Lock the doors and call the non-denominational pastor because it’s time to intervene!
But thanks to the government you can no longer agree with anyone without being prosecuted for “assault”. No matter this is. Pfft. So stupid.
So who needs the intervention this time? Worth asking because of how the one with Darren went. Macalope gets it. We’re not locking ourselves into an Extended Stay America again with Darren. He does not have say the line but the line “I’m not locked here with you, you’re locked here with me” would have been 100% appropriate.
Luckily, this time it’s not Darren. Unfortunately, it’s Apple.
Now you’re probably thinking, “But Macalope, what could Apple do that warrants intervention?” Other than the System Setting app in Ventura. It’s only natural to experiment with Catalyst. The company certainly couldn’t experiment with anything dangerous. »
It’s amazing how often these assumptions made up by fictional readers are wrong. Will you ever achieve anything good, invented reader?
After years of telling us how much the company cares about our privacy and how it sells great user experiences, the dangerous thing Apple is experimenting with is…advertising.
Good, After The advertisement.
“If you see ads on your iPhone, you are not alone and others may be on the way”
“Apple has internally tested the injection of advertisements into the search results of the Maps application”
“Apple ad exec wants to more than double ad revenue with new ads on iOS”
“Hiring trends indicate that Apple plans to significantly expand its advertising business”
Apple made good hay (and Macalope knows good hay) by insisting that user experience and privacy are more important than selling ads. Critics — critics who mostly tend to be neck-deep in the advertising business, what Macalope imagines being neck-deep in a pool full of ticks — argue that after Apple destroyed the bread and butter of Google and Facebook, it will become the only place you can ever get targeted ads.
Of course, advertisers think that all everyone wants to do is sell ads too. Is this really what Apple wants to do with its life? Haha! Sure…. not?
Buuut, we should probably lock the company in a suite at a Hampton Inn outside of Newark for a week and make sure it’s not!
Apple, here’s the thing: Macalope took great personal joy in how you stuck it to Facebook because, well, it’s Facebook. He has also repeatedly argued that product reviews should include privacy as a factor when recommending smartphones. He also hints that there is something inherently fishy about the ads, the ad, Facebook executives, Facebook employees, and relatives of said employees, including several babies.
So if you’re just going to turn around and impose yourself as the biggest ad agency in the world after all of the above, it’s going to get super awkward and…
Well, let’s have words.
In or out of a mid-range business hotel chain.
