Surprise! Apple is Trying to Screw You Once Again, Literally.

0

I figured looking at this vintage pic of Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak was better than looking at the other ten thousand pics of the present day, bald, old man Steve Jobs standing in front of a screen giving a keynote speech.

I’m pretty sure we were the last person on earth to get an iphone. Okay, okay, that’s an exaggeration, maybe the second last. That being said, despite owning a second hand, first model that after 6 months we still barely know how to use, we remain remarkably anti-Apple products.  In any event, in a move that is about as surprising as finding out that 90% of Apple programmers are still virgins, the company has begun switching over to a new, tamper resistant screw which would prevent owners from being able to open the device on their own and thus be forced to take their phone to Mac stores for any and all repair, including the ever popular DIY screen replacement.

On the one hand I want to call Mac out for trying to cash in on their consumers more than they already do, but on the other, as a moron who is notorious for thinking they can fix things only to destroy them beyond repair I’m actually viewing this one as them protecting me from myself.
