Subject : The Light Bulb That Ran For Years And Years!,
In the 80´s a Californian fire department went on a call to extinguish a fire in a house built in the 1800´s. From this house they took with them a light bulb. To their amazement it still worked, and it kept working, for years and years. It was a light bulb made before the era of Planned obsolescence.


´Planned obsolescence or built-in obsolescence[1] in industrial design is a policy of deliberately planning or designing a product with a limited useful life, so it will become obsolete or nonfunctional after a certain period.[1] Planned obsolescence has potential benefits for a producer because to obtain continuing use of the product the consumer is under pressure to purchase again, whether from the same manufacturer (a replacement part or a newer model), or from a competitor which might also rely on planned obsolescence.[1]

´For an industry, planned obsolescence stimulates demand by encouraging purchasers to buy sooner if they still want a functioning product. Built-in obsolescence is used in many different products, from vehicles to light bulbs, from buildings to proprietary software. There is, however, the potential backlash of consumers who learn that the manufacturer invested money to make the product obsolete faster; such consumers might turn to a producer (if any exists) that offers a more durable alternative.[citation needed]

Planned obsolescence was first developed in the 1920s and 1930s when mass production had opened every minute aspect of the production process to exacting analysis.[citation needed]

Estimates of planned obsolescence can influence a company's decisions about product engineering. Therefore the company can use the least expensive components that satisfy product lifetime projections. Such decisions are part of a broader discipline known as value engineering.´

Increase RAM: If you are running 128mb or 256mb of Ram, it's pretty cheap and easy to upgrade to 512mb. Although this suggestion will actually cost money but we think only 450/- Rs will increase Your computer's speed much more than before. Remember to buy RAM of good quality. In Pakistan the trusted RAM is of Kingston.

Uninstall Useless Programs: Having old games or other software you no longer use can take up a lot of space on your hard drive, which can lead to an overall decrease in your PC's performance.
Removing old programs is easy. From the Control Panel click on the "Add or Remove Programs" Icon. You can safely remove programs like games, demos, and other software you no longer use.
