Apple MacBook butterfly keyboards 'defective', 'prone to fail' – lawsuit


I've not experienced any problems with my keyboard getting stuck on anything, and I'm not the cleanest of gents, also share a flat with a cat with a shedding problem.

I get the feeling I'm in a minority when I say I really like the feel of the butterfly switch keyboards, more than any other. I've had 4 gen of macbooks and this is my favourite keyboard by far. I have next to me now and older macbook with squishier keys and it doesn't feel any near as nice as the magic keyboard I have plugged into it.

Don't forget setting up your tonearm to the correct weight and tracking force specified by the manufacture of your cartridge, after first finding a compatible cartridge.

Then buying a cartridge, assuming you have a turntable they still make them for, pick out from loads of different models with rapidly fluctuating prices between models with incomprehensible advantages/disadvantages.

And if you don't set it up right, you'll shorten the life of your records.

There's also the factor that as housing is seen as investment, they can be bought as just that, and left empty, which happens in the high end markets, having a effect top down. If you're rich, you can buy bigger house than you need, just to get a bigger return, further decreasing room.

And to those that say, oh, anyone ca can still afford a house, that wasn't my point, people can still have housing, they just have less money left over to spend on other things than that of previous generations. Proving with numbers that buying a house is theoretically possible doesn't really address the point.

Nor does the patronising implication that they aren't buying because it's not their perfect house


I'm not sure that the paedophilia scare has much bearing on drinking...

But I would add spiralling rental and housing costs mean millenials have less disposable cash than previous generations, further tightening the squeeze on pubs. Combined with home owners looking to make sure those house prices and rents keep rising by trying to remove anything remotely noisy, like live music, clubs etc.

It's not something anyone in the UK wants to address, house prices are a growing problem that's going to bite it in the arse while everyone looks for something else to blame
