Hi Family, how’s it going?
 
 
 
Sorry you didn’t hear from us yesterday, I woke up to find a message on my iphone saying:
 
“support.apple.com/iphone/restore“
 
 
 
 
 
I have a spare iphone so I picked up that to use instead only to find that I could call and go on the internet, but that was about it.
 
 
 
 
 
The phone was useless, whenever I called anyone on phone or whatsapp it connected but I was unable to hear the other person, neither were they able to hear me.
 
 
 
 
 
The previous day both of these phones were fine.
 
 
 
 
 
This is not all.
 
 
 
 
 
The previous day my laptop stopped working.
 
 
 
My MAC BOOK PRO.
 
 
 
 
 
I was watching a YOUTUBE video of one of our NEW AUTHORS (Chris Hill):

And then suddenly the following message came on the screen:
 
 
 
  “support.apple.com/mac/startup“
 
 
 
 
 
YOU KNOW WHAT I SAY TO THIS?
 
 
 
 
 
FCUK apple.
 
 
 
 
 
 
Here are some INTERESTING FACTS:
 
 
 
 
 
These people are REAL DEVILISH.
 
 
 
 
 
ONE OF THE BEASTS OF LEVIATHAN.
 
 
 
 
 
THE 666 MARK OF THE BEAST IS A REAL THING.
 
 
 
 
 
AND THESE apple people are CERTAINLY A TEAM OF BEASTS.
 
 
 
 
 
…YOU SEE…
 
 
 
 
 
WHEN YOU OVER-stand.
 
 
 
 
 
WHEN YOU LOOK AT THE BIG PICTURE YOU CAN SEE ‘WAH GWAAN’.
 
 
 
 
 
‘they’ see it as part of a TECHNOLOGICAL EVOLUTION.
 
 
 
 
 
In the NAME of TECHNOCRACY.
 
 
 
 
 
Giants like microsoft with thier WINDOWS and apple with their IOS PLATFORMS.
 
 
 
 
 
They have MASTERED a STRATEGIC OPERATION or MASTER PLAN as they would SEE it.
 
 
 
 
 
WE SEE it as more of A SCAM.
 
 
 
 
 
Where ‘they’ ‘go out’ ROBBING THE MASSES.
 
 
 
 
 
THE REAL FUNNY THING IS THAT MOST OF Y’ALL ‘BEND OVER’ AND ‘TAKE IT’.
 
 
 
 
 
…NOT US…
 
 
 
 
 
The likes of microsoft and apple through INCONSIDERATE DESTRUCTIVE STRATEGIES like, ones that compels users to upgrade as these BIG TECH GIANTS, WITHDRAW their SUPPORT.
 
 
 
 
 
Nice people eh?
 
 
 
 
 
I KNOW they SAY:
 
 
 
 
 
BUSINESS IS BUSINESS.
 
 
 
 
 
But these types of GAMES are TAKING the ‘tings’ to a WHOLE NEW LEVEL.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
FCUK them people…
 
 
 
 
 
Excuse my FRENCH.
 
 
 
 
 
Let’s dissect these sophisticated manoeuvers.
 
 
 
 
 
Let us expose the intricacies beneath the surface.
 
 
 
 
 
At its core, this strategy is deemed to be a combination of NECESSITY and INNOVATION, driven by the relentless march of progress.
 
 
 
 
 
These tech titans, fueled by a potent blend of ambition and market dominance, operate on a simple premise:
 
 
 
To thrive, they must evolve.
 
 
 
 
 
And evolution, my friend, is a merciless mistress.
 
 
 
 
 
Picture this:
 
You’re comfortably nestled in the warm embrace of your current software version.
 
Life is good, your digital world hums along smoothly.
 
 
 
 
 
…BUT…
 
 
 
Unbeknownst to you, ‘the sands of time’ are shifting beneath your feet’.
 
 
 
 
 
With each passing day, your beloved software edges closer to obsolescence.
 
 
 
 
 
When this occurs YOU tend TO FIND the following:
 
 
 
(1). The Updates dwindle
 
 
 
(2). Support wanes
 
 
 
(3). Compatibility becomes a distant dream.
 
 
 
 
 
Enter the strategic stroke of genius.
 
 
 
microsoft and apple, MASTERS of their CRAFT, STRATEGICALLY WITHDRAWS its’ SUPPORT for OLDER VERSIONS, coercing YOU into the irresistible allure of the upgrade.
 
 
 
 
 
HOW CALLOUS, eh??
 
 
 
 
 
It is a carefully choreographed ‘ballet’ of technological seduction, designed to tantalise YOU with THE PROMISE of SHINY NEW FEATURES and ENHANCED PERFORMANCE.
 
 
 
 
 
…BUT…
 
 
 
 
 
Make no mistake, this ‘dance’ isn’t solely for the benefit of the SUPER WEALTHY and POWERFUL CONGLOMERATES.
 
 
 
 
 
No, no, no…
 
 
 
 
 
It’s a symbiotic ‘tango’, with both parties reaping the REWARDS and the MUTUAL BENEFITS.
 
 
 
 
 
It causes ‘a boom’ to their bottom line, fueling THE PERPETUAL CYCLE of INNOVATION, ensuring a steady stream of revenue from eager upgraders.
 
 
 
 
 
…YET…
 
 
 
 
 
For the unwitting users caught in the crosshairs, there lies a ‘darker’ truth.
 
 
 
 
 
The downside are EVIDENT as the SHADOW of PLANNED  OBSOLESCENCE looms large.
 
 
 
 
 
Once-cherished devices and software versions are cast aside like yesterday’s newYOUs, leaving YOU trapped in a perpetual cycle of consumption.
 
 
 
 
 
??? HOW CAN WE LET THIS BE ???
 
 
ARE YOU JUST GOING TO ‘SIT BACK’ AND LET THIS HAPPEN????
 
 
 
 
 
Compare this to the bygone days of ‘yesterday’, where craftsmanship reigned supreme.
 
 
 
 
 
The ‘TINGS’ were definitely BUILT TO LAST.
 
 
 
 
 
They were TIMES when QUALITY trumped QUANTITY.
 
 
 
 
 
PRODUCTS were built to ‘STAND THE TEST OF TIME’.
 
 
 
 
YOU COULD PAY ‘A PREMIUM’ FOR SOMETHING AND EXPECT IT TO LAST A LIFETIME.
 
 
 
 
 
The ‘TINGS’ are not the same IN THIS ‘DAY AND TIME’, with this DISPOSABLE CULTURE.
 
 
 
“ALAS!”
 
 
 
 
 
WE find OUR- SELVES in a NEW WORLD.
 
 
 
 
 
Where there is (according to the younger George Bush), A NEW WORLD ORDER.
 
 
 
 
 
One where MATERIALISM, REIGNS  SUPREME.
 
 
 
 
 
The mantra of “buy, buy, buy” ‘echoes through the halls of consumerism’.
 
 
 
 
 
The SKILLED CRAFTSMEN of old, the BLACKSMITHS, TAILORS, COBBLERS, CARPENTERS, STONE MA-SON’S, etc.
 
 
 
 
 
Who once held sway, NOW find themselves  marginalised in a world NOW obsessed with
 
 
 
 
 
…SO…
 
 
 
 
 
I implore you to ponder this:
 
 
 
in a world enamoured with the allure of ‘the new’, WHAT BECOMES  OF CRAFT-MAN-SHIP?
 
 
 
 
 
What happens when we forsake REPAIR for the calls of CONSUMPTION.
 
 
 
 
 
Most importantly, what role will you play in this ever-evolving dance of progress?
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
PEACE & LOVE
