Planned obsolescence – The lightbulb conspiracy

the lightbulb conspiracyThis is a 50 minute video exploring the concept of planned obsolescence – which is the deliberate design of products to breakdown after a certain period of time or number of uses, so that consumers are forced to buy a new product.

It is a fascinating documentary showing that products can last a lot longer. They explore examples from communist countries where their whitegoods were designed to last many decades and a lightbulb that has been burning since 1901! The lightbulb which is at a local fire station has outlived two webcams that were recording it.
