Three days ago, I wrote a piece about hte iPhone turning 5 years old.
A while back, I heard something that made all the sense in the world to me. Throughout the years, when we by a new piece of technology, the moment we take it out of the box, it is virtually obsolete. New chips makie it go faster, the software gets outdated, new types of ports and plugs to get, as well as CD drives or DVD drives vs the old flopy discs.
What I heard was, and what seems to be the genius of the iPhone is the apps. They are updated by the originator, and made compatible.
Now, think for a minute. The more apps you get, the more valuable the device becomes. Compare that to getting a new device and it is obsolete. This really got me thinking... The longer I have my iPhone, the more valuable it becomes.
