Personally, I’d also like to extend this to laptops. As a Surface owner (who now regrets it) whose device’s battery is basically done for after just three years as a daily driver, fuck Microsoft and their impossible-to-open computers (fuck impossible-to-open electronics in general).

I think they should standardise the power cable plug also! Isn’t USB-C supposed to be able to do that?

They’re also trying to do that actually.

The EU can generally go fuck itself, but I’m 158.3 gajillionty percent behind anyone who forces phone manufacturers to make batteries replaceable again.

Why?

Obviously I’m painting with a hilariously wide brush here, because I know and have otherwise met a fuckton of Europeans I love (I’ve been to Europe more times than I can remember), but generally speaking, especially online, they’re a bunch of self-righteous assholes, and their main “tech industry” consists of trying to regulate and tax the American tech companies they would never admit they wish they had because they missed the boat (often justifying it from shore with said bullshit self-righteousness).

I don’t think internet trolls are a fair assessment of Europeans, but I don’t personally know many so I cannot comment on their general personal views of the EU.

Many of their regulations are designed to protect people rather than profits, like the GDPR, which is a clearly unprofitable law. And I’m personally of the camp that thinks mega-corporations are taxed far too little in America, Europe and around the world.
