Apple is notorious for removing threads. Two threads I started were removed. The first one was about their lack of updating the Mac Mini. Someone brought up Hackintosh. I mentioned that there were people doing it with the then new Dell 101 netbooks. That is all that I wrote and the thread was deleted. Nobody on the thread was promoting doing it or saying they did it. Just the mention that some people were doing it caused the tread to be deleted.
The next one was about defective Mac Book batteries that were made by Sony and the big recall that happened in 2007. I was saying that the Apple battery in my 2008 Mac Book was made by Sony and was doing the exact same thing yet Apple wasn't willing to exchange the battery. That tread got deleted too.
Both of these were acts that really made me angry and very disappointed at the Apple company. Until then I had real appreciation for the product and I believed the hype about their great customer service. Then I experienced the actual fact that if something is really wrong with a design, Apple will do all it can to sweep it under the rug to avoid a massive recall. Apple refused to do anything about my defective battery.
I reported the defect to the Consumer Product Safety Commission because such battery problems were linked to some fires. Months later Apple calls me about this report. They asked me to take it to an approved repair shop. The battery was examined and photographed. Within a few days I had a new battery. It seemed that only government intervention got Apple to replace that dangerous defective battery. They wouldn't do it on their own to protect me. They only did it to avoid governmental problems.
The great progressive company known as Apple is really a giant behemoth that will do only what it feels is best for the bottom line and they are very strongly into censorship on their forums. This proved to me that Apple is a two faced entity. Don't believe the sweetness and light image. It isn't true.
