Ya know I'm getting a bit fed up with all the "engineers" touting that this fix is standard throughout the electronics industry and that we, as consumers, should just deal with it. Well to you I say "stick it where the sun doesn't shine."
Yes I understand you have spent a lot of money and time and sweat on your education and I'm just a poor blue-collar shmuck. I know you have a pretty plaque on the wall that 'says' you know what you are doing. You might even have a sticker on your drivers license to help you convince the cops you are smart. So what.
Don't come on here and try to convince us mere mortals that this is sufficient and 'don't open your computers' because there is tape all inside it. You know what? I have opened my computer...I build my own computers and THERE ISN'T A STITCH OF TAPE ANYWHERE INSIDE IT. Not one small piece.
What you guys are trying to do is, convince the consumer that your way of doing things is sufficient and that our wee-bit of knowlege on the matter is laughable. Shall we revisit your way of doing things? 1. Do it cheaply. 2. Do is sufficiently 3. Do it 'just enough' to make it work. 4. Hope the customer doesn't find out that your company charges a premium for such a mickey mouse fix. 5. Collect a paycheck and straighten the plaque on the wall.
Well I got news for you guys. It's the consumer that decides whether it's good enough. WE decide with our pocketbooks. YOU get to go redesign it if WE tell you it isn't.
I work with engineers everyday. Not in the electronics field, but the manufacturing field. And I'm here to tell you, you guys F@#* stuff up more than you help. Constant rework and on the fly fixes by the guy without the degree while the guy with the degree looks down smugly over his glasses and his CATIA program; never actually putting things together.
Tape. That's the fix for a $3500.00 camera light leak issue. Personally I'm disgusted and as consumers we shouldn't have to settle for it.
They couldn't design it correctly to begin with, so they hot patched it. And you engineer types claim we should be thrilled.
Just one question: If you engineer types are so smart why the heck does the camera need to be fixed with tape to correct how it was engineered?
