    Apple has way to much power

    Watch this video, Apple using homeland defense to go after repair shops they use aftermarket parts.

    In other news around the world, millions of iphones across the globe are being repaired with counterfeit parts without incident. Those customers are happy as they go about life using their legitimate iphone with an illegal "power button". "Thank God homeland defense stopped .0001% of those illegal iphone repairs" says an unidentifed Android user. "Those counterfeit "buttons" might lead to Apples collapse or exploding iphones" said a Samsung user. When the News Press tried contacting the RIAA for their opinion about suing .0001% of these illegal operations, they had "NO COMMENT".

    Somehow reading apples history of ridiculous claims this does not really surprise me. I find it interesting that their so called "genuine" apple parts are manufactured in China just like the "Counterfeit" parts. Way to waste a bunch of taxpayer money apple.

    Do people really care if it is a genuine part? I sure don't and it doesn't matter as long as it works correctly. Most of these shops offer a warranty, so even if it fails, they will replace it for free.

    RE:
    genuine part = 1. Working Device, 2. No Power Issues, 3. No Screen Color notices, 4. it just works!

    Non-genuine parts = 1. non-genuine battery die fast, fry phone, blow up, 2. screen color is more Gray or just plain ugly, 3. im sure if u bought bad parts u would under stand why MOST genuine parts are better!

    Genuine apple parts are more than the phone worth. Plus I have never heard of any distributor selling oem parts.

    OMG... I just watched this video. What a waste of federal time/money. I guess if they are sitting around and not doing more important stuff they might as well be raiding phone shops in force. <-- Meaning find something better to do!
    Please check the forum and post there before PMing me. I have over 674 unread PMs due to the fact that they are issues which should have been addressed here.

    I agree whole-heartedly. Most phone repair shops are complete ripoffs.
