    Ok so I love this show but there are reasons we get locked out of software in phones is if we install the wrong thing, the CPU can't work with the OS, that then kills your phone.

    I know Android does this to an extent as well, but I prefer avoiding Apple's monopoly on smart devices because as soon as they're the only smartphone company, they would be able to get by with a lot more of this stuff.

    Something that they actually fail to realize is part of the reason that they do this is because if you mess with their stuff, would could turn it into something even more dangerous. They even said "You will not use this device to create a nuclear device". This completely debunks their whole video. Also, about 97% of the time that there is Hardware, there is Software along with it to make it work. For example, that toaster at the beginning of the video, it used software so that it would make it work. Like for example, if this button is pressed, Turn on the heater. So to say that where-ever there is software that is inside hardware, the company will make you agree with their terms so that we cannot modify it, is really stupid because software is what lets us interact with the hardware and is what makes it work. It is like saying that you cannot modify a Raspberry pi or an Arduino. Give me a break

    "You dont have right to repair our products else warranty is void"
    Has since been ousted as an illigal business practice, but the question is whether or not apple is too big to be governed by a single state anymore.

    • TDplay
      TDplay Month ago

      Warranty void if you manually attempt repair actually makes sense, your repair might actually break the product and you may as well just take advantage of the free repair your warranty offers.

    Idea: Learn how to program than remove these things in the software(in this case the OS) your phone uses and then release the fix on places like GitHub, effectively subverting these things and allowing you to fix your own things.

    at least the stupid licensing things, courts and the ECC have on multiple occasions decided that "you buy it, you own it"
    Also that the 8456384-page EULAs aren't really valid anyway since you cannot reasonably assume everyone reads it
