Well since it's about all technology it's hard to say.
Cars and stuff like kitchen appliances did barely brake at all, but now it's different.

But then stuff like mobile phones couldn't take too much damage without being broken. Not all of the newest models can either but the lets say that some models made a few years ago are like impossible to destroy. And I am serious, one of my friends managed to drop his mobile phone to a lake (I know, takes lots of skill to do this) and it didn't brake. I have thrown my mobile phone against the wall, using quite much strenght, atleast 5 times and it still works fine.

So it depends quite much on the area of technology.

Very true. But engineers are not on this Earth to engineer things to break, they are here to engineer them to function for a long period of time. Processors for example last 4-9X as long as they used to. Cars are higher quality engines and intake systems, kitchen appliances are more modern and have more power and better technology.

You need proof? Ok then. I'll give you my own opinion. The things that are made in Mexico is really badly done. Instead of having a nice and clea environement, it's so dirty and dusty that pieces will break b/c one or more curcuits chockes slowly, wihich will make a short

They do stuff that they are programmed to break one day
Gave me a chuckle but only true in some cases, while others are not ... just as some things were built to last in the olden days while others perished in the wake of other better technology

I am mostly unhappy of their durability. My TV blew up 2 years ago and had to buy a new one. Nowdays, I don't look at the company, I look where it's built.
