That's the modern world it appears. Just to mention a few, 'Programmed 
Obsolescence" being one of those trends, together with the almost 
monopolistic dumping on the world market of Chinese products which have, 
overall, less than average quality, even when sold under 
'prestigious'(?) brand names. People want to buy 'cheap' and this is the 
result. No wonder the world is going to crap. :-/  [end rant]

Sorry to read about your problems. I have no solution to offer, I am 
afraid, but from time to time I stumble also into similar nonsensical 
market shit.
