If you think it's any better with Android, you'd be sorely mistaken. After installing Lolipop on my SGS5, it's performance went to complete shit and the battery life is abysmal (even with a brand new battery). I was able to fix the performance problem by doing things no user should have to do but I'm still working on the battery issue. And my experience is hardly anecdotal. Do some googling and you will find this is happening to A LOT of people.

I might agree with you if there were some kind of program to retrain people in other fields by paying for vocational schools but there isn't. When you're out of work, especially for extend periods of time, you don't have money to spend on school. Essentially you doom people to minimum wage jobs or extending their dependency on the government dole by paying for more unemployment or even welfare and food stamps. We don't currently have a programs in place to get people back on their feet so that they can be self sufficient. Fix that and I'm with you. Until then what you're saying is simply idealistic bullshit.

I bought my MBP at Best Buy and I could also return it within 30 days. Whoopie-fucking-do. Not that it matters because he bought his two months ago. Additionally, it would not have been possible to for Lenovo to provide an upgrade to an existing model with this new tech since it's an entirely different part that uses a PCIe 3.0 interface rather than a standard SATA interface. In short, none of your arguments apply.

One can't proceed from the informal to the formal by formal means.
