Check your forum… I’ve just read a recent post of someone wanting to repair their FP2… most parts NOT available in the FP shop… the irony!

Don’t blame me :wink: I’m just sharing an article.

No blame here… just a recent buyer of the product mentioned in the article stating the exact opposite of the articles content…

Yes I’ve seen ~ yet much like the Fairphone I wouldn’t recommend either to any :cry:

  • Everyone ‘could’ watch :question:
  • Most phone users are busy taking selfies :slight_smile:
  • Some people already know and don’t want to be reminded :see_no_evil:
  • Some Fairphone owners may look at it and feel uncomfortable :scream: :
  • A few users wish they weren’t consumesr where anyone and anything suffers at their expense. :om:
  • Not a single person will stop exploitation. :

No, should is what I wanted to say, not could and you dont need to agree to that. My opion is mine, yours is yours, no need to agree.

I did get your tone, I just can’t sit by and agree :slight_smile:

Maybe it’s myEnglish interpretation and use, [should’] which is a directive, a command an authoritative control.

Context matters! Typically must is a stronger form than should, however in some circumstances, should is used as an absolute command but is simply ‘softer’ or more polite

But I see that a lot of people see ‘should’ as advice, but nevertheless a bit pushy.

Sadly I hate the word. I’ve been told a lot of what I should and should not do.

A problem with written text is that it is black and white there is no choice, i.e. text can seem authoritative. So when I use words that can have such a ‘definitive’ character I use quote marks to say ‘something like this’

In speech telling someone they should do something although authoritative can be challenged and of course there can be better context and tone to moderate the meaning.

Ok, it’s a must-see for you then :wink: .

Yes I had already seen it. It just re-enforced my disgust and my dreams/nightmares.

Ignorance is bliss, and if you have lost ignorance there are always ways to loose your mind for a while :slight_smile:

I will keep the link so I can torture my friends when they become a little to easy going.

It’s not quite as bad as showing non vegans abattoir work :see_no_evil:

Was buying another phone and saw this chart, thought I share it here:

Posted on Instagram apparently around 14:00 Amsterdam time on 10 May, so I’d expect the announcement on thursday around noon:

I guess many here will have an idea what this might be … :notes:

It’s basically official now. The shop.fairphone.com now has a “Fairbuds XL” category and already offers the first accessory for it:

P.S.: Definitely still needs a length specification. :wink:
