a series of half truths and lies that only the most ardent idiot apple fanboys would for a second buy.

The real reason - we want to soak you for the cost of more expensive and more complex and more prone to breaking and wearing out types of headsets, and we want to be the ones to sell them and the replacements for them.

Wouldn't really be that difficult to have a blow-up diagram of the product on-line to consult. If a product is simply not user-end repairable then your questions and accusation about this legislation is irrelevant.

What exactly are you objecting to ?

The manufacturers that wish for an advantage would make their products more repairable, more modular, more INTELLIGENT. You'd still be free to buy cheap shit products designed to become quickly obsolete, and people with the intelligence and curiosity to repair their own stuff would actually have a chance to do so.

Instead of this insane race to the bottom this country is on.

Too bad your analogies suck and you don't know anything about what you're talking about. Not an MS fan here, but I at least know wtf I'm talking about when it comes to diagnostics of Windows systems, and the BSOD is still part of that system. Now give MS credit for BSOD's being so rare now that stupid people that repeat lies and never admit their own fuckups, like yourself, thought they no longer exist !

Doctors in the USA are not your friends. They do not care one bit what happens as a result of their collection and submission of your personal, private data. They care about MONEY, and that's it. We have the most expensive and least effective medical care in the world here as a result of doctor-worship, it's time that came to an end and the profiteering off people's suffering along with it.
