My hate of Apple's products found hope in this bit of news:
Shares of Apple stayed down today following a drop that sent the stock down below $500 for the first time since February.To grasp the roots of my hate of Apple products, read the second point of the Repair Manifesto: Things Should Be Designed So They Can Be Repaired.

The stock ended the day at $501.75, down $18.55 or 3.57 percent.
The cause for the initial drop came from a pair of stories yesterday — one from Japan's Nikkei and another later in the day from The Wall Street Journal — claiming Apple cut its component orders for the iPhone by nearly half last month. The suggestion from both was that demand for Apple's iPhone 5 had declined, causing Apple to slow down on manufacturing orders for more devices.
