So in the news this morning, everyone’s talking about what Apple might announce today, and the assumption is that it is some sort of tablet device, perhaps a counter to the Amazon Kindle and the Barnes and Noble Nook. Already, I have coworkers who are planning to buy it when they don’t even know what it is!
While I understand the desire to have the newest and the best items, I think there are some benefits to waiting. I like to wait and see what people think of things before I buy them. In addition, this lets the company work out any bugs with the systems. And hey, sometimes the price ends up dropping too.
Of course, watching for reviews and talking to people who have bought the new item just makes me want to have it for myself even more.
I don’t have any plans to buy the new Apple product, if it is really a tablet. I have a Kindle already (the old version) and really don’t need anything different. But what about you? Are you an early adopter? Are you planning to watch for updates of the Apple event online, constantly refreshing any live feeds?
