Apple Trashing Continues At @_connectedfm, @_upgradefm & @atpfm

I will be taking a long break from two of my favorite podcast Connected, Upgrade & ATP and in both cases is for the same reason.

They have become Apple bashing Apple winning podcast episode after episode. At this point, ATP should stand for Apple Trashing Podcast instead of Accidental Tech Podcast.

I am all in favor for criticizing Apple I have done it on multiple occasion especially when no Airport Extreme was released last fall.

But @marcoarment, @jsnell and @imyke had become to negative. They seem to want Apple to release what they want when they want it and if Apple takes longer to do it they will echo the mainstream “tech” media predicting gloom and doom for Apple and even calling for an executive to be fired.

For them, it seems every decision Apple makes and every product Apple releases is a bad move on Apple parts.

For example, on Connected’s last episode Myke was upset because Apple released a new low-end iPad but no new iPad Pro’s were announced. He was upset that the 12” iPad Pro is 18 months old and he likes to upgrade his iPad every year and he can’t so he gets upset.

So holding on to perfectly working hardware for a couple more months makes Myke upset instead of been grateful that the 18 months old iPad Pro he is so eager to replace is still a solid device after 18 months. Something that can’t be said for most Androids Tablets, Surfaces, and even Windows PC.

I for once prefer Apple take its time and only release a product when they are ready not when some vocal podcasters think is time, after all, they are following Apple from the OUTSIDE and have no clue what's going inside and why the decision that is been made are made.

I hope to go be able to enjoy this podcast in the future but for now, they had become too toxic.
