When someone asks me the reason why fascist scum is on the rise worldwide

I've just realized something - when I talk about non-removeable batteries I get the response that it's a necessary design to make the phone water-proof.

But you *can* design a fully water proof phone where only the (user replaceable) battery has lessened water protection. If anything does happens, only the battery will be at risk - and it'll easily replaceable!

Given the current state of Mac hardware in general and MacBook Pros in particular, this is a very dim future ahead. I just cannot accept the abhorrent things Apple calls “keyboards” in their laptops. No hardware upgradability is a no-go for professionals.
