Except you are pretty much paying the full price of the phone, with a car you usually pay around 250 * 24 = 6000 of a 20000 or more car. I can't see leasing if you have to pay the full price only to have the privilege of turing it in in a year or two. Apple is probably going to make cash hand over fist with this because people will be basically buying the phone only to give it back to apple for free so they can refurbish and resell it.

It would be nice if the guaranteed refunds were automatic. I bought a game about a week ago played it for about 10 minutes and hated the controls. When this program launched yesterday I asked for a refund and though it is "guaranteed" I still have not received a response from steam support.

Yea but we release our treated sewage so the new water has been tainted so it is basically recycled water, also I'm sure our intake is not in a remote ocean location. There might be "clean water" out there but I'm fairly certain we are still using recycled water even if we aren't directly recirculating sewage into the tap.
