Apple Core Rot: the Arrogance of Apple User Interface Design in macOS Big Sur

I get it—a few million people really do want their Macs to look like a shitty tiny iPhone screen. It has a certain value from a familiarity standpoint.

That’s why I like a steering wheel just like the one in my car on my f***ing bicycle.

I don’t mind so much if Apple wants to spend it’s engineering money on a few useless doodads. But I do mind a lot when (a) bugs are out of control, and (b) there is no way to turn this useless crapware off—unlike every other thing that goes into the menu bar.

I use my 2019 Mac Pro for work, for long hours. It has to perform. Accordingly, I take a dim view of bugs and crapware that gets in my way for getting that job done.

Does Apple really think I spent $19K on a Mac Pro for this engineering diarrhea? Worst 'spend' on Apple EVER. I wish I had stuck to an iMac. What a turd-flush of capital and no goddamn plunger to be found and my socks feel wet.

As shown below, every single feature in this new macOS Big Sneer control panel is USELESS to me, because I never use them*. Yet there is no way to remove this new turd from the menu bar.

Thing is, I could live with this stupidity if macOS Big Sure weren’t so full of other bugs. Whatever manager needed to piss on the fire hydrant instead of having the engineers fix bugs ought to be fired.

* Gigabit ethernet, no need for Bluetooth, never AirDrop, never screen mirror, my display is calibrated to a target brightness, sound is already in the Sound icon in the menu bar, and I don’t listen to music on my Mac Pro. Crapware.
