In this Adam Ruins Everything Adam explains that while you may own the device you bought, you don't own the software on it. This, he explains, allows companies to enforce their own rules and regulations on how that product is used—potentially preventing you from even repairing it.

We’re in the middle of an Attention War – where big tech battle it out to win over our eyeballs. Our attention spans are considered a precious—and scarce—commodity. So what is the price of your attention? In this mini-series, we'll explore the psychology, design and impact of tech and social media on both ourselves and society. A new episode will be released every Friday for the next six weeks.
