FINALLY, the cow troll is on topic!

I just wish they would at least confine it to Friday. By letting it seep into thursday, they're causing quite a few dismal Thanksgiving dinners for the family of people who have to work.
Tell that to the families that can't have a decent holiday because of employers anxious to show us how unthankful they are by trampling one of the few national holidays that are observed at all as anything but an excuse to sell mattresses.
Care to mention something we can replace those products with? Tell me about an easy to fix cell phone, I'd really wish to have one.
Actually, demanding more easily repairable devices wouldn't be in their best interest if they sell repair kits. If the phones are easier to fix, nobody needs the repair kits anymore.
But now we're not just talking about oddly shaped screws where it's hard to get a screwdriver for. We're talking about patented screws where it's pretty much impossible to get a screwdriver for, at least legally.
THAT is the difference in those screws.
It's a BMW, the Apple of car manufacturers. What exactly did you expect?
In that case, kick out your designers and engineers and hire better ones.
Warranty on what exactly.
If you purchase a pre-assembled computer, you have a right to warranty on the way these parts are assembled in on top of the warranty of each single part. You can actually go and claim damages if, e.g. the cooling isn't sufficient and the CPU gets damaged because the fan was improperly installed. This is of course out the window if you open the case because it's no longer possible to determine whether you have tampered with it and hence whose fault it is that the heat sink wasn't properly installed on the CPU.
You could not lose warranty on the parts with the removal of the sticker. Only on assembly.
So the legal system needs fixing so we can fix our appliances. Gotcha.
Look, you're wrong and you're full of shit. I even gave you a reference to the Wikipedia article which points out that Egypt IS in the middle east. If you think you know better than a scholarly article on the subject, then I don't give a shit what you think, you probably think the moon landings were a hoax too.
It was the CEO BEFORE the last one that burnt the company for the insurance, that is how this works. Its the same with AMD, the current CEO is trying to stop the bleeding, even going so far as to hire back the designer of the Athlon64 from Apple, but it was the one after the founder (Rory Read I think, but they went through 3 real quickly) that fired everybody and cashed out.
You see its like playing hot potato, you don't want to be the one left with the bag.
All I can think of is the EFF's NSA spy eagle playing in its "nest" with its baby spy eagles perched atop some poor souls roof.
Well, given the the holiday is a winter solstice holiday, which people have celebrated probably since the dawn of agriculture, and it was originally a week long and involved temporarily suspending normal social rules, I'd say that was absolutely the primary reason for the holiday, as well as honoring the great Saturn.
I don't want to get into an argument about biblical exegesis (reading ancient texts with our post-Enlightenment mindset is fraught with difficulty at the best of times). My point is that what Ussher did wasn't at all stupid. Actually it was remarkably smart and scientific by the standards of his day, and given what little he had to work with.
