Disposable Society...

At work, we have a printer that is a few years old. It works very well, but it doesn't have the kind of connector called "USB" which is the latest/greatest. So, I was asked to get the printer to work with two computers – an easy job in the old days. Except now that all the new equipment is USB, it is hard to locate cables at the computer store that have the right connectors. I was even told by a tech guy "Just get a new printer" instead of trying to mix and match cables to work with the old printer.

We are truly in disposable mode –

 It's broken? Don't fix it, just toss it.

Can't make it connect? Don't get the right cable, just toss it.

Buy a new one – bigger, better, faster!!!!!!
