Cheating obsolescence

Good luck finding something that’s built to last. Most mass-produced items are made to fall apart sooner rather than later. Or they become obsolete, like computers in particular, long before their components stop functioning. If you’ve had to upgrade your programs to be compatible with Windows 8 or, worse, had to upgrade your programs every time Apple changes its operating system (doesn’t that happen about every two weeks?), you’ve experienced the unpleasant side of obsolescence.

A local company’s stated goal is to help you beat the system. They’re doing it in a new shop that is prepared for its own obsolescence.
