Hi.  Have any of you noticed that most gadgets, especially smart phones do not last for more than two years.  I noticed my smartphone has been acting funny, and I started to noticed that phones that I have been purchasing last for 2-3 years.  Like my last phone can only do 3G, and my phone before that was 2G. 

 

Of course the thing that I hate the most are home printers.  Their toners are notoriosly horrible.  A few good quality prints, then all of the sudden I need to buy more.

I am fully aware that many companies do this to make a profit.  But I feel that its unethical to let consumers hype up their products, then 6 months later a slightly better product is announce.
