<VV> Bad Paint not from China

You picked the wrong product to talk about quality.  I worked 25 years at
the world's largest semiconductor maker. 24 years in a manufacturing
engineering position and one year in manufacturing quality control. Do you
know how many million transistors have to be made perfectly to make a
microprocessor.  Cost is a big thing, but quality takes presentence cost all
the time.

Although we probably should not use China as a scapegoat (they do have their
shortcomings) the general gripe is about the decline in the quality of
manufacturing, among other things.  Cost being sited as the usual culprit.  
My question is how long will it be before cost drives out any kind of
quality.  We all talk about a disposable society yet everything today  is
disposable.  Where does it end?
The newest computer I own is seven years old so there are things I cannot
do.  I should upgrades but do I have to buy a new computer every two
 I think everyone gets the point.
