Response to raccoon (Original post)

14. Phones suck. The Android OS, for example, on my phone can be updated

I only found this out after I bought it. i had to get rid of my previous phone because it could not run the basic apps that I needed it to run (and I'm not a big fan of phone apps; I have the bare minimum for what I need, and I am extremely hesitant to add more.) Nonetheless, I had to get rid of that phone too.

By contrast, I have laptops that are 7 years and older. I maintain tgen myself and take them apart if I need to, generally sourcing spare parts from eBay etc. On occasion, I take them to a local repair shop if I can't figure it out. However, my 7+ year old laptops work fine, even today, unlike my "smart"phones.
