God, iTunes sucks.
Me: Hey Apple, three movies I bought disappeared from my iTunes library.
Apple: Oh yes, those are not available anymore. Thank you for buying them. Here are two movie rentals on us!
Me: Wait... WHAT??

@tim_cook when did this become acceptable?

Doublespeak is language that deliberately obscures, disguises, distorts, or reverses the meaning of words.

So you "bought" some movies, and now they are 'no longer available', so you get rentals. That means you didn't buy anything. That's not the meaning of the word 'buy'


@Qwxlea Technically wasn't me, I think Moa lost the original person I retweeted 😓
