The problem is they are NOT repairing the DESIGN DEFECT (thin bendy non supported PCB results in cracked BGA joints under touch sensing chip).
Previous models had metal can (rf shielding) over the BGA chips, this metal can offered reinforcement and provided stiffness. But it added 0.1mm thickness, cant have that, in Iphone 6 Apple replaced metal can with a STICKER.

make 10 fake uber driver profiles with "scary" pictures, collect from all the fake rides you didnt do, count on cultural fear of ghosts to not get complaints.
China is full of entrepreneurs like that.

Another example: Shenzhen police started a program rewarding traffic violation recordings from dash cams with straight up cash (something like $5?)

there are tutorials on chinese social media how to make good money inciting other people to brake traffic laws.

Those repairs DO last because Jessa actually fixes Apples shoddy design by _reinforcing_ touch ic with additional metal shield, you know, the way Apple did it in previous models.

As for economics, would you rather pay another $600 when you can repair your current device for half as much?

what good would extra 60 frames _from the past_ do to your VR experience? other than make you puke

BTW Microsoft once championed the idea of generating 3D from a bunch of 2D tiles, this would enable tricks like motion compensation for tile reusing. It went pretty well for everyone involved (read billions invested/wasted by all MS 'partners').
