Technology advances so quickly that by the time you have researched and gotten comfortable with the idea of purchasing the latest gadget or newest phone or computer it is no longer the newest.
To add to the difficulty, in the world of technology, the newest is not always the best either (think Windows Vista as a glaring example). By the time enough actual consumer reviews are available to be of use (as opposed to the numerous ‘manufacturer sponsored’ reviews in the weeks before and days after a new release)thousands have already shelled out their money.
None of this is meant to imply that new things are bad or to be avoided in anyway. It is simply to say when considering new software, computers, phones, or peripherals some considerations should be kept in mind. If, like the vast majority of people, budget and financial considerations play a part of the decision making process in a purchase, there are some things to keep in mind.
