Greenpeace Slams Apple, 16GB iPhone Rumors, Apple's Customer Service Problems

Having recently purchased an 8GB iphone, overall a decent product for the $400.+, but now after having done more thorough research, I am finding the 16GB for less than $300. and that includes free shipping.
The problem with the phone I purchased is the fit of the metal screen frame to the body of the phone, there is a slight gap between these parts and because of this flaw, I have cut my fingers twice !
The frame edge is very sharp and cuts like a paper cut. I contacted iphone Customer Service, need I say more? that is a rhetorical question.
Some days later they offered to make the repair on the phone at my cost for shipping and no loaner. The phone was activated on Christmas.
My iphone experience has been tainted with my own blood, and unsatisfactory customer service, especially considering the CEO's statements about the company's customer service issues.
I am frustrated by iphones response and the fact that I can get it cheaper with more GBs elsewhere.
I am an AT&T member and they were of absolutely no help.
If anyone has had a similar experience I would be interested in your comments...
A unhappy iphone customer.

I'm all for less pollution but my experience has been that those people and groups that delight in harrassing people and companies usually should take a second look at the facts of what they speak.
Who would ever know that a VW diesel puts out less greenhouse gases than a Toyota Prius? I never met a self appointed "environmentalist" that realized this. Multiply this by the millions of others people x the number of truths they've never thought about and you have a lot of BS in the environmetal arena. (I mean, come on...Al Gore is #1 in the idiot line.)

Its not pollution these people are really about. The dupes may think so but, in truth, its about controlling the behavior of others - in many facets of life.

The writer of the comment above, the one I initially responded to, gave himself away with his "keep companies in check" comment. I just want to know what else he wants to keep in check. He sounds like a right wing religious zealous only he's probably not right wing at all. His religion is his comfort in a lack of knowledge.

«His religion is his comfort in a lack of knowledge»

Seems you are talking about yourself, there!

Come on, while I agree groups like Greenpeace go over the top at times (and they do seem to have jumped the gun on this one), it's unbelievably sad to see people like you be so completely blind to the reality of pollution.

You think I'm a religious zealous because I'm all for being environmentally smarter about the way we do business?

Gee! Who's really the ignorant extremist, here?

Don't take my comments personally. You're not that important.

Over the years I've seen so many issues become national or international scares, building into a life of their own, causing public fear, when after all, they're not based in fact.
The car maker Audi almost went bankrupt a couple of decades ago when it was reported that the 5000 model would self-accelerate causing crashes. As far as I know the the silicone breast implant scare had no basis in science. In the 80s Newsweeks cover presented the coming ice age. I heard Chris Mathews, of MSNBC fame, corner with questioning, the head of PETA, getting him to admit that one of the ultimate goals was to eliminate all "companion animals."
I know a guy that works for a big power company that used to be a major anti-business alarmist. He was a believer, amoung other things, that giant powerlines caused cancer in those living in the proximity of such. But he now admits there is just no science to back it up. (And thus no need to keep those companies in check, or the people that work for them.) But many, many, many people still think its true and are adamant about these and similar issues. And some politicians glom onto to that ignorance for personal benefit.
And..there...are...so...many...more...examples.

Now we are in an age, because of the internet and the resulting instant worldwide news systems, that rumor can spread immediately. Disspelling untruths that have spread worldwide are even more difficult to correct. Once you get the torch wielding masses inline, not unlike the verbiage you spouted, of the need to keep companies in control (and thus the people that work at those companies - wink, wink) you can manipulate them for your purposes.

Don't think that the 60s anti-war movement wasn't influenced internally by forces outside of this country. Many honest people were involved but some of the inner circle of these movements had an agenda that would have surprised the rank and file.
And this if true, too, for all sides of issues.

Don't you think its a convenient coincidence, just at the point when based on the increase of carbon fuels has increased to the point when alternatives start to make sense, that political opportunists pop up to take credit for a social and infrastructure changeover that would occur for no other reason but economics?
But rank and file dupes feel the need to buy into the religious doomsday scenarios.

If you're really concerned with reducing dangerous material from the environment then don't buy those products that contain them. Don't participate in the pollution society.
I dare say if you got away from those products in question, and the non-news they offer, you might think humorous all paranoia and guilt is promoted.

But...You do participate so you must hate yourself and others that do. The answer to it all is "more control."

You're right that some people have hidden agendas, but it's unbelievably naive on your part to put everybody in the same basket.

Or to believe every single group/individual in favour of reducing use of hazardous materials are just out for more power. It's a conspiracy theory that just doesn't fly.

And as long as your first argument in a debate is resorting to name calling, you're just not going to be a big help in improving things.

You won't be that important.

"Many honest people were involved" ...this quote from my last post. There's no question there are earnest people with honest opinions. This is what I was implying with the above quote. But too often things swing out of control, or at least beyond the initial purpose or intention.

I apologize for saying you were not important. It rereading it it sounds harsher than it should. In the same vein I am not important. But with honest voices speaking as a group opinions become more important.

Maintaining validity without being highjacked by opportunists, I feel, is exceedingly difficult.

you spend WAY too much time trying to get your senseless point across on some silly comments section...if you want to cry about greenpeace then go blog n' flame about it somewhere else...and yeah, get a girlfriend so you can get laid and realx...

as for the actual topics, i still have yet to see solid proof of the 16GB iPhone...

Since Apple has dropped the computer out of there name it's kinda went down hill. Not only with the iPhone but with it's support for it's customers and our needs.
There is no support for Canons new 40D RAW files in Aperture mean while Adobe has supported it for since it's release as well as Sony's new A-700.
Where is the support from Apple here.

Help me with this...why should we care what Greenpeace says. They are about as relevent as the Knitting Club down the street,

avatar

Editdroid

Well, we should care. Granted, Greenpeace sometimes use over-the-top antics to get attention to their issues, but we do need independent parties to keep businesses in check.

There are rules and regulations that are in place to try and keep hazardous materials to a minimum and if Apple has crossed the line, then they should correct the situation.

Billion003

What do you mean "rules to keep companies in check." I tell you what... let's raise the level of hysteria a bit more so we'll be comfortable when we forfeit those all manufacturing jobs overseas. We'll be unemployed or working for someone overseas, but we'll be rigidly proud of ourselves.

What else does someone like you want to "keep in check." And who appointed you sheriff or me?

It's a simple fact that we should be mindful of our impact on the environment - not to mention the impact the chemicals we use have on our own health.

No one is saying we should close down Apple for this! And all those jobs going overseas have nothing to do with the impact of caring for the environment, but rather the simple truth of low-cost labour.

Don't confuse the issues, in your own hysteria and refusal to see the impact of pollution.
