Apple and Microsoft are making junk

Gone are the screws that used to make electronic products fixable and upgradeable. Now everything is held together with strong glue. Prying open is not an option. Something breaks, throw the whole thing away.

You know we are going backward when people are paying a premium for older, fixable products.

Apple was shamed into improving its use of materials, greening its laptops by making them of recyclable aluminum and glass. The shame wore of pretty quickly, didn’t it? Today’s offerings are worse than ever.

Stop grinning, Samsung and the rest. You think you’re any better?
