It’s Called Progress, Folks

Garrett Murray:

The reality is, if we want thinner and faster and more amazing computers we have to sacrifice easy repairability and it’s a tradeoff most people are willing to make.

In a similar vein, yet a different context, the Macalope:

Success requires focus. That pretty much sums up why Microsoft hasn’t been very successful for a long time, and why Apple has.

And also Nick Chaves (via Gruber):

Do we imagine that such progress is achieved through the kind of Luddite thinking that leads people to value “hackability” over never-before-achieved levels of precision and portability?
