iFixit: Welcome to Repair 2.0

Computers & Mobile

This interesting video — really a commercial for iFixit — has some fascinating things to say that would resonate with makers. Do you see yourself slaving over some 386 trying to get it to work? If iFixit creates a Wikipedia-like repair guide, will you contribute? Leave a comment with your thoughts. [Via bunnie’s blog]

    I think if companies like Google, Dell, HP, etc. got behind this and helped provide some funding to spread the word and maybe funded some full-time ‘seeders’ to add to the database, it could have a reasonable chance of success and life.

      I highly doubt that we can rely on companies for help. Take mobile phone manufacturers as a great example. They are running out of number combinations to name their products, yet they still refuse to make new software updates available on hardware that is more than 6 months old.
