  1. Ah yes, that excuse. Just so you know, it's not true, Apple is sending those boards and devices to be shredded, not refurbed. https://www.washingtonpost.com/technology/2020/10/07/apple-geep-iphone-recycle-shred/
  2. At this point you're just being disingenuous. What he's pushing will help consumers, wether you like it or not.
  3. Ok, so Louis Rossmann 'lobbying' and pushing for legislation that benefits him and consumers is bad, but Apple pushing anti-consumer legislation that helps them isn't. Got it.
  4. And that's what 'rights-to-repair' bills are trying to prevent ; unrepairable devices. Genuine question, why are you against it ?
  5. FTC report on 'right to repair' ; https://www.theverge.com/2021/5/7/22424363/ftc-repair-restrictions-report-nixing-the-fix-smartphones-automakers The FTC report itself ; https://www.ftc.gov/system/files/documents/reports/nixing-fix-ftc-report-congress-repair-restrictions/nixing_the_fix_report_final_5521_630pm-508_002.pdf
  6. No it's not. Right to repair is to make sure companies don't prevent repairs that could otherwise be done by yourself, someone you know, or a 3rd party. Preventing the back camera to be replaced isn't consumer friendly, it's something that should be replaceable, but on some phone it's not even when the part is taken from an identical and working one. That's anti-consumer and only helps Apple selling new phones and filling landfills with electronics that should be repairable. If you're able to get a 3rd party alternator for your car, you should be able to do
  7. ah yes ... because Apple can never be wrong, and so Louis Rossmann is obviously evil and a scammer. Right ... back onto the topic ; Glad to see LMG donated $20k ! I gave $20 last weekend, it's not much, but anything that can help giving back rights to device owners !
  8. So you just don't know who he is then. May I suggest you look into it before saying nonsense ?
  9. * thread moved to the Peripherals section *
  10. @TypingCat Your thread was merged, please use the appropriate thread and section.
  11. so true ! BTW, here's a great summary of TNG ;
  12. It's a difficult choice IMO, Voyager was a great show but so was DS9, but both rank above TNG, IMHO (even though I'm a hardcore fan of TNG and started a 3rd rewatch of the whole series with my 9yo daughter ! )
  13. Forum = the whole website you're on. If you meant your thread, then members can't close or delete threads. There's also no need to delete threads once a solution was found as it would defeat the purpose of "knowledge database" a forum is supposed to be.
