But even if I succumb to the lure of buying a Kindle or updating my iPhone or taking the plunge and buying a PS4 (so that I can play Middle-Earth: Shadows of Mordor), in time the joy of the purchase will pass. It will cease to be new and remarkable. And I’ll realize that there’s some other piece of technology that I need to be lusting after. The cycle – the vicious, capitalist cycle – never ends.
Oh, technology. You are constantly growing and updating and trying to get me to spend money on you.
I must be strong, lest you wear down my defenses.
