Apple Publicly Admits The iPhone Is Designed Not To Last

By Arjun Walia

Not long ago, a study was published suggesting that Apple deliberately sabotages its old products. The study was performed by student Laura Trucco at Harvard University. By reviewing worldwide searches for “iPhone slow,” she found that this phrase was searched more, by a significant amount, whenever a new iPhone was about to be launched.

Trucco then compared her results to the findings of other searchers for Apple’s competitors’ phones,  such as “Samsung Galaxy slow,” and found that the phrase was not searched for more around the time that a new Samsung phone model was released.

The number of Google searches for “iPhone slow” spiked every time a new phone model was launched and made available to the public.

This isn’t uncommon, as most likely you’ve heard people complain about how their iPhones or Mac laptops continue to get slower over time. The point is, it’s fishy how it always coincides with the launch of Apple’s new products.

Over the past few years, this type of sentiment has been common across social media.

It’s also a common business practice. Goods are made to break, if they weren’t, corporations like Apple wouldn’t really experience much profit. Sure, new applications and features may be added, but a lot of money is probably going to be lost if people’s old iPhones are just as fast, and work just as well as the new ones.

Now, Apple has admitted to the correlation, but provided an explanation. Because older iPhones have aged batteries, the device slows down and doesn’t perform as well because it’s compensating for the poor battery and it spends more energy on trying to avoid forced and unexpected shutdowns, not because they want people to upgrade.

That being said, it’s quite clear that they do want people to upgrade, it’s the only way to sustain the company. They must keep releasing new products every single year, and the truth is, they probably already have a few years worth of products lined up so they can keep ahead of themselves.

In a statement to Buzzfeed, Apple said:

Our goal is to deliver the best experience for customers, which includes overall performance and prolonging the life of their devices. Lithium-ion batteries become less capable of supplying peak current demands when in cold conditions, have a low battery charge or as they age over time, which can result in the device unexpectedly shutting down to protect its electronic components.

Last year we released a feature for iPhone 6, iPhone 6s and iPhone SE to smooth out the instantaneous peaks only when needed to prevent the device from unexpectedly shutting down during these conditions. We’ve now extended that feature to iPhone 7 with iOS 11.2, and plan to add support for other products in the future.”

So what’s the solution to your slow iPhone? Get a new battery. That being said, they are purposefully designing their phones and providing you updates in accordance with planned obsolescence.

Domestic Terrorists Vandalize Christopher Columbus Statues Across America

Domestic terrorists celebrated Columbus Day by vandalizing statues of Christopher Columbus.

Several anti-fascist terrorist groups were openly stating that they had plans to vandalize statues of Christopher Columbus on Columbus Day.  Based on the fact that Columbus statues were vandalized across America, the people associated with these domestic terrorist groups need to be rounded up and arrested.

Here’s just some of the vandalism that occurred.

RT:

Statues of Christopher Columbus, thanks to whom Europeans discovered and colonized the Americas, were vandalized in Illinois, Rhode Island and in three cities in Connecticut on the national holiday dedicated to his memory.

The Columbus statue in Chicago’s Arrigo Park was splattered with red paint, and words “mass murderer” and “decolonise” were spray-painted on the sidewalk next to the monument.

This is a continuation of the Jewish Communist war against White Europeans. In certain parts of the country, municipalities have already changed Columbus Day into Indigenous Peoples Day.

NY Post:

Is it time to say arrivederci to Christopher Columbus?

A movement to abolish Columbus Day and replace it with Indigenous Peoples Day has gained momentum in some parts of the US, with Los Angeles in August becoming the biggest city yet to decide to stop honoring the Italian explorer and instead recognize victims of colonialism.

Austin, Texas, followed suit Thursday. It joined cities including San Francisco, Seattle and Denver, which had previously booted Columbus in favor of Indigenous Peoples Day.

But the gesture to recognize indigenous people rather than the man who opened the Americas to European domination also has prompted howls of outrage from some Italian-Americans, who say eliminating their festival of ethnic pride is culturally insensitive, too.

Indigenous Peoples Day is a joke. The accomplishments of Columbus far outweigh the collective value of red savages who continually slaughtered each other with tomahawks.

The Communists have put out this narrative that everything about the colonial era was terrible. They claim that it was just White people running around the world slaughtering natives. The history is far more complex than that. Colonialism actually brought a higher standard of living to many native populations. It is also necessary to recognize that these native populations weren’t so innocent. Many were violent and this resulted in battles and wars.

It was good to see that the President fully recognized Columbus Day and paid no attention to this Indigenous Peoples Day garbage.

The bottom line is that these terrorists are not going to rest until every reference to European history is erased. Defacing statues of Columbus is just another part of this insane war they are waging. They would prefer to celebrate idiotic monkeys and savages instead of White men who achieved great things. These people are insane and they’re just going to get crazier. We are going to have to deal with them sooner rather than later.

Many Venezuelan Doctors Have Now Become $25 An Hour Prostitutes

When America collapses, we will see this in the most diverse cities.

In Venezuela, they were teachers and doctors. To buy food, they became prostitutes.

September 22, 2017 12:08 PM

The less fortunate find themselves walking across the border into Colombia looking for a way, any way, to keep themselves and their families fed. A recent study suggested as many as 350,000 Venezuelans had entered Colombia in the last six years.

But with jobs scarce, many young — and not so young — women are turning to the world’s oldest profession to make ends meet.

All 12 women who work at this brothel in Arauca, Colombia are from Venezuela. As Venezuela’s economic crisis continues to grind on, many Venezuelan women have turned to the sex trade in neighboring Colombia to make ends meet.

Dayana, a 30-year-old mother of four, nursed a beer as she watched potential clients walk down the dirt road that runs in front of wooden shacks, bars and bordellos. Dressed for work in brightly colored spandex, Dayana said she used to be the manager of a food-processing plant on the outskirts of Caracas.

But that job disappeared after the government seized the factory and “looted it,” she said.

Seven months ago, struggling to put food on the table, she came to Colombia looking for work. Without an employment permit, she found herself working as a prostitute in the capital, Bogotá. While the money was better there, she eventually moved to Arauca, a cattle town of 260,000 people along the border with Venezuela, because it was easier to send food back to her children in Caracas.

The previous night, her sister had traveled by bus for 18 hours from Caracas to pick up a bundle of groceries that Dayana had purchased — pasta, tuna, rice, cooking oil — and then immediately jumped on a bus back home.

“If you had told me four years ago that I would be here, doing this, I wouldn’t have believed you,” said Dayana, who asked that her last name not be used. “But we’ve gone from crisis to crisis to crisis, and now look where we are.”

“The Venezuelan people are starving and their country is collapsing,” President Donald Trump stated before the United Nations on Sept. 19, 2017. He later called on other countries to do more to address the crisis in Venezuela under the dictatorship of Nicolas Maduro which “has inflicted terrible misery and suffering on the good people of that country.”

With inflation running in excess of 700 percent and the bolivar currency in free fall, finding food and medicine in Venezuela has become a frustrating, time-consuming task. Dayana said she often would spend four to six hours waiting in line hoping to buy a bag of flour. Other times she was forced to buy food on the black market at exorbitant rates. Hunger in Venezuela is rampant.

That has fueled a scramble to earn hard currency — Colombian pesos or, even better, the U.S. dollar, which is the legal tender of Ecuador and Panama.

Dayana said that on a good night she makes the equivalent of $50 to $100, selling her services 20 minutes at a time.

“Prostitution obviously isn’t a good job,” she said. “But I’m thankful for it, because it’s allowing me to buy food and support my family.”

Selling sex is legal in Colombia, and even small towns have red-light districts where authorities look the other way. So while immigration police were actively hunting down Venezuelans selling trinkets and panhandling in Arauca’s central square, the women along brothel row said they were rarely harassed.

Marta Muñoz runs the Casa de la Mujer, a municipal program that focuses on women’s health and rights. She said that prostitution is something of a blind spot for local authorities who are more focused on blatant crimes, like child trafficking, rape and the abuse of minors.

“I know that some of them are being paid unfairly and being treated very poorly,” Muñoz said of the Venezuelan prostitutes. “But how do we protect them without strong public policies?”

Sánchez and others in the sex industry say Venezuelans dominate the trade now because they’re willing to work for less pay.

“I would say 99 percent of the prostitutes in this town are Venezuelan,” he said. All 12 of the women who work for him are from the other side of the border.

It’s not just a border phenomenon. Fidelia Suarez, the president of Colombia’s Union of Sex Workers, said her organization has seen a dramatic influx of “Venezuelan women and men working in the sex trade” across the country.

While it’s impossible to quantify how many might be working in the trade, Suarez said her organization is trying to safeguard the vulnerable migrants.

“We want to make sure they’re not being harassed by authorities or taken advantage of,” she said. “Being sexually exploited is very different than being a sex worker.”

In a sense, Venezuela’s economic crisis has been so severe that it has even upended long-held social norms.

Marili, a 47-year-old grandmother and former teacher, said there was a time when she would have been ashamed to admit she’s a prostitute. Now she says she’s grateful to have a job that allows her to buy hypertension medication for her mother back in Caracas.

“We’re all just women who are working to support our families,” she said. “I refuse to criticize anyone, including myself. We all have to work.”

Bars and brothels line the street in Arauca, Colombia. Those who work in the sex industry, say almost all of the prostitutes are from Venezuela — another indication of that country’s deep economic crisis.

Both Marili and Dayana said they told their families how they make a living. “I don’t like to keep secrets,” Dayana said.

Even Sánchez, the 60-year-old brothel owner, says he was forced into the business by the Venezuelan crisis. Like many Colombians, Sánchez moved to the neighboring country 30 years ago, when the oil rich nation was booming economically and Colombia was mired in violence.

There, he had solid work in Caracas repainting cars. When the crisis killed that job several years ago, he began smuggling Venezuelan wood and its cheaper-than-water gasoline into Colombia.

Eventually, things got so bad he decided to return to Colombia permanently. He and his wife opened the brothel, called “Show Malilo Night Club.” Sánchez’s nickname is Malilo.

“This place is mine, thank God,” he said of the modest building, strung with Christmas lights to provide ambiance. “But it hurts me deeply what’s happening over there.”

Marili said the couple had been lifesavers — giving her a place to stay and a way to make a living.

“Not just anyone will lend you a hand,” she said. “These people are humanitarians.”

There seems to be no end in sight for Venezuela’s economic pain. Last month, the Trump administration restricted Caracas’ ability to borrow money from American creditors, which will undoubtedly deepen the crisis. And yet, President Nicolás Maduro has been digging in, avoiding the economic reforms that economists say are necessary.

Dayana dreams of a day when she’ll be able to go home and start a small clothing boutique. Asked when she thought that might happen, she shook her head.

“No one knows,” she said. “We just have to be patient.”

Why Internment Camps Are Necessary: A St. Louis-Inspired Visual Argument

White Man,

No matter how many times President Cuck pushes the idea of saluting the same “beautiful red, white, and blue flag,” and no matter how many times you push unity, these people are going to hate you.

They will continuously agitate against you, will constantly plot against you, and will pray to whatever it is they believe every single night that the day may soon arrive when they will be able to kill you.

They wish to rape your women, torture your children, and make you watch before they slit your throat.

They are tearing down your history before your eyes, and will soon turn to the real flesh and blood thing once stone, metal, and concrete becomes boring.

Even if you were to somehow seize control of the state and push for repatriation/deportations, you would have these feral creatures strike hard while the details were hashed out.

No, the only places these critters could be safely contained would be inside properly-constructed camps sealed by barbed wire, guard towers, and soldiers aplenty.

This would of course be a temporary measure, and yes, I suppose you would have to send in rations from time to time, but it’s probably the only measure that would work in the long-term.

Otherwise, you might as well start explaining to your children that what you are about to witness will soon become a daily feature all across this crumbling nation.

And I think we found one of the potential (((ringleaders))) of this specific semi-riot, because all of a sudden it smells quite like certain parts of New York City, Miami, or Boston up in here.

It’s nature and nature knows how to correct an anomaly. Do you really want these pathetic, weakling white zombies, who are so easily manipulated by the government/media/entertainment, to breed with sturdy and clear-headed whites? No way! Trust me, our people are being strengthened and reinforced by being culled of our defective. It’s a win-win. We get rid of our worst and other groups reap the “benefits”!

If that dark day ever comes when Whites become a minority in the USA, an attempt at our extermination is guaranteed. The magical thinking orcs and antifa have themselves convinced that once their hated overlords are displaced then everything will be a multi-culti utopia. We all know that this is bullshit, and that the inferior groups will remain inferior whether they’re calling the shots or not (and let’s be realistic, the idea of niggers running the near-future USA is ludicrous. Jews, Chinese, Indians, and High caste Hispanics will be locked in a power struggle while the country deteriorates), but as the unhappy dindu and mestizo/Indio remain mired in failure despite the ending of “White Privilege,” they’ll still have to blame the evil Whitey for their plight. Whoever the elites are at that time will encourage the demonization of Huwhyte remnant in order to distract the seething hordes of Mordor from tearing up the place.

More on NERES centers later.
