An open letter to Tim Cook. Dear Tim,. I enjoyed watching your interview with Charlie Rose last month where you said “you're not our product”. That's why I still use a Mac, iPhone, and iPad as stopgaps instead of Google's spyware until we have our own platform and the Indie Phone.

I'm very drawn to Python's syntax, but the v2/v3 thing scares me away from using it for anything serious.
