... iPhone ...
Apple definitely makes great hardware, but I find iOS atrocious. It'll never be a viable option as a smartphone for me.

Google kills Google Inbox
I'm pretty upset about this. I've used Inbox since it started the public beta, and have always liked it much better. Gmail does not have feature parity with Inbox - the email bundles are invaluable, and I use the notification feature fairly frequently.

They should instead kill the current Gmail, and just re-brand Inbox as the new Gmail.

Is 9 to the tech industry like 13 is to architects or something?
Or like 3 to Valve.

I don't get this shit... where is the iPhone 9? Are they skipping no. 9 in favor of X? WTF!?!
Just like Windows 9... Conspiracy theory mode ON.

Well, there was a good reason with Windows because the leading 9 would have made some (mostly older) software believe it was being installed on a Windows 9x OS. The valid reason was version checking.

AFAIK, the number 4 is the unlucky number in "tech" or at least in China where most tech is coming from. They try to avoid "4" like the plague since it is written similar to "death" in their sign language but "9" should be fine.

So... I DEMAND an iPhone 9. Not that I'd buy one... my ancient iPhone 4 still works like a charm but how the fuck am I s'posed to trust Apple if they can't even count right and just skip a number for shits and giggles?

There was never an iPhone 2, either. iPhone, iPhone 3G, iPhone 4. You can argue the 3G was the second, the 3GS the third, and the 4 the 4th, but that convention never stuck around, with the S never being an incremental number.

Have I mentioned recently how glad I am that I have never purchased an Apple product?  
Truth is brutal. Prepare for pain.

3. New Gmail Design and removal of Inbox Sep 12, 2018, 21:15 eRe4s3r
 
Fucking sucks, there is just no sugar coating this, everything looks the same, readability is much worse, "mark as read" dosen't adhere to the fucking labels (instead it marks ALL as read all) etc.

And on my tablet they removed the weather/time/gmail/calendar combo app combo so that I now need 3 fucking widgets instead of 1. SO YEAHAAAAW.. google messing with GUI starts to become a bit of a nightmare.

Apple is definitely pushing the envelope when it comes to charging premium from the customers.
