What mystifies me is that the airlines are not saying (or the news media isn't reporting) what DATA they are seeing to warrant the delays. It sounds like emotion and paranoia is guiding their actions and sadly, this has the desired effect on the public and elected officials.
On the flip side, the telcos have DATA (actual test results) showing that little or no concern about interference exists.

I picked up my friends 2nd generation SE and it was so light, then and had Touch ID.
much nicer then the mini which is HUGE and feels slow in comparisonI find it near impossible to believe that a 12 Mini feels slower than an SE.

The reason Apple wants to force every worker into being on site for a certain percentage of time probably has a lot more to do with making sure their insanely expensive building/campus isn’t sitting empty, because that would be embarrassing for a company that cares a lot about their image.
It’s been noted that people don’t like working there. Open floor plans and glass walls/doors suck for actual humans and productivity. The main building is like the Powermac G4 cube and the trashcan Mac Pro: all form; poorly-considered function.
Then there’s the basic fact that the 40-hour workweek and officespace culture is just plain unhealthy.
Instead of being bitter about what you see as “entitled” employees who should get shit on just the same as you do, maybe think about trying to raise the bar for EVERYONE (which includes yourselves). Stop licking the corporate boot and acting like you’re living vicariously through the boot wearers.
Also, I suppose you've been to Apple Park since you commented on it.... I found it a very welcoming environment in which to work. There are many places where employees can run into each other, just like Jobs envisioned. And the amenities are second to none... it's a great place to work. I can't believe our opinions of the same place are so different.

I know nothing is truly "free" but in practical, dollar-and-cents many customers with a 3-year-old phone can trade it in (and re-up for 2.5 years) and get a free high-end phone. That'll be great for Apple's bottom line.
