Some time ago, there was a news item about a Japanese kid who sold one of his kidneys so he could buy an iPad. A little extreme if you ask me!
He obviously doesn’t know about built-in obsolescence. If iPads had been around when I was a kid, the old ones would still be around today. As it is, the iPad this kid buys will be all but useless next year. Sure, it will still work, but it will be so far behind the new one that he won’t want to be seen dead with it. Wonder what he’ll sell for the upgrade?
There is one saving grace in all this though, someone, somewhere, has a new kidney that will last them a lifetime. Now that’s what I call a really smart upgrade.
