disposable culture

It gets really frustrating that when something breaks, it is almost impossible to fix it anymore.  Instead you are just supposed to throw it out and get a new one.  Cost, convenience, and culture tell us that it is not important to do or make things that last.  Here is someone, something, that is trying to work against that - a phone that doesn't become out-of-date five minutes after you buy it.  How cool?

  1. that's what i'm struggling with in regards to my couches. they're starting to show the wear and tear of ten years but still too good to throw out. do i venture out and try to recover them?
