Planned Obsolescence

I'm so cross. I have two Pure One Mini DAB radios, which I bought about three and a half years ago. One is in the kitchen and runs off the mains. The other I think of as my computer radio and it runs off the battery. Today, out of the blue, the power switch has gone, so the thing is useless. I have radios which are at least thirty years old and still work perfectly! Grrr!

How annoying. Things just DON'T last as long these days in spite of technological 'progress'.

Too right!
I bought a Pure digital radio - NOT cheap - which lasted all of 7 weeks in my kitchen before the LCD display vanished leaving me unable to find any station! No refund as I was told that the humidity in a kitchen was far too high for a radio to function correctly anyway. Back to analogue for me for the time being but I do miss radio4 extra!

That's dreadful and what rubbish about humidity in the kitchen! I've always had a radio there, couldn't do without it. I'm going to fish out another old one and yes, it's Radio4 Xtra that I'll miss.
