This entry is called Planned Obsolescence Sucks because Planned Obsolescence Sucks. I aim this one at LG, the megalith electronics corporation and practically every APP in the universe, or more specifically, every APP manufacturer that stops making an APP compatible with any TV. So a $1,000 Plasma TV sits in the living from and the Amazon Corporation made it obsolete for Amazon TV. $1,000 spent on a TV not made obsolete for Netflix by the Netflix Corporation.
So LG can blame Netflix and Amazon and Hulu and CBS and whomever else screws them and their product and Amazon and Netflix and Hulu and CSB ad every other greedy Corporation doesn't give a crap, like the old Ma Bell or the current internet providers, because there is no reasonable alternative for the addicts we've become. Much like politics and religion, there are no longer lessers of two evils, but we suckle up to the Corporate trough like the good mindless herd animals we've become. $1,000 dollars down the drain because greedy corporations want to force us to spend more money on more electronic crap that they will make obsolete in a few years, or less.
Human Herder might not be a job title in the Corporate world, but that is what they do. If consumerism is not madness, then we are all mad.
The truth is that consumerism is an addiction that creates poverty and financial hardship, the #1 cause of the break-up of families. The good old USA is so anti-family on every level, it is a crime anyone believes we ever were. Were we? Corporations have taken capitalism and turned it into slavery for you and me. We work ourselves to death just to continually buy the next must-have product running that mouse wheel leaves us little or no time to actually relax and enjoy all the crap we buy. The purchase itself has become the drug. Literally, look up endorphins, adrenaline, brain chemistry and gratification. You're fooling yourself if you believe you are free.
So don't buy LG. And if just for one day, boycott Amazon, Netflix, Hulu, CBS, NBC, ABC, FOX, Disney, Universal, Sony, Spectrum, ATT, Comcast, Xfinity, Foxcomm, Google, Alphabet, Samsung, Apple, Microsoft, Huawei, and all the slave masters (yes, I know I am on a free Google platform, but are they really any better? For just that one day, turn off your TV, your computer, your phone, and all the other electronic devices you think you can't live without and go out and just once before you die experience life without caving to the addiction, actually live your life, actually talk to someone, actually be a person, not a slave to the planned obsolescence the Corporations want you to be.
That is all.
