Lol at Tele for failing to answer, but liking your post
Dude, I had just narrowly escaped becoming homeless (by around £14 to be exact), and was then put in a position where it looked like it might happen again. Being the profound hater I am of modern head-in-phone, social-media-poisoned, weed-puffing society, I figured that if I were to survive, I needed to avoid living on the streets among them at all costs, and camp out in the wild. This meant I needed a waterproof, reliable piece of hardware for a phone, and something bigger to act as a computer.
I had the choice of submitting my privacy to Apple or Google. They are equally abusive, but I went with Apple simply because providing I kept it mint, it would have a reasonable resale value when I come to ditch it.
Luckily, I won that battle and now have a very nice flat to live in, so I've been saving to buy a proper computer again, something with Linux on it that I actually have control over. Until that happens, I'm stuck with Apple's prison, so do forgive me for thinking it appropriate that I should be able to do the sort of stuff I pointed out.
I think my expectations are perfectly valid, and I know for a fact that sandboxing being an option from day one, means that Apple should be hit with an epic lawsuit, and so should the American government. The job of a government is to protect it's people, and that includes protecting them from Orwellian monopolies.
I don't even have furniture in this flat. I have water and electricity, sure, but I sit and sleep on the floor, and have been doing for over a year now. I have the cash now, and I'm currently debating with myself on whether I should buy the powerful Linux-compatible laptop I've researched, or furniture, or even a synth, because frankly, I'm finding it difficult to justify another computing device when I already have one, but don't have a synth (and I really miss having a physical synth to mess around with).
And before you say it, yes, I'm the sort of guy who would buy a synth even though almost everyone else would chose furniture as a priority. I need something to keep me sane, and as good as the music apps are for the iPad, I'm afraid touch-screen interaction is not something I'm a fan of, it has to be the worst form of interaction ever devised.
Either way, whatever I do regards this thing, or rather, whenever I do it, I already pointed out to you that I will be getting rid of it, so your post does not make sense, it merely avoids answering what I put to Tele!
Brilliant, and you want more good news on the Apple front? I can no longer play YouTube videos full-screen since the iPad update. Bloody fantastic that is! It's exactly what you need when you fancy watching a film and you naturally assume you could at the very least do something you could do before the "irreversible without a computer" update screwed it up.
No music, and no films without distraction now, bloody hell, what next? I'd better buy a synth before I go stark raving mad, either that, or get back to the luxury of a computer I have control over ASAP!
