Just caught a documentary by Simon Armitage who is a poet and gadget freak. His documentary was entitled "Upgrade Me" and reasons for the trend. As an upgrader to new iPad from the original (skipped iPad 2) it got me thinking of my own personal reason. As content is king (but also function and ease of use of device) and it covers the 3 pillar needs of Work, Knowledge and Art (meaning literature, film & TV & music) then upgrade for me was more about enhancing the experience of accessing content for all three on what for me was the best device at the time.
Interested on others thoughts and points raised by Simon's program. Do we upgrade to keep up with our 'peers' or satisfy our 'inner shopper' or is there a more valid and compelling reason. Interested in views.
