In response to the tons of annoying Apple product related spam recently cluttering your dashboard, we have teamed up with Apple’s development team to ACTUALLY GIVE AWAY APPLE PRODUCTS! Under the condition that you agree to “test” the product, by allowing basic debug data to be automatically sent to Apple’s dev and diagnostics teams.
So, in a nutshell..

I am only reblogging this to point out that if it is in fact from the Tumblr staff blog (rather than some kind of spam or phishing exercise) that I am in no way interested in promotions, including ones offering Apple products. Promotions I am uninterested in generally because it’s one of the variables turning the internet into yet another consumerist wasteland. Apple products because:
- Value for money (even if free to me) is highly questionable. As a regretful iPod owner, I can tell you that there are much better quality MP3 devices for cheaper, that don’t suffer from the same irritating software issues.
- More importantly, although I don’t have reason to trust pretty much any mass manufacturing firms these days, Apple is currently implicated in some serious human/worker’s rights breaches associated with the sub-contractor Foxconn in China. The level of seriousness is so extreme it makes me want to vomit. It’s pretty much slavery. So fuck that. I recommend if you can boycott Apple, do it. Same with any Foxconn manufactured goods.
- Oh yay, everyone has iPods and iPhones, I’m totally going to jump on that bandwagon and even sleep over on the streets to get in on the new model. NOT. Are you kidding???? Fuck that. It’s as stupid as going shopping just because something is on sale. Don’t need it, don’t want it, think it’s a symptom of our current global disease.
OCCUPY REAL BLOG POSTS, comrades.
