>MacRumors reader Alvin Shen alerted us to multiple users on the Adobe support forums who report that Premiere Pro suddenly caused loud, distorted audio to play through their MacBook Pro speakers, resulting in permanent damage. In many cases, the issue arose when users were editing the audio settings of video clips.

>Our tipster Shen took his MacBook Pro to the Genius Bar at an Apple Store in Canada and was provided with an over $600 repair quote for his 2018 15-inch MacBook Pro. The price is so high because Apple replaces the entire top case assembly containing the speakers, keyboard, trackpad, and battery.

Imagine making hardware so shit it can be randomly damaged by unexpected software inputs.

Apple is getting a ton of backlash these days over the cost of repairs, QC, etc. I really wonder if they'll ever address this with a hardware refresh.

Though i doubt we'll go back to the pre-retina design where you can easily replace the drives, RAM and batteries. Then again, laptops now are so much more portable.

what's your point?

Electronics can last, or they can fail at which point you repair them.

What people complain about most is that you can't repair Apple shit because you can't get the parts and everything is soldered to the board.

If a part fails, you should be able to replace the part and not replace the whole computer

It's kind of funny how I heard some stories about really shady garages taking in a car for repair & saying they needed to replace all kinds of things afterwards growing up as horror-stories on bad business practices.

Rossman's had customers on camera with Apple quotes when the wifi cable inside the machine has come lose. This is really a manufacturing problem Apple should own up to. Rossman opened the machine, attached the cable and volla, done. Apples quotes included all kinds of things like keyboard, touchpad, screen replacement for this simple 2 second repair. It's crazy. They are a thin hair from saying that you need to buy a new computer if it's got a small scratch on the casing. It really is quite insane.

imagine someone besides apple made halfway decent products. You can spend roughly the same amount on Dell XPS laptops and end up with worse quality that Apple for the same price.
Im not defending Apple's bullshit, just point out that the grass isnt necessarily any greener on the other side.

For example, I have an iPhone XS and the reception is absolute dogshit on it, VoLTE is simply unusable. I could get better reception with a GS9 or upcoming GS10...but then I have put up with Samsung's bullshit. So for now, I just switch off VoLTE and go on about my life.

I don't have to. Everyone else seems to be able to make products that don't explode, bend, crash daily, and slow down after a single year. And they don't even charge half the price.
