Habe auch noch ein paar super Tipps:
1. Einweg-Rasierer mehrmals benutzen
2. Es muss nicht immer das neuste iPhone sein: ein solides Mittelklasse-Smartphone, mit zusätzlicher Schutzhülle, kann Jahre halten

This is a result of conflating "apps" and "activities", combined with heavy branding. Browsing the web with Chrome is not a task, but collecting info from one web site and summarizing it on another, for example, is.
