I don't update my technological gadgets until I can afford to and need to, which usually means a fair while after new products are released. The upside is that often that means the manufacturers have had time to work a few of the bugs out.
No!! I just replace things when they wear out!! My last laptop,which my son bought for me after I became too ill to work,lasted 5 YEARS!!!! No one believed me,when I told them that I had used it so much and for so long,so it was a good thing I had kept the receipts!!! Technology is not really my 'thing',though I do enjoy the benefits of the internet!
I really only think computers need to be kept updated say every 4 years or so.
Having said that, I'm the one with a 9 year old mobile phone.....and sadly
find it hard to update things.
That's right.......if it ain't broke why fix it?
Plus we just do not have that kind of money, and we only just got a flat screen t.v. 2 months ago.
I am of the first kind. I don't like waste, so I only ever update my technological gadgets when it is absolutely necessary. The idea of updating your mobile phone every year is to me the most ridiculous notion.
I make my gadgets last as long as possible.My phone screen has been cracked for over a year, but it still works. I can't face learning new tricks. My computer was replaced for me by my daughter and son-in-law cos it was totally dead. Shouldn't do much beyond email. I still miss it. I also can't stand all that waste.
