Steve Jobs (via headfortheburrow)
It’s great. You always have something cutting edge. It’s faster, can do more, has a bigger screen, more gadgets, longer battery life. What can be better?
But it sometimes evolves too quickly. You’ve got the best, then two months later it’s old technology! Old news even. And that means that to stay on top, you need the next best thing, which usually costs more.
Take Apple for example. The range of iPods. Wow, it’s amazing! One year later, the new model is released. What cost you a fortune for the new craze is old news. It’s not cool anymore. So you buy the next one. It’s expensive.
You could always buy the beta products. They’re usually an average price, for the next must have features. That’s not usually a problem, but they’re often flawed with bugs. Hence them being a beta. Which is never good.
So technology, I love keeping up to date with it and how it’s always changing, but I also hate having to keep on top of it.
