    I really hope this impacts the devices we’ll have access to in the US.

    Every argument for embedded batteries is a facade for charging customers more for the most common phone repair. All other reasoning is dishonest.

    Fuck yes please.

    Even aside from the repairability, do you know how hard it is to make sure a device without a removable battery is actually off? And not just dark with all the sensors active?

    I miss being able to yank the battery out if the entire phone was unresponsive, as opposed to waiting 20 minutes poking it in the hopes it will respond (when the usual manual options aren’t working)

    I had to get a whole new phone bc my old one wouldn’t stay charged even tho everything else about it worked and being able to replace the battery (without destroying the phone or going to someone that charges 100+ ) would’ve been so nice

    Trump-loving Sen. Tommy Tuberville (R-AL) came out firmly against a ban on lawmakers buying and selling stocks while in office.

    In an interview with the UK Independent newspaper, Tuberville said that he worried fewer quality candidates would run for office if they didn't have the ability to personally profit from it in addition to the generous taxpayer-funded salary they receive.

    ""I think it's ridiculous," Tuberville said. "They might as well start sending robots up here... I think it would really cut back on the amount of people that would want to come up here and serve."

    They aren’t even trying to stop saying the quiet part loudly any more. 

    “Why would anyone want to serve the public in a public service office if they couldn’t game the system and make themselves wealthy?” 

    Dafuq out of here with that.
