    I remember like ten years ago Logitech and some other brands were using the Optical encoders which theoretically has an infinite lifespan. But as far as I know, nowadays only Zowie mouses uses this technology.
    I wonder, why do manufacturers abandon the newest technology and prefer something technologically much older? In contrast to Optical encoders, the analog ones are also more prone to failures and errors. Do you think it is something to do with planned obsolescence policy?
