    • I work in computer repair and I no longer service Mac computers. Recent Apple computers have been designed to literally short and fry itself. A small cable attached to the casing gets detached and it falls on the motherboard causing it to short.

    • Cloths dryer companies do this too. The fabric softener sheets you put in the dryer eventually coat the insides with a plastic layer causing it to eventually seize up. Usually in two to four years. They could easily prevent this by going back to their old design. Don't use dryer sheets.
