ThoughtBUBBLE: Planned obsolescence

thoughtbubblefarbeSomething that bothers me a lot ultimately is the huge amount of electronic waste that everyone of us generates. Me for example: in the last 10 years i had eight different mobile phones! Eight! I have to admit that I was not very careful with them and maybe one or two broke, but I’m pretty sure that the remaining six are still working. Nonetheless I changed them. Why? Because it was outdated. Or at least big Industry and their marketing made me think that it was so, even if my devices were perfectly fine. That is kinda┬ásad.
