I remember someone did the math on a windows update that caused computers to use like 0.1-0.5% more power and America basically had to do the equivalent of adding another nuclear power plant to handle that extra power.

Little things add up.

I brought my iphone 5 in smashes to shit from years in trades and they said ‘oh the camera doesn’t work, that is independent of the damage so have a free new phone’.

I sent in my 11 to get a new screen a few weeks ago and they sent me a brand new phone. No idea why. Looks like my dad is getting a new phone.

Same parent company.

But I did say that I buy the red cordless tools for my contracting company. They are mostly amazing, save for the 3-4 year old trash grade brushless onekey drills (top end models, bad chucks, weak bodies) and the new 1/2” impact wrenches that keep exploding. I’m so glad I bought the last gen impact.

Did you see the inside of the 1/2” impact failures yet? They removed 1/2 of the support on the planetary gearset so it just shears all the pins. It looks like they let a first year engineer go crazy with cost cutting inside there. Even the best companies make stupid decisions now and then.

Milfuckee makes great cordless tools (my industrial contracting shop is mostly red) but most of their hand tools and especially their cutting tools like blades / bits are fucking garbage.

Project Farm on youtube proves this again and again. He does exceptionally well thought out tests and their tools perform poorly most every time.
