I have just seen movie The light bulb conspiracy. I have very mixed feeling about products and everything in general, especailly that I am studying to be engineering designer. I understand the fact that the economy has to grow, but is there other way of achieving it besides producing obsolete goods, wasting resources or trashing some parts of our planet? What was even more painful about the movie is the fact that Apple played significant role in it. But it wasnt a hero character… The company who claims to be so environmentally oriented etc. and would do things like those presented in the film? I would think that maybe Jobs wanted some money injection into the comapny since he was bringing it up from dead, right? Was it his way to sacrifice his beliefs about the environment in order to have enough resources to create new better things? But then why iPhone 3 could not support iOS4 or iOS5? I have got many more questions not only towards Apple.
The most important question I think is whose fault it is? Is it greed that pushed people to make more money? need for technological progress? Societies being too stupid so that would believe in anything companies or government want to sell them by telling them that they need it?
What do you think?
