    Canadian border agents increasingly being nosey with tech

    If they did that with my stuff which are provided by work, I'd have to contact my company's global security team ASAP. No way anyone should be giving up their own details or passwords. Not unless they're being charged with a crime can/should they confiscate anything, and even then don't give them anything until you speak to council. What right do they have to essentially steal someone's property? I thought Canada of all places were better than that.
  3. I personally always use Cinema/theater mode; so my screen is always off until I tap, or press a button. Although I use to get 3-4 days; now 2-3 with 1 hour exercise daily, after the latest Watch up date on my Series 3.
  4. Shame! Yeah just use the shell if you can for some mod then, otherwise recycle.
  5. Make sure it works, sells for a good return on the second and "collectors" market.
  6. Fire it up, and check! The IBM Macs were great!
  7. Possibly gotta remember prior to 2006 those are IBM PowerPC Macs; now those are some classics. Like I said before, I wonder who's still using those, and haven't already replaced an adapter/plug yet. Even the few first gen X86 Intel macs following 2006-2010. All well outside of any reasonable repair options, outside of scrounging second hand parts now I'd say. I really hope there's still a bunch of Apple Powerbooks out there getting use! Those were real tanks. Only issue for modern use I'd say would be browser compatibility.
  8. These aren't USB chargers though; they're for the ones that plug into power bricks. The articles point out the USB ones have no issues. Possibly, but I've rarely heard of any class actions in Ireland and the UK; especially not for something as disposable as a plug. Then again, you never know how people will react when they see a possibility for a cash cow like Apple. Might get a whole £10 after a class action; or get a free replacement which costs more usually.
  9. Depends on failure rates, and how many reported it. Usually over here in Ireland, and the UK; if a plug goes it's either the fuse, or you just get a cheap replacement. Especially since these were mostly in the travel kits; we don't know how many people got those. Usually when folks travel they get a plug/replacement in an Airport and after travelling when do you get to re-use a small specific plug? So considering the statement, that it can get damaged and cause shocks; well that applies to all plugs; and was it accidental damage ( never step on these plugs lego is nothing compared to these ), or have you plugged and unplugged the head from the charging brick so many times it's worn out? If it's the latter, well that could take years to wear out, and get the type of damage that might shock. I can tell you right now though, any other tech manufacturer here would tell you to bugger off if you came to them with a plug that old. It's well outside of the 6 years consumer law for defects alone. So the fact there's an free exchange program is actually really good. ( does make me wonder what system some folks are still keeping/using from that long ago also. )
  10. These are some very old plugs also 2003-2010 is ancient in tech. Glad they're getting replaced and it's been put out there. From what I recall these plugs, and most UK ones also have a fuse in them, to help prevent shorts, and overvolts.
  11. It's never been about the revenue share, as Discord offer a 90% share, and barely anyone supports it. Developers know of Discord, and if it was all about revenue split they'd be praising it all over. The difference is the cash lump sum Epic gives them as an incentive; despite having even less features, and a worse revenue split than Discord.
  12. So it's actually out in 2020 for me? Okay so. I'll have it along with all the other Borderlands games together, so my friends and, I can play together with SteamPlay.
  13. I do anyway, as it always causing hitching in some games for me, with multi-monitor and some sites like Netflix open.

    AirPower is dead

    There's already adapters for those. Just miss-matching the launch items is worse. Now the line is even more broken up; instead of slowly shifting to the proper universal connector.

    AirPower is dead

    If they put USB C on everything bar the Watch I'd be happy. Damn annoying the launched the iPhone Xs series with lighting, when the iPad Pros from the same launch went USB C.
