Planned Obsolescence’s odyssey

  • Malfunction: I have 2 brothers; back in 2012 a great device, one which I’ll not mention, was released, and we bought the SAME SMARTPHONE relatively at the SAME PERIOD, in DIFFERENT CITIES. Exactly 2 years later, surprisingly, our 3 devices started to fail in the same way. Yes, this was the first time I experienced the bitter taste of PO consciously (have you ever imagined how much we experienced it without even realize?).
  • Storage: those who do not use the camera and apps extensively, will get me. What the hell is my phone full of? Why does it say storage full? Nothing you delete or uninstall will be enough, believe me. Hm, there’s something there. It is an invisible space that established itself in the device and won’t go away.
  • Versions: apps and gadgets that only work on more “recent” versions of devices. But, hello? What’s “new” for you?
