Apple has a plan for obsolescence. Is that so bad? Kate:
Obsolescence is like the weather. Everyone complains about it. Nobody does anything about it. What’s worse than obsolescence? Planned obsolescence. Who is the world’s worst offender at making products obsolete?
Let me guess. Apple?
Apple’s products last longer than competitors. Apple’s products are used longer than competitors. Apple’s products have higher resale value than competitors. Apple’s products receive more frequent updates for longer periods than most competitors.
Yep. That’s planned obsolescence.
