Programmed Obsolescence

What happens if a big tech company goes out of business tomorrow? A catastrophe, or a human error …

What if billions of devices around the world stop working because a bunch of servers fail and we only have a piece of junk in our hands?

Do we, customers, have a backup plan? Are we worried about this?

It is not an anti-capitalist complaint. It is about our survival. We should trust our tools, they must help especially in times of need. We are living in a fragile technology bubble.

Should we invest in resilient and sustainable technology?
