They will still have to manufacture 1 charger per 1 phone to meet the potential demand, which means same carbon emissions. If people would really care about the planet there would be a law and that law would be called usb-c for the next 100 years, which as you can imagine is an impossibility as it will hamper our precious technological progress…
In any case this particular case is such a trivial matter.
Well, the key-word would be potential.
They would estimate how many users order a charger and produce the respective amount. As time goes by, they can adjust their estimate to their experience.
In the end ‘ticking a box’ is just a slightly different approach than the one practised by Fariphone.
Yes, in time, the supply and demand will even out, but there’s too many factors involved for this idea to be considered to be green in reality and not just on paper.
Do you believe this idea is not a show? What exactly we’re talking about here? Migrating plastic out of chargers into something else is what will happen.
I found two old posts of people mentioning this brand while asking a question but as far as I could see they didn’t write about the aspects that makes those headphone somewhat familiar to the Fairphone
I just wonder, how durable the so called “expansion cards” (i.e. exchangeable expansion ports to be plugged into an USB-C port on the mainboard) of the Framework laptop will be.
Since the bottom module of the FP2 was a kind of weak spot, this might spell trouble, if one is really switching those expansion cards regularly. Though the idea - of course - is striking.
Well it’s about time! But judging by specs the laptop will cost premium. My concern is the hinges, will they last a long time, and thunderbolt support which allows for external gpu. 11th gen Intel is decent but already eclipsed by Apple silicon (which I own).
I think I see a problem here very clearly, we want to innovate the products faster than technology can advance, as well the infrastructure to utilize that new technology, for example a slim smartphone with a removable battery is possible if we wait a bit longer until the graphene batteries gain momentum, but we can’t because of how competitive the market is, so what is the solution? To glue in the battery, to “hide the fat”, and when batteries will become even more slimmer we still will be gluing them to achieve an even slimmer phone (which I assume will also require the use of titanium or magnesium due to fragility).
Good question. Maybe because FP is not sold in US. Maybe because D. Beres is not aware of FP. You might try to update him via writing to email@example.com… EDIT: I’ve moved your post here as I think that altough Fairphone is not mentioned the topic is still related…
