That, however, is a different subject altogether from the delight in using and the utility of older tools. We are fortunate to have the choice.

"Those people" produce what your "consumer society" consumes. And at least they can produce things -- "consumer society" is an economy so much driven into the corner, it can't build any everyday object without crashing itself. Respect those who still make something that others can enjoy, be it cameras, photos or vacuum cleaners.
