Don't abstain from technology. Just consider whether you can stretch the utility of your laptop, phone or wifi-enabled toaster for a little bit longer. When the latest model of shmablet dances before you, all beveled edges and shiny newness, it often clouds the simple truth – that your old model still works wonderfully well. Why not skip a generation or two? That way, when your aged device finally bites the dust, you'll really appreciate all the amazing things its successor can do.
