The Pause That Refreshes

RefreshCoca Cola had this catchy ad campaign many years ago that said if you drank a Coke, it was

           THE PAUSE THAT REFRESHES

I am convinced from myself and watching others we need to FORCE ourselves to do this refreshment trick with technology every two or three years. My hard disk finally crashed on a laptop and I got a new one with the new Vista operating system. A friend's cell phone was going on four years old, falling apart, battery not lasting long, and he finally is going to get another one. A woman title company officer I know complained her first generation Blackberry PDA didn't have some kind of back space function and everyone in her office said she had the oldest model.

Getting new "updated" technology from time to time just feels good. You get refreshed. Quit being cheap and stodgy. Spend some bucks and REFRESH!!!

Liz: Excitement happens when we see that the new state is "better." I found that with a wireless mouse.

Robert: Keep the economy going but don't spend like a drunk sailor.

Jesse & Kathy: Change is the tough part till you get through it I agree.

Leesa: That's like driving off the new car lot, and then all of a sudden there's something better you are right.

Missy: Macs would seem more stable I would say, yet more incompatible in the business world.

Kris: So you are not an early adopter?: ) A late adopter? That's ok too. Whatever works for you.

Julie: We all need a "refresh" break in many areas. SO true.

I agree we need to keep current and productive with our technology, but we also need to be prudent with our expenditures. Some of us are better than others at making purchases within our budgets.

GARY, Your Vista experience must have started out better than my Vista experience has.  I'm adjusting and trying to find things I like about it and I have actually found some.  I keep thinking my TREO 650 will bite the dust as I bought insurance but it just keep ticking.  There's really nothing that I need it to do that it doesn't so I'm just going to wait it out.

Rosario: Nothing wrong at all with watching the expenses. I am all for it. But sometimes, just sometimes, it is nice to have the latest toy, and be the first on the block to have it. I think I am regressing to Christmas morn, age 7. Sorry  : )

Marchel: My Vista experience started out with the darn operating system crashing with regularity with some kind of blue screen of death until it automatically loaded two new updates. It's behaved better lately. With cell phones they seem like they get outdated after two to three years. But they have so many features BESIDES just being a phone or phone/PDA. Wait till we all get to the next gen 3G cellular on the phones. Then the browsers will go much faster, similar to Wi-Fi. I've seen the speeds and technology for 4G and then the world's going to really take off in the mobile device category.
