Repairing Beautiful Designs

One thing I admit to loving is the wonderful design of Apple's
products. It's as though they put a lot of thought into how the end
user is going to actually use the device.

But part of using a device is breaking a device

And part of breaking a device is fixing a device.

And anyone that has ever tried to fix an iPod touch or an iPad will
happily admit that it appears no thought was put into repairing some
of the most breakable parts of the devices, namely the screen.

So if you are building something, designing something or arranging
something, please put some consideration into the lives of the people
that need to repair it. All the minimalistic beauty in the world seems
worthless in the middle of trying to repair the unrepairable.
