1) whatever we buy may be (" obsolete, not the latest" pretty soon)
2) there is a new marketing philosophy developing by / forced on to Apple by competition
3) We would be better off now concentrating on USING our devices rather than concerned about chasing new technology UNTIL that new technology coincides with our NEEDS.
4) Loyalty to a particular manufacturer can then be more flexible. At least, given that Apple has virtually said, never mind your needs, our needs are our own marketing imperatives and we think you will buy Apple because you have bought Apple to the tune of over 100 billion devices so far.
(5 What we spend on a device will now dictate which brand we may choose, in this latest "new model" race.

Now, for me, the Mini offers something that I want...so I can see my way clear to buying it.
I just heard about the Google Nexus 10 announcement....it looks a bit underwhelming for my needs....so I think I will just live with my Google Nexus 7...but I may take a look at the Nook HD tablet, just to see what it's features are.
Microsoft is coming with the Surface....got to admit it is intriguing...but the RT model won't work for me...and the Pro models like like ultrabooks...and since they will run i5 and i7 processors, I'm thinking they are going to have heat dissipation issues. I'm going to sit back and let others be the beta testers, as I have plenty of laptops that can run Win8, which I can get for a mere $40.
If I had an iPad 1 or 2 right now, I'm be hard pressed to not get the 4 if I had the cash. But with the 3, I see nothing compelling. If I spent a lot of time playing games, I might want to look a little harder. I'm sure there are some hardcore iPad gamers what might want to update, though. For that group, they have to make a decision. It could very well be worth it to them.
