So people that own cars should be mechanics?
What about a house? do I need to know about plumbing, electricity and such?
If I want a cellphone do I need to study RF or electronics?

I know even more than the basics on stuff I own, but most people don't (and don't care).

So those people should all be using public transportation and rent their places (and not own any electronics and other stuff) ?

Excuse me, but the iphone 4 I'm using (gift from as friend) has a scratch near the top edge from when he fell down on it while biking (he weighs around 240). His jeans did not survive the fall, the phone did.

My old 3G never had any kind of screen protector on it and survived without a scratch on the front for years...

I'm still using an old Core2Duo (2.53 running at 3.8). It *only* has 4GB, but I put in and SSD and an ATI 6770 a couple years ago. Does everything I need, the only things it has problems running are recent games, not a reason to upgrade in my case. Many components got upgraded from machines found in the trash.

For the last 6 years the only part I paid for was my 3TB HDD (recording OTA TV takes around 8GB/hour)
