Re: Mockery? Sugarcoating?
I was about to make exactly the same point as this. I've just stopped using a perfectly viable piece of hardware because it no longer receives updates. I don't know who downvoted your eminently sensible comment. We have world leaders in Glasgow trying to fix global warming, but apparently even relatively simple problems like "don't force people to throw their phones away every two or three years" are insoluble.
