Hardware, Embedded Systems Now this is an interesting case. Late last week news got out that Apple is refusing to repair machines still under AppleCare from customers who smoke, citing health risks from second-hand smoke. Wait, what?

I don't care if people destroy their health by smoking.
What bothers me is the throat pains and asthma bouts I experience when near lit cigarettes.
Years ago I gave up going to jazz clubs because of this.
I remember of an employer who told me: "Freedom is, you let us smoke, and we let you cough".
The situation is getting better, though, as smoking is increasingly banned in public places.
I'd hate to have to handle smoke-impregnated material as part of my job.
Now the Apple case is certainly over the top, but it may be a way to swing the pendulum the other way.
