I have great respect for the work Apple has done in hardware. There's no denying that their products have a nice premium feel to them, and the M1 seems to have good performance. However, I just can't get behind their software at all. It makes zero sense and feels way to restrictive. Basic tasks that you can do on an Android, like arrange your screen icons are not an option on iOS. The software is what makes it a complete deal breaker for me. Thanks as always!

Thank you guys for your thoughts. I think I needed to hear that, especially the part about it being work, I don't have to be friends with any of my coworkers. Guess I just had lot of unrealistic expectations going in. I would add that my last message didn't paint a clear picture, there was some somewhat hostile things I dealt with, but I think I'll avoid putting too much info on a semi-public forum. No need to read any of this on air. Just wanted to thank you all.

Chris Ive been living the ubiform lifestyle for 10 years now of just a plain white T shirt and jeans. My biggest recommendation is that you still have a few optional cloths like say a basic pair of khakis and a frw polo shirts because every now and again youll want to switch it up. But honestly, its been fine. Its honestly one less decision I have to make in the morning othet than "is this a pants or pajama day?"

My bad, Navy’s been working me to the bone and I forgot. 4444 is a double row of ducks. Y’all bring me a lot of value and I wanted to give value back. I didn’t work on the website cause I’m so new I was afraid I’d break something, so boosting/membership is how I do it. 2222 just didn’t feel like enough to me so I went with 4444.
