for every thing that someone tweets about how the Apple Card is nicer/friendlier to use (like the ease of how to opt out of mandatory arbitration), there seems to be another “gotcha” that you don’t have to put up with on normal credit cards https://twitter.com/itsnicolenguyen/status/1161037152144068609

eagerly look forward to learn how much of a bath veriz-ahoo took on this https://twitter.com/verge/status/1161013910964789250

I think this means I get to run around the office wearing one of these
