  • Mood:

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!
