    What to do with old iPhones

    You'll need a few more than a couple. So ask your friends and family if they have any sitting in a drawer.



    10,000. That's a few million dollars worth.

    We had a Samsung washer. One of the few things I ever got an extended warranty on. A little over a year later it was busted. It started making more noise than normal for awhile. Then it started sounding like it was out of balance all of the time. Then it got worse. It would fill and not drain, made a lot of noise when it would spin (rarely did spin after awhile) and required 2-3 spins to get the water out of clothes when it would work. We called about it. They brought another one instead of fixing the old one. The guy that brought it said he'd never heard of a Samsung having problems before.

    Earlier this year, the replacement did the exact same thing. We replaced it with a Maytag (genuine USA product made in some foreign country). It's noisier. But it has an agitator which the Samsung didn't. I suspect that's part of the problem.

    Where my wife works they use a washer. It was replaced with another model without an agitator (Kenmore or something). It's been there maybe 3 months now, and she says it's starting to sound just like the Samsung did before it went out completely both times.

    I'll never buy another product with no agitator.

    But on the subject of Samsung, I stopped with them, too. When I was in Korea Samsung was considered inferior by a lot of Koreans. They preferred Gold Star (I think they renamed themselves to LG). 25-30 years later I figured Samsung had gotten their act together. Especially since they seemed to have a decent reputation. Bought a couple of phones, no problems. Got 5 different TVs, all OK. Got the washer. Bought a tablet. The tablet was mediocre, the washer went out twice, both phones ended up having major hardware problems (one was replaced with another Samsung that's not doing bad so far), one of the TVs doesn't have headphone audio (found out when trying to add external speakers, so didn't know it for awhile) and another TV will go completely black screen and not come back if I try to adjust the volume just as the screen goes dark (I have to turn it off and back on to correct it). One of the TVs was used as a monitor (no sound output needed) and another one only gets turned on a few times a year. So maybe they have problems now I'm not aware of. But that leaves one working that I don't think has anything wrong with it.


    No more Samsung products. All washers will have an agitator. No exceptions.

    I had a front load...it last 5 months. The moldy smell was awful  on the door seal.    I took a loss on that one but I get severe headaches from mold.
