I’m going to describe the crippling I have discovered so far, and some pointers to the work arounds that I’ve found. But that’s not the purpose of my writing. My purpose instead is to say what should be obvious: Apple deals with us in a psychologically pathological way, and if that doesn’t change, it’s time to leave.
