Here’s a reply I posted to someone I follow on Mastodon who, on being issued an iPhone by their employer for work calls, was wondering why anyone chooses it over other options when, for example, it’s hard to sideload something as simple as a custom ringtone:

Look I need guardrails and I’ve known that ever since I was bopping around the command line on my HTC Evo 4G.

Some of us stopped headbanging not because the music left our hearts, but because if you feel something too deeply for too long it can destroy you.

That’s what was happening to me in the bowels of my root-and-rom addiction.

Now I pay 0.99 for a ringtone to Tim Apple and say thank you sir may I have another because I’m safe from sudo-ing on my phone.
