How do you fight planned obsolescene in our consumerist society?
Is there any way?
>>
>>68024531
By killing yourself
>>
>>68024548
if you dont think that this is a problem then you are sadly brianwashed by corporate consumerism
>>
>>68024531
Only buy hardware that can be repaired. Never buy new hardware, only second hand with the exception of consumables with a short life, such as hdd, and hardware that cannot be obtained in a fair condition second hand.
Planned obsolescence only works because it doesn't apply to manufacturers hardware, therefore source used industrial hardware, instead of consumer goods.
>>
>>68024531
stop buying from companies known to employ planned obsolescence, for one. have fun telling that to normalfags though

also this >>68024897 , but new hardware than can also be repaired is acceptable to me
>>
>>68024531
by using until the death.
not buying shitchink

Legislation. Obligatory 10+ years guarantee on shit where the company has to replace the stuff for free. Only works when done on a somewhat global scale (at least the first world)

>b
Smash capitalism.

This >>68024897 and this >>68024932 and this >>68025400
Also support open source hardware projects, like Open Source Ecology, and Risc-v.

I don't. Fuck the environment.
>>
>>68024531
Is it bad that I feel a bit of mantears seeing this?
>>
>>68025819
Nobody is talking about the environment and the fact that you bring that up really draws into question your motivation for being okay with what is basically tantamount to someone fuckin your wife
>>
>>68025819
imagine being this fucking dumb

>>68025839
>mantears
lmao stop tacking man on shit faggot

LineageOS / PostmarketOS for phones.

Computers, ehh, bought my last one ~4 years ago and it still manages fine with games, only upgraded the GPU and sold the old one for close to the same price I bought it.
>>
Just don't buy new stuff al the time and use the things you have as long as they work or fit your needs.
I am on a 2013 computer and an old Galaxy S4. And i am not dying for that.

Can you even objectively prove that someone else fucking your consenting wife is a bad thing?
>>
>>68024531

they prob can literally do 200hz
>>
>>68026660
It's not a bad thing however, then she's also not your wife. This is about the most rational you can get about this.
