That is the point - Hillary and the Dems have been using anti-Russian rage to show off their 'toughness' and whine about Trump. They have gone too far

This kind of stuff seems to only happen in industries that are quickly evolving to new technology. Like phones, TVs, computers etc.

Most of the issues I have been seeing are people not taking care of their tech, I have still got everything I have ever owned (apart from two or three things that I have sold.).

In my experience, things become unusable because other stuff has moved on. They rarely become unusable because some part of them has broken beyond reasonable repair due to no fault of my own.

A computer my family bought 16 years ago is still being put to use today. It can no longer run a secure version of windows, so I installed Linux on it, and my brother still uses it for basic web browsing. My old laptop I bought 6 years ago is being used by my dad for the same purpose. The phone I had before my previous phone is still working and is running a custom ROM in order to keep up with the modern internet, put a new battery in it that only cost £5 and sold it to someone for £50.

I don't get where this "modern tech is not built to last" stuff is coming from, the parts are there, they are serviceable. People just don't bother because new/better stuff has come out.

Always some tvs, even perfectly made, will break. Always there are some new people on the market. Also people will want to buy new things when they are better. That market is smaller then the one you can inflate by producing stuff that will break fast but at least its true. I'm not a fan of Apple and I don't buy their stuff but hey, I have friends who have several iPhones, dating back to older models, ending on 6 now. They bought newer ones even though the old ones still work. And comparing to my phones, their functionality drops down much slower.
#41 - anon (10/02/2016) [-]
That's a bad analogy for using tvs but it's just purely bad by itself. That's assuming that all consumers buy the TV on the same day/week/year or however you want to look at it. Consumers never work that way as a whole.

This applies to all products that are commonly purchased.

They are not buying it at the same time i know that but if the device breaks after 3 to 4 years ppl have to buy it more frequently. It shortens the span between each purchase for each individual which makes more profit. I get that this is a dickish move. The company wants profit, consumers want cheap prices and everybody wants a growing economy. Thats a cheap and dickish way to squeeze profit

I get where you are coming from, but that was a bad example; since modern TVs do last 10-20 years and people do only buy new ones because they are slightly better.

yeah ok i admit Tv was a bad example but imagine it with laptops or phones. Most of my laptops i had usually last a bit longer than the guarantee.
