Just when I thought I had every piece of Apple hardware I could afford, Apple just gave me another reason to rack up credit card debt.
The company unveiled yesterday the latest upgrades to its cadre of products, including the new iPhone 5, with preorders starting Friday. (Even its iconic white earphones got a makeover.)
Still, the centerpiece of the announcement was the iPhone 5, a smaller, sleeker, faster version of the iPhone 4s, which just came out last year.
“Siri, is this what ‘duped’ feels like?”
Here’s the thing: I just got an iPhone. I just bought the iPad 2. I just upgraded to a 27-inch iMac. And the MacBook Air I purchased a couple of years ago is already severely outdated.
Now there’s a new — and better — iPhone and I can’t keep up.
Buy this one, and I promise you, in a year, there will be an even better model. And Siri might be able to understand Hawaiian!
So what does a bill-paying, student loan-owning, tech-loving girl supposed to do?
I guess pony up the $399 and get the new iPhone 5.
Anyone else got the same problem as me?
