Written by Ashton Deroy, independent comm tech supporter. Apple’s value as a company has moved to the trillions. In 2014-2016 I worked in the communications technology field in cellular company call center outsourcers. This is where I would have serviced Iphone’s in my professional career from the customer service perspective. This post outlines a SWOT analyis on Iphone Product support.
This product is designed to do two things.
Strengths in servicing an IPhone

Weaknesses in servicing the IPhone Customers don’t understand the asset’s tab
Opportunities to improve I-Phone Service
Threats to I-Phone customer service
I-Phones are technologically intriguing products that lead the industry, but how long can the success last with Android continuing their innovation? What will happen in the North American Market as consumers shift to the use of used electronics, eco-friendly & fair trade companies? One has to think these changes will leave Apple out in the dust when the value of the company eventually decreases due to lack of market sustainability. What are SWOT Analysis shows?
It shows that Apple Products have perceived customer value. However may have to go to extreme lengths of leveraging credit to purchase the products. Once the demand for credit decreases so to should the demand on high cost cellular products. Ultimately it is my feeling that these phones offer more value than consumers require from their telephone service which will make consumer eventually want a simpler option.
This could possibly lead to the loss of momentum in Apple products when the company eventually retracts from the market. A Trillion dollars in market value can not be retained especially as the North American Markets move to Conservative ideological economic values which are used to reduce debt in both Business to Business & Business to consumer markets.
If you live in North Bay & Struggle. I hope this is an option that has been made readily available to you.

“Crime, is it is nuisance to society & a black-white way of reviewing people’s capacity for goodness? Or is a crime a mechanism used by the lower class as a method of survival.” Ashton Deroy
Over the weekend I placed myself in North Bay to recover from flu for which I overstressed. It is here where I am staying with 2 individuals. One who is diagnosed with PTSD one of the conditions I have. As well as another individual with autism a condition I also share. In order to protect their identities, their names will be omitted from this article. My trip to get here was over 10 hours including my commute into downtown Toronto. Since arriving I have had traveling sickness & 2 major anxiety attacks.
It was here I learned about the policing environment executed in North Bay. Sure on the surface, it looks like a town all nice & cutely put together. Decorated with Private businesses & plenty of middle class to go around. It is the kind of place where someone can get drunk in their buddy’s shed. However, behind that quietness, there is a silent sadness occurring.
People with mental disorders in this town seem to shut out the world. At 7/23/2018 I am in a home with the aforementioned amazing hosts & because of the environment with frequent rainfall & social class policing my hosts are often locked inside. Where are their supports? This is going to have to be a question I answer in this journal.
What is Crime Prevention, according to Wikipedia refer to the quote below:
This article discusses the ugliness is racial profiling that exists in an overactive policing system related to New York. City. https://www.aljazeera.com/programmes/insidestoryamericas/2012/06/201261952286250.html
How does this relate to North Bay?
New York is 10 hours away from North Bay.
About a 3-hour drive from Toronto.
Plus 22 hours from Ottawa.
These three communities probably have the biggest influence on the structure created for North Bay society. I said earlier that this was largely a private community. Tons of small businesses, churches & tourism spots.
How does the policing look?
It is 8:00am/800. I am going to walk around to see if I can see a patrol car watching things. I want to mention that I believe even if they used a complaint based policing system in this town. The enforcement may still be executed much too swiftly. As commonly believed political theory states that Conservatism of a private economy much resembles a cleaner but still a devastating organizational fascism.
The police do not know me in this town. So if one was to profile me I am going to look disabled, in sweatpants & a baggy misfitting t-shirt. If possible I would love the chance to talk to a police officer about this crime prevention service. I will let you know how it goes.
Private communities AKA “outside my door I am blind.”
I am from a small town called Brighton Ontario. This above quote is the unfortunate truth I know about private communities.
Even from my time growing up in rural Canada. There was no teaching my community fast enough about the changed landscape of gay rights, religious freedoms & non-conforming gender individuals. The community was too busy devouring anyone who seemed different.
My new friend out patrolling at 800/8:00am. In case you missed it, I tried to get myself profiled in raggedy clothes so I could ask them about their crime prevention service. What I think I did wrong & what I can’t duplicate? Police have never agitated me so I don’t initiate hostility with them like my friends who claim,”We get pulled over all the time.” I also had brushed hair. A guy with brushed hair in sweatpants with big arms is just a fitness freak. When the hair is unruly that is when you get profiled as a lower class citizen.
My experience with police is more helpful than most. Police have been used to calm me and intervene in behaviors where I was a danger to myself as a young person with autism. This is one thing the Quinte West OPP do really well. I can remember when I was 14 the police have to get involved with stopping my mom’s intoxicated driving boyfriend. Back then it was one of the best things that could have possibly happened to our family.
Unfortunately, our mom stuck with him through his stupidities & he continues to abuse as well as scare me until I moved out at 14. That was the first time I was kicked out!
Is crime about survival?
“You won’t let me have the resources I need, so I find them.” I think that is what my friends would say if they were as articulate as me. You forget with the disability comes an innate barrier. You can’t access employment because so much of your life is out of control, you can’t access community resources because of they all close early, but you can access a hospital. Which is ironic since many of us in and around Toronto end up there after pushing our mental buttons down too hard.
A little hint, “Crime is about survival.”
Questions I still have.

You will notice Seneca Pride is on a leash on this picture & SSF is the master. That is because in my unfiltered opinion that is the relationship between the Seneca Pride & Seneca Student Federation.
I was kicked out of the group in 2018 for posting an equal opportunity job posting on their Facebook page. If it doesn’t sound stupid enough, the administration including Melissa Ronson & Stephanie Bagley continued to harass me over a mistake I didn’t even know I was making at the time.
I could be bitter, I could be by myself. I decided to write this review instead.
Not only do I not consider it an overly safe space. I consider it to be a clique in its current state. If you don’t serve Queen Bagley & the Seneca Student Federation at this time you have no use to anyone here. “OFF WITH YOUR HEAD!” The Queen seeks blood. When she is not ditching the group to hang out with her girlfriend of the month.
Again how can you be a mental health resource when you serve only the parties interested on a bureaucratic level? They fired there web designer because he posted a bad job posting. They should of fired me over writing something like this. Now I am free to do this though so it sucks to be you Seneca Pride.
No it should not be. The group has operated very unprofessionally and turned triggering a new PTSD patient in to a fun pass time for the admin group Melissa Ronson & Stephanie Bagley. I feel like this group is only now useful to serve the bureaucratic purposes of these individuals & therefore is less useful to the autisi-queer population, Seneca outliers from the main communities & Non-Binary persons.
The admin are a team of *** kissers who avoid conflict with the Seneca Student Federation. at all cost even when groups of the organization are offended by a Seneca Student Federation event. Then they took the extra steps to try & censor me for hosting this forum to the full expression of free speech that it deserves!
I hate to say it but you deserve to be on this forum. Not only are you a group that doesn’t stick up properly for your legal standards of human rights. You are now a group monopolized by a social clique. It is disgusting and it spits on everything LGBTQ+ people fought for to get the charter of human rights.
Are you concerned about this article? Lets talk about it. I am 100% open to conversations with people outside the Seneca Student Federation. Contact me personally at Ashtonderoy@gmail.com or add me to WhatsApp at 647-850-6802. I want as many people to know as many details as humanly possible for this article.

Most famously I was well known for trying to manage the internal chaos of the Kingston pride event in 2016. I was trying relieve tensions with Kingston pride & the gender-nonconforming community by being out myself as gender non-conforming and showing the support Kingston pride had given to me.

I just wanted to share more of the spirit of Toronto Pride today. So all day I will be uploading photo & video content to my LGBTQ+ resource hub.
I think my favorite photo has to be with my new friend Rosie who have I enjoyed my time with thus far. So now what now what is the plan for the Mayb?
Well we are actually toying with making this the place for the starter company ad agency. We already have the website infrastructure in place and this is one of the higher rated projects I run on WordPress so it just seems like this could work out really well.
Right now we are up to something like 40 subscribers in our global circulation and I am really enthused about the global community relationships I have been working to build.
As far as social media goes, I just filter all my home grown projects through my name now. So be sure to like my page on Facebook below. Thank you for reading, subscribe, comment or email, firstname.lastname@example.org

Hey guys, so I have actually been working the WordPress space a lot today. I just wanted to create some backlinks to my other work. I am a website publisher who does their CMS projects through WordPress. The Mayb is a portfolio project to grant me freedoms to network in the LGBTQ community. This is something important to me after I was censored by Seneca Pride for the benefit of the Student Seneca Federation. There will be more on that story soon.
Enjoy the Toronto Pride pictures. I added titles & descriptions for the purposes of search engine indexing & humor. Just a Queer with a joint, a camera & a Fiverr account.
The other space I updated today is my medical marijuana journal. Check out the post here.
Is Seneca Newnham Pride enough for the struggling LGBTQ+ students at Seneca campuses? Not unless advertising the college at a Parade is the only need of the campus. In 2017-2018 Ashton Deroy helped the Seneca Pride President & Vice President in trying to make Seneca Pride a more accommodating group to Seneca College. However, there were major roadblocks.
In May 2018, Ashton Deroy was dismissed from the Seneca Pride team as the secretary after two years split between an executive and volunteer web coordinator position. In this interview, Diana Skye will ask questions about the dissolve, the state of the group, and Seneca Student Federation. On May 27th Diana Skye called Ashton Deroy over VoIP to get the details of this interview.
Why did you get involved with Seneca Pride?
I wanted to meet a guy, it sounds cliche, right? Just that I thought this would be a great place to meet my potential boyfriend. What I ended up finding instead? This was my purpose for working with the group which was helping LGBTQ+ plus people with activism, resources, and politics.
How did you help Seneca Pride during your time there? What did you hope to achieve with the group?
With Seneca Pride, I donated my web design graduate certificate from St. Lawrence college as I manage the group’s social media, website and event promotion. What I did is make sure things didn’t go static as often as I could. I was often working hard to manage this dovetailed with other obligations like reaching out to new business clients, starting our first SEO project the Toronto-Businessphere and managing the business school courses. However, I was passionate about connecting students with the Seneca Pride/Out&About resource.
What was the impact of Seneca Pride becoming part of the Seneca Student Federation?
At first, this was a really positive alliance and indexing. However, over time the SSF has shifted to a more fascist & authoritarian style of management you see this with the high regulation on SSF student government campaigns. This trickled down to our group in my dismissal, I posted an opportunity for students to use me as a reference to get involved with my current employer. At this job, they would have made $15 then $16 an hour. This was my way of addressing the income inequality issue faced by LGBTQ+ students. This was the event that leads to my dismissal due to a policy that considered this outside promotion of another employer. This will not be considered valid to me. I consider it student censorship.
What happened after you were dismissed from Seneca Pride? How do you see the group going forward without your services?
I’ve had people tell me they can manage it all without me. The truth is the President for 2018 was almost never there because of her outside involvements which often lead to the group devolving into chaos. The new president for the next school year left the group in 2017 as soon as she had a girlfriend and was never very much help at all after that. I think the future is bleak because you have an executive team that operates a clique and rejects foreign ideas. The censorship they are committing is directly going to interfere with the group being considered a safe space and should directly impact their ability to have office space.
Diana Skye says: Thank you for your time, Ashton. I think that you joined Seneca Pride with the best intentions. However, I cannot say the same for the leaders of the group and the Seneca Student Federation. It appears that they do not like dissenting opinions since they are micromanaging everything. I agree that their future is bleak. They will have more issues if they do not change their approach.
Ashton Deroy concludes: I also want to say during my time at Seneca College. I have suffered from PTSD as a result of an ex-abusive relationship. Not only was I barely able to share in Seneca Pride, but I was quite easily outcast and isolated. There was a video I recorded for the counseling department that says how much this group helped with my depression. Well, it is a good thing I got a medical marijuana prescription because the last communications I had with the Seneca Pride executives were all triggering! Fortunately thanks to the help of the counselors alone. I will be connecting with the 519 group in Toronto for LGBTQ+ counseling within the community.

Hey, so you’ve connected to my webspace because there is a lot to see. I am an ex-ad salesperson with an adventurous entrepreneur’s spirit & a tech support person’s continuing curiosity. I often get asked, how did you begin your journey as a designer? Believe it or not, I am not going to talk about college here. I actually used to organize the bulletin boards of promotional music for Riverside Music in 2013-2014.
It was actually here when I was a punk kid where my manager told me she thought I had the spirit of an artist. Of course, I disregarded it, pretended it was just something older people said to teenagers. Was she ever right though? Her name was Maggie and she gave me the best co-op experience I’ve ever had high school or college.
When we were struggling with our home lives in 2013, Maggie would invite us to after-school events at the Riverside Music. So I and my brother could escape to the sound of music and remember for a minute, we are just teenagers. The weight of the world does not need to be on our shoulders. Amongst the artists/musicians & the counterculture youth groups was always where my brother & I felt most at home. As two gay youth in the small town of Quinte West.

Anonymous request for advice from Ryley,
“My sister who is bisexual and a teen is experiencing a rebellious phase with marijuana misuse. Do you have any experience in this area?”
While I did go through a rebel phase (it is hard not to with parents who don’t particularly support or care about who you are), I never did drugs or anything like that. I was more concerned about how I was going to pass my classes and pay for school and the rest of my generalized anxiety disorder. I was never doing drugs, and by the time I was in a place both mentally and physically where I could have tried it, I was in a safe space where I could successfully weigh the pros and cons of the situation. I decided that it was better to leave the smoking to my friends who did that than to try it myself. For me, my rebel phase was more about my body and what I looked and felt like.
As soon as I could do so without consequences, whatever I could do to make my parents uncomfortable with who I was and what I looked like, I took that chance. I got my first facial piercing the moment I got out of high school, I dyed my hair strange colors as soon as physically possible after graduation, I got my lip pierced soon after and my first tattoo for the same reasons. Even now I pick my clothing not only based on what will make me feel good about myself, but what would have my parent’s telling me am not allowed to leave the house until I put on something more conservative. Even if I didn’t do the same thing she is doing, I did go through the same phase, and I probably felt similar things to what she is feeling.
I had been living in a space where I felt like I was confined to a role I didn’t fit, and as soon as I had the means and the space to do so, I changed something I could control so that even if I had to
continue living that role I could do so knowing I was living it my way.
Rebellion itself (be it mine or that of any historical or literary context) has always been about control;I wouldn’t doubt that her’s is too. If I am correct, she is doing this as a way to take back control of her life during a time when she feels like she doesn’t have control. The best thing for you to do in that situation, is to take a step back and just let her do it.
Let her feel in control of what happens to her, and don’t be high and mighty if things go south.
Don’t try to lecture her on safety, don’t try to insert yourself into the situation, don’t try to steer her decisions. It is scary, yeah, because when it comes to keeping her safe there really isn’t much you can do with a hands-off approach, but in the long run not only will it be better for her to have these mistakes and victories under her belt, but it will be better for your relationship too.
If she comes to you for help, hear her out like an adult. Listen to her problem, help her look into solutions, and if she picks a solution that you wouldn’t go with but ultimately won’t end up hurting herself or others, don’t try to shut her down or steer her away from it. Don’t treat her like a child. Treat her like a person who can make informed decisions, because that is what she is.
More likely than not she knows more about her situation than you think she does, and even that you do. She is bound to make mistakes, but that doesn’t mean that she is uninformed or doesn’t know what her situation is. You can be there to catch her if she falls even if she doesn’t want you there to help her every other step of the way.
Be a safety net, not a strait jacket, because that is what she needs right now.
