Stay Free interviews Giles Slade, the authorApr 05 2007

Stay Free interviews Giles Slade, the author of a book on planned obsolescence. "Companies profit more when products have shorter lifespans - because they sell more products that way. This is no conspiracy theory but, rather, simple economics. Small wonder, then, that product lifespans are shrinking across the board. In 1997, a PC was expected to last 4 or 5 years; by 2003, only two years, and today the life expectancy is even less."
