My house has had the same TV since before I was born (that’s more than 18 years!) and it broke down about  a year ago so we got a new one to replace it. But just today it broke down too. I don’t know if it’s just our bad luck year with electronics or what but it seems to me that the ancient electronics in my house are much more durable than the new ones in the market nowadays. Many of the electronics in my house have been used for over 18 years and are still going strong while stuff like my computer or the TV don’t even last half the time. I suppose it may be due to the mass production processes or perhaps just a general carelessness for durability with the constant updates in technology. However, I don’t exactly appreciate it since it may not be in everyone’s ability to constantly replace their broken electronics with new ones. What do you think? Is this phenomenon of shortened electronic lifespans reasonable? – Vivian
