Really like the idea behind lastyearsmodel.org. Even though I would love new shiny things all the time there doesn’t seem much that point most of the time.
Examples for me are:
- iPod. I still have a 30Gb old style model. New touch would be great, but mine still works and plays music well. New iPod touch might be nice when it holds 128Gb+ of music and video
- Phone. Still using my 2+ year old HTC windows based mobile. I would actually probably use some of the software that I could get on an iPhone, but it still isn’t yet worth the price.
- Xbox 360. My old Xbox mainly just runs XBMC media centre, the Xbox360 just isn’t as good media player.
- New dishwasher. My old one isn’t perfect, is a bit noisy, but the hassle of changing something that isn’t quite perfect of this size just isn’t worth it. Besides is better for the environment to get the most out of this one.
- New kitchen knifes. Who doesn’t like new Kitchen knifes, but the old ones can be sharpened up nicely.
- Wireless-N router. Wired is better if messier.
- New speakers. The old ones work ok, but my new amplifier probably deserves something a bit better than 10 year old missions.
Life just seems to be one upgrade. Or does it.comments powered by Disqus
