The Self-Repair Manifesto

We may earn a commission from links on this page.

It's very annoying that manufacturers design their wares to be simply replaced, instead of repaired. Pitched, instead of patched. Forgotten, instead of fixed. No more.

iFixit has a manifesto describing that you, Mr. or Ms. purchaser of things, have the power to modify and maintain your possessions, no matter what companies say about voiding the warranty. Better pay attention, because someday, if you don't know how to do it yourself, nobody's going to do it for you. [iFixit]
