It's definitely "planned obsolescense", has to be. I had an iMac (my first Mac) that decided to have a meltdown about a week after the warranty ran out, an iPod that did exactly the same, and I can't count the number of kitchen appliances that decide to quit the nanosecond the warranty expries.

Yet I have a 70+ year old mechanical typewriter that works flawlessly every time (well, when I've used it, it's more of an ornament now).
