Internet's Triggered Over Apple's Commercial About Computers Going Extinct

The ad plays on the idea that kids will one day live in a world where the damn word, "computer" is foreign to them. A bit extreme, for sure. Queue the inevitable triggering, because it's 2018, and we all need something to get ourselves worked up over. 

People react on Twitter to Apple's, What's A Computer commercial with rage.

Internet's Furious After iPhone Conspiracy Ends Up Being True

If it seems like your iPhone's been slowing down over time that's cause it quite literally has, by design. Yes, in a statement released by Apple on Thursday, they confirmed that updates have been programmed to render iPhones slower than they once were. Let's just say the skeptics of the world were not stoked to have their suspicions confirmed, in regards to their iPhones being slowed down intentionally. Yet, Apple claims this is a strategically-motivated, preservation tactic to protect the internal components of your iPhone. 

People react on Twitter to the news that Apple's been intentionally slowing down iPhones with updates.

Always fascinating to discover new insights on what was going on in Jobs' head, while he busily, ingeniously, amassed an empire.

Remember last year, when the great cellphone war went up in smoke as Samsung phones started blowing up all the time. Well, now, I guess you're dumbass Android-using friend can be all shitty about their phone again because this iPhone blew up too.

Apparently, Brianna bought the phone, and while she suspected it didn't look right, she took it home anyway, assuming that because it wasn't a Samsung phone, there's no chance that it could blow up. However, she was wrong. Dead wrong. Her boyfriend caught the phone smoking and squealing the very next monring, so he dumped it in the bathroom, the only falme retartant room in the house, for safekeeping. Yup, looks like you're going to have another one of those conversations about which phone is better, and you won't be able to get out of it by saying iPhones don't blow up. Get ready to hear about how Galaxy phones are endlessly customizable. However, when you ask what is customizable about it, they tell you something that you would never want to do to your phone.

But we live in a post-iPhone blow up reality, where we have to put up with convsations like that, and there's very little we can do about it. Even the Genius bar can't save you because this phone blew up.

The iPhone’s multi-touch display is one of the phone’s greatest innovations. But wouldn’t you know it, Steve Jobs and the team almost went in a different, stupider direction.

The iPhone almost had a click wheel like the iPod. But it wasn't a physical click wheel, it was a digital one. The video above from Apple leaker Sonny Dickson shows the click wheel from “Acorn OS,” which Mashable describes as, “an iPod-based interface for the iPhone that Apple was working on before deciding to go with the now-ubiquitous icon-based interface.”

Apparently, Apple had two teams working on the iPhone’s operating system, one that was led by Tony Fadell, the “father of the iPod,” and other by Scott Forstall, who was the Vice President of iOS software before leaving because everyone hated Maps. Fadell was working on this click wheel version based on the success of the iPod.

Obviously, “turning it into to a rotary phones from the 60s,” as Fadell puts it, wasn’t the way to go.

Check out the video and imagine a reality where you absolutely hate your iPhone.
