Re: IoT Meeting : What am I doing here ?
Its good to see that there are even today Most Enlightened Consumers like yourself who think Twice before putting their hard-earned Money behind some new Toy which a Manufacturer tries to sell onto you in the name of a "Must-Have".
I for one believe in making sure all my Electronic Devices stick around for as long as possible by keeping them in reasonably good condition always.
And I also,don't believe in Buying stuff which I have no intention of using-Like ever.
My Laptop(A Workhorse Dell) which I have been using for 4 years is now starting to breakdown (Half the Keys don't work anymore),the Mouse stopped functioning a year back and nobody can really predict how much longer it will go on working.
My family have been pestering me to Get a New one for ages now and sure I can afford one but I plan to use this machine for as long as I can before spending any of my hard-earned Money to get a new one only when this machine breaks down totally.
In the mean-time,I can use my cash elsewhere or just for Building up my Savings pool further.
I know folks who have 6-10 Smartphones & 3-4 Tabs just lying around their homes not knowing what to do with them.
I take the opposite view.Would rather hold a Big Savings Pile rather than useless Electronics Junk which I never plan on using.
That simplifies Decision-making for me considerably.
Simplicity always works.No Doubts about that one is there?
Same goes for this IoT Wave also.
When I absolutely need something ,I go out and get it.
Not before and definitely not when some Advertiser tells me to get it as the "Next Hot Thing". LOL!!!
