There is no doubt that Corporations have perfected the practice of shortening the useful life of their products in order to guarantee replacement sales. We can also similarly claim that the annual model changes we are obliged to accept as consumers are not technologically substantive. Furthermore, this practice has grown like an infection that hampers innovation and threatens the growth of capitalism in our coming time.
