The Urge to Trade Up

The problem with being a techie type is that you look at a perfectly good device. Then you read the reviews. Then you conclude that for just a little more, you could get a better one. Then you read the reviews. Then you conclude that for just a little more, you could get a better one.

After several cycles of lather, rinse, repeat, you discover that the device you would like to buy costs a bit more than four times the price of the device that you have now. And the device that you have now is ok for what it does, but the new and better device could do so much more.

In your copious spare time, of course.

I think we'll think about this a bit longer. :)
