Thoughts on the new iPad from a DIY repair standpoint
I'm extremely disappointed with the fact that Apple changed virtually nothing. These things aren't any more serviceable than the iPad 2. That's frustrating for anyone who wants to DIY their own device or runs a business repairing these.
I don't think I'd be as irritated with it if Apple actually bothered to "fix" iPads instead of charging an arm and a leg and swapping them out. Most of them could be salvaged and fixed. I'm more concerned with how they are looking at their customers and the environmental issues concerning it.
Anyone else a bit peeved at the design aspects regarding servicing them?
