Entities often present themselves as contrary to their true nature: "Don't be Evil", means the exact opposite

Uranus is a nightmare:
♪ Gallileo, Gallileo, Gallileo, figar-GO, Actifio-oooh-ooh-oh. I'm just a poor backup and nobody loves me...
Dare I mention PIII era motherboards? My much loved dual PIII setup would still be functional today if it were not for the cr*p cap debacle. My PII still works.
...whoa, do you use this to make actual music? Wind-to-electronics instruments seem thin on the ground these days if you don't count vocoders, which is suppose that device is sortof.
If we all started making durable goods, that whole cycle would collapse and send the entire Western World bankrupt within a decade
There are a huge number of consumers who would love their recycled plastic bins to actually recycled rather than dumped in the ground or sea... and care enough to pay to make that happen. Modular, repairable electronic devices will undoubtedly come at a modest price bump, which I believe many people will pay. Higher prices mean more revenue, particularly when you factor in a new service industry created to recycle toxic trash completely. Ultimately, such short chain thought will cost humanity the stars. Zero Sum Game.
Since when have capacitors become so crap?!?!? My big, beautiful LG TV died the other day... opened it up and there they were - crappy puffy capacitors! Now I either have to solder in replacements myself of buy a new board from somewhere, which may or may not be compatible because they f*cking don't make that easy to determine, or buy a new TV and consign the old one to landfill - poisoning plants and potentially water supplies. The f*ck will someone standardise quality caps in China (or Taiwan, Japan or India). There must become a huge movement towards electronic products which feature longevity as a primary design concern, with easily sourced and easy to replace components or modules else humanity will suffocate or starve well before we colonise the universe.
There's no reason why appliances can't last like this:
Windows CE was actually quite useful - I still use my HTC mobiles because the contacts stay on the phone rather than get leached into the data coffers to all and sundry. Sync is a lot easier with my old version of Office. The possibility exists Axim GPS might still work, I'll have to pack my axe and dinghy and go in search of uncontacted tribes yet again...

"... here at El Reg we are of the belief that it's more about quality rather than quantity when it comes to forum contributors."
