Wow, MIND-BLOWING: Florida Man gets an earful from 'exploding Apple AirPod' bud

el kabong

Hilarious????

It's an absolute truth!

el kabong

He inserted it the wrong way that's for sure

Had he inserted the AirPod properly, using the Apple approved way, nothing wrong would have happened.

He inserted it the wrong way

Had he inserted the AirPod properly, using the Apple approved way, nothing wrong would have happened. But no, he had to do it wrong.

It's all his fault, got what he deserved. Apple is not at fault.

Re: Got my copy!

I just did that too, thanks for the savvy advice Jake. It is always clever to do these things anonymously as you very opportunely mentioned. God knows what could happen if those bastards found out our real identities.

Re: I don't get it.

People with too much time on their hands and nothing of value to do with it. There are plenty of them actually, just look around.

Somewhere in the article it reads

(...)"sits in between Public Access Television and real television"(...)

I'm wodering, what the fug is "real television" supposed to mean? I mean, come on, be real, TV, ALL TV, is as hot steaming pile of manure.

Just like youtube, television is pure garbage.

PERIOD!

They prefer to drill tight holes in wet soap bars and slide their cocks inside, they do it quite often, for fun. Perhaps one they they will post some videos showing us how it's done.

I'm always amazed by the rapid fire of emotional negative reactions I manage to get just by pointing out a few simple undeniable truths.

There's nothing terrible in JavaScript, nothing at all. Only someone who's falling behind will think there is.

Re: Fools and their money...

Come on guys cool down it's just a stupid gadget but you are dealing with it as if it was some kind of deity, don't make my observations a personal matter to you. Apple does not care about you as little as 1/1000th as you seem to care about them. You're blowing things out of proportion.

Re: Fools and their money...

Why the downvote? Touched a nerve?

el kabong

Re: Fools and their money...

I beg to disagree, to me that sour grapes analogy appears totally inadequate. I perceive the iphone more as an accessory for fashionistas than anything else. Sometimes I suspect that most of those fashionistas are not even real fashionistas, quite often they look more like fashionista wannabes or something of that sort, I am not totally sure what they really are.

Re: Where is Susannah York?

Yes, believable. And accurate too!

el kabong

Is anyone surprised? I read a fair share of the articles this piece links to as they were being published and I remember wondering at the time if people were really that stupid for taking all that crap in or if they were just pretending to be stupid only to fool me. Well, they were not trying to fool me, sadly. I wish they were.

Pixel-style display woes on your shiny new X? Perfectly normal, says Apple

el kabong

Apple did their part they tried their best with that phone, is it that hard for you to do your part? Just pretend there's no burn-in, m'kay?

OK, we admit it. Under the hood, the iPhone X is a feat of engineering

Re: 2208x1242 panel downscaled to 1080x1920

They first rotated the panel 90º then downscaled. This is Apple you know, they like to do things differently.

Hey, you know why it's called the iPhone X? When you see Apple's repair bill, your response will be X-rated

Those "lowest common denominators," as you call them, are to apple sheep as numerical lowest common denominators are to the factorization of numbers and the search for primes, they help weed out the garbage.

Get what i mean? You claim to be well educated so as gesture of goodwill I'll be taking your word as trustworthy and assume you'll be able to get it.

el kabong

The harsh criticism of Apple I'm seeing here might actually be fair, it might be if it was not totally wrong.

Somehow all of those haters forget to mention that Apple will be giving all their sheep, pardon, all their customers the unique opportunity of getting a full bucket of rectal lube at a discounted retail price to be announced soon. A full bucket of iLube can be theirs to help them ease the pain, a bucket of iLube with rounded corners and all the shebang at a discount, it's a steal!.

Apple haters just keep failing to get the full picture, as always. Haters will keep hating.

We've entered a logarithmic growth era, accept that fact and you'll be fine.

And be glad, because eventually a permanent negative growth era will set in and it will hurt. It will hurt real bad.

el kabong

I suppose we've got to settle for logarithmic growth then, now that the exponential one is not longer available.

I'm well aware of it, but they were not at fault in that case, others were. Estonians managed to hold their own quite well in that particular case.

It seems to me that Estonia is fairly strong and quite able on the technical side, as in almost other country it's the political side that causes them to faulter.

el kabong

Well, with this blunder Estonians provide us with definitive proof that they are not nearly half as tech savvy as they are purported to be. Estonia just disappointed me, I'm sad!

The only valid reason for your hatred of Microsoft is you never having tried Visual Basic or its little brother VBScript. Give them a try and you'll become a Microsoft convert in no time.

Gray hat hackers leaning heavily on the darker side that's what they are, those people hack web user's machines with their ads and put users in danger, no less.

I'm not sure they are aware of the consequences or if they care at all. Most certainly they just don't care, I'm afraid.

Re: Assuming They Don't Post Anonymously

In a few cases downvoting merely reflects how poor some people are at dealing with sarcasm.

Other times downvoting is just an easy way to punish someone who dared to have a different opinion.

Sometimes it just tells how much of a cunt the downvoter is.

In this case downvoting your post is just a mere exercise in common sense.

Re: The guy's a bigot

Google's pay gap tells the real story, google's pay gap should tell you what values google's boss really cares about.

Re: The guy's a bigot

Maybe that bigot learned to be a a bigot from his bigoted boss, Pichai who runs a bigoted corportation that does not tolerate dissent, knows?

el kabong

How much does google value diversity? The answer is in the pay gap, google's pay gap tells a story that is at odds with official line of the company.

Do as I say don't do as I do.

Discrimination against groups of people is always negative, there is no such thing as positive discrimination.
