I hate to break it to you all, but I did a few minutes of research on the etymology and found that apparently the “cheque” spelling only dates to 1828...you know, 50ish years AFTER we threw you lot off. Before that it was spelled “check”. So don’t blame us or Mr. Webster if you decided to invent a new spelling and we ignored it.

The news isn’t that Motorola is selling a toolkit; iFixit includes this exact set of tools with their iPhone screen repair kits (which I was quite pleased with — a nice step up from the tools they used to include). The real news is that Motorola is supplying OEM *parts* to iFixit, instead of iFixit having to source reliable third-party parts
