Re: Weapons

Huh. There are plenty of 'pieces of sporting equipment' that make good weapons;

even the target gun that you seem to despise would bring a new perspective to you if someone wrapped one around your ear.

Some people can kill you with almost anything, it just takes a little imagination.

Re: You CAN'T use it to distribute fake vouchers

Of course you can- it's not like fake money, where it HAS to be accepted, if the idea is to annoy the shop and/or the customer.

Re: Is there anybody who approves of this?

"...but glue is lighter than any fastener that would stand the strain."

If Apple was as smart as they like people to think they are, then they would design clips to hold everything together that are part of the case and fittings, strong and light, and would be seen as elegant solutions.

Instead- bodge it with glue like a 4-year old's macaroni picture.

Re: Genuine Question:

It's just not very good. Batteries might just fall out after a few years.

However, bear in mind the metal content of all of those screws - recyclers are interested in gold plating, for instance, and that can be microns thick.
