On pondering the merit of yet another new iPhone purchace – to which the only benefit I can see is a better camera – I got to thinking about how one might justify the purchase.
They ain’t cheap. I already have a museum grade collection of digital devices. And the one of got is ok enough.
But here’s the difference between this purchase and most – I live on my phone. According to Instant, between two and four hours per day. And I take a heap of photos. Thousands per year in fact.
So unlike a Tuxedo – which maybe gets used 40 times in ten years – maybe, just maybe, upgrading every year makes all the sense in the world.
Once it was the PC we could justify upgrading due to all that added power and functionality. Now it seems it’s the phone.
