The Catalina Files: a timeline of 79 previously published articles dating from when, some ten years ago, Rixstep first became aware that something was going very wrong at Apple, from the time of those first wobbly years after the 'merger' with NeXT, and through to the time when iPhone was first introduced and when major changes were subsequently made in the way Apple did business, and how they treated their customers and developers, and how they consequently incurred the condemnation of the industry, by everyone from Paul Graham to the New York Times to Forbes.
2020-02-07 Keymaster: Mind the gap!
History won't be kind to Tim Cook. Not computer history, not history in general.
