TECHNOLGY: Norelco Replacement Heads and Amazon

Sunday, August 15, 2010

My razor desperately needed new heads.

So I googled: “Philips Norelco HQ9 SpeedXL Replacement Heads” on Amazon

But, I can’t wait for the pony express to deliver it.

So, I bought it at Tar-jeee (Sounds better than bulls eye!) where I paid 7$ more in price but minus the Amazon shipping.

Funny thing is that I can’t put in an Amazon review.

The product comes from Norelco with no directions. I got it in. I R a fat old white guy injineer. It was hard to install. And, the replacement part not as good as original.

Interesting that one Amazon commenter called the heads “planned obsolescence”.

Sounds like they try to lock people into their products. Argh!

“It’s absurd and anti-life to be part of a system that compels you to sit in confinement with people of exactly the same age and social class. That system effectively cuts you off from the immense diversity of life and the synergy of variety; indeed it cuts you off from your own past and future, sealing you in a continuous present much the same way television does…” – John Taylor Gatto
