Shortestest version: iPhones are a pain in the ass to repair. God I fucking hate taking them apart.

Your "shortestest" version is not shorter than InBlack's "shortest" version. It is in fact 1600% longer. Therefore the court must reluctantly deny your request to name your short-yet-not-the-shortest reply as "shortestest." May we recommend using the monniker "somewhat short?"

Kind regards,

Judge Creston

The shortesterer version: "Naming request denied!"

Short Version: Apple controls the Iphone parts market and wants you to buy phone insurance for 99$

Really short version: Do you think that 100Billion$ just appeared out of thin air in Ireland?

Shortest version: Greed.

You win!

Its not that simple, for example the article specifically mentions that the Iphone5 is much simpler to repair than the Iphone4 and yet its repair costs are significantly higher.

I bought a Nexus 7 when they first launched, so I paid about $250 for the 16GB model...

(Far too) shortly thereafter, it fell from about waist height and cracked the screen almost from corner to corner. Half the screen still worked, so I could flip it upside down back and forth to get at all the content, but obviously, that's a pain...

Repair costs I looked in to were about $170, and the device had come down to $200 shortly after that anyways, so repairing was (nearly) pointless.

The reason for the high cost, btw, is because you can't just replace the screen, which is just glass; you need to replace the electronic component that is glued to it.

If Microsoft was doing something like this (artificially constraining supply to manipulate prices), they'd already be in court over it. Between this and the amount of articles defending Apple's tax avoidance strategies under the excuse "Well Microsoft does it too!", it's clear the incredible double standard for Apple in the press is alive and well.

Not only is it alive and well in the press, but in legislative governemnt and in the judiciary (recent ruling against Samsung). Looks like Apple has all its holes covered. Hmmm I wonder if that has anything to do with its limitless supply of cash?
