I can't connect the fucking safari debugger to the fucking iPad.
It opens the window and closes it after a few seconds, or sometimes (1 time out of 20) it just works, without no fucking reason.

And you should wonder "why are you asking for help here, that's not the fucking StackOverflow" the problem is that I don't know where else to ask. The next step will be resurrect Steve Jobs and just ask him why

    Well I dont think Steave Jobs envisioned a buggy safari debugger.

    But there is probably some employee in Apple that messed it up

    Jobs was a face of the company. Not the developer behind the modern mac os and iOS

    @ddit "why did you create Apple?"

    @iiii Supposedly he spent a lot of time overseeing details. Modern Apple has lost that. Even with the quantity of things they sell.

    When he died there were 3 computer models. 2 iPods. 1 Apple TV. 1 iPad. 1 router. 1 backup drive.

    Product line now? 7 computer models. 4 iPad lines. 5 iPhones. Lots of watches. Multiple Apple TV’s. 2 home pods. 2 AirPods. Etc etc.

    People have more confidence in what they are buying if there are two decent choices than seven questionable ones. A lot of apple fans became cynical because the company decided to offer “choice.” Specifically the choice to do things like buy a low spec machine with RAM soldered onto a board. So all the people that would go just buy a Mac and not worry about the specs before bought a bad experience. Wouldn’t have happened during Jobs era.

    @irene should also be noted that times were different then. Apple has grown after the Jobs era, not shrunk, so they're clearly doing something right.

    @RememberMe I disagree. Money and assessed value isn’t a good indication for business success to anyone besides shareholders.

    There are more unsustainable ways for a business to “grow” than sustainable ones. Take HTC for example which seemingly overnight became Apple’s competitor then faded. When was the last time you thought seriously about HTC?

    Apple is gradually losing their customer’s fierce brand loyalty. So growing while losing trust. Exactly like it was in the 1990’s.

    @irene and how do you draw this conclusion? It would reflect in their earnings, which only seem to be going up.

    Or in terms of market share, which is pretty healthy too.

    You could see HTC's downfall coming from a mile away, they just couldn't keep up once bigger players entered the Android market and they didn't have a USP good enough to survive (unlike eg. Xiaomi).

    @RememberMe HTC had earnings and marketshare that were going to the moon. It is easy to look back and evaluate their market-share historically but at that moment in time they were on an explosive growth path. Not a sustainable one but a growth path.

    Similarly Apple is on a growth path but we can't see it historically yet. Apple have more momentum than HTC had and that means the decline is slower.

    "Apple fanboys" aren't fanboys anymore. The "cult of mac" is gone. The normies that I know are not thinking about buying a replacement MacBook. Which thing they sell is the good one? The next CPU architecture they release looks like it is going to suck for VM use. Their services like AppleTV+, Apple Music, iCloud, and HomePod are not first choice for consumers.

    They are still getting plenty of money out of the market but they are doing it through diversification and revenue complexity. That is classic corporation moves similar to what tanked Apple in the 90's.
