Re: Wonder what Louis Rossmann thinks about Apple's dick move
Imagine the uproar if a major car manufacturer mandated that your shiny new car can only be serviced and maintained by their own dealers and exclusively using their own original parts otherwise it will not work at all. And by that I mean not just major parts like the clutch, the alternator or something similar, but everything else such as brakes, suspension, spark plugs, tyres, drive belts, wiper blades, light bulbs, even the floor mats and the badge on the front. Every. Single. Thing.
Normal (sane) people would refuse to even consider buying from them.
But if it's a very, very shiny laptop or phone, they'll fall over themselves to get one as soon at it comes on the market.
Apple truly is an idiot tax.
