Of course, everyone is shitty to some degree. But this is exactly what the Russian trolls are using to muddy the waters. Oh so somebody in Ukraine renamed a street? Well RUSSIA INVADED AND OCCUPIED part of the country and is responsible for THOUSANDS DEAD AND MILLIONS DISPLACED. So we're totally even right?
Like, it's not nearly remotely the same. But they'll stick in every discussion about Ukraine/Georgia/Syria and try to confuse the situation. It works so well that in real-life discussions people will claim that Ukraine is governed by literal Nazis, when the closet thing to them, the Right Sector, have exactly one seat in the parliament. Russia's LDPR, headed by this nutjob has 39 seats in Duma, for reference.
Hey, by the way, did you know the Czechs sterilized Roma women without consent?!?
It's of course bad that (very few of) their phones catch fire, but meh.
Unless it is shown that they knew that there was a higher risk of fire and continued regardless, at worst it looks like they tried to make a better phone and messed up something that would've been very difficult to catch in testing as it occurs with very low frequency. Samsung recalled the device and issued refunds or replacements, so I think it was pretty reasonably handled.
It's an individual nut with a gun.
Who happened to walk into a business and shoot because he was goaded on by GOP propaganda spread not just by random trolls, but party leaders. The Republican party has a real mess on its hands. This will not end well.
If you can't see it for what it is, you've got a problem.
It is simply the expected end result of GOP lead lies combined with their rabid insistence of weaponizing lunatics for poltical gain. One would be silly to think otherwise.
Yeah, exactly. Also, most shrinkage in retail is caused by employee theft. So if anything, self-checkout helps avoid that part altogether
Don't worry, soon enough God-Emperor Trump will build the factory and make the Chinese pay for it!
Why do you assume either of us are Apple fanboys? Can't we just be facts fanboys? You tried to correct someone with wrong information and in a pretty condescending manner at that. I just pointed that out and provided a refernce which clearly explained the ruling and why you were wrong.
Maybe "stop breathing" was too aggressive, how about "stop posting" instead
Samsung HQ raided? It must be Wednesday!
Also I think calling Korea one of the most corrupt countries is really exaggerating it when the world outside of Western Europe and North America exists. It's similar to Spain and Czech Republic, better than Italy and waay better than most of everything else.
But really the whole situation is much more interesting than the company having a slush fund for bribes. An old friend of the president is accused of running a cult and influencing the president among other stuff. It's really bizarre:
That's really misrepresenting that situation, and you should know better before correcting people like that.
Apple was following the Irish taxation rules and did not break any laws. What EU is claiming is that the tax regime constituted to state-aid which favored Apple and other companies. Not only Apple, but Ireland (and the US) disagrees about this and are appealing.
You're the one making this a "smart" vs "not smart" issue, the OP said "blue collar" and [college] educated which is basically a class thing. The latter are doing pretty great, despite the constant bitching about the evil Indians taking dem jerbs.
