TLTP 029 – Planning To Fail

With a warranty slightly shorter than its expected lifespan, here’s this month’s episode of The Last Tuesday Project!

This month Alex asks Hayley and Jane about planned obsolescence? Is there a massive conspiracy in the technology industry? How far back does the term’s usage go? Are iPhones getting slower? And what’s with the lightbulbs?

Do you like what we do and want to show your support? Well, you can now give us a helping hand via Patreon! Just go to If every listener gave us a dollar a month, we will be able to furnish Tuesday Tower with all sorts of hipster paraphernalia, as well as get Shaun a Hipstermatic 3000 beard trimmer for his birthday. Please donate – he’s in dire need of a trim.
