Businesses with consumers at odds with their core business practices

You know like how Apple attracts a very artistic and liberal despite having the most monoploly driven, restictive and anti consumer business modela of the major players in phone and computer and software production and how Brewdog are punk brewers despite being a hugely corporate business with very antiquated practices and values

I think it’s more that huge amounts of people own apple stuff except for the sort of people who make a point to not own their stuff (not saying there isn’t a good reason for this stance).

Really don’t wanna turn this into an apple love thread because I think they suck, but I used windows/android for a few years a while ago and it was a tonne of faff and the products broke or malfunctioned far more than the apple stuff I’ve owned before or since. Think I’ve saved money and hassle using apple products tbh.

Obviously their newer stuff is absolute pants and I’ll be moving back to windows and android if they don’t reverse stuff like not being able to upgrade ram etc

is this true? Seems surprising to me.

Dunno how they expect me to be creative if they take my headphone jack away
