I have a dream of a future where all technology is modular, easily replacable, and recyclable.

You phone screen broke? Just replace it and recycle the old one. Your laptop's getting a little slow? Replace the CPU.

This would also require a set of universal adaptors and fittings, so that everything would be compatible with everything else.

And I honestly don't feel like this is a lot to ask?


@InvaderXan Not a lot to ask, but the trend is in the other direction. Less modular, fewer parts the user can replace or service.

Which figures, considering the trend is engineered by the people making more money from people repeatedly buying new things.
