First, it was the iPod…. then, it was the iPhone…. now, Apple have just released their latest must-have(?) gadget…. the iPad.
Their latest invention has got techno nerds drooling, but is this really necessary? Look at it this way, there are too many throwaway gadgets in the market today. We seem quite happy to want to buy the latest stuff, only to find out in about twelve months time we’ll probably see so many iPods and iPhones carelessly thrown away and buried in the landfill sites just because we want to by an iPad…. and for what purpose? To show it off to friends and colleagues? Whatever happened to the mantra that we need to make things that last, or which stand the test of time?
