Aside from falling asleep halfway through (not unusual), I had 1 big complaint. Why is it every “epic story” is full of people with British accents? Did the UK conquer the universe and leave everyone else behind? Star Wars, Dune, so many shows, so many English accents. I know, it’s a small quibble, but it bothers me enough to pull me out of immersion.
About two years ago, the battery in my iPhone 5 started to puff. I contacted Apple to find out how to replace it, and the official word was "we will swap your phone for a refurbished one". Now, I've never had a good experience with any refurbished item, so I politely refused. I then contacted my local Apple store and was told to bring it in and after about an hour and $90 I would have a new battery, so phone in hand, I headed off on the long drive to the store. After arriving, I was told that it would also be a phone replacement with a refurbished device, and the hour wait and $90 charge was to move my data over to the new device. I didn't do it.
I wonder what the process now would be with trying to get the battery "replaced" in my iPhone 6.
