[Homework]【整理】2011-09-25&10-01 电子设备的故事 (1/3)

the other day, i couldn't find my computer charger. my computer is my life fund, my work, my friend, my music. so i looked everywhere. even i draw with this sleeves, i know you have tango of charges. the sad remains with the electronic past. how they end up with so many of these things? it is not like i am always after the lady's gadget. my old devices broke and become obsolete so i can't use them any more. and none of my these old charges fit my computer. this is not just bad luck, it is bad design. i call it the design for the dump. design for the dump sounds crazy, right? but when you are trying to sell a lot of stuff, it makes perfect sense. it is a key strategy for our company to make electronics. in fact it is a key part of our whole unsustainable material's economy .design for the dump means making stuff to be thrown away quickly. today's electronics are hard to upgrade, easy to break and impractical to repair. my dvd player broke and i took it the shop to fix. the repair guy wanted 50 dollars just to look at it. and the new one just need 39 bucks. in 1960, gordon more, the giant brain semi conduct pioneer  predicted that the electronic disist could double process speed every 18 months. so far he has been right, this is called Mao's law. but somehow the boss of this genius designer got all twist it up. they seems to think that Mao's law means every 18 months we have to throw away all our electronic devices and buy more. the problem is the 18 month we use these things are just blimp of our entire life cycle. and that's where these dump designers aren't just calling payment of our wallets, they are calling a global toxic emergency. you see electronic stars are usual  stars in mining and factories. many of our gadget are made of thousands of different materials. shipped from around the world to the assembly place. there, works turn them into products using loads of toxic chemicals. like PVC, mercury, solvence and flammerators. today these are usually happened in far places that we are hardly to monitor. but used to happen in my home like silcon valey which thinks the electronic industry is the most poison industry in the US.
