Actually, the expectation of high reliability has increased. As more things go electronic, the users expect the devices to work first time, every time. The fastest way to get your product panned in the media is to have someone tell someone else that your stuff is crap. You are done, no appeal, no pardon, that's it. So if you do not design your device to be reliable, you will soon be out of business.

There is no one-size fits all answer. High reliability clearly means different things in different markets, as does product failure. For example, the last paragraph of this article has an error that was missed during editing. Does that matter? Not really.

Of all the exhibits in the Pre-Apocalypse Era Museum, Breek was always in awe of the unearthed details and true-to-scale reproduction of a technological creation space that the long gone humans had once inhabited.
