messing with classics. HBO Max editing out all the guns from
looney tunes. Disney+ was just in the news for censoring
some other crap i'd probably not even watch... but, fuck

without the legally-advised conscience of companies with
ten-figure market caps. it feels like the fuckers are trying
to rebuild cable tv, slowly, so no one notices. boiling a

One good effect Apple has had, with their intense focus
on ergonomics is that it's shamed Microsoft so badly that
Windows is usable now. I've been using Windows 10 lately,
and it's... good?! It feels like using a Mac.


windows has come a long way, to be sure -- performance,
reliability... yes, even looks. but the same crap, the same
attitude remains. windows will forcibly install updates and
then not let you reboot the computer without applying them,
and this is so it can say WELCOME TO THE NEW MICROSOFT EDGE
and add icons all the fuck over, pin to the taskbar, the
desktop, fire up edge and start harassing you to try it.
sometimes, the updates break thousands of computers. your
other options are to shut updates off entirely, or merely
"delay" them for two weeks, or some shit. it used to be
there was a "notify me when updates are ready to install"
option, but, no, without this i could skip their fucking
edge update bullshit, and we can't have that. at least apple
doesn't do this shit

even behind the scenes, apple has begun throwing its weight
around in the most obnoxious ways. like: if you have an app
on the apple store, and you want to have a "sign in with
google" button, you have to include "sign in with
apple." your other options are to not have any 3rd-party
sign-ins, or not be in the app store. this came up during
some product metrics meeting, and i was confused. i was not
the only one; the guy giving the presentation had to stop
and explain it: yes, we have to include the apple shit, or
not have any of this at all. or not be on the app store, an
option no one even bothered to bring up

there is more. getting rather fed up with the 800lb gorilla
bullshit

windows sucks, but at least the architecture underneath, PC,
is open. that's why WinRT faceplanted; it's the one real
strength of the platform that apple will never have

YES. I've been saying this since I got my first computer, a
hand me down DOS piece of shit that I managed to get onto
the internet with a dialup modem ISA card and Telix. "This
is too good to be true, and the bastards will be trying to
take it away from us," I felt from the beginning.

I was reading some posts from Urs Heckmann, the guy behind
U-he synth plugins, really the best software company I've
ever dealt with in terms of product quality, updates and
open communication with the customers. Anyhow he said that
his entire code base is abstracted enough that porting it to
ARM will not be the end of the world. I find that surprising
because I thought most audio stuff was very dependent on SSE
instructions. So it might go OK for some developers.

But yeah it's the overall high handed attitude and squeezing
both customers and devs that bothers me about Apple.

Thanks for reminding me about the Windows update policy.
I've been playing around with my wife's work Win 10 laptop
that has automatic updates shut off so I haven't had to deal
with it. I just noticed that it was a lot less painful to
use Windows than I'd remembered.

Everyone big in tech wants to hoover up money in the most
freedom-destroying ways possible. I'd go back to Linux but
I'm just too dependent on proprietary Mac and Win only apps.

So it might go OK for some developers.

"OK" is still far from "seamless." yes, perhaps product XYZ
is "not the end of the world" to port, but now, suddenly,
you have two products where you had one, and your customer
base is cleaved down the middle with both sides crabby over
this bullshit already (circa: 2022). you have to have two
separate build processes, two sets of tests, bugs occur in
one but not both or bugs are specific to platform
differences, have we trained call center support to prepare
for ARM vs. x86 calls?

so, effectively, it's nothing but pure hassle for
developers. they will see no gains out of the transition.
and please pay 30% for the privilege

no more like "Everyone big in tech wants to hoover up money
in the most freedom-destroying ways possible" -- it's
just that freedom-destruction is a great way to hoover up
money.

proprietary Mac and Win only apps.


i made the leap in 2014. like windows, linux has come a long
way. your network card has a driver, no bullshit. there's a
proper library of games available, thanks to valve/steam....
but, yeah. for work, they gave me a windows laptop. i asked
if i could install linux. after some mumbling noises, the
eventual answer that came back was: "yes, sure, but support
will not even give you the time of day, you're fucking on
your own" and given the level of crap the VPN software
requires, well, i just left windows on there. otherwise, i'd
not have much of an opinion about it these days at all. i
managed to avoid it almost entirely from 2014-18

ES. I've been saying this since I got my first computer,

google "eternal september". that's more how i feel -- the
internet was immediately great for me, and i was early on
the boat, when it was still just a small collection of
nerds. i feel like it's gradually been invaded by fucking
idiots and corporate bullshit, and fuck you fuckers for
fucking up the internet

maybe it's more a mix. with tiktok app crap whatever, no one
uses IRC anymore except the real heads. feels a bit more
like it used to. as long as the basic infrastructure remains
uncompromised, there will always be tubes too obscure for
the dolts to find

I sympathize with Chomsky's frustration but Zizek deserves

sharp, insightful pieces of writing from him, like his intro
to Ben Burgis's book about Jordan Peterson, Myth and Mayhem.

imo apple are free to usr their own processors. Who's to say
they have to keep paying intel for something they can do
themselves. The more players there are in the space the
better for everyone. And by the looks of it, they are trying
to make that transition easier for everyone.

I'm not their fanboy though. There's a lot of bullshit
coming from that company, don't get me wrong. For me the two
best looking laptops (I heart laptops) to come out the past
while is the google pixel book go (which is very similar to
my old 2010 compaq laptop - best ever) and the new msi ps 63
modern or now just modern 15 or whatever.

i remember being ten and wanting a laptop so badly. looking
through catalogs and seeing $3k, even $5k -- in the mid
90s's. it was to the extent that my dad actually did me a
favor, once, and told work "oh i need a laptop for work
during the family vacation in vermont" but, pretty much, i
was the only one to use it. it was an NEC versa

i've had a number of crappy ancient laptops from dumpster
diving for lulz -- a 286 laptop the size of a small
briefcase with a monochrome amber screen. it was utterly
useless but beautiful. an original mac portable i
accidentally exploded after setting a step-down transformer
wrong (because i didn't have a power brick for it). spent
ages with a really shitty 386 laptop, trying to get linux to
boot off a parallel zip drive, totally defeating the point
of a laptop -- it never worked anyways

my first laptop that was actually somewhat current, also,
thanks dad. at work, one of the dolts in sales closed the
lid of a sony vaio when a pen was on the keyboard,
destroying the right half of the screen. but, despite that,
it was quite usable. i remember sitting on the couch in the
den, ethernet cable connected to a dongle to a PCMCIA card,
on IRC, thinking, "YEAH THIS IS OWSUM." this was
approximately 2000

by 2002 or so, my work running banner FTP sites was paying
off to the extent that i got to buy my first new laptop, a
dell inspiron 8000. it was never the greatest laptop

2009 or so, i bought a thinkpad T500. still have it; it's my
mp3 player for the living room. it's seen lots of use. i
remember being on mushrooms and looking at it fondly and
thinking how much we've been together and giving it a hug
and telling it i love it

then after that, laptops started to come in waves. the
"craptop" which i got for free somewhere, with an SSD and
linux it was actually a great second machine for watching
movies and stuff from 2011-14 or so. an old thinkpad T42 a
high school friend sent me because he didn't want it

actually, fuck, thinking about it, there is a bit of
coleridge in this thred. the initial post, i had smoked some
weed. then read an article about apple switching to ARM...
and my brain is then compiling a whole bunch of disparate
threds, i should write this up and --

shit, i lost it. fuck. what was it again?

the trick, in these situations, is the sort of chaos-theory
aspect to thot. with the same starting conditions, or close
as you can, you will think the same thots as you did before.
so, you think: what's the last part i do remember?
but it was a very large structure of thought, and i couldn't
quite dredge it up from the ending fragments i still had.
so, i thot: i guess i have to think it all over again, and i
did.

i didn't just stream it out, though. there was a lot of
revision involved. i haven't read throeau or emerson in many
years, but i recall from high school that one of them would
compulsively edit their work, and the other would just blast
it out and click post. i liked the one that edited much
more; probably was thoreau. myself, i do both. i blast out
lots of stupid crap, but, when i'm serious, i do a lot of
sculpting and editing before posting. this post is somewhere
in between

the seed of the thot was contemplating apple switching to
arm. more walled garden, more fiefdom, more high-pressured
tactics. with the juggernaut iFing has become, i'm suddenly
having a vision of phone ecosystems expanded to running all
of humanity. apple is a giant white egg inside of a vast and
tangled forest. then i recall something jnasato posted,
about demolition man and the two tribes and is this where it
all ends for us? then i realize, there's more of this all
around: some people open mail in their backyard to be safe;
others deny 'rona exists.

anyways, i started writing it up as i thot it (again), but
it was too dfghjjkdfg, had to re-order, came up with the
fifteen million merits analogy to save me a paragraph etc

and also remember thinking: there were some people on here
that fucking hated black mirror, will this analogy put them
off? will others have not seen it and not get it, thus
puncturing my bouncy castle? in the end, i could not think
of anything else that was anywhere near as efficient so i
bit my lip and went with it

for anyone who's apt to get lost in thot, and have some of
their best ideas after a good stretch of it, the experience
of being tapped on the shoulder, snapping out of it, and
losing the whole thing -- it becomes maddeningly familiar. i
already knew it when i read kubla khan and found out about
the story, and it still haunts me. i want to reach back
through time and strangle whoever interrupted ol' sammy. you
fucking dick

as i got older, my level of passion w/rt the matter led to a
breakthrough, which effectively boils down to, "what were
you thinking before you thot it?"

one thot leads to the next. so if i can get back the thot
that launched the train of thot i've lost, i can run the
train again, and get it back. with practice, you get much
better at it, and start to have a more deliberate attitude
towards reconstructing thots.

hope this helps anyone daft as i. thank you for tolerating
weasels

no worries, I enjoyed reading it

I didn't include the laptops my dad had over the years.
First laptop he ever brought home was a monochrome 386 - I
remember being impressed by the speech on the three stooges
game for dos (using the pc speaker)

He also later had some Sony Vaios, which were all the rage
and super cool. He would have an extra, which I would use
when visiting my parents in the UK (b4 the divorce when they
still lived there).

That OG HP with all the slots papa gave me, but everything
from then I bought. Perhaps that's why I love the compaq so
much, it's the first computer I bought with my own money.
Also that keyboard, fucking lush. And the minimal design.
Still looks good to this day. Has Ubuntu on it now.
