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

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.
