i'm considering getting rid of anything I have that's apple before the "big change" happens

I'M SURE MOST CONSUMERS won't notice "the switch" but my conscience can't tolerate this level of "being a traitor" to the next generation of Americans.

Apple has posted a kind of "HATE INTEL AMERICA MANIFESTO" / love ARM / Taiwan manifesto on their main website - which is extremely unusual for Apple* who is usually distant from any speech (ie, to appeal to all customers).


Apple's HQ is in Cupertino California and i'm unsure of the company hasn't been looted by BLM "per say". There's a certainty the company has moles, but are the moles now in charge? I think they are. If Apple's HQ was looted by BLM do you think CNN would report on it? I don't think so.

(up to now Apple adapted to using 3 CPU and "anything opengl or sony_powervr_phone_pad" for GPU, (a debacle for porters, many changes to main libs pushed hard no explanation), whatever is marketable at the time and even the cpu was not a barrier - as phone pad and mac and pro all were different yet were "connected" under their platform. the new plan is all ARM all devices, all outsourced)

Apple's (georgia was it?) facility is likely a "planned failure" IMHO (they know most home customers aren't looking for large powerful PC costing $5k - $20k, they are assemling PC only from what i know (ie, not making any of the chips), (for one thing, Dell already is entrenched doing that, also an outsourcer), some are but it's a small market). this facility to me is suspicious and may close "un-expectedly". (you know, low sales of $20k computers? well, every company to date usually does have low sales of $20k computers and if IBM is the exception - well i don't know)

Apple, before Tim Cook, had been, with Sun Microsystems, the only consumer grade computer in the 1990's made in the USA (1980's-2000's). (ibm ... too long a history ... skip)

Tim Cook has turned Apple into "just another fabless california tech company" who is anti-consumer (user development/progress destroyed, users who use older models - forbidden)

THIS IS SAD, apple had been a company of pride in parts and software and jobs. apple had used USA cpu, disks SCSCI (quality disks), memory. today - all imported all 2nd tier copycat technology (ide, asian memory, etc) and even 3rd tier (gpl'ed)

the company is not what it was. it's becoming just a usa looking brand name on a chinese product. a "nike swoosh"

silk screen on a chip means (usually a USA company) puts some ink on top of a chinese chip to make (customers competitors) believe they are not fabless

from another FFU article about modems ... there's a firm question

qualcomm broadcomm both are california SOC that moved to china, Intel Texas is a SOC made in usa still

it's a question (in my mind) if these SOC used in cell phones support cell phone calls or that is a separte "secret" chip. (ie, some broadcom chips have only cput+multimedia+usb but NOT modem, there are so many models it's hard to track down though)

AT ANY RATE - IT'S A HUGE QUESTION why UNIX has been in the "radio networking" business since before wifi was born, but today you can only get on a full network (ie, make telephone calls) IF IT IS A SMALL DEVICE MADE IN CHINA

(usb with sim can do it but it's not built-in to any usa made laptop - and recent Win10 releases, noting Win10 has a chinese headquarter - recently "wiped out USB cell compatibility", making add-on cell support for laptops on win10 a nightmare. THIS AT THE SAME TIME PADS ARE RELEASE, MADE IN CHINA, HAVING CELL BUILT-IN)

(the wicked thing is linux could, but it is "banned by telephone companies" so do not bother trying, anyway there are some missing handshakes protos needed and the sim you need was, you can say, strategically omitted)

"Huawei launches updated HarmonyOS to challenge US"

http://en.people.cn/n3/2020/0911/c90000-9759212.html

(it is a google android patentless free system huawei has copylefted from android and "now is the chief of releases" of. it contains hardware blobs instead of drivers that would expose any chinese secrets as multimedia and cell support)

Amidst this, the Beijing government has an ambition it calls “Made in China 2025.” Effectively, it wants to end its reliance on imported high-tech products, such as semiconductors and airplanes, replacing them with their own homegrown alternatives. The motivation from this stems from economic and political security, as well as national prestige.

china has hacked linux OSes and kernel drivers since the earliet OS bases releases

the news that "china has used google's OS in huawei phones" is ... questionable. google has made android to run on chinese phones and works with china ... so saying huawei is "borrowing code from google" is ... NOT completely the truth of things. it is not nearly the truth of things.
