The sad thing is that this generation doesn't know value, being frugal, and getting good credit. Ask any gen x "er" over 18 how much of their income they are saving, what their goals are (like buying a house), the hated question "is it paid for?", and more. Anyone that "upgrades" a device like a phone or tablet every year or so either is independently wealthy, or these are just "toys". I got three good years of hard use out of my Blackberry, and so the $179 that I spent on it three years ago was money well spent, and am now enjoying my new Droid 3. I will make it last 2-3 years as well. Sorry everyone for going off on a tangent here, but this high-tech society is a runaway train right now....
