Throwaway Culture

"The throw-away society is a human society strongly influenced by consumerism. The term describes a critical view of overconsumption and excessive production of short-lived or disposable items over durable goods that can be repaired."

Also maybe the general “throwaway” or disposable tech. Used to buy things that lasted 10-20 years. My parents finally upgraded the phone in their bedroom after 26 years… But my damn cell phone craps out every 2 as it gets slower and slower. Computers start slowing down the minute theyre made it seems like. And with all the other new things going on, a 5 year old computer is bordering on “old” today.
