digital and carts are different.
When you're describing vendor lock-in, I fail to see how the comparison is not relevant.
Does google make me use google play to load an MP3? no but apple makes you use iTunes
They do? Are you high? I just took one of the tracks from that U2 album Apple pushed. Track 6, Volcano. I took that track, an m4a, copied over to a Windows box, and played it in VLC. VLC runs on OS X along with a host of other MP3/media players. So, wtf were you saying??
can i use chrome in IOS??? No!... (not really anyway)
So no...fine, user lock in without Chrome. Give me a break.
can I keep ticking off things I can do in other OS's that I cant do in osX or iOS?? yes
You better keep trying, because your first two sucked ass.
, it seems they have decided that user lockin is more important than anything else
This is getting tiring, and along with "walled garden", it is really stale and worn out as an argument. What company (that turns a profit) isn't interested in customer retention? What other products and services are portable in the manner you imply compared to Apple? Jesus, this has been going on for ages with tech. Did your Atari 2600 carts work in that fucking ColecoVision your weirdo friend had? No... they didn't. And that same song continues today.
It's simple. As long as a significant portion of Apple's revenue comes from having a closed, "walled-garden" ecosystem, Apple will be disinclined to participate anything that might result in the demise of that ecosystem. After all, it's hard to be in the same boat as everyone else supporting WebAssembly etc., when that same technology will ultimately result in the death of on-platform app stores.
Are we really ready to celebrate concepts like WebAssembly? I may be old (get off my lawn) but, to me, binaries injected into the browser from all corners of the internet does not a utopia make.
sBesides, California burns so much because it doesn't burn enough: Forest fires are part of the ecosystem. If it doesn't burn now, it'll burn more and hotter later. No amount of fire retardant is going to stop that, short of paving the entire thing and putting up a giant parking lot.
We're working on it...
SourceForge, the code repository site owned by Slashdot Media, has apparently seized control of the account hosting GIMP for Windows on the service, according to e-mails and discussions amongst members of the GIMP community—locking out GIMP's lead Windows developer. And now anyone downloading the Windows version of the open source image editing tool from SourceForge gets the software wrapped in an installer replete with advertisements.

No, but a statement to investigators that he drove the vehicle while his license was revoked establishes probable cause for arrest and/or citation. Which is what TFA says. The police arrested him. Whether or not such a statement can or will be used in court is a separate issue. PC for arrest is established.
Well, sure. If he told the investigators that he drove it there... which is not entirely out of the realm of possibility. But that doesn't fit it with the "every cop is an incompetent boob running around crushing the liberties of the citizenry" theory, does it?
Thousands of people parading through an ICU is a problem. That should be obvious. One cannot have every swinging dick running through an ICU -- unless you want those patients to contract infections and die.
Take the health concerns away... I agree.
That related question that the editors added to the OP's question is going to screw the thread up.
They are hardly related -- and were obviously written by separate individuals.
