Business reviews about Framework

I see we have roughly 2 threads about the reviews in this forum. Those are

I wanted to create this thread as a place to share videos or articles about the Framework business. It’s like business reviews. And I believe this video of an interview released today has not shared on this forum yet.

Dude, Nirav is the real deal. I don’t think he can be praised enough here. I’m not one to fawn, but I mean I really can’t believe that someone who has been so successful in silicon valley could ever champion such an awesome and crucial cause.

When you fully understand the gravitas of the situation that Framework is trying to undo and improve, and just how important it is, it really puts the complaints about the Laptop in the minor camp. (That doesn’t mean I don’t want to see firmware improvements, etc.)

I personally think the Framework Laptop is a pretty excellent homerun.

As a purpose of this thread, I would introduce this link here too. :slight_smile:

@2disbetter I can understand a person who is doing a transition from “successful in silicon valley” into doing something for the real meaningful good things.

Another interview video is coming.

Another interview on BBC!

Could manufacturers help reduce electronic waste?

The manufacturers of electronic goods such as mobile phones, laptops and tablets, frequently update their models and consumers, keen to have the latest device, discard their old goods. This contributes to an electronic waste mountain, that, according to a UN estimate, weighed more than 53 million metric tonnes in 2019. So is there a way out of this culture of disposable electronic goods?

Nirav Patel is CEO and founder of Framework - a computer start up that is making laptops that are designed to last. He says many manufacturers create devices that are “perfect shiny objects” and not made to be modified or repaired by the consumer. He thinks the answer is to make devices more long lasting, whether by making them easier for the owner to renew elements such as batteries, or by making them possible to trade with another owner or organisation.

“The core problem is the idea that electronic goods are disposable”

This interview video to Nirav is amazing. It seems that the professional reviewer Josh has also a background of software development and business. Josh asked very good questions related to the development and business.

I am excited to hear why Framework chose the laptop as their first product.
