Neither "puerile" nor "hatred" are terms I associate with Remind or its author.

I've been using Apple products for more than 20 years. Ironically, Apple appears to be implementing the very kind of thing it claimed to overthrow with its 1984 advertisement:


This behaviour isn't new, it's just becoming more overt and more pernicious.

I think it's morally reprehensible to reward such behaviour; i.e., use Apple products if you will, but don't give Apple any money. The same advice generally applies to any corporation/church/government/organisation/person which operates primarily for monetary gain.
