Who cares? Hardware is a mature, dead-end industry. This is why EE is a moronic career choice these days.

How else but with .5mm surface mount BGAs and HDI technology do you expect to build something like a modern cell phone?

OF COURSE they're going to be nearly impossible to work on at home... SO WHAT? It's all about the software. Phone breaks? Chuck it. Get a new one. It'll be better anyways.

The "choice" you are thinking about no longer has anything to do with the hardware, which is basically a paint-by-numbers commodity these days. (Which is why EE is a dead-end industry.)
