Apple – dealing with

This is part of an article, dated 3 Mar. 2020, entitled “Australian iPhone users get no payment from US battery settlement,” – use this link to go to the article in full, (if you are a subscriber to The Australian.)

To us, this doesn’t seem to make the slightest sense – is it more of Apple being tricky and devious?

Undeniable claim: Apple intentionally slowed down older phones – but why?

It’s said that this was done to “preserve batteries.” But what would have been in it for Apple if batteries lasted longer, and why, as it would appear, weren’t informed of this.

It would seem infinitely more likely that it was so people would think, “Oops, my iPhone is getting slower! I’d better buy a new one.”

In relation to this, see the last paragraph of what’s shown above.

This, on top of the fact that Australian Apple users are not to be compensated in any way for ways in which they may have suffered from conduct deemed to be serious enough for Apple to have had a $US500m penalty on it.

People and organisations into ordinary emails

To us the best people and organisations to deal with have ordinary email addresses readily available and are into emails, and vice versa – those who have ordinary email addresses readily available  and are into emails are the best people and organisations to deal with.

To us, Wesfarmers is such an interesting example of this. According to the Wikipedia article on it, Wesfarmers has 223,000 employees, yet it has an ordinary email address readily available – info@wesfarmers.com.au – which can be located by clicking on “contact” on it’s website. And various of our readers have claimed that it has people standing by who are so helpful if this email address is used to send emails seeking assistance in dealing with it and/or any of it’s subsidiaries, of which there are about 40.

Telstra – dealing with

One of our readers claims he was dealing with Telstra in the 1960s, and that in those days the only way to get new phone lines connected was to bribe one of their employees!!!

If anyone is stupid enough to be using Telstra these days, they’re probably best off sending snail mails to PO Box 9901, Melbourne, Victoria, 3001! – nothing else seems to work!!!

Telstra – dealing with

We’ve just come across this on the internet.

What a feeble excuse!!

We’ve been obsessed with finding the best people and organisations to deal with and avoiding those who may not be the best since 1976, since an incident with bricklayers.

Fortunately, the internet has since come along which makes things so much easier, in fact, made it simple.

Rule number 1. Other things being equal, only deal with people and organisations who have an ordinary email address readily available – in our experience, those who only have email forms and faxes are not worth bothering with.

(Occasionally it may be worthwhile to consider using those who only have an email form – but if you use their email form to send them send something and any responses don’t include an ordinary email address you can use in the future – which is often the case with government departments – they certainly won’t be worth bothering with. The problem with Government departments, of course, is that they’re often monopolies, so you don’t have a choice.)

Rule number 2. Deal with those who provide the best responses to emails you send them.

If anyone is stupid enough to be using Telstra, they’re probably best off sending snail mails to PO Box 9901, Melbourne, Victoria, 3001.

More later.

Getting help in making the transition from being an Apple person to becoming a Microsoft person

One of our readers says that in 1980, when one of his sons was 12, he bought him an Apple 2 computer, and that from the moment he got it he used to work on it until 1 and 2 in the morning, and 40 years later, (he’s obviously in his 50s now,) he’s had a great career in computers and computing, always as an Apple person, – up until about 12 months ago, when he decided to become a Microsoft person instead. And when he was asked recently if he’d had any regrets about making the change, his response was, “Not for a moment!”

Obviously, the fact that Apple support is so atrocious would have been a factor.

Obviously, if any of our readers are thinking of making the same transition, he could probably help them a great deal.

If you are one of them, email us at info@questionsmisc.info, and we’ll let you have his contact details.

Foxtel – dealing with 2

Further to this post, dated 20 Apr. 2020, in which we described how these incompetents expected one of our readers to wait on the phone for more than an hour if he wanted help that might enable him to start viewing things on Foxtel again, explaining that the Coronavirus had left them short of staff!!!!!!!! our reader reports further that on 9 Apr. 2o20, i.e. 20 days later, he received a text from Foxtel complaining that they hadn’t received a payment which was due on 31 Mar. 2020, when, by now, he hadn’t been able access anything on Foxtel for nearly a month, but adding, “Pleased be advised that if you need to call us we are experiencing longer than normal wait times currently.” STILL???!!! So it would seem reasonable to expect that nothing has changed in nearly 3 weeks! And another week has now gone by, without him making any further attempts to get their help – he says that he’s got better things to do with his time.

But wait! In the middle of typing this, we got a phone call from 0490 240 000 – probably Foxtel – which we missed accepting by just a couple of seconds, and when we rang straight back we were told, “We are unable to take your call at present!”

Presumably things will eventually be sorted out for our reader and others and they will be viewing things on Foxtel again, even if it takes 6 months – we can all live without Foxtel.

But what makes us burst out laughing is they have been claiming recently that Foxtel would be a good way to connect to the NBN??????!!!!!!!!

Readers, wouldn’t you agree that anyone who thinks this might be the case must be stark raving mad!
