asdasd said:The report on the face of it doesnt make a lot of sense. It is surely harder to make a larger screen work perfectly than a smaller one. For each batch of produced OLED sheets, any defect that would make a larger display unusable can be worked around for a number of smaller displays. If a pixel or pixels are stuck, or not bright enough, or not functioning in the centre of a ~50 inch diameter sheet it makes that sheet unusable for a 50 inch TV but usable for smaller displays. Dozens of iPhones could be cut from it.
Of course the iPhone X batches may be different but thats not elaborated here. In terms of general OLED displays LG is on par, or better than, Samsung these days.

Do their calls to you go to your voicemail, or to a carrier message? What about iMessages and SMS, does it tell them anything or do they just assume you got it and never replied?
RealZoeSummers said:Why haven’t you dealt with the huge inconvenience that stems from Apples ignorant approach? That to block people, you have to make a contact for them, thus filling your contact page with randoms you don’t want or know anything about?
i get over 1000 spam every 3 days, and half a dozen or more iMessages and FaceTimes from randoms who are ‘finding’ me because they’re too stupid to know they’re calling the wrong person.
yet Apple makes me add each one as a contact in order to block it, but I’m still left with them in my bloated contacts list.
Alternatively, the silent ringtone for randoms, and a regular one for your actual contacts, like we spoke about in the tail end of the article.

So down the line when you want to upgrade you can't even get extra use out of the machine by using is as a 2nd monitor. This is a rather deliberate choice by Apple to create Forced Obsolescence. It's rather shady and definitely Anti-Consumer. This issue he's now having has the same smell of even more Forced Obsolescence.
Attacking someones credentials as opposed to the content of what was said is a terribly weak way to try and put forth an argument. I assume you have never made a single comment about any product on earth that you have never owned, that seems just a little unlikely.
Linus' critique was that a display input would allow you to use it as a standalone monitor once you've moved from from the current internals. You could use it as a 2nd monitor to go with your new IMac for example.
As for your "do realise that people can have differing opinions" comment, I'll let Patton Oswalt explain that to you…
Standard iMacs can be used in Target Display Mode which is nice when you want an extra monitor or a larger one for a MacBook/MacBook Pro or when the iMac becomes performance obsolete and you get a newer faster one. The iMac Pro does not support this, I think this is a valid complaint about the iMac Pro.
And if you must attack my credibility on the matter I have worked in the IT industry for many years, also as a support contractor, and administered networks with hundreds of iMacs and MacBook Pros and had to repair them and diagnose issues with the devices. TDM is useful for this for this process, as I hope you know.
Most of the Mac users at my current work place have iMacs and MacBook Pros and use the iMac as a secondary screen all the time.
It's a feature I have used a lot as well, this is a legitimate complaint as people have used it and now they cannot. I'd appreciate if you'd tone it down a bit.
