There’s so much hype with these next generation of gadgets that people are prompted to spawn websites that will gather the entire buzz like PS4Forums, or the creation of these cool but sappy concepts.
I remember myself being a new gadget patron back in the era of Nokia. Nokia is clever not to include all the cool features in one cellphone to keep their upcoming products interesting with the new collaboration of features. And being a victim of the pitch, I always want the latest releases of Nokia phones.
But then I learned, upon fatuous spending of thousands on cellphones, that I can’t match the progression of technology. Even if I got the latest gadget right now, it won’t last until the release of the successor or the release of a better product from competitors.
If you plan to chase technology, then you have lost. Invention and innovation will not wait for you, whether you are ready to purchase financially or not. These companies will think of profit and competition; and they’ll keep on releasing better gadgets that will surpass the majority to provide leeway for the prodigal to boast their “coolness”.
The thing is, you just enjoy what you have now. What if these companies released a newer product? You still have your iPhone 4 that will still function as a phone and as an “iPhone”; or you still have your PlayStation 3 and an indubitably great selection of games to enjoy.
These companies can only offer a new product, but it is us who should know how to savor our life and all our possessions. Don’t let these new gizmos make you think the way their companies are thinking.
What’s the last gadget you upgraded?
