Personal technology is getting cheaper, better, smaller. But have you ever tried to get fixed a broken cell phone or mp3 player? When I broke my portable USB flash drive, I brought it to a computer repair technician, unsure if he’d simply turn me away or not. Those little “thumb” drives are just so small. No moving parts really, they’re all circuitry. Turns out that getting it fixed wasn’t an impossibility. I just had to go to some unusual places.
