Hasnít it always been this way? At least for a lot of manufacturing, the average level of material quality, tolerances, etc are way better than at any point in the past. But a combination of unintentional over engineering and survivorship bias from older stuff makes people think the opposite is going on.

I thought that consumer goods were the area where that was really the issue.

I had a lovely (not really that lovely) argument with a guy I know once who works as a commercial buyer, where he took the position that planned obsolescence is a good thing, actually.

No, it's true. Bell Telephone held a vertical monopoly in the United States.

I checked on the uBlock Origin subreddit. The uBO maintainers say this was caused by a bug in AdBlock (the extension), and uBlock Origin wasn't affected.

Victory?

Rent control and affordable housing are terrible ways to deal with this. It just means people do everything they can to stay where they are and won't move across the bay for work because losing that perfect landlord or rent controlled place and jumping up to market rate is so extreme.

That just means that you need rent control across the bay, too.

I got all four of my wisdom teeth out at once.

I got prescribed Tylenol 3 with coedine.

It didn't help that much.

Ah, but the right side was the wrong side.
