以前在種籽實小遇到類似狀況,自助管理的圖書館偶爾會掉書,某些家長主張設置圖書管理員,但是不可能有足夠家長願意輪流當義工鎮守,於是就說要用少許經費僱人。其實,掉的書一年下來頂多幾千塊錢,還不夠付管理員一個月的薪水呢。

總之,很多現代「給人方便」的電器,本身的維護保養已經成為現代家事重頭戲了。

唉 這也是我退出電子圈的ㄧ個原因 自己所作的東西不過是個騙人對人生活無意的'消費'品 有時覺得比一本好笑的蠟筆小新還沒用

The industrial revolution taken human jobs in the hands of machines wherever it make sense. I think 95% of the homes in the US has a dishwasher. They are not expensive at all (250 -1000 USD). However, it is just like every house has 2-3 cars in the US does not mean families in Taiwan would need even a single car.

It is for the most part a status symbol more than usefulness. If you can afford a human maid that is great status symobl. If you have a humanoid robot cleaning dishes, that is a great talking point of the super rich. There is always a market for a novel product like the Segway or 100 inch LCD TV.
It may not be useful to everyone in every country.

But an automatic checkout system for library has been used in US library for years. It is getting more popular in the last 2 years. Maybe it would get pouplar as the gracery bar code scanner in the future.
