Why do we do it?
Why is it that the minute they introduce a new tech gadget or updated software that we feel an overwhelming need to own it immediately?
Are we afraid we are going to miss out on something?
Does it make us cool in they eyes of our friends?
When it comes down to it, do we truly NEED the latest technology?
It would save me a ton of money if I could ever figure out the answer to this question!
I am getting better at holding off with some things.
I have kept my HTC myTouch longer than any other cell phone I have ever owned and I haven’t even been tempted to order the new Windows 8 operating system. Don’t ask me about keyboards, RAM and external hard drives though.
Photography software still tends to be a weakness of mine too. I have far too many image editing programs and I have bought every version of PaintShop Pro (since long before it was part of Corel) within hours of being introduced for years now. LOL
Is it an addiction or is it really no different than the little old lady who collects hundreds of things with roosters on them just because she loves roosters?
Yeah, maybe that’s it. Maybe we’re just technology collectors.
That’s not the same as technology hoarders, right? (grin)
