    You should understand a little more about ones and zeros before getting into these types of discussions.

    Yeah, because vandalism and planned obsolescence are the same thing.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    The problem you face making planned obsolescense illegal is most people wouldnt be able to afford to buy many things they buy today. If they built refridgerators to last 25 yrs like they used too when they first came out...think about how much it would cost initially...triple ? 4- 5 times the cost...that would the same with all major appliances...no one is going to build something you only have to buy once and then end their business..

    What I said is the same spirit with everything that's in the Constitution.

    That's not very Libertarian'esque of you to mock the Constitution like that. I thought LIbertarians were all Constitutionally.

    Yup, they are functionally the same thing.

    Wrong again.

    Most of you obviously don't get what "planned obsolescence" actually is. No it's not using Titanium when cheaper steel could be used, what it is is deliberately using bad welding spots so it eventually breaks. And no deliberately making bad welding spots DOES NOT INCREASE THE PRICE OF MANUFACTURING.

    That's an easy one. Because I use a blender maybe once or twice a year at most. The cheap piece of **** is made for people like me who won't use it frequently, while the $300 professional grade mixer is made for high frequency of use. Same with any product. I have a cheap ass phone because it's not an important piece of equipment to me, and when a phone fails me, I destroy it. Since November of last year, I've gone through about 7 or 8 phones. On the other hand, My computer cost me about $1,200, but I'm on it all the time, and I needed something reliable for school, work, communication, entertainment, etc. I don't even own a tv, because the computer does everything. Cheaper ****tier products have their place, as well as the more expensive high quality items.
    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    So don't buy from that company then.
