Reports from customers using Apple’s new iBlob (I don’t do endorsement ;)) is apparently running into temperatures of 117*C according to Bloomberg. That’s “significantly hotter than the previous model.” What did Apple do when customers started complaining saying it’s “uncomfortable to use”…
They said “Call Applecare”. Just what you expect isn’t it? They have a ton of money, have started playing monopoly with Microsoft and now aren’t doing much to help customers when things start to go wrong.
This isn’t the first time they’ve had complaints like this either. The new iMac has been overheating as well, and people have been furious because it turns itself off. Well you’d expect that from a computer that doesn’t run fans.
Your average Mac user … all their claims of “it just works out of the box” … erm, so does a dell/hp/Acer/etc. (it’s only later when you start messing that they go wrong )… what they really mean is - I’m a rich idiot that can’t be ars*d to learn how to dig myself out of a hole, so I’ll use Apples “return to the manufacturer” for ANY little issue as a way to not bother, as it’s obvious I have more money than sense.
Don’t get me wrong … I quite like Macs, and OS X, it’s just the people that buy them that I have little in common with … to most of them a Mac is a fashion accessory that just happens to do computing too.
That’s all I hear when I talk to Mac users. It’s shiny and people say I should have one so I will spend a s*it load of money on something that I can’t take complete control of. as I said before, people are idiots.
Ah I forgot yanks measure in Fahrenheit. Stupid yanks, haha.
As much as I like Macs & OS X, I’ll never get one. I’ve used a Macbook before, as much as it was shiny, it was feckin’ slow. No lie. My laptop runs faster than it using Ubuntu, and that’s saying something, haha.
I’m just patiently waiting for Canonical to release the Ubuntu smartphone & Precise Pangolin.
