  1. Sigh… The application process that guy went through reminds me of when the Obama administration decided that the government should take over student loans. My sister had the nicest and most advanced Aesthetics college in the U.S. 8,000 sq feet. 10 private facial rooms, 3 huge classrooms, 2 offices, an enormous kitchen, a full wet room with medical grade equipment. The works. She leased half of a Michael's space and paid for the build-out. It was a luxury day spa up front and a school and wholesale distribution center in the back when she was done.

    So the government took over student loans, and she filled out the required paperwork to get the student loan money that had been approved by them. And then they changed the rules. So she met THOSE requirements, and then they changed the rules again. She met THOSE requirements, and then they changed the rules again, added more forms and requirements. She spent months hoop-jumping through red tape to get tuition money for students who had already graduated and were in their careers.

    They were into her for $650,000 in back-owed tuition payments before she finally got paid. Her rent was $5,000 a month, and she was having to pay for teacher salaries, inventory, insurance, all of her overhead and costs of doing business out of her own pocket to keep the school going. She was accredited. Her school was so remarkable, women from the Middle East were coming to attend. She even offered self defense classes on Sundays to help students become a little more empowered. The government pulled an Apple on her, along with countless other trade schools, and she was forced to close it. My sister is really gifted in taking some of the hardest girls and settling them down and helping them find a good career, a good life. She is a great mentor, and I saw students do a 180 after working with her.

    When she closed, under the lease she wasn't allowed to remove anything that had been nailed down. Even if she was the one who nailed it down. That meant her medical grade jacuzzi, her $10K custom built front reception desk, and who knows what else.

    Apple is right up there with Common Core, Monsanto and any other organization that frustrates the process of growing a business that would do anything to make us less dependent on someone else.

  2. That's why I switched to generic (not spoiling brand) Android phones. In our market (Central Europe) is is simply better and extremely cheaper to maintain and repair most of those brands. You want to repair directly at the brand store, you can have it, you want to perform quick part swap at independent shop, you go for it. No one plays this kind of bs Apple is pulling on their customers and not only. Anyone that will not comply with agility and swiftness of local repair market may be surprised with their revenue turnover

  3. Well that really increases the market on completely non-functional iphones. You could leave it in traffic being run over for half an hour and as long as you could read the numbers on the battery and screen, a literally worthless device is still worth a minimum of about a hundred dollars.

    Actually, a fully functional iphone with aftermarket parts somehow has negative value in the Apple IRP, which I guess is the whole point. I wonder if anyone has gotten ios to work on a 3rd party device like they have with macos.
