If you can't fix it, you don't own it Kyle Wiens co-founder of iFixit
Think about those words. You purchased that item it should be yours but the company by making it impossible to fix yourself says nope, its not.
This is how we end up being a throw away society. I don't know how many coffee machines I went through before I finally said 'enough' and purchased a french press which has lasted longer than 3 of the machines and still going strong. If we continue purchasing the same things over and over again isn't it time to rethink how we purchase, choosing companies that aren't afraid of us fixing instead of buying over and over again or maybe a simpler plan is to have a local repair cafe.
