I know! I know!
You are staring at an old netbook in a dark corner. But hey, it looks ready to assist me. 🙂
Come to think of it. When I first ever got in contact with modern technology in the late eighties, I could still remember that clunky analog cellular phone I lugged on everywhere. I was too proud then to be one of the first to go wireless.
But then, it was short-lived. A few months later, the first GSM phone came out in the market. The word digital became the new byword. Overnight, my phone was considered passe.
That was an eye-opener for me. Never get lured to go with the bandwagon when it comes to new technology. Unless you have the financial resources to stay in vogue, wait. Sooner or later, the latest technology today is old technology tomorrow.
Imagine if you have collected those original cassettes, VHS and Betamax tapes, eight-track tapes, Mini-Disks and digital cassettes? You have to maintain the original players to savor the contents of your collection. Or, call it charge to experience and leave them all in a room, locked, stocked and forgotten.
I have been tempted to upgrade several times. But, I am not falling for the ruse. I wait.
I am sure I will get my money’s worth in due time. 🙂
