@mattbuchanan: Buy it, because you like it as it is now, not because of what you’re promised it will be later.

What a great article by former Gizmodo writer Matt Buchanan!

You might buy a new phone that’s missing something, thinking, “It will get better.” No, it won’t. If I were to tell you one thing about buying technology, it is this: Buy something because you like what it is right now, not because you think it’s going to get better, or that one day it’ll be what you really wanted it to be.

Truer words have never been spoken when it comes to gadgets. Matt goes on to write about all kinds of over-promises, which eventually under-delivered, and he does so without any bias.
