The iPhone calendar has a built-in reminder of the anniversary of the Battle of the Boyne. I don’t think it’s possible to delete this from my calendar. As anyone from Ireland or Scotland will be aware, this date is a highlight in the sectarian Orange calendar. Although brought up a Protestant, I hate sectarianism and have no wish to foster anti-Catholic or, for that matter, anti-Protestant sentiments. If people want to remember this battle, that’s fine for them, but I don’t want to be forced to commemorate a distant sectarian military conquest.
This issue has been discussed widely on social media, but Apple appears to take no notice. It is not my only gripe with Apple - I have found that the reliability of some of their modern products is not as good as earlier models.
But as someone who is not very techincally competent, my only alternative is to start using a PC, which isn’t easy for me, as I’ve been a Mac user for years.
I was very disappointed that the Indy phone was shelved. Is there any competent alternative to Apple Mac/iPhone? I would love to think that the SAFE network might open a whole new free market for computer products where developers can create fantastic new products for people to consume without government meddling and where the public can pick and choose what they want from a wide range of manufacturers, without being commercially dictated to. Is this just a fantasy?
