    Well, I left my airpods in my pants pocket when I did laundry and guess what? Yep, my airpods got washed AND dried.

    I'm calling Apple in the morning and demanding replacement since it was their fault.

    Bah wah wah wah!
    Did you use laundry detergent pods?

    This.

    That poor old lady gets used as a punchline - and no one knows McDonalds knowingly served coffee that was dangerously over the temperature threshold. She gets laughed at after having multiple skin grafts because McDonalds was serving essentially napalm in a cup.

    Mcdonalds PR team did a great job making sure that’s what people think.
    I make a pour-over coffee every day. 205 degrees F is the optimal temperature for brewing coffee. If people want luke-warm coffee they should ask for it. McDonalds should make a better cup to handle coffee.

    Nope, I use powder.

    I did try the pods once.....not bad but the after taste is a bit rough.

    Had to go back to powder.

    Accountability.... or the lack thereof, seems to be a disturbing trend these days. I think it applies to this conversation, as well as many other conversations on other topics that don't even apply to this one.

    Everyone is missing the point.
    People are mad because Apple has decided to make the glass back panel irreplacable. They have decided to solder camera to the glass panel so that they could get more money from you.

    Look at Android phones. With an aftermarket glass panel it would cost you $20 dollars to replace it. $50-80 if you wanna run it through the vendor.
    Apple didn't have to do it this way! You as customers should be mad, not praising it!
    I agree both with the sentiment of the OP (that blaming Apple for a broken phone is non-sensical), I also agree a little bit with this. I'm not mad at Apple, but I think it's too bad that we're back to all-glass phones again. Back in 2013, I ended up staying with Android almost solely because I was worried about an all-glass iPhone, and those iPhones at least were relatively reparable compared with the 8 series and the X. I do keep my phone in a case - always have - and use a screen protector - always have - and have AppleCare+ - always get it, haven't used it yet for an iPhone - and rarely drop my phone, and never carry it in my back pocket, but I will most surely say that I would have been more comfortable buying an aluminum version of the iPhone X over this one. I will never use* wireless charging (I've done that; I want my battery to last as long as possible, and the heat and more inefficient charging of Qi just conflicts with that long-term battery health I want from this phone), and I cannot think of any other major reason to have a glass-backed phone at this point.

    So, not mad at Apple, I agree that blaming Apple is silly, but - it's IMHO too bad that they went all glass again, particularly in a way that's so hard and expensive to repair.


    * Well, I fired up my old Tylt Qi charger from 2014 the other day just to see how it worked with the X. A lot better than it did with my old Moto phone, actually... but that's the last I'll use it.

    1. In your opinion, which iPhone, in and of itself, is the best one Apple has made?
    2. Of all of the iPhone models, which is the fastest in terms of processing speed?
    It’s been a minute since I last been here. My answer to that question has changed since the new iPhones came out. Before I would’ve said the 4/4S design was brilliant, but now I’d have to go with my iPhone XS. I know what you are (were) getting at. Technically the newest iPhone is the best iPhone, but it’s been overused imo.

    “The fastest iPhone we’ve ever made.” It better be the fastest iPhone you made, no ones buying a phone slower than last years mode.

    Parents try and teach their children responsibility and accountability.

    The children peers teach them that kicking and screaming about something will get them what they want regardless of responsibility or accountability.

    When my adult kids were children, they wouldn’t dare act out like that because they knew I would kick ‘em through a brick wall if they did.....

    If you so much as yell at your kids wrong these days there's always someone around ready to call CPS. Times are different and too many adults think they have the right to interfere in how parents parent their children.

    I've always found it humorous that we have this opinion yet we never stop to think about where these parent's we are talking about learned to be parents.

    Whatever happened to the idea of children growing to be the adults their parents raised them to be? If we are critical of current parents/adults...should we not look at the generation who raised them? Lol.

    Which furthers my point of how many parents have no business being parents. If you weren't raised to be fit as a parent then why are you a parent?

    Uh, yeah. The baby-boomer generation had some really crappy parents.

    Yep, and because of that fear, a good deal of kids have a tendency of talking to their parents any way they feel and some have even struck their parents....Let one of mine try that. They’ll never be able to hit anyone again...(Laughing)

    There’s a teacher who is in hot water here where I live cause he let loose on a student who was berating him for being disciplined. Extremely rude with insults and the like. Surprisingly the teacher has more support from the community than originally thought. It’s nice to see that.

    No. It was this. Around 0:59 of the video is what started the incident.

    And this wouldn’t scare me one bit!!! That’s the problem in the US, people are too scared to patent. I have young nieces/nephews & random people don’t even look my way when I have to discipline the kids. I wish somebody would say something to me Spankings & firm disciplinary convos are not the same as beatings and verbal abuse...people need to chill.

    Ngl it's a pretty effective way of teaching lessons to kids some times. Telling kids to humble themselves isn't as effective as humbling them. Probably stopped me from doing a lot of stupid things in life.

    Probably? I didn’t really have peer pressure because (1) I didn’t hang around with criminals
    (2) I didn’t have any problems telling friends, “I’m not getting beat down by my mom and dad for you”.
    (3) All of my friends parents parented the same way as mine.

    Hah, funny, I’m not sure it does the kids any good but it certainly made me feel better !
    I watched a woman clip her horrible freckly little eight year (?) old boy round the ear one day, hard enough to bend him, not a flicker, not a muscle moved in his face. Until he was behind her... then he stuck his tongue out and carried on tormenting his little brother.

    I meant probably as in when I was younger. I don’t remember much, but I’m sure it kept me straight when I wasn’t old enough to know any better.
