They don't owe you a damned thing! You chose not to buy A Mac and go down the Hackintosh route!No-one held a gun to your head. Own you your choices.

Who cares what Apple's about to announce? It owes us a macOS x86 virtual appliance for non-Mac computers
Re: Cognitive Dissonance
>> "You caught a bad case of confirmation bias. Review other articles."
Yes and no. It's hard to argue the merits of this article. Sharwood's polemic is so beyond inept, it's laughable. There is 'biting the hand that feeds IT' and there is this article. Sharwood is tying himself in knots to make Apple look unreasonable. I gave up taking seriously anything this site had to say many moons ago. This though, this article is utter shite, and I'd wager goes against the views of the majority of the readership (not the good ol'fashioned Apple hating, the erosion of privacy).
Re: @x 7 "iPhone 6$hit"
ORLY? so this wasn't you?
Re: @Handy Plough: * improved LTE speeds*
Experience with a Blackberry? None recently. I've owned several pre iPhone and the nicest thing I can say about them is they were bland then; best of a bad bunch. Glad to be rid of them if I'm honest. Had a
laugh look at the Passport. didn't fit my needs. No, the iPhone does what I need. Hey if Blackberry works for you, then that's just dandy. Just don't fucking tell me what phone I should use based on your prejudices you jumped up little...
Of course YMMV, but then I'm not going around calling people names for using a different product. My slight was at the sudden volume of pro-Blackberry post on an Apple thread. It was a dig/troll. That you clearly took it personally tells us much.
I never said it wasn't legal. That's your own moral compass clamouring for justification. Here's the thing; if it's morally wrong, as were constantly told, that Google and Apple 'avoid' paying corporate taxes, why is it OK when a consultant does the same. I'd guess it would be distasteful to you if it were a 'celebrity' or a banker or a lawyer were to do similar too. You lot are the biggest bunch of hypocrites out there. Which is considerably more distasteful that tax avoidance.
Re: RIP Windows XP
XP left mainstream support 6 years ago, and Microsoft washed their hands of it completely last year. Apple have a notoriously harsh approach to legacy systems support - and even they only just stopped supporting it. What part of you thinks that, reasonably, Apple or indeed Microsoft, should support your cheapness/laziness further. FFS man upgrade your OS! I bet you're still connected to the internet with that thing. The mind boggles.
Re: Useful things for a wristjob.
1. The Apple watch has this facility
2. Can't see the real utility myself and the digital crown works very well. The screen being obsured isn't much of an issue in daily use.
3. See http://furbo.org/2015/07/14/a-watch-water-and-workouts/. Basically, it's waterproof.
4. A self-charging mechanism would be advantageous. That said, I get about 2 days charge wich ain't too bad for a first gen product.
"And, let's be honest, Apple know exactly who you are as they have your Apple ID on the same device. Just because they've not shown it linked in, doesn't mean they couldn't, can't, don't, haven't or won't. If you are authenticating the software on the device and the device is linked into an Apple ID account or course they know who you are. Whether they join the dots or not greatly depends on local legislation, not technical capability."
Prove it. With actual tangible evidence. If you can't shhhhhhh. You're talking shit.
Re: The sad bit is
"the core idea of a taxi license is setting up some much needed frequent checking on drivers..."
That'd be fine if that is what actually happened. Parisian taxis are a ripoff and might as we'll be unregulated. They are run by a cartel that, using unions, strong arms government.
Re: Why put DOS on a mac?
At no point did I say that otherwise, I refuted your implied assertion that Macs aren't useful in the realm of 3D and preempted the inevitable CAD remarks. Now to take you to task on your (pointless) Wikilists;
Of the 37 listed programs, 12 aren't available for Mac. Of those 12, only 3 are are "big hitters", 3dsmax, SolidWorks, Solid Edge. I've deliberately left SoftImage off that list as it has been discontinued. Yes 3dsmax is popular. Your medal is in the post. You know what else is popular? Cinema 4D. As to what is better? Neither. It the person operating them dummy.
CAD has been traditionally weak on the platform, no arguments there; however, it has useful CAD software available. You "features" bollocks is irrelevant vis à vis AutoCAD as most people use it like Etch-A-Sketch, and in all honesty MacDraft and Vectorworks are better option on the platform. PLM is poorly supported, but trust me, Siemans PLM is more than capable.
I deal with Autodesk on a daily basis, and let me tell you, they are the worst. They make the likes of Oracle and Adobe look saintly. Their software is buggy as shit and their support is next to useless. Pointless in fact. So it doesn't really further your argument that Wintel is better than Mac because Autodesk CAD and 3D.
BTW, vizualisation is a niche of a niche. Son, I was CAD monkeying before you were born.
Re: Why put DOS on a mac?
It's only 3dsmax that doesn't run on a Mac, everything else; Maya, Modo, Cinema 4D, LightWave, Houdini, Mudbox (stop sniggering!) all have Mac versions. All are equally as capable; some more so.
You'll be telling us about CAD next. (AutoCAD, VectorWorks, MacDraft, ArchiCAD, Rhino, Cobalt, Siemens NX [as used buy Apple] all run on OS X)
