Macworld Sucks Customer Reviews and Feedback
Macworld is a web site dedicated to products and software of Apple Inc., published by Mac Publishing, which is headquartered in San Francisco, California. It started life as a print magazine in 1984 and had the largest audited circulation (both total and newsstand) of Macintosh-focused magazines in North America, more than double its nearest competitor, MacLife (formerly MacAddict). Macworld was founded by David Bunnell (publisher) and Andrew Fluegelman (editor). It was the oldest Macintosh magazine still in publication, until September 10, 2014, when IDG, its parent company, announced it was discontinuing the print edition and laid off most of the staff, while continuing an online version.
Jonathan Lee for IDrop News mentioned 5 Apple Scandals You’ll Never Forget, "1. The Plight of Apple’s Chinese Factory Laborers: In 2011, three Foxconn workers were killed in a factory blast that further highlighted the dangerous environments that Apple suppliers had to endure. In the wake of the suicides, Apple drafted and published a set of guidelines for safe and fair working conditions. Unfortunately, the BBC determined during its 2014 follow-up investigation that those standards were routinely breached on the factory floor. Undercover reporters were faced with involuntary overtime work, cramped dormitories, and stressful and exhausting workdays. The reporters also found disturbing evidence that ore mined by children under dangerous conditions in Indonesia could be entering Apple’s supply chain. 2. Touch Disease: Last year, a large number of iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus users began reporting an issue with their devices where a flickering gray bar appeared at the top of their screens, and their entire screens sometimes became unresponsive. The issue even acquired a sinister moniker, “Touch Disease”, misleading though it may be. 3. Apple’s $14 Billion Tax Bill in Ireland: Apple was slapped with a massive $14.5 billion tax bill in Ireland last year, after a two-year investigation by the European Commission determined that the company had received “illegal state aid” from the Irish government in the form of a lower corporate tax rate. 4. Bendghazi: Bendghazi, or Bendgate if you prefer, erupted in 2014 with the debut of the highly anticipated iPhone 6 Plus. Owners of the iPhone 6 Plus found that their aluminum devices had a tendency to bend and warp after they sat down with them in their front pockets. 5. Antennagate:Antennagate was one of the biggest iPhone scandals, partly due to the fact that it occurred during Steve Jobs’ legendary tenure as CEO of Apple. It began with the June 2010 release of the iPhone 4, which was designed with an external antenna wrapped around its rim as a space-saving measure. The issue was that holding your finger across the gap between two antenna segments could interfere with the signal and cause the phone to lose reception, leading to many dropped calls. It was an obvious and significant engineering flaw, but Jobs made things worse for a while by advising users to hold their iPhones differently and downplaying the issue."
