[macworld] Apple confirms it will cease shipping Mac Pro in Europe on 1 March - Page 9  

post #81 of 196
Where is everyone getting children from in this?

Apple don't want to adapt an ageing product so they're pulling it. It's entire lifetime on the market has seen it in foul of this regulation and now the EU government is taking it's belt off, they're pulling it in favour of a newer version later this year (rumoured).

Excuse me, but what's the problem with regulation saying fans need have grilles over their blades?

More than likely, this isn't directed purely at computer fans, as you all are suggesting, but at fans in general. And some fans are pretty damn dangerous - have you ever seen some Delta fans?
Now, of course, they could've worked out an extremely intricate set of regulations, mandating that a grille only need be installed if the blades are of a certain toughness and weight and attain a certain radial velocity so as to be considered dangerous - but I think we can all agree that working out all these intricacies is a stupid task when, for general safety all around, you can just state that grilles must be installed generally on every fan. Which prevents even the stupidest of cases of putting your finger into a fan.

My ceiling fan hurts and does more damage than a computer fan. Next thing you know we'll need a grill on them too.

None of these laws affect the US.

So why bother saying "we'll need this next"? This doesn't affect you at all.

No, not really. This doesn't affect you. There's no point in saying "next we'll need ______" at all because we, i.e. you, don't need to worry your socks about the EU government making safety regulations at all. It won't affect you or your ability to buy things in the US.

Most of the Euro people here don't have a problem with this.

My guess is you never even read the full regulation. Am I right?


Might as well give up. He's got his head in the sand.
