British Telecom used to have a policy of recovering old and tidying overhead cables.
It used to be days when engineers in that job sphere had some spare time, they were sent to check on the situation and recover anything not in use.
Here it's up to Bill Gates to organise by causing a loss of face for the higher-ups.
Even genuine Philips product is most likely made in China. Like Makita/Maktec - both products may be made in China or almost any of Makita's global factories. They make very little in Japan.
The Maktec product is built down to a price with less features and shorter warranty yet most internal components are identical to Makita. It gives them a wider market share.
Caveat emptor applies more and more nowadays and consumers should rely on reviews or personal recommendations. I checked out a Baan&Beyond power tool range that looked good 'on special' only to find there were no spare parts available, eg no extra battery for cordless, let alone a replacement and their rep agreed it was a 'disposable' product line.
This throws up more questions than it offers guidance. Facts/misinformation/disinformation
An easy example would be Hunter Biden's laptop. It has been confirmed to be genuine, people that have appeared in emails have confirmed that it is genuine(Tony Bobulinski for one), the Biden's never denied it is genuine. Yet officially the Hunter Biden laptop is "Russian disinformation" because the contents are absolutely devastating to the Biden administration - proving corruption at a staggering level the likes never before seen by a US President.
For thethaiger purposes should the laptop(again just an example) be treated as fact, which it in reality is. Or because the left MSM and big tech censors desperately yet falsely tried claiming it is a hoax (without any evidence of it being a hoax) before the election - for obvious reasons, should we pretend that it is a hoax - which according to big tech "fact checkers" it is?
I would rather see facts referring to truthful events, not facts referring to something that aligns with someones personal feelings and opinion regardless of its basis in the truth.
