Bit of a rant about apple/dark sky, got longer than a short toot, so CW'd it
Under a week since my annual subscription auto-renewed, and #darksky goes and sells themselves to Apple, gives a three month notice that they're pulling the android app, and kills the API too.
I hate acquihires. I doubly hate it when they come with blog posts which have clearly come from the new owner's PR department.
"Our goal has always been to provide the world with the best weather information possible, to help as many people as we can stay dry and safe"
Right, sure, to help as many people as possible, you're removing both the android app *AND* killing the API, so that's both my mobile phone _and_ various integrations/automations.
Gah, this is why we can't have nice things.
I mean, yes, I am well aware that this is me taking out other frustrations on a silly little problem, compared to everything going on right now, but urgh.
A bunch of technomancers in the fediverse. Keep it fairly clean please. This arcology is for all who wash up upon it's digital shore.
