Wow, some click bait: I returned the new iPad Pro less than 24 hours

Guess its a slow news day. This is from business insider, which I always thought was a more "reliable" (maybe thats not the exact word Im looking for) kind of place. In restrosepct, the site seems to be full of of clickbait ads... "play this for 1 minute" " Before you buy solar" "gowns that stole the show" etc, etc. 105 total after every article.

This article is an "opinion" piece, at the end "This is an opinion column. The thoughts expressed are those of the author"

Which seems kinda weird? No facts?

Its kinda long, and full of "huh" and "duh" statements. And he must mention the price a hundred times. Or "I stood in line to buy one". You kinda stand in line to buy anything?

Like this one: The iPad will always run iOS, and iOS comes with limitations. Yes, it's easy for users to understand, with all those floating apps you download from the App Store. But the system itself is not nearly as robust or powerful as a desktop operating system like MacOS or Windows.

I returned the new iPad Pro less than 24 hours after buying it — here's why [www.businessinsider.com]

Business Insider has gone far downhill, just like Yahoo, CNN and PMSNBC. Almost in the bottom of the barrel with The National Enquirer, Star, The Globe, and National Examiner

I wouldn't bother with a site that I had to verify things on that site with another site.

I think it's pretty clear OS X is on the way out. Apple puts very little effort into it. Ten years max and we will be running IOS on everything, locked down, barely able to do anything...or we will learn a lot more about Linux. Ok, I'm being super negative because I'm sick so I'll just stop my rant.
