Apple fanboys admit all the Apple products they hate

Apple News Today

Apple fans have a reputation for being — how can we put this kindly? — very, very loyal.

The phrase "Apple sheep" gets thrown around all the time by hardcore Android fans. Even Merriam-Webster got in on the action earlier this year when it used Apple fans as an example to illustrate the definition of the word "sheeple."

Some fanboys are likely too far gone to question anything Apple does, but much of Apple's fan base isn't blindly loyal to anything and everything. In fact, hundreds of Apple's most devoted fans recently responded to a massive thread asking them to voice their most "unpopular" Apple opinions. The result was essentially a massive collection of everything Apple fanboys hate about various Apple products, software, and services.

Porsche Design’s Book One is the industrial convertible laptop that needs fixing

 Porsche Design’s Book One laptop is a prime example of when aesthetics completely take over — when other parts of the device suffer and you lose focus on how well it actually works. The form factor set by Microsoft’s Surface Book is probably one of the best approaches to a convertible laptop. Why? Simplicity: the screen detaches from the body to become a tablet, then can… Read More

Drone pilots, here’s how to get your refund from the FAA

FAA drone registration: how to get a refund

The Federal Aviation Administration has suffered a rather embarrassing U-turn of late, but it's good news for recreational drone pilots. In December 2015, the FAA forced recreational drone pilots to pay the high, high price of $5 to register all recreational drones.

But that didn't sit will with some model aircraft enthusiasts, one of whom brought a case to court, claiming that the FAA had overstepped its bounds.
