Plus if you have your battery replaced you will lose the water resistance the device had because the seal is then broken.
Wow. If that’s what they do with the “failed” iPhone 8 what is the X going to do in this quarter? I imagine the only limitation will be how many they can make and whether they register the sale when they are ordered or when they are shipped. If the latter, then this big bump will be smoothed over the next 2 quarters so it will be a weird super cycle (which might make FY19 hard to match 18).

So so the concept that the internet is free and advertising is what allows it to be free is bullshit. When a website like AI, give your free access, it's because it's relying on the advertising to make up for the free access, to that their site only.
Amazon on the other hand, has a free account and a pay for account. If I have a non prime account advertise the shit out of me. But if I have a prime account, that should not happen. All searches should be anonymous.

I was was a fan of Techpinions but as a niche site they decided to put up a paywall rather than rely on ads. $10 a month is to much for casual interest for one website for me but I assume it is working for them.
It is just ignorant of the underlying business model of the web to wish for an ad-blocked world.
