I am now feeling saturated. Not by a sudden spring downpour or an unnecessary 5th pint in the Windsor Castle but by the arrival of new technology that exceeds my needs by some distance.
We have seen this before with PCs. Just what is the benefit to be gained by having a extra few Mhz over a 3.2GHz Quad core CPU, more than 32Gb of RAM, and a 2TB HDD when you only use less than half of any of it.?
Being a bit over the age when any thoughts of breeding should be discouraged, my eyes cannot make out the difference between the latest high definition displays and those with half the pixels. Likewise. my ears top out at about 10Khz so any super dooper sound chip is wasted on me. As for storage, I regard anything kept on a smartphone as a short term cache that is vulnerable to loss or damage. Nothing is long term. Anything that could be is downloaded and archived to my local NAS.
My first smartphone was a bit rubbish (Galaxy Ace 5830i) which did its job for a year or so. Its technical shortcomings became very evident and it was put in a drawer. The current generation of kit is so far beyond most users and my needs that extra new shiny can only really appeal to people who value shiny.
We are well beyond "good enough". Now the focus should be on keeping the software and OS up to date, and more than anything else, price.
