Virgos go for tech like this

While I may waste time reading about tech deep dive topics, I'm a basic user.

My life experience has taught me hardware devalues fast & non-repairable/replaceable faster.

Like one of the commenters posted - I try to maximize the life out of hardware.

I DO care about e-waste.

I DO care about extreme environmental issues living in fire/flood/earthquake Northern California. Being able to swap out parts is essential.

I live rural, so DIY is part of my DNA.

When it costs more to have a mobile than a pc, that stirs my ire. Not having the control over the damn thing stokes it further.
