Ok if it is normal to have a cartel keeping the light bulb last for not too long, guess it will also be OK to destroy some of their manufacturing power, am I right? Humanity keeps inventing great things but there's always a bunch of greedy-handed salespersons who make it impossible for people to get real benefits of them. In fact, we could have worked 2 hours a day (as opposed to working 16 hours a day two centuries ago) to get ourselves to the same standards of living we have today. And yet there's always a huge fund or an old Mr. Scrudge who stops us from reaching that.

Everyone needs to be needed, but nobody wants to need someone. It's that hideous strength that dictates inevitably, eventually, only one person will remain. And inevitably, eventually, even that person will perish. And the cause of this extinction is our own obsession to replace ourselves with what we create, so that we no longer need others, nor even need ourselves. We desire to make ourselves obsolete.

People should stop using Apple products, but sadly they don't have the knowledge or willingness to get out of Apple's ecosystem prison. Marginal improvement and recycling of designs. I never found Apple designs as enticing. Fashion industry is also another big cause of wastage I this world. Instead of durable products for consumers, they just produce some crap design and hype every season. Same people stay away from such enemies of environment.

I know thats not comparable to normal LED lifespan and was caused by some fluctuations in the local power grid, but it were only the LED's that broke back then. Still awesome video though!

There's a simple explanation for lightbulb lifespans. It has to do with brightness and temperature. Basically, in order to make a nice bright incandescent light bulb, you have to heat the filament very hot, and over time it will slowly sublimate, until eventually the filament becomes too weak and breaks. This can be solved by running the lightbulb at a lower temperature. This gives you a very long lasting light bulb, but it will also be rather dim. Also, it will be less power efficient, since the lower the temperature, the more of the light it emits will be in the infrared spectrum, invisible to human eyes. Halogen light bulbs have an interesting approach to mitigating this problem. They contain a small amount of a halogen, such as iodine or bromine, which is a gas when the lightbulb is on and the insides are hot. What this does is react with the tiny amount of tungsten vapor coming off the filament, turning it into a compound with a much lower vaporization point. This means that instead of "falling" and condensing as fine dust on the bottom of the bulb, it stays around as a gas, and when it comes into contact with the hot filament, the compound breaks down, releasing the halogen and letting the tungsten stick back to the filament. It still isn't perfect, since it won't land in exactly the same place it left, and eventually the filament will get thin and thick spots and end up breaking, but it lets these light bulbs either last longer, or shine brighter without too short a lifespan. The light bulb in the fire station has lasted as long as it has because they're running it at very low brightness. Thus, it doesn't get hot enough for the filament to deteriorate. Of course, it doesn't put out very much light either... Another factor is how often the lightbulb is turned on and off. When this happens, the filament undergoes thermal expansion or shrinking, but since this will never quite be completely even, it puts extra stress on the filament during the tiny amount of time in which it heats or cools. Ever notice that almost every single time an old light bulb dies, it happens the instant you turn the light on? This is why.

Using a VPN does NOT always allow you to watch streaming content from other countries. I bought a VPN because of this promise and it didn't work at all. The broadcaster (BBC) was not fooled by this ruse at all. Somehow, they knew that the server was a VPN server and so was likely sending their signal out of country. And they refused to allow me to sign into their service. Its all well and good to advertise a VPN for what it is good for, but this is a false promise. VPNs can not always allow you to watch streaming content from other countries. Becau7se they have no control over how smart the broadcasters are.

A couple of years after they came out, I replaced all my lights with the CFL bulbs because they were promised to last longer. This was VERY important because they cost several times as much as any standard incandescent bulb. It doesn't matter that it uses 1/3 the power if it only lasts as long as a regular bulb, you still wont recover your up front investment before you have to buy another one. The first generation of LED bulb I bought was a fiasco, a complete waste of money. But the second generation after the high intensity LED bulbs came out has now replaced most of my CFLs. So far, they are working well.

My current iMac: 2012. Will replace sometime in the next year or 2 (and the new Macs (M1) are much more efficient as they use the new M1 (etc.) processors. iPhones: 5 years (current is 1.5 years old). iPad: 5 years old. Not replacing. Apple: created the smart phone model that everyone copies. And yes, they innovate. Not year to year, but inexorably the iPhones become ever more capable over time. Don't buy one every year or 2. Every 5 or 6 is fine for most people. The whole Apple throttling thing has been completely misrepresented in the media - and in this video - in my opinion. My iPhone 6 at 3.5 years of life had 98% charge capacity left. No issue there at all...

Nobody exposes the "college textbook cartel". I'm serious this time. Back in college, a math professor told me how it worked: 1. Textbooks for introductory courses, physics 101, for example, are huge, are a relatively good value, and don't change much at all between editions. 2. Textbooks for upper-division classes have fewer students and the used book market reduces revenue over time. The solution? A. Jack up the price of these upper-division textbooks. B. Every few years, come out with a new "edition" which is NOT AT ALL better than the previous BUT has chapters and exercises rearranged so that it's hard to use previous editions. Voila .. problem solved -- good for book publishers .. bad for starving students.

"Why has this light bulb lasted so long and others not so much? Is it planned obsolescence?" Yes planned obsolescence is a thing. Shadowed my cousin replace a capacitor on a $1K+ Samsung TV he owned that had gone bad so he could teach me how to solder. The capacitor wasn't rated for the current/flow passing through it. It was a built in time bomb. As for the light, it lasts so long but puts off hardly any lumens compared to other bulbs. "A star that burns twice as bright burns half as long." The video even points out that it's run on limited power, not full power. Look at an engine. Drive your camery gently and It'll last 200,000+ miles. Drive it balls out as hard it will go and it lasts a single Nascar race. Work as hard as you possibly can and you're dead tired half into your shift, pace your effort and you're ready to go out after a day of work. Same principal.

@SonicVenom829 That would only work if the medicine in question either lets the patient die or live. It's much more of a grey area. There's medicines that keep you healthy as long as you take it. Stuff like benzodiazepine it's great when it's working but if you're unfortunate to have benzodiazepine reactions then getting off of that medication could literally kill you. And what's worse is that a lot of doctors prescribe it.

Not really in the sense that companies are free to compete, so if one isn't really working, some of their patients would go to a rival company, whereas the pheabus cartel solved this via testing and fines.

This is the same reason my computer mouse stops holding the clicks. If you take one apart you will see that there is a thin plastic edge which presses on a larger softer button every time you click. Because the part pressing is thin and the button it's pressing on is soft, there is a dent which forms in the button over time. That dent makes the mouse stop clicking or release the click if not pressed on hard enough. The harder you press the fast the dent grows. If you want to repair the issue you need to pull the pads which are glued to the bottom of the mouse in order to access the screws. You can try slightly tightening the screw on the side with the issue. Tends to help a little. If the screw threads are close you can adjust them with more accuracy. Another way to increase the life of the mouse is to add a layer of tape to the top of the button. I used gorilla moving tape since it's thicker.

I have a hanging lamp in my sleeping room with 3 E14 lightbulbs. First I used three 2.5W lamps, that lasted less than a year. Than I made a teardown on the last workung for making measurements and fouund that they are driven by four times the current as in the LED-chip datasheet was written for a proper use of that LED chips. In sight of the producer, they haven't to last long! Than I saw a video about the Dubai-LED Lightbulbs. Than I purchased three 4W-lamps instread, but added a 1µF 400V capacitor in line with the whole installation, that brings them down to just 1W each. Now I've got more light as with the 2.5W type, useed before,but the lightbulbs are'nt getting any hot over houres of use, and the energy is dropped from 7.5W to just 3W. I thing, I never will be forced to replace that lightbulbs any more!
