Apple has removed all the reviews from their website and it could be my fault.
On November 13, Manzana introduced the new 16-inch Macbook Pro. Most Apple fans were excited to see that this laptop fixed many of the issues with the previous version, such as keyboard, cooling, and the reintroduction of a physical escape key. Patrick and I were happy with the updates, but we were still upset that Apple is exclusively using Thunderbolt 3 ports on the laptop.
Having to carry a bunch of dongles is annoying, but it would be acceptable if the dongles were reliable. In our experience, dongles have never been reliable. We decided to make a video about our experience using Apple-branded and third-party USB C dongles.
As you can imagine, the response to this video was divided. Windows users who had never used the Macbook before sided with us, with Apple fans dismissing the video and saying that we were either Apple’s enemies or didn’t have the correct dongles.
To prove that I wasn’t “looking for Apple” or just an idiot, I made a second video. In this video I went to Apple.com and checked all the dongles on their website.
A day after this video was posted, Apple removed all reviews from its website.
Here is my answer.
It seems unlikely that a company the size of Apple will be nimble enough to revamp a website in one day. At the same time, it seems unlikely that this is all a coincidence. I honestly don’t know what to believe.
Whether this is my fault or not, I feel like the situation is even worse now. Rather than address the problem, Apple has simply covered up the complaints. I love Apple products, I have a lot of them. I just want them to work reliably.
