Engineering Video

The horrible truth about Apple’s repeated engineering failures.

1:01 – A1226/A1260 2007-2008 Macbook GPU failures, warranty service refusal
2:21 – A1226/A1260 2007-2008 Macbook Pro hinge/frame problem
3:16 – A1286 Macbook Pro – the “Unibody” myth, glued together pieces fall apart
4:58 – A1286/A1297 MCP power circuit failure due to poor buck converter design: C7771 issue
6:01 – iPhone 4 cellular placement fail
7:12 – iPhone 5 power button problem
7:27 – A1286 2010 Macbook Pro GPU kernel panics due to same buck converter defect from 2008/2009(this gives you a hint that apple engineers doesn’t give a crap about engineering not bad products, same design flaw for three straight years)
10:04 – A1286 2011 Macbook Pro GPU failure, Apple gets sued over not addressing problem.
11:43 – Apple gives out badly refurbished boards as warranty replacements for 2011 GPU failures.
13:06 – 2012 Retina Macbook Pro: another motherboard issue (U8900), due to poor soldering/manufacturing method on the GPU buck converter.
14:46 – Mac Pro GPU failure (again).
16:27 – iPhone 6/6+ touchscreen issue due to structural issue.
18:23 – SSD soldered straight into the motherboard+ chip that would kill the macbook, because a power line would short out to ground when the chip dies.
20:18 – 2016 Macbook keyboard reliability issue.
21:52 – 2016 Macbook Battery failure issue.
22:50 – A1278 Macbook Pro SATA cable failures(yes, really).

For 10+ years Apple has produced failure after failure – and never had to pay the consequences. It’s time that changed.

Here is what Lenovo did to a laptop I literally dropped half a gallon of water into WHILE IT WAS ON:

Here’s my review of the Thinkpad P50:
Here’s my review of the Moto G:
Here’s my durability test of the Moto G by throwing it at the wall repeatedly:

Just don’t buy the Yoga or Ideapad, they’re all garbage. X, T, and P series Thinkpads are amazing though.
