Its not anti capitalist, there is money to be made in maintenance haha. With the tech companies, people would FLOCK to a company that actually built a solid product at this point, the demand is there, but no one has... wait for it... capitalized

This i can understand with roads, they wont make cars smaller or relax regulations so we can drive UTVs on public roads (which is all i want to do!) so they have to make roads bigger to accommodate more traffic with growing population... but they just keep building houses that arnt being sold.
But seriously, if i could use a golf cart or UTV on the road, it would solve the traffic problem, i would do it sooooo fast haha. >>229635
Cant you improve what you have though? I mean, maintenance is still improvement and you can incrementally improve infrastructure as you maintain it. You can also improve materials and techniques that are used in the maintenance. And in tech, you can improve the reliability and efficiency of a product rather than starting from scratch every time you want to introduce a new program/hardware. >>229636
Yeah, and thats what i figure when it comes to tech, or any new product tbh. Its about saying you have the next cool thing, rather than delivering. The advertising department is leading the engineering department and thats a recipe for disaster.
I would have arguments with my friend who went to school for industrial design, because in his classes he was taught form over function
which to me, is completely absurd, but from a marketing standpoint, its gospel. >>229650
You strike the match. >>229667
Also, the A10 would be a perfect candidate for what im talking about, they could inovate to minimize the drawbacks of the A10 and still be able to keep the lagistic advantage of keeping the old design, but then i guess what would Lockheed Martin be doing with their time?>>229676
Sometimes i wonder if scifi is forward thinking, or if we are influenced by it to the point where we start to just fallow its lead haha.
Ill check that book out if i remember, sounds interesting.
