Hey Lifehacker, I have a contract phone with Telstra that has just been sent off for its third repair. I thought that under law and carrier policy companies have to give you a new handset if it’s not fixed after three attempts. If they do replace it, do I have the right to request a different handset? Can they just give you any type of phone they like, or do I have any rights to choose it myself or request a different handset?
In the past week, Ryan Holiday read seven books, flew from Austin to Atlanta to Miami to Atlanta to LA to Maui, and juggled two demanding jobs: director of marketing at the controversial clothing retailer American Apparel, and partner at creative marketing company StoryArk.

I only care that he’s so dumb because he regularly affects my work, but obviously someone thought he was smart enough to hire. What can I do?
