Listen: Apple Fights Proposed Right to Repair Legislation With Warnings of Consumer Harm
"Latest an apple lobbyists. Brennan iphone in meetings with California lawmakers and said the reason we don't want people fixing their phones they could hurt themselves. You could hurt yourself. Yeah. There's nothing like getting that screwdriver wedged into your fingernail. Lithium ion battery because the right to repair isn't about necessarily me opening up my phone. It's about me being able to go to a third party repair facility that has manuals that has parts both of which are withheld by apple and I can get a repair as a result of apples lobbying the Bill that was in front of the California assembly has been pulled. Yeah. I think that this is actually this is really, and it's really funny to think of an apple obvious like running around with an iphone open with like a finger finger finger what does that cut on their fingers? It is a finger cut. But that's not what I meant. But I think the more insidious argument is that a lot of these companies will say that it's a security issue that. Yeah. That like there's a cybersecurity risk in fixing your own your own 'electronic and that raw gonna get hacked. If you release bear part apple used that story in Nebraska, they told a lawmaker there the passing a right to repair Bill would turn the state into a mecca for. Bad actors, criminals and hackers. I don't think that this argument is gonna last any longer. I think in the last couple of hours while we've been talking actually Bernie Sanders just endorsed national right to repair law. Elizabeth Warren's done a to the FTC is taking up the issues. I think apple trying to scare these local lawmakers individual states is not going to keep working good. All right. Good. Can you can only flick so much?"
