Apple needs to give its employees paid time off to vote
When you think of tech giants what might immediately come to your mind is Samsung, Amazon, and Microsoft. You probably also think of Apple. And it’s true, Apple is the #1 tech company in the U.S. in terms of revenue. Hundreds of companies have pledged to give their employees time off and resources to vote on Election Day — but, with Election Day quickly approaching, Apple still has not. Without Apple’s support, thousands of companies aren’t feeling the pressure to give their employees paid time off to vote. Apple is one of the largest job creators in the United States, employing over two million people. With America’s current abysmal turnout rate, we need their help more than ever. We need to band together and pressure Apple to give its employees paid time off to vote. Sign now and tell Apple that it needs to act as a leader and give its employees paid time off to vote this Election Day.
Apple publicly commit to work with Nvidia on drivers for Mac OS 10.14
The community of people who have chosen to use Nvidia products with their Apple hardware demands that Apple permit Nvidia to make web drivers that work with all Mac OS versions going forward. Being able to utilize the hardware acceleration provided by Nvidia is vital to many of us, as are the bug fixes and features introduced with the application and OS updates. These drivers have always been available, but Apple now blocks Nvidia from supporting OS 10.14 Mojave We demand that Apple publicly commit to a support plan to work with Nvidia to provide continuous support for their customers. By signing this petition, we are making our voices heard. If issues persist and we are feeling neglected, we will: Contact Apple Customer Support until it is fixed Email Apple Execs i.e. firstname.lastname@example.org Tweet @tim_cook using hashtag #UnblockNVIDIA: https://twitter.com/tim_cook Register bugs at https://developer.apple.com/ bug-reporting/
Remove NRATV from AppleTV
The NRA contributes millions of dollars to politicians to prevent the passage of sensible gun control laws, resulting in thousands of deaths and dozens of mass shootings each year, including the recent shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, FL. Apple TV carries NRA TV, a 24-hour streaming service with 22 original series that promote the NRA's propaganda, and there’s even an entire segment devoted to how it should be easier to purchase an AR-15. When you partner with an organization like the NRA and even promote their propaganda, some of the blood on their hands rubs off on you. We call on you to stop carrying NRA TV on your service.
Extend Music Downloads for Deployed Military
Deployed military members often have a difficult time accessing WiFi. Now especially, in the current COVID crisis, the military has had to implement new policies and adapt schedules to ensure the health and safety of deployed personnel. For example, deployed Active Duty Navy personnel will have fewer opportunities to pull into different ports and access resources like WiFi on land as the Navy attempts to limit their exposure. Music is an enormously helpful outlet during the stress of deployments, providing moments of relief during the months-long stretches of difficult work and constant time away from home. On the 30th day of separation from comforts such as WiFi, the paying subscribers to services like Spotify and Apple Music lose access to their downloaded music. It can be weeks or months before military members are able to reach internet access and refresh their much-needed, and still paid for, music collection. Spotify and Apple must develop an option for deployed military members to extend the length of their download to account for the unique limitations of their environment. Please help spread the word of this simple way to support our service men and women.
URGE AUBURN UNIVERSITY TO WAIVE OUT OF STATE TUITION FOR ONLINE CLASSES
In 2020, students of Auburn University have faced the unexpected hardship of transitioning to online classes. Many of these student's families have been negatively effected financially, emotionally, mentally, and much more due to Covid-19, a virus none of us expected to turn our worlds upside down. With that being said, due to the financial losses and the devastation to the "true college experience," we are asking Auburn University to waive the large Out-of-State Tuition costs of the online classes a large majority of their students will be subject to taking. Online classes can be taken anywhere; you do not have to be on campus to participate in them, therefore that very fact justifies that students should not have to pay Out-of-State Tuition to take them. Waiving the fee would also encourage students to stay home and continue to social distance while they continue learning. Students would not feel pressured to come back to campus to get their "money's worth" if Auburn waived the Out-of-State Tuition. We are asking Auburn University to understand this plea in this desperate time of need. I believe we can make change to better this University for all students regardless of their home state location during this time. I believe in Auburn!

ANTIFA should have to play by the same rules as everyone else on social media. Suspend now
Recently, Alex Jones and InfoWars were censored by Facebook, YouTube, iTunes, Spotify, and other social media and big tech platforms. Twitter then suspended Gavin McInnes and his fraternity, the Proud Boys. Media tried to fake a connection between the McInnes and his enemies in the alt-right. With Silicon Valley suspensions flying around, why hasn't Antifa, the paramilitary arm of the Resist movement, been banned from social media? Antifa calls themselves anti-fascist, but they're anything but. They have a manual that trains them in terroristic tactics (Black bloc). They've bloodied journalists and conservatives in the streets. They're committed to violence and organized in very much the same way that Al Qaeda's terror network is. Social Media should not be a home for left-wing, violent radicalization. America cannot afford for another leftist to gun down a dozen GOP Congressmen at a baseball field or attack a US Senator in his own yard. Antifa is violating the Terms of Service of big tech and should be permanent suspended from all platforms. Tell the CEOs of Silicon Valley that Antifa and Democrats should play by the same rules as everybody else! Please spread the word. Enforce the rules: suspend Antifa.
Apple: Bring back Slide to Unlock in iOS 10
Apple needs to bring back Slide to Unlock in iOS 10. An option to enable Slide to Unlock provides users with a feature they are used to having and still want. The FOUR main reasons to bring back Slide to Unlock are: there have been issues with devices having broken Home buttons from frequent use. By increasing the usage of the Home button to unlock the device, there is greater likelihood the Home button will be broken and thus decreasing customer satisfaction. from an ergonomic standpoint, pressing the home button to unlock forces the user to perform actions at 2 different positions to work with the device--first press the home button and second reposition one's finger to interact with the touchscreen. Bringing back Slide to Unlock allows the user's finger to already be positioned to interact with the device after unlocking the screen. Slide to Unlock falls in line with Apple's DNA in making things work as simply as possible. Users are accustomed to Slide to Unlock so this should be a feature that is at least an option to have. Inadvertent activation of Siri which delays the user from reaching their home screen. Frequent occurrences have caused users to turn Siri off. If you are an iOS user, please help Apple realize their mistake and support this petition. This is a simple (previous) feature request which Apple could implement at a moment's notice. Thank you for your support!
No to phone camera stalkers! Smartphones must indicate whether taking a selfie or a photo
Dear Tim Cook, Since Apple has always been at the forefront of change, I want to bring an important issue to your attention. I frequently see men pretending to take “selfies” in public places, when in fact they are taking photos, or a video, of the person sitting or standing opposite. Most frequently, this is a young female (or parts of her body). The same goes in all public places, cafés, beaches, swimming pools, libraries, etc. These individuals are taking photos, or videos, without the women’s consent, respecting neither their image rights nor their privacy. I have seen individuals taking pictures of children using the same method. I do not like to imagine why anyone would want to take photos of someone else’s child. In short, this double camera technique has become a stalker’s device, whenever it is used while the owner of the phone is pretending to take a selfie. We need a flashing red light on the IPhone that shows when someone is taking a picture of us and not a selfie. Please help us fight stalking and invasive behavior. Yours expectantly, Natacha HenryFeminist author, Paris, France
Apple şirketi ürünlerine Kürtçe dil seçeneği koysun #appleîkurdî #kürtçeapple
Merhaba Değerli Kürt kardeşlerim, Apple Şirketi ve onun CEO'su; Kürtçe dünya üzerinde en çok konuşana sahip dillerden biridir. Ancak Kürtler'in dillerini çok sevmelerine karşın Apple Şirketi’nin ürünlerindeki dil seçeneğinde Kürtçe seçeneği yoktur. Günümüzde Kürtler Apple ürünlerini hayatlarının her alanında kullanmaktadırlar. Bununla birlikte bu ürünleri kendi dillerinde kullanma şansına sahip olmak istemektedirler. Bu da Apple’ın eşitlik ilkesiyle uyuşmaktadır. Biz Kürtler Apple’ın ürünlerine Kürtçe dil seçeneği ekleme vaktinin çoktan geldiğini düşünüyoruz. Şüphesiz Apple bunu yaparak tüm ulusumuzun sevgisini kazanacaktır. Hayallerimizi gerçekleştirmek için bu kampanyayı imzalayarak bize destek olmanızı rica ediyoruz. Saygılarla... Diro xwişk û birayên min ên bihêja ên kurd, Beşgeha Apple û CEOyê wê; Kurdî yek ji zimanên xwedî pirtirîn axiveran e li cîhanê. Lê li gel ku kurd ji zimanê xwe pir hez dikin jî di vebijêrka zimên a berhemên Beşgeha Appleê de kurdî (kurmancî,soranî,kelhurî,lekî) tune ye. Di roja îroyîn de kurd di her warê jîna xwe de berhemên Appleê (dengber,kombers,demjimêr...) bi kar tînin. Li gel vê yekê kurd dixwazin bibin xwedî bextê bikaranîna her berhemî bi zimanê kurdî. Ev yek jî bi rêgeza wekheviya Appleê li hev dike. Em wekî kurd diramin ku ji zû ve dema tevlîkirina zimanê kurdî di berhemên Apple de hatiye. Bi vê kiryariyê bêguman dê Apple heziya hemû neteweya me bi dest bixe. Xwişk û birayên min ên kurd ji bo verastandina vê xewna me bi şanenavên xwe piştgiriya helmetê bikin. Bi rêz û giramî... Hello dear my kurd brothers and sisters ,Apole Company and its CEO, Kurdish language is one of the most spoken languages all over the World. Nevertheless, Apple Company still doesn’t have a Kurdish language option in language settings of its product inspite of the fact that Kurdish people are very fond of their own language. Kurds are now using Apple product in all aspects of life. Accordingly, they want to have the chance to carry out eveything in these products in their own language, which goes well together with the fairness principle of Apple. We kurds believe that it is high time Apple provided Kurdish language in its products. By doing this, Apple will absolutely gain the appreciation of a whole nation, Kurds. To realise our dreams, we request from our Kurdish brothers and sisters to support us by signing this campaign. Regards...
