We may be moving in that direction. In WSJ interview with Kazuo Hirai the newly named Sony president is laying the groundwork for it: "Hirai described his strategic goal as teaching the company's 168,000 employees that past successes in manufacturing must be replaced by selling the harder-to-quantify 'user experience.' The world has moved on, he said, "We can't just continue to be a great purveyor of hardware products, even though some people expect us to do that."

Why not just focus on making products that are inherently easier to use, instead of putting the burden on the customer and having him or her have to learn via DVDs, in-showroom instruction, training, and other methods? That seems more sensible to me.

Returning deffective products maybe a way to force retailers to buy from quality suppliers. They now combing the world for the cheapest and whimpest, knowning that shorter life time equals more future sales. They are killing America while creating mountains of junk. We have to say no and get our money back.

I always look at the return policy before making a purchase. If it doesn't work as expected, I want an out. If there is a no return policy, the store has to expect less sales. It is a trade off between high sales and low return costs.

Very good return policy is confidence of vendor in product it sales. Exemplary example is Costco, they always support their products and consumer consider it very reliable source. In general we purchase around $12K per year. However, our return rate may around $500.

Here's my opinion: retailers and suppliers should consider non-defective product returns to be a GOOD thing. It means that sales and marketing have done a good job convincing people to buy things they don't need. Sure, some consumers realize their mistake and take the trouble to return the useless gewgaws, but most don't and that's lots of useless products sold that would not have been otherwise. JMO/YMMV

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST

What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.

michigan0 Sang Kim First, 28nm bulk is in volume manufacturing for several years by the major semiconductor companies but not 28nm FDSOI today yet. Why not? Simply because unlike 28nm bulk the LDD(Lightly Doped Drain) to minimize hot carrier generation can't be implemented in 28nm FDSOI. Furthermore, hot carrier reliability becomes worse with scaling, That is the major reason why 28nm FDSOI is not manufacturable today and will not be. Second, how can you suppress the leakage currents from such ultra short 7nm due to the short channel effects? How thin SOI thickness is required to prevent punch-through of un-dopped 7nm FDSOI? Possibly less than 4nm. Depositing such an ultra thin film less then 4nm filum uniformly and reliably over 12" wafers at the manufacturing line is extremely difficult or not even manufacturable. If not manufacturable, the 7nm FDSOI debate is over!Third, what happens when hot carriers are generated near the drain at normal operation of 7nm FDSOI? Electrons go to the positively biased drain with no harm but where the holes to go? The holes can't go to the substrate because of the thin BOX layer. Some holes may become trapped at the BOX layer causing Vt shift. However, the vast majority of holes drift through the the un-dopped SOI channel toward the N+Source,...
