  • 'Save the Internet' bill seeks to reinstate net neutrality regulations

    The repeal of net neutrality two years ago was supposed to kill the internet. But as I type it appears alive. What needs saving exactly?  Who will we be protected from?  It is interesting that people think companies should build the internet for billions and billions of dollars and not profit from their risk.  Should we save search from google?  Or save social media from facebook?  Perhaps save the iPhone from Apple?

  • Here we go again: Apple's iPhone battery service terms igniting complaints from users

    I took an iPhone for the battery replacement.  When I returned to pick it up I was told that when removing the battery the tabs broke off and it was no longer safe to complete the repair.  The solution was they gave me a replacement iPhone.  Some of Apple's concern over accepting damaged phones come from safety concerns.  I recall a story about a fire starting in an apple store a while back while a battery was being replaced.  Just because a local repair shop is willing to take a risk does not mean that a 800B company that is taking care of its employees and customers, and certain to be sued should take the same risk.  Perhaps that was not the situation in this case? but everything seems to be generalized.

  • Apple bringing in more labor to cope with surge of iPhone battery replacements

    It is very logical to pay 30$ to replace the battery in a two or three year old iPhone no matter the condition of the current battery.  Batteries are a consumable part, with a finite lifespan. If you plan to keep your phone for a year or two get a new battery.  Why delay an pay $80 later?  

    If your tires are rated for 40,000 miles, you have put 30,000 on them, it would make sense to replace them if the price was discounted by 60%.  You get full tread and would get another 40,000 miles.  Same logic holds true for this battery deal.  And it is a deal.
