Comment Re:windows marketplace (Score 1) 289

I like windows mobile 6.5, it is actually stable and fast IMO. What I despise is the UI, they actually took a step backwards compared to 6.0. However, after killing palm, like with IE they went stagnant, and now have to deal with a dead OS overshadowed by nearly anything else. If they would have "windows 7ened" their mobile OS in time for the win7 launch their mobile OS future might not be so dim. What I like about win mobile is the wide and open (compared to apple) variety of aps, I can install whatever browser or media player I want.

I don't repair these for a living, but I fixed my grandmother's computer, which was regularly exposed to her cigarette smoke. That dust inside you mention? Take that and mix it with tar. It winds up being a thick, sticky, messy, paste that traps heat and even more dust until things overheat and even short out. I wouldn't be surprised if that crap even caused fires. Truly, it must be seen to be believed.

Anyway, boo on Apple for this trick. Replace the unit under warranty and keep your customers happy. God knows they paid enough of a premium and can reasonably expect better service and consideration from Apple than for some $300 Dell.
