Do you ever think that we live in a world where things are just made to be obsolete? Some of you still have electronic products from decades ago that were built to last, and might even still work.
Now, there is a new version of the iPhone 5, which will make the other iPhones obsolete. When the iPhone 4 was released with its new design, a whole new series of cases had to be designed. Especially after it was discovered during Antennagate that a case was probably needed to get decent reception.
As we mentioned before, the economy could change with the iPhone 5’s new form factor. I have received several emails from companies showing off their new iPhone 5 cases. Can we make them from recycled products from iPhone cases from the original model?
Yes, change can be a bad thing. However, it can be good, as Apple got rid of those 30-pin connectors. Now here is the catch: if you want an adapter, you will have to shell out $29 for a small stub adapter and $39 for a 7-inch adapter cable. No old iPhone users are getting any free adapter.
So, is all this change and making gadgets obsolete good? Are we stimulating the economy, or how is this working. Or is it working? I leave that entirely up to you.
