@WolfieZero very little content here: many new features are shiny, it’s surprising people don’t choose tech based on needs.
Maybe could have peeled back at least one or two layers - how/why are people making these decisions? how are the new shiny features developed to entice people to buy stuff if it’s not needs based? is it possible to define/quantify any of these things, or improve our ways of communicating it so we know how to a) develop better stuff if we are the engineers, b) make better buying decisions if we are consumers?
I imagine this happen to many people, even those who know how their tool work.
Simple tools that do very little but which really does it are rare and precious for me.
