As far as hardware is concerned, I've never seen a piece of crap put out by Apple. Now, I can't say the same for Samsung, Motorola, or HTC.
Seems to me that Foxconn, not the Chinese people, are the problem. If they treated their workers better, made them work reasonable shifts, and paid better, maybe this wouldn't be an issue.
Yes, one of the responses at iFixYouri claims he has a friend that is an industrial design specialist and says it's evident it was struck by a hammer, as noted in the near perfectly round shape where the damage starts from in the upper right hand corner. I'm pretty sure that's what probably happened, on top of a few other points provided by others: no internals, glass layers not fused together... It's a complete fraud...
Yep, what a ripoff! I was considering moving from Verizon to AT&T just to get an iPhone, but now I'm definitely going to stick with Verizon and hope they get the iPhone soon. If not, Droid here I come... This just proves there's no real competition out there in the mobile wireless market. It's Verizon, AT&T, and pretty much all the non-players in the market who don't have enough infrustructure - and we all suffer.
Isn't this kind of crap why Apple invented the iPhone in the first place? Phones were antiquated in a short amount of time, left supportless, and often were crappily made? Apple's fix was to come up with their own phone - one that had a longer support life and was well made. I think they succeeded. Apple's central control is something that works, and works well. Leave it to the OEM and the consumer to update, and not the carrier. Verizon is one of the worst in terms of...
Look at it this way: As long as you're willing to use your own, why would the company be willing to fork over money to buy the employees one? You see where this goes? Just a couple of employees willing to use their own Macs start a trend, where the employer now expects everyone to use their own home computers and not have to buy any. This effectively gives you a pay cut, just like as if you had a company car that gets taken away and you're now required to use your own....
So, am I getting this right? It's okay, only if you provide the Mac? No thanks... In other words, they want to cut IT costs by you providing your own support for you own computer, and they no longer have to provide you with the computer to do your job. So, in essence, you just got more work and a pay cut, because you're providing your own $1000 to $2500 computer. What a bargain! Is Windows really that bad that you would want to do something like this? Not for me...
I saw something on television a couple years ago, where they said that Nike pays Michael Jordon more money per year than they pay their entire group of factory workers their sweatshop wages. Things are definitely out of whack!
Ummmm, no! What has ruined the PC gaming market is Microsoft's entry into the game console market: The XBox and XBox 360. Consoles have always been around, but the current crop of high powered consoles combined with 1080P HDTV's and Microsoft's ignoring of PC gaming to foster the XBox has all but ruined the PC gaming market.
This is a very good, and probably accurate post. However, I think Apple's motives are more complicated. First, Flash has long been a source of security problems. If the scenario you suggested was to happen, we'd all open our iPod Touches, iPhones, and iPads to security concerns instead of the scrutinized safe haven that is the App Store. Second, Flash is slow, unreliable, and downright buggy. Adobe has simply become the new Microsoft. Their quality is not as good as it...
