I am careful with a £15 cable, much more than I should have to be. You make assumptions that everyone who owns a cable treats it with disrespect. You're very good at making assumptions, but I see few facts that prove the quality of Apple cables. Though if you can't see that if every cable crossing your desk is mangled, then there is an engineering/design problem, there's little hope that you're able to see if something is quality or not.I don't think I've ever had a...
No, but they do make their own plastic MacBook cases and have recalled them.https://www.apple.com/support/macbook-bottomcase/They've recalled iPhone 5 buttons that've stopped working they make thosehttps://www.apple.com/support/iphone5-sleepwakebutton/They've recalled power adapters and they make thosehttps://www.apple.com/support/usbadapter/exchangeprogram/Those are active exchange programs, there have been plenty more in the past, like iBook logic board failure, MagSafe...
Ah, then why does the cable have just 1 star with 1000 reviews? With virtually every review saying it's frayed at the strain relief? I make electronics for a living, I think I know how to handle them thanks. This is just really bad design, which you are blindly defending. When thousands of people are having the same identical problem, it's not a usage problem, its a design problem, just as Trumptman said. There was a recall on iMacs for a HDD failure, was that the user's...
What a nice customer assistant you must be, I bet everyone's so happy to come to your store.My lightning cable broke after two months, and it was fixed in position in my car. Frayed at the strain relief as usual with Apple cables. It would be impossible to mistreat it in its fixed location, the only movement it gets is plugging in and unplugging from the phone, certainly no teeth come near it..! Apple doesn't seem to understand what "strain relief" means, since their...
Apple isn't perfect, as evidenced by their terrible cable build quality.The cables always fray at the end partly due to inadequate strain relief, and due to Greenpeace's constant attemps to make Apple "greener": non-PVC cables are crap.Non-PVC plastic just doesn't have the flexibility, and so Apple makes their cables out of foamed plastic. Eventually the non-flexible plastic weakens and cracks. That just doesn't happen with PVC. So instead of keeping one cable for years, I...
Hold on, you quoted that "inductive resonant charging ... starts as soon as you press it against the base of the PC", meaning the resonant devices need to be touching. Then you say inductively powered devices need to be touching, resonant don't (in your first post), then you say Apple's invention allows resonantly powered devices to work at a distance. What is it?This patent is actually about combining multiple weak sources of power from inductive/resonant sources into one...
Care to provide a reason why? Or perhaps an answer as to why Apple should have this patent?
I'm not sure whether I should make the effort to reply since you have one post and obviously didn't visit the links I posted, but I'll take the bait.NFC/RFID and "resonant charging" use exactly the same principles. You obviously have no idea how resonant charging nor RFID work, perhaps you should research before making yourself look a tad foolish. Inductive and resonant charging are identical. By definition, a resonant circuit induces current in nearby coils.One of the...
Since the patent (along with all others) is viewable in its entirety there's nothing that can be hidden really, there (shouldn't) be more information than that which is publicly viewable.This is true, they need to be the same frequency to charge/communicate. These kind of tuned circuits can emit harmonics though which may interfere with pacemakers unless the harmonics are damped. There aren't really any standards used in non-RFID equipment for inductive power transfer, so...
This is just RFID/NFC, except the receiver is attached to a keyboard or mouse instead of a payment terminal or RFID tag. Inductive power transfer has been known about for nearly a century. Not sure how this is new or how it can be patented, especially since there are inductively powered mice and keyboards already... http://www.engadget.com/2012/06/05/intel-inductive-charging-keyboard/ http://www.gizmag.com/mobee-magic-bar-induction-charger/18384/
