Oh yes, we hear that all the time, especially for certain "innovations" and "super-performing" devices or products.
hehe smiliehehe smilie

Yes exactly. The whole thing can also be summed up as "FUCK OUR OLD PRODUCT, BUY THE SAME THING WITH SLIGHT DIFFERENCES SO WE CAN MAKE MORE MONEY!!!!"

(Also, another thing that annoys me with a lot of products these days is the misuse of the phrase "Solid State." Solid state refers to a TV, radio, etc. that uses transistors instead of tubes. Using it to apply to something like a smartphone makes no sense.... unless there actually are smartphones out there that use tubes... in which case, the hipster or steampunk crowds would be all over that!)

Yes, sadly enough, they are wasting a lot of good products and replacing them with short-lived, "one-way" items. Furthermore, health and environmental issues are considerable, if proper treatments and equipments are lacking.
