Apple REFUSED to Fix our iMac Pro

Recommended Posts

Make a Hackintosh (beige box that runs OSX) to recover the Data that you can't access, or Drop some money and get a display port monitor and use external video to verify that the board is shot.  then make a hack to recover data.

 

PS having watched many of your videos, I am sure that you have the gear laying around to make a hack that will recover your stuff.

Well....

In the automotive industry, a car manufacturer needs to provide support to a vehicle (parts, etc) for a minimum of X amount of years. So if Fiat sold a Fiat vehicle in america, It couldn't just bail out and stop supporting the vehicle as they wished. I know this because I met the former owner of Central Ford in Framingham Massachusetts, and we used to talk alot. I don't see why he'd lie to me. I tried to search online for the specific regulation to give you the exact amount of years but I couldn't find it anywhere.

 

I am assuming, the computer industry is probably regulated as well... Or not. I wonder what would happen if you filed a small claim in court vs apple. Not only I believe their action of not supporting your computer is proof of horrible customer support + a reason not to buy anything from apple. They want you to have to buy a brand new computer. Really ? This is unethical.

 

I am glad I am anti apple. I use Windows, Linux, Unix, Android, and even MSDOS (for playing worms), but I was never an apple guy. People call me almost everyday to replace their Iphone screens, apple notebook screens, etc etc, and I am proud to say "Sorry, I don't work with Apple". !!!!! :D

 

Good luck with your case, leave us updated. And if you do take it to court, please know that even though there will be signs saying you cant record, you can! It's your constitutional right !

 

Thank you.

Funny thing was, Apple actually emailed on 20th April about their new "GiveBack" program...

 

Like anybody is going to trust a company who won't fix their stuff - now they want users to trade-in their old devices?!

This policy likely violates the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act of 1975.  I read in multiple locations that Canadians can cite Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act of 1975 in civil court due to it being based on common law.  Perhaps they should sue them and offer a compromise in which Apple will sell the parts in exchange for Linus and his colleagues signing a liability waiver that way Linus can make a video of them fixing it and Apple will be off the hook if the repair turns catastrophic.
