    This is a known and very common issue with the flex cable for his generation MBP. In fact, Apple has quietly changed the part midway through production. To my knowledge they have not publicly...

    cwa107, you may want to do some further checking and look into what you have been told.

    ie, check the rebuttal comments from: Difference Between PEX(Polyethylene) and PB(PolyButylene) Piping

    Eek! We have had similar problems in Florida... mostly because the pipes don't seem to hold up as well as they did up north. It is considered to be a "bad thing" to have copper plumbing here. In...

    Yep, we've had a few of those here and there.



    I run 5k three days a week and try to do an organized race now and then. I've put on a bit of weight in recent months, so I'm not as fast as I've...

    Hey Nick. Yep, it's starting to heat up for sure. Humidity is back as of yesterday. It was all I could do to finish a 5k. Hoping I'm good by this weekend as I have a race on Saturday morning.

    It's hard to believe no one has resuscitated this thread since 2017! This used to be one of the most popular threads on the forum.

    So, here goes... how is everybody? What have you been up to?

    Thanks guys. We had many more pictures, but these were some of my favorites. Just figured I'd share my experience in case anyone else plans to visit.
  8. Apple Park and One Infinite Loop visit

    My family returned recently from a visit to California. We covered a lot of ground in a week, starting in LA and later making it up the Pacific Coast Highway and eventually San Francisco. Along the...

    It's been said multiple times that the problems with Apple's butterfly keyboard assembly are related to it not being tolerant of dust and other forms of contamination after long-term use. With that...

    Hi Charlie. While I don't disagree that this is likely a hardware problem, it does appear that the 'Epson Stylus Pro R3000' is a supported model here:

    File management on iOS has always been a struggle, but it's getting better now that Apple introduced their own 'Files' app. This blog article goes into detail on how to interact with it and Zip...

    It's possible that the driver may have been updated inadvertently. Have you tried deleting the printer and re-adding it?

    Another option might be to experiment with an open source driver from the...

    I'm not. Microsoft squandered several opportunities to introduce REAL security in their OS and only made a half-hearted attempt when their hand was forced by an onslaught of a new breed of security...

    That's unfortunate. Thankfully I bought the AppleCare for my 2018-model MBA from the outset, so I know I'll have it in good working order for at least 3 years. Plenty of time to see how reliable the...

    I don't have any complaint with the feel or operation of the keyboard. It's a little noisy, but even that doesn't really bother me, truth be told.

    It's the long-term reliability that concerns me...

    Another great article:

  17. Apple apologizes for continued reliability problems with its MacBook keyboards

    Ugh! I thought the third generation butterfly keyboard was supposed to solve these problems. Sounds like it helps, but doesn't eliminate them. I think I'm keeping a keyboard cover on mine!

    Just me, but I think I'd dig in a bit more. I'd raise a fuss that clearly there was a quality control issue on their part and that you've been without the machine for long enough and now the problem...

    On earlier MBPs, the fans were replaceable without having to remove the heatsink/heat tube assembly. Though you can generally replace the fans themselves, I would be shocked if the replacement...

    RAM, CPU and SSD are all soldered fast to the logic board. It's possible the fans may be separate, but I highly doubt it. I would make a case for a replacement.
  21. I'm surprised they don't just replace the machine...

    I'm surprised they don't just replace the machine at this point. What's left?

    I'd bet dollars to donuts that the thermal problem is related to haphazardly applied thermal paste on the...

    Hate to put a damper on things, but here's a bad experience (that Woot did, fortunately, make right)...

    I bought an iPhone 6S from Woot a couple of years ago for my son. It was advertised as...

    Sounds familiar. I too cut my teeth on a C64, moved up to a string of Amigas, starting with a 600, then a 2000 and eventually a 4000 that I used right up into '99 or so. Today, I even have an Amiga...

    Yes, well, I'm the resident party pooper. I'm an old school hardware guy and in my view, Apple is intent on building cost-reduced, sealed appliances at ever-burgeoning profit margins. This is what...

    Yes, exactly that. They are being continuously cost-reduced, all the while increasing retail prices. The machines are non-upgradeable and mostly non-serviceable.

    The upside of having a repaired...
