“It just works.”
This is the phrase that Steve Jobs trotted out year after year to describe products or services that he was unveiling. The phrase expressed what Apple was all about — selling technology that solved problems with a minimum of fuss and effort on the part of the owner.
Well, Steve is now long gone, and so it the ethos of “it just works Coupon.”
And this is just a selection of the bugs that users have had to contend with over the past few weeks. And it’s not just been limited to the past few weeks. I’ve written at length about how it feels like the quality of software coming out of Apple has deteriorated significantly in recent years.
Now don’t get me wrong, bugs happen. There’s no such thing as perfect code, and sometimes high-profile security vulnerabilities can result in patches being pushed out that are not as well tested as they could be.
I also recognise that Apple has changed almost beyond recognition since Steve was on stage at keynotes telling us how stuff “just works.” Apple’s products are far more complex, the company is selling stuff at a rate that it could have once only dreamt doing, and the security landscape is totally different, and vulnerabilities now put hundreds of millions of users at risk.
But on the other hand, Apple isn’t some budget hardware maker pushing stuff out on a shoestring and scrabbling for a razor-thin profit margin. Apple’s gross profit margin is in the region of 38 percent, a figure that other manufacturers can only dream of.
While using antiperspirants may be mostly safe, some women feel better using natural deodorants. But natural deodorants have their own issues; some people find them less effective, and The New York Times even reports that “there is no definitive evidence that regular deodorants or antiperspirants are worse for your health than natural deodorants.” You may not need to give up on your favorite deodorant, then — but did you know that there’s now an alternative to the traditional stick? These are deodorant pills, and many people on social media claim they magically wipe out body odor (not just armpit smells). So, what exactly are deodorant pills, anyway? And is it a good idea to try them? Read on to find out.
What are deodorant pills?
Dietary supplements that are readily available online or over-the-counter have rapidly grown in popularity as of late. The widely unregulated market of supplements — for everything from weight loss to hair growth to supple skin to stress relief — shows no signs of slowing down, so it’s no surprise that deodorant supplements are having their day in the sun. These pills, available from brands like It Just Works and Body Mint, will supposedly reduce your body odor in a week or less. The companies that sell them also claim that because they’re not topical, the pills will eliminate all kinds of odors, including armpit odor, breath odor, foot odor, and vaginal odor.
Do deodorant pills have any side effects?
As is the case when starting any supplement, you should discuss deodorant pills with your doctor to make sure they won’t interact with any of your medications or have any other adverse side effects. The chlorophyll in deodorant pills may have the strange (but harmless) effect of turning your bowel movements green, so be prepared for that should you decide to try them.
Should I take deodorant pills?
Our body odor naturally changes as we age, which can lead to feelings of embarrassment and frustration. So if you’re finding that your deodorant doesn’t work as well as it used to, you may want to try switching to pills — but if you choose to go this route, you should know that “there is no scientific evidence that these products are effective,” according to dermatologist Dr. Anju Methil. She also points out that there isn’t yet any information available on potential risks.
