                  Anon, you’re confusing survival of the fittest with meritocracy. Selective pressure 100% does create stronger animals. Sometimes that selective pressure comes from resource scarcity, sometimes it comes from other things. It’s reasonable to extend these principles to behaviours. This is the basis of evolutionary psychology. Feel free to criticize evolutionary psychology, but your reference to meritocracy just shows that you didn’t understand the post you replied to.

                      You’re criticizing something you don’t understand by making strawman arguments in order to then insult someone. I should expect this level of stupidity on LULZ, but nevertheless, I am impressed.

      Because companies that produce high quality products don’t get repeat business, their products last a lifetime.

      The key is making it so your product lasts slightly longer than the competition (or exactly the same length of time if you’re part of a lightbulb consortium), while also appearing higher quality at first glance. Bonus points if you can shove in some buzzword features and pretend it’s more energy efficient somehow. Make something too crappy, and the consumers will buy from your competitors next time (who are all really just shell companies and brands you already own the rights to).

            I once had a Tefal ActiFry. You put a little bit of oil in them with some chips (fries for you merilards) and they’d automatically rotate and flip as they cooked so when they were done they’d taste perfect, like they had been deep fried. It didn’t last very long and it stopped working within a few months.

      why put in the r&d when people aren’t willing to pay for a fancier microwave?
      even though the computer in that would be peanuts to produce, why spend the money even developing it in the first place, if you can get the same amount of money by just not doing it?

      Real answer is competition leads to manufacturers using cheaper shoddier parts to save on costs. People buy the cheapest thing that works so all you need to do is get a working product, it doesn’t have to be durable.

            Are you telling me that you use a convection oven to pop jiffy pop?

            And anyway, if you want to talk about flavour, etc, the best way to make popcorn is with a dedicated popping device like an air popper or stovetop popper and add butter and other toppings separately to get the exact proportion of butter, saltiness, etc, that you want. But at the end of the day, it’s popcorn we’re talking about, not fuckin caviar, and I’m most happy flinging a bag into my microwave, pressing a button, and coming back 2-3 minutes later to collect my perfectly popped popcorn.

      Awful sandboxing (for android 11+) that slows phones down cause scrotebrains can’t help themselves with avoiding viruses

      Accounting- Bloated OS, designed to make phone slower after x amount of time.
      scrotebrained choice of flash memory that becomes slow over time
      Unrepairable hardware (impossible to get spare parts)

      PC-
      Marketing-Software designed to not run on old hardware while fooling you into thinking you need it(like games… People still run new games on old hardware by modding them, proving that it’s intentional but muh graphics).

        Cars aren’t designed to be unrepairable, that’d bite the manufacturers in the ass hardcore. It’s much better to design them to be annoying to repair, making the customer bring it to the shop for repairs instead where you can fleece both the customer with spare part prices and the shop with yearly maintenance software licenses.
