We need products to be serviceable by us is what I heard everyone was screaming and when a manufacturer make them such then some site concerns.I say, for concerned consumers, apple should drill a hole and put a fugly Philips screw at the back or just super glue it for them. Those people don’t deserve easy replaceable parts.A Philips screw seems like a very reasonable solution. Who cares if it's "fugly" if it makes the product safer (and in the process makes it less likely that the battery will fall out)?
Apple is full of it, of course. Secrecy hurts customers, particularly business customers. It makes planning much harder when there's not even a vague roadmap, let alone knowledge of the next year of products.Surprises are for children's birthday toys. They're completely inappropriate for technology.

Why? We can get a much better Intel iMac 27" today. We don't need a crippled Apple silicon version. 16GB RAM vs 128GB RAM capability is kind of a no-brainer, Intel is a better choice than M1.

or at least an adaptor for a couple of dollars.Oh, sure, because the dongle pocket in my computer bag doesn't already weigh almost as much as the computer itself. I'll just throw in a few more dozen.And it's not like I can take any out at this point, I actually had to use the mini-DVI to DVI adapter a few weeks ago. At least I don't have to regularly carry any SCSI adapters any more, it's been a few years since I needed one, so that's all in a separate SCSI data recovery bag.
