I have some interest in old scientific and technical devices. Time after time, if I recover the instruction manual, it will say something like "with proper maintainence, this __________ will provide generations of service." They just built them that way.

Today, with technology racing forward faster than we can track, the idea of a technical device being used for generations makes no sense at all. A cell phone built to last for generations would be a waste of resources. The rational approach is to build them to last a few years only.

And in my opinion, we have lost something important thereby.
