Jerry watches youtube videos from Louis Rossman who fixes Apple products. Apple wants to just sell new products and replace them, not repair them. Leo agrees that people have a right to repair their property, but it's more complicated than that. There are security issues and intellectual property issues. But what Apple does to prevent third-party repair is terrible. People should always get a second opinion.

More than half of state legislatures have passed right-to-repair bills, with companies like Apple and John Deere lobbying heavily against it.
