    I don't understand the whole pin/swipe/sign with cards debacle, I can just use the chip just fine every time. I'm Canadian tho, is this an American problem? Did you guys only just recently get chip readers?

    • scarrysbeardy FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold

      It is a fairly recent thing, (at least where I'm at in alaska, like a year or so ago). But he's right that each place is different. Almost everywhere I go has the swipe part and the chip insert part, and there is always a shitty paper hand written sign saying either "swipe only" or "chip reader works". and when there isn't it's a pain in the ass figuring out which one to use. 


      I've also heard that if it has a chip reader, and it doesn't work, that is configured incorrectly and is an easy fix (free from the person they lease the credit reader machine from), but the people running these places find it easier to put a hand written paper sign on. 


      That creates the issue that businesses with working readers have to put their own hand written signs saying that the reader works for people used to defunct readers.

      America is literally dumb as hell with electronics and pay terminals. I have no problem with chip readers and works perfect every time I use it. But yeah I wish America would just get their fucking shit together. I am born in America and can't wait to move out of this country.

    I get that people don't like the idea of omitting the headphone jack, but when it comes down to it, this is one of the few instances in the past 3 or so years where Apple (along with Motorola) have genuinely tried to innovate something. the heaphone jack is a very old standard in tech years, and it isn't without removing it from things that new and better methods present themselves. We have bluetooth earbuds and headsets, and now we're going to see what other standards will arise to cover the loss of the 3.5mm. As someone with a deep interest and passion in technology, I'm personally excited to see how this shakes things up.

      From what I can tell, it seems to be more about who did this. Apple has a bad rap for proprietary nonsense and the headphones being connected with this completely unique, only-used-by-Apple audio jack, is just fueling that same problem. Plus, it doesn't allow for charging and listening to music.

      I'm not an Apple user anyway for various reasons, that's just my take on what seems to be the problem. I understand the outrage but only because it's specific drawbacks. However, you do have a point that it's actually an innovation. It's just poorly executed, I'd say.

    People need to stop saying that apple got rid of the headphone jack to have water and dust resistance. Look at the Samsung galaxy s7, its water resistance and still has a headphone jack.

    Yes Gaf, analog still sounds great. But the 3.5mm has a devestating loss. Play analog: Disc-Amp/speaker-Speaker or use low compressed digital audio-wifi-amp/speaker-speaker.

      I have very self-conscious spacial awareness and even I recline sometimes. I think its all about how you approach it. Check the person behind you, if they seem to be watching a movie or paying attention to the screen, DON'T RECLINE. if they're asleep, IT'S YOUR RIGHT. if you're sure, just ask "Do you mind if I lean my seat back?"

    Not to be the one that supports kid Burnie boiling gasoline, but...

    As far as Backyard Scientist melting aluminium over a bullet, the bullet will not kill anyone. If the bullet is not fired through a barrel, the expanding gasses from the gunpowder will not push the bullet fast enough to hurt anyone. He may hurt himself from the explosion/heat/direct debris, but others are quite safe.

    Opinion:

    Okay but about the iPhone no headphone jack thing, my car doesn't have bluetooth and I enjoy listening to my music through the aux cord and charging my phone at the same time. If you want a waterproof phone, get one of those plastic childrens ones. Your phone should not be in water, so that's irrelevant. That's why I'm annoyed that the headphone jack is gone.

    It's funny how not a lot of people in the US have WhatsApp (none of my friends there have it) but everyone in South Africa uses WhatsApp. Another strange thing that Burnie reminded me of was the swipe and sign instead of chip and pin. Chip and pin has been commonplace in South Africa for as long as I can remember, going to the US, the weirdest thing was having to swipe and sign.

    • ToastyToast77 FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold

      10 months ago

      I rarely see the swipe and sign anymore. I usually see swipe/pin or chip/pin. The chip is annoying though because: 1. the noise to tell you to continue (apparently it means "don't forget your card") sounds like an error noise. 2. It doesn't take any less time than swipe/pin. In fact, I would argue that it takes longer. in the time it's processing the card after a swipe I can put my card away and be ready to put my pin in. with the chip, I have to keep it there and then I have a receipt, card, maybe cash back, and my wallet to deal with all at once.

    The reason i find the lack of head phone jack and forcing people to go to bluetooth is that i dont have the kind of money to buy all this extra stuff for my phone. I like my android because stuff is cheap for it. When things change but prices go up people are going to protest that fact causs we all arent loaded up for that kind of future.

      forcing you to go bluetooth? You can use the lightning headphones or just use the adapter that comes in the box.

      They give you the adapter in the box so you can use other headphones, not only the apple ones. Also it's not bluetooth.

      You can't charge your phone and use wired headphones at the same time, I think that's the main problem people have (hopefully the 7s puts a headphone jack back on the phone)

    I usually don't have anything against sponsor reads (I've got used to them) but this time the 4 ones seemed kind of much. Especially with Pizza Hut that basically interrupted the flow of the conversation 4 times by itself (the read, 2 runner up winners and the winner with the answer). 3 sponsor reads seems to be perfect (at least for me) even if one of them is a Pizza Hut one.
