Stalk The Comic:

December 29, 2017 - News Post

Sigh... I truly don't want to bash on Apple all the time. But they just won't stop being horrible. I've tried to cram as many items into one comic as I can. Let's hope this covers all the latest Apple scandals for the next month or two.

I don’t begrudge a company for making money. If they make great products, kudos to them for being popular. The problem I have with Apple is just how many shady, sleazy, creepy things they do along the way.

Apple often makes great products, but there are ways to make products that don’t take advantage of consumers, developers, factory workers, courts, and tax loopholes. Is it more expensive? Slightly. Yet I feel that it’s well within reason for the world’s largest tech company to achieve.

In case you're thinking I made today's comic up. Here are my sources:
