Lowest cost, technically acceptable doens't always work

The lowest cost technically acceptable is the reality of consumer market electronics today. We, as consumers, do not want to pay more than we have to to get the things we would like. I know that many people look at the cost of a new cellular phone today and throw up their hands—1300 US dollars for the high-end models for many phones. If you want 5g, it is only available on the highest-end phones.

The cost of technology is always an issue. It is all about what we as human beings need. Need is a funny word, and honestly, except for in an emergency, we don’t need a cellular phone. But, then we have to consider, would we have had a situation where we would need a cellular phone, and suddenly we need one. GPS, camera, and applications also create situations that expand our needing phones.

It is funny, though; I remember the dawn of cellular phones. They were not a need. They were a luxury, and honestly, unlike many luxuries, they did not work well. But when you needed them, back then, and they worked, they were game-changers. The game they changed, in the end, was the work-life balance game. Have you ever played that game? You work from 8 in the morning until 5 pm. Then you go home, except with cell phones, the work world could still reach us wherever we were.

The difference sometimes between want and need is slim. I need a cellular phone for my wife, mother, sisters, extended family, and friends to get ahold of me. I use my phone all the time for work. But, in the past ten years, I have given up a little of my time, because I can always be available for work.

I wonder what the next innovation will do to my time?
