the problem is things evolve at a rate faster than we expect. some times its good for tech to reach a "plateau". My parents TV set is a good 15 years old, its 1080P HD, it still works and it works great. my buddy on the other hand thought he was smart to go with his HDTV, then got rid of it cus 3D TV came out, so he got rid of his old stuff and replaced it with a 3D TV, 3D video games, 3D movies, etc, only to find out his 3D TV was now becoming obsolete, and guess what he did? yup you guessed it, he got rid of it, bought another HDTV to replace it, then a few years later he hopped on the 4K TV bandwagon and got rid of his old tv as it was giving him problems, now he is still having problems and thinks he spent more than $15,000 on upgrading technology, where as my parents spent $0 in the last few years and their tv still works. some times you win some times you lose.
anyways without going largely off topic, I GET IT that technology becomes obsolete faster than we wish, and yeah it sucks, but some times we are gifted these, mine was a gift from my wife, if it was up to me i would not have bought it I would have spent the money on a nice camera maybe. My friend spent thousands of dollars buying music from itunes he gets paid monthly so every month when he got paid he would load up his itunes account with $100 or $200 and buy his fav songs and albums, but now he moved on to streaming and he now just pays for streaming services like Tidal, spotify, and what ever data and roaming fees it costs him to stream his music anywhere, even when he is driving in the states.
