    Well, when you're planning your NY vacation, see if you have any Apple products to get repaired - new batteries? - and take them in to Louis's place, first thing. ;)

    AFAIK you can't get more than 2 years AC+, right? So when you start becoming $-wise sensitive and extend the life of your Apple devices past Apple service time, those 3rd party places all of a sudden become very important.

    Apple will just laugh at you if you bring in an older device for repair... then point you back into the sea of money traps waiting for your gullible attention, designed to suck all of the cash from your beating heart. ;)

    Ha ha ha. I can fix them myself too! ;) I do think this round of apple that we bought will be our last. I am not down with face ID, and no touch ID. The main reason we bought the 8 was for the touch id. If I cannot leave my device on the desk, or dock in the car, and unlock it, I am not owning it!

    If there are no 3rd party markets for parts to be sold in the US, why would China continue to make parts?

    It's a *system* of commerce. If Apple removes 3rd party parts sales and refurbished products from Amazon, Ebay, Craigslist, and every other emergent sales outlet as they appear to take the place of the closed markets, then Apple kills the whole ecosystem that supported keeping old Apple products working.

    Then Apple can suck your soul out through your wallet with maximum profit and efficiency, large stacks of cash at a time, and you have no alternative but to wake up and realize Apple isn't your friend.

    You might as well wake up now while you still have your money, and your soul. ;)

    Ha ha. There are many ways to get parts and the United States is just a small portion of that.

    You don't think once Apple has the US locked up it won't pursue similar suppression of 3rd party components and repairs world-wide?

    Apple's mistakes need to be addressed and stopped right now, before it gets worse.
