MacVoices #1107: The Road to Macworld – Kyle Wiens Talks About iFixit’s Mission to Look Inside Everything

The Road to Macworld continues to be a busy one, this time with a conversation with Kyle Wiens, co-founder and CEO of iFixit and the main man of the feature presentation “iFixit live! The Teardown Experts Show Off Apple’s Hardware – From the Inside Out.” Kyle discusses how he got started taking things apart and why being able to do so is important part of evaluating the lifespan and viability of electronics. Apple’s design and manufacturing decisions have impacted consumers’ ability to maintain and repair their devices; Kyle talks about the trends he sees and what they mean, Apple’s affect on the industry and how they compare to others, and how he and his team will attempt live repairs on audience-provided devices at his Macworld session.
