On the new MacVoices, the second part of the discussion on “How Long Should Tech Last” with the panel of Charles Edge, Ken Ray, Brett Terpstra, and host Chuck Joiner gets into topics that include the costs of maintaining older hardware and software from both the end user as well as the manufacturer’s perspective, backward compatibility, and how you should budget for replacement.
The effect on purchasing decisions, backward compatibility vs. new features, class action suits vs. transparency, and more are all included in an episode that will make you think about what and when you are purchasing.
