Apple has been hit with class action suit over MacBook, MacBook Pro butterfly switch keyboard failures. The complaint lodged in the Northern District Court of California claims that owners of MacBook models manufactured from 2015 and MacBook Pro models produced from 2016 feating the company's butterfly keyboard mechanism have experienced some type of failure.
This failure in the butterfly keyboard mechanism results in the machines being useless. Furthermore, the report claims that the design of it makes the keystrokes to go unregistered even with small amounts of dust or debris impede normal switch behavior. In extreme cases, the key fails, forcing users to take the machine to the service center or authorized Apple repair facility which would cost a fortune if the laptop is out of warranty.
This suit cites numerous complaints from users posted online, including Apple's own Community Support forums. Apple introduced the butterfly mechanism with its 12-inch MacBook in 2015 and was touted to be "much more precise, and accurate." The butterfly mechanism made its way to Pro machines in 2016 and was said to be responsive and comfortable than the previous version.
A petition on Change.org called on Apple to recall all MacBooks with butterfly switch keyboards, saying the hardware design is inherently flawed. This petition gained over 17,000 signatures in just over a week. ...

After cutting ZTE from U.S. suppliers for violating North Korea and Iran sanctions, American President Donal Trump Tweets reverse course saying that President Xi of China and him are working together to give ZTE a way to get back into the business, fast.
He further says that too many jobs were lost in China and has instructed the Commerce Department to get it done. Last month the US Govt banned ZTE from using American technology for 7 years . The company soon after the ban as responded saying that the verdict is unfair and threatens the survival. It also submitted an application to U.S. Commerce Department seeking suspension of the business ban. ZTE was caught illegally shipping US goods to Iran.
This news was even confirmed by the White House spokeswoman Lindsay Walters saying that the US officials were in contact with Beijing about ZTE. This move underscores the importance of "free, fair, balanced and mutually beneficial relations between the United States and China on issues involving the economy, trade, and investment.
