The way I see this is we cannot stop what is already happening. We can slow it down by buying less electronics. There are those who are constantly upgrading their ‘toys’ every year or even every small iteration.
People need to open their eyes that your old ‘toys’ are probably still good enough. What if they start experiencing problems? Well, fix it, go to ifixit.com or discussion forums to find out where the problems are and how to fix them.
Sure, there are bad electronics out there. So, don’t buy them and be a smart buyer. A properly designed electronic should last for a lifetime. Maybe not smartphones, tablets, or computers. But they do last for a while if you take care of them.
