Planning Obsolescence of Your Technological Products
New products every three months. On how you use your technological products is totally upto your flair and income. There is always a saturation in any product category. You buy a I-Pod of 80 GB capacity carrying 30,000 songs capacity. How long would you stick to this product. Even if you are a Music Maniac you probably would get saturated with the product in a couple of months.
Similar to the Music Players and PMP’s you have your phone. If there is a breakthrough technology like introduction of 3G in India or some other tech like LTE in US or 4G for higher internet and downloading speeds, one need not go for a costly upgrade unless you are a millionaire and are doing all the shopping for gifting and snob appeal alone.
So while buying a new product make sure that you keep the utility and value at the forefront and make a decision which you do not regret on a later date.
