“They were built to last. Everything nowadays is built to break.”

A good story on the typewriter comeback at the Toronto Star.

Great article.
I'm even old enough to remember when things were built to last.

Built to last... I agree!!! :D

My typewriters Olympia SG 3 and Olivetti Lettera 31 were made in 1983 and 1974, respectively. And they still are working in a perfect way. The "Giantess" Olympia is my favorite model. xD

Built to break... I agree!!! :(

My computer is barely ten years old, and the C.P.U.'s components are getting screwed. My first computer (made in 1997 and bought in 2000) just lasted 17 years. In 2007, it was totally obsolete. :(
