Then, in the 1920’s, a group of businessmen realized that the longer their products lasted, the less money they made. Its all down to the Light Bulb Conspiracy, thus something called Planned Obsolescence was born and, ever since, manufacturers have deliberately shortened their products’ life spans to increase sales.This short read Help! My Toasters Broken by Eric Blake discusses the reasons why we, the consumer, are forced prematurely to buy replacement products because more and more companies seem to be shortening the lifespan of these products by cleverly programming them to self-destruct.
