This could be viewed two ways. On the one hand, it might be beneficial, as it would create a deterrent for 'Alphabet Agencies' and others to tamper with. On the other, it limits home users from modifying their own property or repairing it on their own.
HARPO-54: This is exactly what I have done. I replaced my "aging" mobile phone some months ago and of course had a multitude of brand names from which to choose. I did go Android. My oldest granddaughter had an Apple laptop some years ago, purchased prior to her freshman year at the university. There is only ONE authorized repair depot for Apple products in our city-- they know that consequently charging outrageous prices for their work and parts. That was my lesson learned. The cost for repairs to her"machine" was approximately one-half the purchase price. Last year the laptop died. This time, we go PC version and she made that decision.

Likewise, I will not buy any Apple products that incorporate tactics such as the one mentioned.
