    Gee, really?

    I must be really out of it as I'm happy with our 2003 42" 720p Pany Plasma in our "home theater". It has a better picture than the 2013 46" 1080p Samsung Slim Smart LED. But maybe in 2023....

    There's always something around the corner.

    It is why, on my budget, I upgrade every other upgrade.

    I just laugh at all those Apple fools who must have the newest iPhone every year.

    If they can afford it, why make fun of them?

    Peace,

    They camp out on the city streets - some for days.

    The best one I saw on the news, a guy they had interview earlier, came out of the store, open the box in front of the camera and proceeded to drop the phone and cracked the screen. I still remember the tears in my eyes from the look on his face.

    I have friend who works in the mobile phone business and I talked him during the recent iMadness. Since he was only hired in the Summer of this year, this was his first experience with it and he was shocked at how many people were upgrading that had no idea what benefit(s) the new phones offered and didn't care, they were simply following their base instinct and upgrading for the sake of upgrading. That, to me, is stupid consumerism and deserving of the "sheeple" tag attached to them.
