RIP Philo

Fuck China and Apple. They deserve each other.

This is complete bullshit from Apple to help them justify their completely locking of devices if repaired by anyone other than Apple.

They refused to comment on yesterday's CBC report beyond saying that only genuine Apple parts and repairs are acceptable.

So this is their full response. Irrelevant propaganda.

Apple is also lying. They claim here thieves stole thousands of iPhones, removed all the internal parts and replaced them with "gum wrappers", returned them to Apple for repairs, Apple swapped them out for a good phone, then they sold those phones.

None of that happened. Not even once.

Here's what happens when you bring a stolen iPhone to a Apple Genius Bar for repairs:

"Thank you sir. Please wait, this will take an hour." [On phone in back] "Hello police, come at once. An iPhone reported stolen is here with the thief."

Here's what happens when you bring a iPhone to a Apple Genius Bar for repairs and it's full of gum wrappers and no parts:

"Please wait as we run some diagnostics in the back." ["Hello police, come at once..."] "This phone is full of gum wrappers. That invalidates the warranty. It's also fraud. Officer Friendly here will now be taking custody."

Apple claims they don't have time to disassemble the iPhones to check for gum wrappers.

That's funny stuff. You can take an iPhone with a cracked screen to any of a thousand stalls in Shenzhen where a 90 yr old woman will disassemble your iPhone, replace the screen and battery for good measure, and put it back together in abut 90 seconds, and charge you $10 for the repair.

Louis Rossmann makes the point that in his experience with most iphones with broken screens, it's only the top cover glass that is broken. The touch sensitive layer and the display layer usually still work fine. Replacing just the glass is all that is necessary and is very quick and cheap.

Apple of course will charge you for whole assembly to be replaced.

Except in China when you call a policeman over, he will say "This is China and its people are honest. Are you accusing Chinese of cheating? Are you a racist? Are you against rice eaters?"

Apple employee: No sir! We have no problem with this customer. We will fix his phone pronto. Our Gay Ass Tim Cook CEO says that we will kiss China ass anytime it asks.

Apple should never appoint a gay guy to its CEO job. He has no balls literally.
