Planned obscelence AKA designed to fail 📲

"…The parts are no longer available and you have to buy the next thing in line, which is of course going to be more expensive. And what happens to that product you can't use anymore? It gets thrown into landfill, polluting the planet that we live on. Now, I don't want to make this a dark, swell post with no solution forward. There is a solution. It's called the circular economy.…"

"…But it's interesting that lately there's been a lot of slander towards the iPhone that looks the same each year. So does all the other smartphones. In fact, they look like the iPhone. So there have been phones that have different tech, right and whatnot? But this ain't about that. This is just about plan. obsoletion. Yeah. obsoletion. Sorry.…"

"…And Apple is a perfect example of, yes, the speed has increased. Like when I'm that little brick iPhone, for a month, I was like, oh, boy, this is so slow. We've been sending text messages, and 90% of the apps, including Swell, that I was using previously, I couldn't even download on their phone. Like, the apps were just not download. So definitely here on that point. But, yeah, planned obscelence aka.…"

"…But the cooker, my friend, the stove, the oven, it was all in one. It was amazing. It was this dinosaur. It was a monster. It took up half the space in the kitchen. It was brown and it was from the late seventy s. And it had a delayed start timer on it.…"

"…How small you can fabricate allow us to put what is the density of how much computing processing power you can put on a chip and then goes on your computer, right? And if it has stopped like in the 99s, that is it. We saw a lot of growth based on the strength. Just imagine that we could have been stuck at a particular level of compute where we would not have been able to ever have supercomputers and anything like what we have right now.…"

"…Hey, Georgie. Thanks for response. Yeah, it's that's so funny. I heard you say tiny home. Like, do you literally have a tiny home? Like the term tiny home meaning us, you know, smaller than normal home. The idea of, like minimalism and to save cost, ask because I've watched the documentary Tiny Homes and it's really cool and I've thought about it. I think my entry level to property ownership will be through the avenue of a tiny home.…"

"…So while Moore's Law does apply and we do need to perhaps keep updating the hardware or software to be compatible with each other, I don't think it needs to be marketed as a new product as frequently, right? Like maybe it can be every five years or something more efficient and less wasteful. But again, coming back to my original point, apple is a prime example of planned obsolete. You literally read the description, the definition, and that's an Apple product.…"

"…Hey, Jax. Goodnight. Willcasters. Jose here. Excellent topic. He reminded me about the story of stuff a YouTube video that later became a channel. And they are doing great things for the planet. And in that I would say videographic they teach all about the plan obsolete. Definitely good memories from old days. This video is 13 years old, so imagine how long plan obsolescence have been in our economy. Crazy, but we are changing.…"
