I love to hate by CharsiBevda I love to hate by CharsiBevda
Ah........Apple.. ..the company who's products I love and who's business ethics and arrogance I hate. What's a stylish product lover like me going to do....

Emulate, that's what :p

Wallpaper is a *cough* semi-rip ...er.. 'adaptation' from someone else's wall ;)

Oh, and check out my sexy browser font rendering in Midori 0.4.61 ---> [link] and Firefox 15.01 ----> [link]

Thanks man :)

By business ethics I mean their antics of bloody overcharging for just about everything. People defend their pricing by saying.. "Hey Macs last atleast 2-3 times more than normal PCs/laptops and are better built". My answer? Yeah, for that price no wonder it's better built... the kind of money they extort for you for Macs, a high build quality should be default. You don't really have a choice there.

It also won't harm to give customers a better hardware config for that price, because even with a better config, they still make profits. But no... they give last years specs and charge you current gen specs. And don't even get me started on their upgrade pricing.. HD upgrade.. RAM upgrade etc. It's highway robbery :/ Also, with their current SUE SUE way of business, It makes me sad that I own an iPhone. It's beyond ridiculous.

As I mentioned above, I do like their products, but I swear I won't ever pay full retail price for their products - NEVER again.

you're right.
The worst is that people defend the company.
They make billions to the detriment of our a**es and when there is a new product you see tv services(advertisement is the right term) where there are hundred quequed for hours!
Obv is not only an apple speech.

no, no.. you're right, the prices are outrageously unjustified, you can get better laptops/phones hardware-wise for half the money and it's no exaggeration. there's no justification for the pricetag - except... you see i would call it a business model rather than business ethics. some people are simply willing to get ripped off in order to acquire the illusion that paying more makes them better. it's base materialism but - hats off to apple. if they weren't also run scared and crazy with patent lawsuits i'd actually respect them a lot - as a business. meanwhile as you so well demonstrate, the UI is easy to emulate, what's underneath? a bunch of unix, just like linux only restricted, plus we have have better font rendering in linux :D

Haha yep you're right. What I was actually referring to is their current state of affairs regarding their so called 'Intellectual Property' (IP). Until now they've stolen so many things from OSS, plus continue to steal. And when someone tries to emulate them, they sue! That's a really shitty business ethic. Thay also have a long history of ripping off Cydia developers, copying their features and integrating it into iOS and calling it magical, revolutionary and Innovation! Can't get any more shittier than this :/

Also, Imagine taking open source BSD and adding a shit ton of proprietary code to it, and releasing it to the masses under the guise of MacOS. Granted, BSD is open source, but what ever happened to contributing back to the community you've taken so fucking much from? :/

That is why I'll never pay full retail price for any Apple product ever again. They are frauds, plain and simple :D

under the BSD license steve the innovative salesman was perfectly within his rights to pillage the code and close-source it. i think the concept of a "community" was very alien to him.
also i bet some steve wannabes wish that they could have done the same to debian :D alas there was the GPL..

It's actually very easy. Install the add-on called 'Stylish' on Firefox and then head to userstyles.org. Over there, search for the userstyle named 'Mac OSX font rendering for windows based browsers' and install it. Restart your browser... and done. Same procedure for Midori, enable the 'User styles' plugin in Midori and install the style, restart Midori and it's done.

It does say 'for windows based browsers' but it works absolutely fine in Linux.

Oh wow, it's just a universal text shadow? I thought it was some sort of special confguration for fontconfig-infinality or something. It looks so good! Thanks for the tip!

You mean the Menu (File, Edit, View, Go, Bookmarks, Help) after 'File Manager'? Or the 'Wallpapers' on the window? It's the window title on the window itself.. and the menu is grabbed by the Global Menu applet :D
