Man, it's too high for my bandwidth. But I got the first 1:30. I think I get at least the gist. I actually think 2nd world and maybe some 3rd world countries will have the easiest transition to better technology cycles, as they won't have to fight existing infrastructure. Like how all of Africa, it seems, is covered in good cell phone signals, but I can't get one in Kentucky. Most countries in Africa didn't have to fight existing infrastructure to put up cell towers. Just had to lay power lines.

well, theres a lot more to it. i mean a LOT more. it talks about how companies make products that will work great then break on purpose so you buy a new one. and how the fashion industry does the same thing by switching "styles" every so often
Well, I'm familiar with factory-planned obsolescence and I stopped being instyle about 5 years ago. In general, I try to buy at yard sales (or dumpster dive) things I need. Actually, there are very few things in my house that are purchased, and even fewer that are new. How's that for recycling?

lol and i thought i was the only one who dumpster dived for new things... i got a pair of computer speakers that were probly thrown away due to chewed cord yesterday!
A real good example are supposedly Green automobiles (or ANY automobile for that matter). When I was young, a Studebaker would last a minimum of 25-30 years if you maintained it. Can you imagine owning a present-day car for 30 years? Most of them become nearly junk just after the 6-8 year warranty runs out.

toyota camrys and small trucks(like you see in foreign countries with AK-47 armed militants riding in the back. its because they last) seem to last. im inheriting a 1982 chevy custom delux from my dad and the only thing that had to be replaced is the cap for the water pump and the carbuerator(and thats a funny story. the engine isnt a stock engine, its a 350 block instead of 300 i think and the mechanic didnt know that and put in the wrong carbuerator.) its also been in 3 wrecks lol. the frame is pretty messed up...
Let's just say, "on the average" then :-)

yea lol. all the "popular" cars
With few exceptions too, however mine has a 10 year, 100,000 mile warranty on it, and it is one of the cheapest priced cars out there.
