The endless upgrade cycle that rules our consumerist society keeps marching on.
But once in a while, something happens and upsets the profits of big companies who have come to depend on this planned obsolescence.
The most recent example is affecting our secular deity that produces certain pocket computers that can also make phone calls, take pictures and tell the world what we’re doing at any given moment.
It turns out quite a few people decided that the beautiful devices that guide our every move are still compelling in form and function.
It’s just that some models are a little on the old side.
There’s nothing wrong with that kind of thinking.
