Re: Ban the un- or barely repairable?
Twenty years ago the EU started making noises about the manufacturer being made responsible for end-of-life recycling for their products. The idea is that then products wouldn't only be designed to be easily manufacturable, but also easily to dismantle into constituent parts.
This is partly why devices are glued together - devices *can* be passed through an oven and easily pulled apart. This is far less labour intensive than employing someone to unscrew dozens of fasteners.
Another reasons is durability and weight, which is why car companies are using glue instead if screws. Screw bosses create stress risers, whereas glue can distribute a load along the whole length of a structural component.
Just because an amateur finds something difficult to do, it doesn't mean that a company with the correct tools and equipment finds it difficult to do.
