Why I've fallen out of love with Apple

I'm aware of how melodramatic 'I've fallen out of love with Apple' sounds and perhaps how self-involved it makes me appear, but I stand by the statement because for the largest part it's true. Like a long-term relationship that's gradually gone off the boil and over the years has lost its spark and excitement, so Apple has gradually fallen out of my affections and no longer pushes the same designer buttons it once did.

And before anyone accuses me of jumping on the anti-Apple bandwagon, this isn't an exercise in Apple-bashing or some misguided hipster notion of running against the grain of the dominant, corporate behemoth in favour of the underdog. Nor is it even a rant about some of the questionable business decisions the company has made or its approach to censorship (although I could write a word or two on that last one).
