I can not go a few days without a mobile phone and I think that this was a stupid Design on the part of Apple.
So they may save a cent per phone or less and over the entire production run will save quite a lot of money but will never come close to paying the legal bills incurred by this bit of penny pinching.
Now I realise that Apple wants to force people to only buy their products down to the batteries and have always done so but this is as bad as M$ market Dominance and how M$ manages the market to suit their own ends. In this case Apple is no better than M$ is and they deserve to pay for their mistakes. Personally speaking the only thing that this has brought home is the need not to touch the Apple product.
