Re: Apple: Letís discuss...
I believe that apple's technology is very good. I mostly prefer it, just because it makes my tasks easier. Their consumer products work as expected without major issues. I am not the average consumer because of my technical background but, I find the their software is well designed and better than the competition. Their laptop hardware design is extremely better than anything else out there. Microsoft have been trying to compete with their Surface lineup but still they are not quite there yet. For iPhone and Ipad, the major competitor Samsung is close, sometimes better, but they keep fighting each couple of months for that first place, however Samsung's Android will never make me happy. I can't stand redundancy for the sake of selling you a Samsung ecosystem.
I am not convinced on the comments about apple just letting me use their hardware or the computer as they see fit, specially on a Mac. Mac Os is a certified Unix system you can install mostly any *nix tool out there. For consumer applications like Spotify you can use them and not Apple Music on both your iphone and mac. You want to replace Mac OS for Linux go ahead you can do it too.
I don't think that their innovation its on creating new revolutionary stuff, I think what really makes them special is that they take the revolutionary stuff that others implemented poorly and make it just work for the average consumer without major problems. They did that with the finger scanner, hiDPI displays, and now it seems they are on track to do the same with face recognition.
