pigrabbitbear writes: "Anyone planning on buying a new iPad should know what they’re getting themselves into by now. In recent years, Apple and other hardware manufacturers have made it liquid-crystal clear that they’re not fond of the idea that customers can tear open and fix products without the help of licensed repair specialists. Even if it’s as easy as ordering a part online and following a few instructions gleaned from a Google search, hardware companies generally seem to prefer we keep the hood closed. It should not be surprising, then, that the latest version of Apple’s much-desired tablet has one “killer” feature that’s finally getting the attention it deserves: A design that stops you from getting inside of it."
