I think Apple learned a hard lesson with their high prices, but I have to laugh how they are blaming their slump on repairs instead.

The rich support their own, they live in their own world not caring about the 99%, because more and more of the money is going to the 1% of people.

I honestly think Apple is out of touch. It must be because Apple it's self and it's employees. I am sure that Apple pays their employees top dollar, and they are all from California where the pay is high and everyone has big homes/Teslas etc. So I wonder if it's a lifestyle thing where they think someone would drop this type of money on a stand or monitor. I mean If I was getting paid tons then sure why not, it would balance out. I think they are out of touch. Your last expensive iPhone should had touch you something about consumers not wanting to pay that much.

Apparently Apple doesn't like the video of people booing the Apple stand, so now they are trying to get it removed off YouTube and other video channels.

I was going to write yesterday, I love the memes on this, I saw the mug one. How long until 3rd party companies start making their own versions for sane prices? I wonder how Apple can justify the high price, almost like it was some joke. What happened to the days when you would get quality stuff complete with extra things just in case for a reasonable price. We are in such a product consumption society with all these wasteful things. I guess it's always been the case, even in ancient times where the rich would have certain things just for display or show of nobility.

So... new iPhone 11 was announced, or should I saw new camera was announced. Not really all that great unless your wanting a better camera.

I no longer have my iMac. A coworker is to poor and doesn't have a computer, and with everyone staying home his daughter needed one to log into the school system. So since the iMac has everything built in I gave it to him.

Apple announces their new phone. Glad they learned that no one wants to spend a lot.
... more so that there is a budget market? It's not like they've been struggling to sell phones.

Well I think with their last phone introduction there were no cheaper options. The price just kept climbing. Some people don't need all the bells and whistles. Some want to get into the Apple phone world without the high price tag. I think they over produced the last phones and they didn't sell as well as they pleased. People finally drew the line in the sand with the price tag.

I have been stealing my wife's airpods quite a bit lately to do yard work with. Apple made them quite nice.
