Some dude in my office just stated something that sounded like bullshit to me - apparently right before mobile phone companies release their new phones, they send out a software update which effectively starts draining the battery on your current phone, causing you to think you need an upgrade sooner.

What do you reckon?

Do they fuck. Batteries do degrade naturally over time anyway and become less efficient.

Why would a mobile company make you think that brand is shit and getting shitter right before you need to think about picking a mobile?

If anything they'd be sending out updates to make the phone battery better, which they're not, but you see.

He's a knob.

Hand in hand is the only way to land
And always the right way round
Not broken in pieces
Like hated little meeces
How could we miss
Someone as dumb as this

He's also still a knob. I said it sounded like bullshit but some batteries do seem to die a lot quicker than others after upgrades but that's probably because they get caned on tons of apps. My own battery lasts for about a week unless I go online, which seems to suck the life out of it rapidly.

It is a period of the print media and it is the wellspring of data. Individuals should think about the significance of the print media and advance this field and also check my assignment help reviews to find out quality work. You give the extraordinary information about the online networking and it gives the positive perspectives to the perusers.
