Just switched around the cases of my #ultimatehackingkeyboard's. Really easy operation, it's designed for user serviceability and has guides for disassembly on the website. Made me think all products should be like this. How many things could be fixed by the end user and not end up at the landfill if there only were proper instructions available!
@nicd I absolutely support this for public works projects and infrastructure that communities rely on. Home users would throw it out anyway. People have no drive to fix, they just want it done.
@ndegruchy I'm quite positive it would have at least some impact, at least for the geekier of us. Brings to my mind the farmers in the US fighting for their right to repair their own tractors.
