+Michael Bramlett consumer grade gadgets are by definition built to die fast, there are technologies like iron-nickel batteries built by Edison that still work today (they were phased out by companies because lead-acid tech lasts 4 years, so each 4 years you sell a battery to the same dude...)
if you build things with gigantic tolerances, sacrifice portability for repairability, efficiency for reliability and do some other compromises, you will end with something that can work for millenia, because it wasn't designed by steve jobs.

A new self-destructing battery can power a simple electronic device for up to 15 minutes and then dissolve in water.
Battery could pave the way for so-called transient power sources for scientific instruments or tools of espionage, researchers say

OK, so the battery dissolves. What about the thing it was powering?

It's really sad that the best we can do is allow some premature globalist corporatist take the lead in this endeavour.

We should be doing this as a society and not allow entrepreneurs (monopolists) to take the reigns from the people.

We would already be looking up at night to see interplanetary space ships being built if these parasites hadn't stood in our way all through recent history. Why can't we break our conditioning and see them for what they are?

We live under the increasing control of parasites with a control fetish who fear everything they do not control. They are all racing for dominance and ownership of every resource on our planet and any other planet they can add to their collection.

With 5G, you could download a full-length high-definition movie onto a smartphone in seconds rather than minutes.
The Internet of Things, streaming virtual reality and many other much-hyped technologies cannot exist without a complete rethinking of how mobile devices get online

When and how can we see a HD movie in seconds?
Justifying high speed data transmission from 'movie download' times is very primitive way. These are inappropriate value measurements.

Was able to digitize old cassette language audio course (bought in 1990) with an old (same age) Walkman and a simple cable, but had to edit a lot with audacity. No need to buy a special digitizer. But my own recorded cassettes were long gone at this time :'(
