This week’s Stripings are mostly apple flavoured. Apple’s ad blockage shenanigans in the latest iOS have been generating hysterical ‘END OF EVERYTHING’ column inches all round, so to help us all get some much needed perspective we have picked out some of the more sensible ones to share.

2. Why Apple is really doing all this ad blockery

3. Why Apple is doomed

4. Why Apple is the future
