🔧 New York made history this year and became the first U.S. state to pass a #RightToRepair bill. Now we need it signed into law. #R2R would allow NYers to make inexpensive, cheap repairs to devices, and: 💸 Save NYers $$ 🌍 Reduce carbon emissions 📈 Grow small repair shops

Finally replaced a fan in my Apple Airport Time Capsule - should have done it when I disassembled it for cleaning last time, but didn’t have a replacement fan back then. Easy as 1-2-3 with a great guide from @iFixit ifixit.com/Guide/AirPort+Ext… #iFixitShowAndTell
