    I have an Apple iPad, it is just a bit over 3 years old & out of warranty.
    I can not report a bug with a couple of their own apps that has arisen in one of the recent updates.
    Because my iPad is out of warranty, I will have to pay for a service call, just to report a bug.
    Fuck 'em, I don't need their apps anyway, I can use a 3rd party app to do the same thing.
    Strange how the stupid kuntz want me to use one of these apps for security reasons but I can't report it if it isn't working.

    Just go to https://bugreport.apple.com/ and log in Cliff.

    Pay for a service call? Hmm.... made one last week on behalf of a friend (to get him off my back - handed the phone straight to him), I thought I had to pay, but no charge involved. I think it's to do with distance from an Apple store where service is free plus parts. I'd seriously hate to be an Apple reseller - they just don't get a fair go IMHO and they aren't allowed to stock parts from "grandfathered" models either.

    But they (Apple) do know how to turn a quid.

    Cheers,

    Ta, that worked a treat.... not.

    It said my Apple ID account doesn't exist.
    Horse spit... I have an e-mail from them showing I used that account 6 days ago.

    I did an account recovery & now it tells me...
    Account recovery will take a few days. You can check the status of your request at iforgot.apple.com
    10 Minutes you reckon?

    OK, I went about it a different way, first of all I logged in to https://appleid.apple.com/account/manage

    That page let me use my normal log in.

    Next I went to https://bugreport.apple.com/

    Now it tells me...

    ... and they will charge you $140 a year to be an Apple developer.

    We've been doing a mobile app and fuck they are difficult to deal with and their websites are difficult to navigate. On the other hand the Android stuff and Google play store are a breeze to deal with.

    Sounds fair to me, I mean they only take 60% of your gross sales........ what a monster cashflow.

    I was discussing their cash reserves the other day, and think it's interesting - since before Gates (2) it has been concerned to have enough cash to get it out of any situation. It is capable of reinventing itself as anything, and I can't think of another company in history that's done that. I don't like being it's customer, but there's a lot to like about its product and service.

    Cheers,

    Yes they are all about the money and not their customers.

    We had a app rejected by Crapple because we had a "forgot your password" link in it that they said could be used to get us new customers (without Crapple getting their cut). This app is just a free tool for our EXISTING customers to use in conjunction with our desktop software. I argued the case but they were adamant that it could be used to get new customers.

    In the end I just had to remove the link ... fuck the customer experience, if they forget their password they will just have to contact us via phone/email.

    Fuck seagate. Been burnt again by them. Don't trust them

    My new NAS has Western Digital drives, bought separately but at same time. Apparently only choice was WD or Seagate. Not overly happy, but wanted them then and there not at some point in the future and not handled by australia post or any of their subcontractors.

    I've got WD drives in the NAS too.

    I don't buy HDDs for laptops, just SSD. They have come down in price now and the performance improvement you get is massive.
