with trump at the helm, who's really suprised by this, he has no idea about technology

Class action lawsuit coming against apple

David Foster · December 30, 2017 at 2:50 pm

Can't speak for the industry, but I know I've got all the thumb-toys I'm going to need for quite a while.

Smartphone are time bomb for malfunction and will soon become a real time bomb.

I feel bad to apple, i feel betrayed. Although i keep changing iphone every new unit i que in singapore just to be the first to got 1. The problem is i sell my old fones to my cousins and friends and their fone shut down after 2 months i sell my iphone 6 and 6s plus. Not my problem anymore but they are my cousins i feel bad for them. I feel like im cheater but the true cheater is apple.

I've been talking about this facebook ads for awhile, now. Thing about Windows 10 is the bells and whistles that go off, after clicking on Trump/Hillary posts. Old people never learn, when it comes to tech. Only thing is, we didn't know these were russian ads. Also I should mention the severe malware that couldn't be cleaned and took out a pc repair man's network. The infection was traced back to Russia. And it was around the time of the debates.

Haven't trusted tech companies since the Snowden revelations.

Macnutz420 · December 30, 2017 at 2:50 pm

Then there is Volkswagen being hit hard because of their very dirty dealings. The corporate giants do what ever they can to squeeze every penny they can and only admit it when they have to.

Some Americans are finally figuring out that they have no place this new tech economy. Americans do not have the education required for such jobs. Those jobs are primarily taken by Asian and European workers who have the required education and training background. You can not force them to hire American because there are too few Americans who can do those jobs.

Those are the desirable high wage jobs that require well educated well and highly trained workers. Not Americans. The price of America's anti intellectual mind set is high and Americans are only beginning pay the cost.

Some of them have not been innovative enough.Its oh look it's another phone that cracks or breaks when you drop it or battery life has no life.Nah I've been looking at the flexible screen stuff.Now that's impressive.

I hope for a new Mac Pro & a powerful Mac Mini in 2018. Apple needs to sharpen their desktops…

David Pirtle · December 30, 2017 at 2:50 pm

Tech's real problem is its hardware is plateauing.

flyingmobias · December 30, 2017 at 2:50 pm

People love tech. They're increasingly dependent on it. The headline is overgeneralized and misleading imo

DeskAgent · December 30, 2017 at 2:50 pm

Doom and gloom from the folks who bring you your daily dose of fake news. Apple… Facebook… going down the tubes? Apple and Facebook are doing just fine despite the ridiculous assertions these idiots make. Then I stopped watching this farce. MSNBC = FAKE NEWS

jeff Webb · December 30, 2017 at 2:50 pm

My attitude is to insure that technology is your servant, not the other way around.

Mr K · December 30, 2017 at 2:50 pm

No thanks to that bone-gnawing mutant in the White House.

Spinmonkey Lives · December 30, 2017 at 2:50 pm

Technology is being used to make the population complacent beast system slaves. The internet was invented by the serpent bloodline for complete beast system takeover IN the disguise of unlimited knowledge…. All they had to do was censor it. The devils homosexuals who screamed discrimination filled up social media jobs and now discriminate against truth wiping out freedom of speech intentionally. You'll notice that the phone companies. Like Verizon, At€T

aes0p · December 30, 2017 at 2:50 pm

"TEKsun, sit down."

PINKY PONY · December 30, 2017 at 2:50 pm

and the FCC…..sits back….smiling…….as the ENTIRE INTERNET does the same thing as Apple.

mymovetube · December 30, 2017 at 2:50 pm

Lot of fake accounts and fake supporters posting from Russia.

Obama Mama · December 30, 2017 at 2:50 pm

So many Russian trolls in these comments. Putin needs to be eliminated. Which he will be. Just a matter of time. He is pure evil.

Truth Betold · December 30, 2017 at 2:50 pm

Tech is for the wealthy.

ThE DuCk · December 30, 2017 at 2:50 pm

Whatever the tech world's good intentions may have been, greed has taken it's place..

“Greed is a fat demon with a small mouth and whatever you feed it is never enough.”
