Rafe Colburn, commenting on Kyle Wiens’ Unfixable, Unhackable, Untenable:

What I like about his piece is that he doesn’t place the blame on Apple. Instead, he puts it on consumers.

Exactly. It’s what made Kyle’s article worth responding to in the first place.

Says Rafe:

I know a lot of people think that computers (and many other products) are becoming less maker-friendly because greedy companies want to get more money for parts and labor, or even better, shorten the upgrade cycle and sell more computers…

I doubt that is ever really the case.

Exactly again.

Conspiracy theories reside at local minima in the landscape of human thought. Without energy, it’s easy to get trapped in them.
