Why can't they make electronic equipment as large as, say, a car? Then we wouldn't spend so much time losing parts. As a bonus, we'd get to use wrenches instead of tiny little screwdrivers.

From the submitter: I bought this microwave oven for R$ 20 to fix it and use. Unfortunately, it is IMPOSSIBLE to find the keyboard membrane in Brazil. In USA, just the membrane costs $80!!! So I traced the keyboard circuit and made a new keyboard for it :)
