. . . the in-process Maunder-type Solar Minimum gets ignored.
Wow, you should write your local scientist and reveal this important information to them.
A "failure" here includes an app that crashes. In your case you're saying the touch screen has failed to work, 4 times in a row, and somehow you know it's about to be 5 times.
The chance of a failure involving the touchscreen is statistically (from the report you didn't read) 3%. Raising 0.03 to the fifth power gives a failure rate of 0.0000000243.
Still going with Occam.
Well, literally hundreds of millions of people (per year) buy iPhones (last 12 months was 215 million) and don't have this problem.
I could see you getting a bad phone - shit happens. I could (just about) see you getting *two* bad phones out of two. There is no way I'd buy that you got three successive phones that failed in the same way, as for five ? Well, I'll be charitable and say you must be the unluckiest person on the planet. Is your name Brian by any chance ?
For reference: "In line with the firm’s fourth-quarter report, a study that analyzed smartphone failures during the first quarter of 2016 determined that Android devices cause far more problems for their owners than iPhones. According to Blancco Technology Group’s new data, 44% of Android phones experienced failures between January and March of this year, compared to 25% of iPhones"
Occam's razor says I still think you don't look after the phone, assuming you're telling the truth. Sorry.
Yep, in an nutshell.
You sell 215 million (how many phones Apple sold in the last 12 months) of *anything*, and there's going to be a tiny percentage of them that go wrong in some pattern-like way. Even 0.001% of 215 million is 2150 people with a problem, and although a failure rate of 0.001% is pretty damn good with such a complex device, that's still enough for "many" people to come up with a common problem and someone to get some ad-revenue from the click-bait headline.
(Also own an iPhone, a 6+, and haven't seen any issues)
Good luck trying to get *any* cell phone without BGA chips in them. Or any electronics component, really - maybe a toaster.
To be honest, I agree with the above poster. Absent any specifics, I'd say the problem is you and how you treat the phone.
*sees literally every single electronic item uses BGA chips*
*wonders what goes on in people's minds, sometimes*
Oh for crying out loud.
There are literally (and I use the word correctly) *billions* of BGA chips out there, in all environments from the most benign to the harshest around, from industrial levels of vibration to space exploration (including the launch). Shock, horror, in a sample size that large, some of them fail, well cry me a river. There is no human technology that is 100% perfect, but soldering chips, yes, even BGA chips to boards is pretty damn close.
As for not doing them at home, I've done BGA chips at home many many times - you can actually do them with a toaster oven, but if you want a good (i.e.: ~100%) success rate, you could always get one of these. If you look past the truly egregious website, there's a really well engineered product there, which guarantees alignment as the chip is placed. I've got one and frankly I prefer doing a BGA chip than soldering a QFP by hand (of course the machine does QFP too...)
Inspection, now, that's a different beast. I've thought about getting an old dental XRAY machine off eBay, but who knows if it's strong enough. One day I'll remember to take one of my boards along to my dentist and get them to take a snapshot of it. At the moment, I'm too busy building a laser-cutter anyway.
...considering the way the establishment is suddenly working overtime to discredit them.
He should have released it before he blew his reputation by resorting to publishing crap.
Yeah, I know... the damning evidence will be in the *next* dump. And always will be.
Hillary Clinton's PR firm must be in overdrive trying to discredit Wikileaks
Looks to me like Wikileaks is doing a fine job of discrediting itself without any help.
It should be noted that the waste was from nuclear weapons production not nuclear power.
That makes it hard to spot the News for Nerds angle. If it was power generation we could assume that someone used the electricity to charge a Tesla or run a computer mining bitcoin.
I keep a Windows system around for minor software that needs it
My first language is not english but
I would have thought that would be an advantage.
Does it matter? It's not reverseable anyway. Just live further north and away from the shoreline, problem solved.
Hey, in a few thousand years the current interglacial will probably come to an end, and our descendants will be glad we heated the place up in advance.
Not going to be much fun until then, though.
