As you know from my columns here on SlashGear, I’m a bit of a technology fanatic. Whether it’s a boring external hard drive or an oh-so-exciting HDTV, I’m always willing to get my hands on the latest and great products tech firms have to offer.
But as of late, I’ve come across a surprisingly large number of people who have taken issue with my mentality on buying tech goodies. They say that buying gadgets too soon is a huge mistake, since the kinks aren’t necessarily worked out just yet. And the idea of buying worthwhile options now makes little sense to them, since they’ll become “obsolete” in no time.
