build to break
So this is the short version of the story. I bought a television 3 years ago, flat screen and stuff, it cost me 499 euro. The damn thing broke. I went back to the shop were I bought it and they said (suprise suprise) that it couldn't be fixed and that the warrenty (2 years in belguim) is over so they couldn't send it back to the factory. Only thing for me left to do was to buy a new one.
Bad luck? Possibly. But doubtfull. I think you have all seen the documentary build to break and others like it, this is just crap and should be handled.

What's the drafting zone?
If it means we have to do something against this mentality that profits allows to waste raw materials and energy to produce cheap products that are dumped after minimum time, Yes
