I don't think so i have never heard of such treatment by a company. Even if the story is half true it is very scary.

Chill out, I feel sorry for the man, But I think he overreacted when he jumped, Apple would have just replaced the lost phone.

Come on guys - you let this entire thread get derailed by a low-grade, juvenile troll. Show some restraint and quit engaging him.

Without correction, the lies stand as accepted truth to guests of the forum and users that don't know better.

 

And since lies aren't a bannable offense…

Well refute once and move on then. Not that anyone was likely to believe his badly written nonsense; anonymity is all well and good, but still doesn't disguise an uneducated kid pretending to be an industry professional.

No, the weak person committed suicide. Shit happens.

What's that got to do with anything? One person deciding to off themselves because of a lost phone is none of my damn business (or yours), not only because we don't know the exact circumstances, and we don't know what was going on in his head, but also because the only person who is accountable for that act is the victim. Whether they felt "compelled" to do it for one reason or another is for the realm of psychology to determine. The circumstances are not only too nebulous for you or I to render a judgment on, but it is galactically preposterous to lay the blame at Apple's doorstep (or on anyone else's, for that matter.)

 

You're bringing this (non)issue up because you are REACHING. You are reaching because people like you have been outed. Trolls do that kind of reaching. Some nebulous, hazy human rights issue used as a last resort argument because you have nothing else left in the tank with which to attack Apple, who has been completely vindicated not only in the court of public opinion but also *legally* as well.]

 

And as for human rights at Foxconn, Apple's done more good in that area than any other company (especially the ones no one cares to talk about.)  How about pointing a finger at Microsoft's factories in China? After all, MS is a CONVICTED MONOPOLY ABUSER. What else are they capable of?

http://www.businessinsider.com/microsoft-slammed-over-child-labor-accusations-2010-4?op=1

 

Oh well. But we only like to talk about Apple, because they're the ones who get the glory in the market. 

 

How about pointing a finger at Samsung while you're at it:

 

http://news.yahoo.com/blogs/technology-blog/report-paints-dire-picture-samsung-factory-working-conditions-030044518.html

 

And they're loser copycats *on top* of all that. 

 

Meanwhile . . .

I wonder how few people saw my explosive emoji post in the main Samsung trial thread… 

 

FYI, I'm on Mountain Lion, but normally use Firefox, and as a result the emoji wasn't visible. Had to go to Safari to appreciate your post. (And I do mean appreciate!)

Oh, well, that's a crock! What's the point of having the character support if third parties can ignore it?! Thanks for the insight, though.

Apple are very good at controlling people. That's what they do they lock people in. Stop them thinking. Apple in the the industry make a very narrow product range. They control this range very well. It is of excellent quality but if you break down there hardware is behind the curve. Slower processor's less memory, smaller HD's etc. But they tell there "followers" people you don't know better that this the best that they can get.

The iphone despite what you way is very similar to the LG phone. There was plenty of tablets before the Ipad some even had the same 'unique" shape.

Again you use the phase race to the bottom. These phones have larger better screens, faster processor's and work on a faster network. It seem's like a weird race to the bottom. Apple make great products but i like thinking for myself. 

When apple destoys companies with there neighbour judges that they help fund in local taxes. And a jury they that may employ. When they are the last ones standing see what happen's then.

 

I think if I read one more of your posts I'll officially become brain-dead. The level of idiocy is hard to quantify. Besides the mountain of lies/untruths/garbage in your posts, try to work on your appalling grammar before posting again.

lol it's like the little engine that couldn't, its like watching a wounded animal trying to crawl across a busy highway just to get a piece of food on the other side that is really only a pinecone.

 

Such a laughable train wreck that I don't think there are words to describe its level of depraved masochistic attention seeking. I want to ignore its pathetic psychotic, paranoid screams but I just can't look away because its sheer ignorance coupeled with its impossible plight makes me laugh despite how otherwise horrific its situation is.

 

Its like something that deserves a mercy kill but watching it suffer is just far more entertaining.

 

Poor little angry troll is angry....

You're arguing in circles. You should ignore Apple's under-$1000 computer because it's their only sub-$1000 computer? You're not making sense.

 

One (and only one) sub $1000 computer that isn't a notebook. 

 

It's not exactly ideal for market-share building. The Mini is interesting and certainly affordable, but it isn't a well-positioned product in the current market.

Maybe, maybe not.


That still doesn't explain the logic behind excluding it when listing Apple's price range.

The people who think Samsung/Motorola/HTC/Nokia should be allowed to copy Apple are probably the same people who sided with Creative when Apple had to pay out 200m to them over that interface patent.

They change their stance on copying based on their hate for Apple.

Why you guys are replying to this PK (whatever..)? Isn't it obvious he/she is showing his friends (probably in a 3rd grade) that he/she can make some mature guys dance?

 

Do you really think you can awake somebody who is really awake and pretending to be asleep?

Apple outsourced all there manufacturing to sweat shops who throw workers off the roof of there building's for misbehaving.  

So great for Apple let them destroy the industry let them steal other people's ideas. And let the isheep think this ok becasue they have been brainwashed, conditioned , controlled by Apple

I really feel sorry for you.  I can feel your anger.  Tough way to get through life.  Its tough when the brain cannot do its job.

The facts have a pro-Apple bias already. That makes things easier.

Shame you never bothered to install a spelling, punctuation and grammar checker on your $3000 wonder-machine......

Why are we responding to this guy? I almost want to see him write "South Korea 5ting!" or whatever that guy was saying to which I think he meant "South Korea Fighting"...but apparently didn't realize there's no "v" in the English version of the word "fighting".

It would be nice if the forum listed the number of folks above 100 posts that has ignored a poster in their profile.

Whether or not ignore someone too...and eventually a setting in the forum to simply auto-ignore posts by anyone already blocked by a large number of regulars.

Ah, I see. I'm in the opposite camp. I think we should judge whether to ignore (just visually) what someone says based on your interpretation thereof, not others'.

 

We had a feature like that with vBulletin. Shame it's not in Huddler, too.

Nice idea. I can see where that would give an indication to newer members and visitors, that the posters comments are not mainstream. No censoring would be done, but it would allow the longtime members to voice a general disagreement to what the poster says. As it stands now, when I choose to block a troll, I let the trolls posts go unchallenged. Your method may not be perfect, but it's a nice place to start.

there is forum software that allows downgrading posts so the comment is greyed out (rather than blocked)

Ooh, what about a color scale? And I'm just throwing ideas around here; this can't actually be implemented. 

 

More legitimate users have their name column background fade up through the greens (though blue would probably look better), richer green being more legitimate. Trolls would have their name column background fade down through the reds. New users would have the blue-grey we see right now.
