without the planned obsolescence of computing devices the tech market would still be horrifically disastrous for the environment.

with planned obsolescence it is so obscene that it's hard to really take it in.

@howbluetheanger Part of it's to do with software, too. It's not designed with efficiency and stability in mind, because with constant development things get way more powerful.The solution, so the capitalist reasoning goes, is to make more powerful hardware, not more efficient software.
