It's me again HODLERS!

Apple is a company I admire I could say because of its interest in Industrial Design, the quality of their products as well their atractive shapes

If you buy Apple, you are paying an extra despite similars for belonging to their identity

Today I was reading and analizing about the Wireless Magic Mouse, and this particular way of being charged

As you can tell, the cable must be attached through at the bottom. But... Why?

Apple's Designers don't appear to be so smart... or are them?

Well, this action prevents you to use the mouse while you charge it

"Ok... so?"

So you can use it in battery mode only, batteries dies as time goes by... and you must buy other mouse

I have told about Planned Obsolescence before and all the companies tries to sell more

They aren't so dumb, but think we are

 

They know you will be atracted with a new design in a couple of years, and wouldn't mind to buy the new model since yours now is boring and doesn't work properly

I can say the shape design as itself is impressive, and shows an evolution and modernization according to its ancestors

"Hey man, nothing prohibit me to buy a wired one" 

And you are right. The only one forbid you to a cheaper, long lasting option, is yourself

What do you think about Apple products?

Why you think Apple is discarding chargers in the new phones packages?

 See you next time!
