It’s time for me to make a confession: I absolutely love gadgets. I don’t buy gadgets very often, but lately I’ve been fascinating about purchasing an iPhone.
On one hand, I see the usefulness of the iPhone. It’s a phone, camera, iPod and has amazing applications. If I purchased an iPhone, I could reduce the amount of stuff I carry around everyday. Also, being able to connect with friends and family with the touch of a few buttons is pretty cool.
On the other, hand what about the cost? On average iPhone plans run about $1,500 per year.
And I wonder about the implications of feature creep?
What do you think? Do gadgets, like the iPhone, enhance the concept of simple living? And are they worth the cost?
