Does anyone else have this problem?
Usually the way it works with me is this (I'll use the iPod as a case study, since that's what I'm in the middle of right now):
- I hear about an iPod. Sounds kinda neat, but whatever. (wait anytime from a few days to a few months)
- Still thinking I don't want one, I learn some more about it. Wow, this thing has some cool features! It makes toast AND does laundry! I decide that I want one. This is a dangerous phase, as I can be an impulse buyer (lasts a few days to a week or two)
- If I haven't bought it, I convince myself that it's not really that great, and I would never use an iPod anyway (lasts weeks to many months)
- I slowly start learning more about an iPod, and convince myself that it really is that cool, and it would be awesome to own one, and I would too use it sometimes, maybe. Then I either buy it, or go back to the previous step.
I think I'm back to step 3 about an iPod for now. Anyway, I think I'm gonna get a new cell phone - mine has pretty bad battery life at this point, and I can upgrade for cheap (thanks, T-Mobile!).
Man, what a long day. Can't wait to start the weekend!
