    New gadgets of cause look good n nice to hold but you need $ to buy them. Who don't want N95 but cost u $1k which mean a lot to a lot of ppl. Just keep track of gadgets in the market will do, need not to buy and when want to buy, buy smart.

    I want a handphone that has 12X zoom and takes 12MP pictures and also can vibrate so that I can use it for a neck massage.

    Oh it must also tell me what's interesting is happening 100 meters ahead so that I won't miss a shot.

    Got or not?

    Since items are become more affordable, they are also getting more disposable. One would readily replaces something that will not blow a hole in their pocket with newer item that has added functionalities. Thus, because of the spending power, we are more willing to get new gadgets.
