If not seeing a reason to pay for a mobile device and the required monthly service fees is 'resisting', then I'm guilty. From that point of view, I'm also 'resisting' golf because I won't buy clubs or pay the monthly club dues. Is it 'resisting' to not pay for something I don't need or want?
Unlike mobile devices, I can claim to have tried Twitter a half dozen times for a minimum of two weeks each, and LinkedIn twice for several months each time. After all, they're free and didn't cost me anything to try except leisure time. I didn't find any personal value to either. That may be due to an inability to use either effectively, or maybe my overall lack of interest in social interaction, or maybe I just guard my personal life too jealously, especially where Facebook is concerned. But I don't consider trying something repeatedly and losing interest as 'resisting'. Ignoring, perhaps.
I will venture that my lack of interest in social media is a large part of why I find no use for a 'smart' mobile device. I've got a low-end 'flip phone' and a pay-as-you-go service, and I charge it for road trips. I don't need or want it any other time; it's a 'just in case', nothing more or less.
I don't care what the rest of the world has embraced. I care about the screams I going to hear from the users I support when we can no longer get W7 drivers for new systems and have to shove Metro down their throats.
