Fuck you and Marco for even entertaining the bullshit notion that shipping the iPhone X with a notch has anything remotely to do with courage.

This.

For me, it's caring for a terminally ill parent who has hallucinations and tries to throw things at you. It took all the courage I could muster to do that every day for years.

I understand they may impact Shareholder ValueTM with a bad design decision, but it's not courage. It's not even remotely close.

We joke around that Marco, Gruber et.al. are deluded and out of touch, but this is a little beyond the pale. These guys are unhinged.
