1 really important thing anyone that has ever been an engineer at hell even trade worker learns is that innovation takes time and multiple attempts, you cannot reasonably learn how to assemble components together to perform a specific function wether building an engine, generator, new machine, material whatever and expect that design to perform its given task effectively the first time it was created. What I see people like elon musk,Jeff bezos, ma huateng, jack ma, anyone that works as a leader at NASA, etc all have in common is that they're collectively trying to push unfinished or poorly tested designs for their products and machinery into the global market to be sold or used by governments for their purposes and seem to exhibit 0 regard for the scientific method, and 0 willingness to improve on their garbage machines, no invention or design turns out perfect I can understand that's the case for anyone that's ever had to work as an engineer in whatever field but this laziness is noticeable enough to a degree that the unprofessionalism is apparent when you start seeing spaceX rockets flat out fucking explode while landing, or amazon delivery drones running out of energy while they're performing their service, or chinese made phones wether made locally or by westerners outsourcing their supply chains breaking within a few weeks from minor collisions. It's really embarrassing and wastes a fuck ton of time and resources along with contributing tremendous amounts of damage as models need to be mass produced for testing maintenance and assembling before a finished design can be released, a wealth that contributes to global e waste and excessive(and really inefficient usage) mining of rare earth metals along with oil drilling. Oh well sorry for this rant if it's off topic to you mods…
Not a mod, but this isn’t off topic and raises a very good point. Not to mention that whatever successful innovation there is is mostly just really good at extracting more value and wealth from consumers while providing them with the same or even a worse quality product
At the risk of sounding like a lolbert boomer removing money from the gold standard to free up more money that can be pumped into capitalism and that can be pocketed using financial fuckery.
Because they won't do many sales without PROGRAMMATED OBSOLESCENCE.

No that is not really true, people always want the shiny new thing, if the old stuff is durable, it gets sold to the second hand market. Without planned obsolescence stuff would just be handed down more, and society would collectively be richer. I think they are doing this to keep poorer people from having access to nice things.
>>442060> I dont know what happened in 1971 but ever since that year technological innovation has accelerated in quantity but decelerated in actual quality
dafaq does this even mean
