Storyboard Text

  • Hey, what TV should I get? Mine is pretty obsolete now.
  • Well, it basically means it isn't being made anymore and it's out of date
  • What does obsolete mean?
  • Hmm. I'm still trying to find a good TV.
  • Woah! I think you should get this, he says it lasts forever!
  • Hey there! I'm selling a brand new TV that will last forever!
  • Best TV's that will last forever.
  • Hmm. It's only been 2 weeks and the new TV is already broken. I wonder why?
  • I guess it might be because of planned obsolescence.
  • What is planned obsolescence?
  • Well, it is when a company plans or designs a product so that it will last a limited amount of time.
  • But why would they do that!? That's bad for the costumers!
  • Well it's because they want their customers to keep buying their products since the last one is obsolete, even though it is still fully usable.
  • I guess my old TV still works well, so I'll use it until it is fully unusable.
  • Yeah you should because it is also useful for the environment since you don't have to throw out a lot of electronics.
