Another Reason to Hate Apple…

The reasons to dislike Apple keep piling up...and I must vent them out again!

Reason #1 - Everything is Apple's way or no way!

Today I moved a few videos onto my iPhone. Which ones you ask? Well, I don't get a choice. It's all videos, or the latest 5 videos. What if I want my wedding from 6 years ago, and a video from last week? No can do. Can't you guys just put a darn check box on the videos page? Why does this have to be so hard?!

Need a backup battery for your MacBook or iPhone or iPod? Sorry...there no longer removable. You have to attach some bulky ugly accessory.

Reason #2 - Everything is expensive!

Today I tried to connect a video cable to my iPhone to play back video on the television...yes, the cable was made for the iPhone, but guess what, it didn't work. Turns out Apple's latest software update for the iPhone disables any cables not made/licensed by Apple. Can't buy a $3 cable off of ebay...gotta pay $50 for an official Apple accessory.

Hate hate hate hate hate.

Does anyone else feel the way I do?
