Have you ever realized that most of the gadgets that your parents owned like 20-year-old semi automatic washing machine, or your dad’s old Walkman that he used during his college days are still works great. While modern products like iPhones 5s, Laptops, Plasma Tv’s, and other devices are intentionally built to die off or self out date long before they actually stop functioning.

Is this the new careless, uneconomical and wasteful standard of Big Businesses?

It’s all part of the Planned Obsolesce Cycle and on a more serious note, there’s a multi-billion dollar technology industry established behind this the new careless, uneconomical and wasteful standard. Charging consumers hundreds, if not thousands for the latest devices and gizmo; only to say they can’t be fixed or repair and that the latest model is available; only to bring out a new version a few months later, making your current smartphone, well, not so smart anymore.
