Apple Possibly slowing down own products for monetary gain.
New research shows that Apple may actually be deliberately slowing customer devices down in order to encourage the purchase of new Apple products.
A study performed by student Laura Trucco at Harvard University produced some pretty interesting results. A graph was produced showing on average, customer’s iPhone’s slowed down significantly just prior to Apple releasing its newer versions. The graph shows that this is a trend that has happened not just once, but consistently over the span of many years.
Too coincidental to be merely chance. Further, a graph showing Samsung Galaxy’s phone speeds just prior to new Samsung phones being released does not tell the same story.
Many have speculated that Apple could, in fact, be purposefully sabotaging its own devices for business. Catherine Rampell of the New York Times has suggested that Apple could be purposefully designing newer updates to function poorly with older devices.
Rampell explained, “When major innovations remain out of reach, and degrading durability threatens to tick off loyal customers, companies like Apple can still take a cue from the fashion industry.”
It wouldn’t be difficult for Apple to simply modify its devices aesthetically while keeping everything else within the device largely the same. They then go on to promoting their newer “cooler” looking devices into the mass media, hopefully pressuring people to keep up with the latest trends.
First of all, let’s keep in mind that nothing has been proven in hard fact. However, in the event that this is true, which it may very well be, let’s consider some things. Apple manipulating your friends, family, neighbors for money. Tampering with these devices. Harming the environment, as these devices have parts that need to be mined for and take a lot of energy to produce. Furthering the gap between the lower class income bracket and upper-class income bracket, giving the powers that be even more reign over the world. All of these are crimes against humanity that deserve no place in our future or the future of our kids. Whats more. If they are doing this with your technology, what else might they be doing that they aren’t telling you about? We should be working towards a future that includes ecological sustainability, openness and honesty, abundance in technology for everyone, and abundance financially for everyone. So this is a message to everyone to start thinking along these lines and to start acting congruently along these lines. If you hold a position of power in a company, use ethical business tactics. If you work for Apple, don’t listen to the boss who tells you to do something unethical. Even if it means you lose your job. Karma will reward you for it, and you will sleep better at night. Above all use your inner guidance and intuition and do what you think is right. I’ll certainly be thinking twice about my next Apple product purchase.
