While it is no secret that exploitative practices are interlaced with capitalistic tendencies, the practices are becoming intolerable. Signing up to pay usually takes only two clicks that are prominently visible whereas cancelation options are hidden away in deep settings requiring multiple clicks. Pricing often feel arbitrary with no reference points. Every large company grows with the intention of exhibiting monopolistic behavior. This is not sustainable and should not be tolerated.

      Why do I have to tell my computer several time per week that I do not wish to let the X box app make changes to my computer?? I’ve never had anything to do with an X box. Oh, now you’re going to make my computer unusably slow unless I update and… what’s that… ? I can’t fucking update unless I ALLOW X BOX APP TO MAKE CHANGES TO MY COMPUTER??? Fuck you windows 11.

        Sounds like it’s not your computer.

        To be clear, I do believe it is your computer, but it sure sounds like it isn’t.

        Man, even just 10 years ago the immediate assumption is that you got some horrible virus for your computer to behave like that.

        Boiling frog analogy.
