Do you buy a new car every time a new one comes out? A new TV? Laptop? CPU? GPU? Mobo? Camera? No? Most people don't update their expensive technology at the same rate the manufacturer does. When they do update, all the sudden you are looking at a massive improvement.
as OCN users, it's safe to say that most of us are tech geeks, and as tech geeks we are always in the loop. therefore we're going to be constantly updated with new developments in the tech field.
same goes with any other consumer. shoe aficionados always looking to get the newest Kobe kicks or Air Yeezys, head-fiers who always feel the need to upgrade their current $500 IEMs for an "updated" $600 pair, those ricers who are constantly adding mods to their honda civics, or even those home owners who change up their furniture whenever a new IKEA catalogue comes out.
any normal consumer - probably the other 97% of the population - could care less about any of this stuff, they are perfectly content with skullcandy earbuds, a walmart "value bundle" Celeron laptop, and a 6 year old motorola RAZR.
so as tech geeks, I don't really think we have any right to complain, just let the world be
and at the end of the day... after we've died, our children have died, after the earth no longer ceases to exist, none of this stuff matters because nobody will even know we existed. after all we are just Sisyphus rolling a boulder up a hill, but in our case the boulder is transformer pads, Superbowls, Louis Vuittons, sex, twitter, different flavored Doritos, or arguing over pointless garbage like mac vs PC
well that went off topic.. c'est la vie
