“I’m sorry, I don’t know what that means”
Mighty suspicious. A good reason to go Android.
The i phone 8 came out in September 2017. I’m surprised Lemont is still using it. The 13 is a big galoot. Too big for my shirt pocket. I’ll stick with SE 2020 version.
Slowing down the phones was supposed to improve battery life.
Don’t know about Apple support for iPhones. I recently had an issue with the OS on my Mac Book and Apple provided free phone support for as long as it took to resolve even though the computer was long out of warranty.
Except for the non-portability issue, land lines aren’t so bad.
This comic is trying to be funny, not accurate.
The iPhone 8 is five years old. After daily recharges for five years, a phone battery is simply worn out. It’s the equivalent of a car with 200,000 miles.
At some point, the battery can no longer provide enough current to supply the CPU during peak demand. When that happens, the phone will reboot. Afterward, the iPhone will ask if you want to slow down your phone so it stops crashing. You don’t have to, but the hardware problem will persist.
One option to revamp a 5-year-old iPhone is to replace the battery. This is a viable option because Apple still provides operating system updates for phones that are 5 years old.
Or, obviously, you can replace the whole phone.
Such a putz! That’s a six year old battery! He’s pushed through the 400 charging cycles.
And that’s a twenty year old iMac G4! Running a fifteen year old OS! Totally unsafe on the internet!
Stop your whining, Darrin!
What’s a landline?
Portable landline. Short-range personal (not particularly private) rf-connected landline.
Message for Darrin Bell: I know these kinds of strips have run for years but “How may I hinder you?” is still one of my favorite lines of the entire series
No icrap for me. Still on my 2 year old Kyocera flipper. When I upgrade it WILL be a quantum leap. I may get the fold open one so I can reasonably read comics on the go.
Zapple Records was a subsidiary of The Beatles’ Apple Records that lasted only from February through June, 1969. Zapple was “thunk up” by George Harrison, and the short-lived label only released two albums — one by John & Yoko and one by Harrison. The label was intended for avant garde music and spoken word releases. It was actually Allen Klein (of course) who “hindered” the label out of existence.
