    Apple are such a crappy company.
    Their products are nothing special and they treat customers like crap.
    Profit is the only thing they care about.
    I am so shocked how they still can get any support and earn so much money.
    The market dont work, the customers seem just love to get screwed and fucked.
    Never ever buy an apple product.

    I used to own an Iphone. along with Itunes. This was back in 2008-2010 before they changed their Itunes so if you bought it it stays on Itunes. I had bought music through Itunes along with movies and TV shows. At some point I downloaded all my music I had on CD's I had purchased over the years. Along with some other music I downloaded. Apple allowed their Itunes program to delete all my music I had on my computer including all the music I downloaded from CD's. After that I stopped buying stuff on Itunes. At that time I was in the Navy so I couldn't spend hours re-downloading everything on my computer. I was pissed. After this I stopped buying apple stuff too.

    The only shocking thing about this video is the realization that people STILL buy from and support apple. I've seen right through apple ever since the beginning of the iphone. I laugh at people who insist apple products are superior. They are like Trump supporters... The evidence is right in front of them they see how shitty what they are supporting is clearly, and still swear by it and make excuses for it.

    Because Apple's Stock isn't doing too well, this will only get worse because they need to sell more computers. They don't want you to get your iMac or iPhone repaired, they want you to buy a new one if it breaks.

  • Green Lean

    You've really twisted this to make you sound better. You took the computer apart and broke it yourself, when taking the computer apart is clearly outlined by the company that it voids service eligibility (which was warned to you in the first place). Then when you get the email that the repair was declined because of this, you don't speak with the store about this? Instead your tech guy questions someone on the other side of the country on chat?! If you were being honest in this video you would have actually spoke of your conversation with the Apple Store, and how you were told that the repair was declined because of unauthorized disassembly. But instead, you focus on parts being the issue?! This one-sided anger isn't attractive. This video shows so much hostility. It is evident that you're trying to build barriers by not spreading the whole truth and purposely speaking worse of the company. I'm disappointed that you took the route of lies and trying to get attention. Its fine if you have a bad experience with a company or don't prefer their products, but don't try to destroy them just to inflate your ego.

      agreed but this is not the only case of this happening, even if they accept repairs they cost 1000$ and more than the product costs in first place even if it is a simple error that can be repaired in no time and in any other company would cost something like 50$ or less

    If apple had it their way, once something broke it would dissolve away like in video games.

      +Vuk Lakić well in my town I tried to get my Sony tv repaired ... no way .. you had to drive it to the only sony authorized dealer in a near town 45 minutes away in car on a highway... and whatever they said was wrong, that is what you paid at their price. The tv was huge and for a 45 minute trip .. I would have to rent a truck or something maybe a van. My local tv repair place said sony wont ship them parts.. and if they wanted to be a sony dealer you had to pay sony 2,000 dollars for some kind of dealer kit they send you.. well that is what he said anyways...I never did get it repaired ... that other authorized dealer place was known for bloating their repair prices to ridiculous amounts.

      SS Sandman 9 days ago

      Sheep? There are more Windoze people out there, how is owning an Apple product equate to being a sheep? Because we like a more intuitive OS, that supports some great software for audio and video?
      The cost of the MAC includes the OS which is inheritedly more secure and any future updates as well as many other applications that you would have to buy if you built a PC.
      Go price me a PC with the SAME specs as the iMAC Pro and you will see you will easily be getting into the 3-4k range. Even the Microsoft Surface Studio all-in-one costs over 4k and includes a Consumer grade i7 and not a 8 core Intel Xeon, which starts about 1.5k for just the CPU. A 5k monitor with the same specs as the iMAC Pro will cost between 1-1.5k. So you have 3k right there, before adding anything else. Yes Apple ridiculously overprices their memory and drive upgrades and this video shows how their support services can be total BS. However, I know many times that they have replaced people's failed components even if they were outside of warranty.
      Before you call me a "sheep" I built a Hackintosh for my most recent upgrade. Don't care for the overly busy Windows 10 experience, but can boot into it if I ever need to.
      All I see if just a bunch of haters looking to bitch about something they don't like.
