In the Naive 1950s

we imagined that machines and robots would do away with most of 'work'.
That was, of course, before the devilish credit consumer economy was spawned.
Now we are surrounded by machines and robots,
and life has become much more complicated
and much more competitive
and much more expensive,
and people have to work ever harder
to feel at least as miserable as in the 1950s
that they have been short-changed by life.

And another thing:
instead of having hundreds of unreliable inkjet printers on the market
wouldn't it be nice
to have just a couple of series of robust models
that worked well and didn't jam or fall to bits
and whose cartridges were at a reasonable price...?

Even more irritating is planned obsolecence, keeping one on a constant treadmill of slavery, reliance, consumerism and needless waste.
