I see the problem.
You are linking research and manufacturing. They are not one and the same.
Alas, it is true that manufacturing depends upon profit (we are capitalists, are we not?) and profit depends on sales and if something lasts forever sales do not continue.
I do my best. I've jury rigged my dishwasher a couple of times now. To start it, I short the green wire to the black wire. To reset, I short the red to the black.
I'll show them!

My water heater finally gave out after 35 years.
My car is almost 13 years old.
I still use a second-hand original IPad, and find an IPhone 6s to be just fine for most everything I need to do (I did just replace the battery to take advantage of Apple’s discount, which ends this year).
I tend to fix what can be fixed when it needs fixing, and buy quality as I can afford it.
