that's a rumour and one which you don't even understand what's involved
because you know so very little about apple, macs and ios.
mark used to have good sources, but most of them have dried up.
> Apple does remove apps
apple may sometimes remove apps from the app store, but they do *not*
remove apps from the device.
however, both apple and google do have a kill switch in the event of
something major, such as *very* malicious malware, but so far in the
nearly 10 year history of apple's app store, it's never been used, even
for apps that get pulled from the store.
on the other hand, google *has* removed apps from user's devices.
as usual, your hatred is directed at the wrong company.

actually it was win8 and failed, which is why win10 took a step back
from that plan, but why let facts get in the way.

no it isn't, nor has it been called metro for years.

no they aren't.

iphone and ipad apps don't run on macs at all, so therefore they
*can't* sell on macs. it also makes zero sense, for reasons well beyond
on the other hand, mac apps run on macs (crazy, but it's true!) and do
sell, some exceptionally well.

nonsense, nor is that even possible.
do you really think users are going to lift their imac off the table to
tilt and shake it to play the same games they're playing on their
iphone or ipad?

nope on that too.

that's why they make 100 foot extension cords.
