    Not all changes made down the line improve the product. Many changes are made to cut cost, cut weight. This may make for a less reliable product. Classic example was the 3DO game stations, First ones made still work, weigh twice as much and 2nd generation and cost more. However, you would be very hard pressed to find any 2nd or 3rd generation players still working. Almost every single 1st generation still works. Hmm, fuel for thought.
