Comment Days of "Built to Last" are coming back (Score 1) 371

This planet has finite resources. Past three to four decades has seen increase in consumer (not customer) attitudes for "use and throw" culture. Advertising, in-built obsolescence, consumer's rapidly changing tastes are all to blame.

Everything (even rubbish products) require energy and other resources, to produce. A bigger problem exists for disposing them carefully. I foresee going back to change in consumer attitudes of owning few solid & good things which will last for long.

Insofar entertaining (experiencing) new things are concerned, we are witnessing developments in augmented reality.
