Re: But what if..
This is the backup plan functioning in place of exactly that. Ideally they -would- love to make something that can produce itself, because that would make it possible to mine much, much more quickly. Not to mention forgetting entirely about maintenance and further launches. Only then do we get resource shortages in the inner belt, but don't worry - the robot biome probably won't be able to cope with reentry and specimens capable of reproducing in macrogravity until something in the wild evolves intelligence, same as us pollinating space.
Re: looks like no more Who for me...
@Success Case: I think I'm in love. Sublime writing. We need more realist humanists like you to hold the fort against the pessimism that this kind of fantasy breeds. Keep going, man, don't think everyone is drinking the kool-aid, there are still people (young people!) that have refused to rely on this crap to prop themselves up against misanthropy.
Re: Beats are real scum (At least at the moment).
Nah, they follow normal engineering practices (actually cheaper sometimes than going through a separate cycle to ensure a part will, statistically, fail outside of warranty) and rely on perceived obsolescence and an update cycle to drive the market instead :) Which is worse, really? They both amount to people buying mountains of electronics instead of one good product that does what it's supposed to do for decades.
