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?

Yes? Well the SUV that you bring your family out into public with is an assault on ME! So is the school bus that your child likely takes to school. I read somewhere that it would take 100 smokers smoking 10 cartons of cigarettes to equal the emissions of a school bus running for a few seconds. Don't know if its true but it sounds right to me.

They've really passed out some potent KoolAid when it comes to the issue of smoking.

The tools commonly used by society to get people from one place to another is NOT the same thing as someone choosing to unnecessarily breath in cigarette smoke. one is necessary for modern society to function in most US cities, the other is not.
