SAN FRANCISCO (KCBS)— Smart phones are becoming the norm in mainstream culture with many of us even owning tablets or e-book readers too. But when techies go to events like the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, do they suffer from burnout?
Continuous technological advances in products drive the tech industry and can cause for eventual buyer’s remorse, especially if the upgrade is minor. When High-definition TV’s came out, a lot of people jumped on that bandwagon to buy them just like everyone’s doing with Apple iPhones.
The question is once you have all those gadgets, do you really need all the latest and greatest upgrades? Of course the industry depends on convincing us that we do. What was once the greatest product a year ago is now much too old and slow by the tech industry’s account. For instance my Apple iPhone 4s seemed perfectly fine until they announced the iPhone 5.
