I'm a late adopter. I'm still carrying a Blackberry 8703 (courtesy of mine employer) and my iPod is about four years old. Don't get me wrong ... budget permitting, I'd be just like this guy. But right now I have this condition, commonly known as Emptius Walletitis, and it pretty much guarantees that all of my toys are someone else's hand-me-downs.
Of course, being a late adopter has its advantages. I wasn't stung by Apple when they released the iPhone for $499 and then dropped the price a couple months later. I've never taken home a gadget that didn't work because of a flaw that was later patched by the manufacturer. And Windows Vista is a newcomer to my house - it arrived on the laptop my wife purchased earlier this year.
So what about you? Are you a late adopter or a gadget grabber?
