r/technology – 27 ‘Right To Repair’ Laws Proposed This Year. Giants Like Apple Have Ensured None Have Passed So Far.


I actually believe John Deere is more against r2r than Apple is because of the impact it has on agriculture.

Tractor throws a code for a bad exhaust sensor, then the computer caps the amount of power it can use. When its power is capped it’s unusable for any work. Then your wasting time by shutting down until a second is brought in to do the work instead or its repaired.

Any one who’s a mechanic/tech at an implement company knows during those seasons that they are always busy, like I’ll get to your machine in 1 or more weeks from now busy.

During planting and harvest seasons when you can go you go. If you break down during those times it’s critical to get up and running again asap, otherwise it could be lead to losing the crop and/or money.

Apple is almost always the go to bad guy in the r2r conversations but John Deere is the bigger bad guy.
