Default Unexpected gift

I have been using my first generation iPad for about 6 years now, it's getting slow and I am no longer able to update it. I took my sweetie to Best Buy tonight to drop off his computer for repair and I was killing time playing with the iPad's on display. He came over and asked which one I liked and bought me an iPad pro!!!! I was stunned, this is such a splurge for us, he is a keeper for sure. So excited I just had to share.

With laptops, smartphones, computers and tablets the operating systems and software get constantly updated and after a few years the hardware just is not powerful enough to make the device useable any longer. I'm not one to desire the newest phone, computer, cars etc, but I too have experienced what Jeanann did with her iPad. There comes a point where it crashes and freezes all the time and the battery just won't last.

I'd say she did well hanging onto her 1st generation iPad for this long.

Obsolescence is manufactured in. Like it or not. It is all about $$$ and the consumers "wants".
