Who Needs Upgrading?

Postby Prozac » Tue May 31, 2022 4:22 pm

    

Twenty years ago I was using Alcatel as my cellphone. My sister gave it to me because she can't afford to have 3 cellphone
in her bag. Nothing fancy, just handy and useful. It rings when somebody calls, and it can send text messages when I want to. I was just
innocent and naive then. I am just a bundle of unaffected simplicity and a persona devoid of artificiality. I am overly trusting, and I am
someone who believes the moon is made of cheese because my mother said it was.

Being naive for me then has a more neutral connotation and generally indicates a person who isn't familiar with the way the world works.
Naive can sometimes even have a positive slant and means that someone hasn't been jaded by the negative realities of the world like cell
phones perhaps.

I started having to grapple with the realities of owning a cellphone when I was invited to judge in a national beauty contest at ABS CBN.
Why I was invited? Well, it is a another story and it needs another page to completely unravel its mystery.

That excursion with Channel 2 was my first brush with showbiz and the modeling world. As they say, showbiz is a world of make-believe,
and this part of the world made me believe I was an apple in the basket of oranges. The place was teeming with plastics and when a
famous designer complimented my barong Tagalog, I almost puked in disbelief. I know she was just making an insincere "Chika Chika" ...
something to break the ice.

Besides who will say it was a good fit when the barong was only given to me by Philip Salvador. If you see how tall Philip was in his prime ...
it is far from a perfect fit and despite the fabric looking expensive I have to admit the barong was bigger for my size. But that open my
eyes, as an outsider looking in, I managed to enter the snake's pit and I came out unscathed.

Then my phone rang, and I was stopped by the ever-vigilant Dr. Oscar Ng. And as he giggled, as he gave me that rude meaningful smile,
he asked me if I am really going to bring my Alcatel out in the open. And as friendly advice, he said: "Butch, you are a judge, if you bring
that out people will be looking at you ..." I know Dr. Ng meant well, and I know he was just protecting me. but the way he said it was
hurtful. Truth hurts really ... whether you said it point-blank or nonchalantly

So the following morning we were off to MOA scouting for a new cell phone that will at least not embarrass me and put a little dignity
in my fast deflating ego. I remember that was 2012, I opted for Nokia 9300 ... it was cute rectangular, and kind of futuristic, the kind
of gadget used in sci-fi movies like Star Wars or the Return of the Jedi. Dr. Ng did not say anything about my choice, but at least it was
more acceptable to be seen in public than my Alcatel. That's all he said, brief ... but blunt. Uuugh!

After several years of my love affair with my Nokia 9300, I came home from vacation in the USA noticing my nephew using a fancy phone.
It was Blackberry. I was asking myself why he has a phone like that and me who was earning big bucks and busy building my 7-room house
can't afford to buy a phone of that caliber? What is wrong with that picture?

Because of that, I transitioned to Blackberry Curve 9300 (as if it was the right choice) and have my Nokia 9300 buried in oblivion. It was love,
at first sight, by the way. It has a mega keyboard, a nice screen, and good features. It comes with a calendar too, a messenger, and well, I
could also log on to the internet — connecting to any particular site was another story. But that phone made me feel hip and cool.

Years come and go and so are cell phone features and accessories. Whatever is the latest in the market now, in 3-5 months it became
antiquated and extinct - a total has been.

Then Apple came by storm and their revolutionary outcry came in too strong, the whole American community became instant converts.
You passed by an Apple store and you will see Americans lining a queue just so they can be counted. And this is not hyperbole ... I was
just surprised Americans literally are camping out within the periphery of the Apple store just like what they do when they watch concerts
of their favorite stars. Everybody was using iPhone and if you will not go with the tide, you will be washed alone on the shore, making you
feel you don't belong.

After 8 months another blitzkrieg campaign comes inviting the whole populace to move up to the next ladder step for a new iPhone - much
better, much faster, and more improved. They got us, hostage, by brainwashing us in our emails that you need to upgrade your 7-month-old
iPhone to a new iPhone.

The strategy? Just bring your new iPhone back and you will just add a few hundred bucks for a newer iPhone and you're good to go. I got
swayed again so I decided to join the queue of fools.

It happened again in 2014 when Apple announced more new features come in this package and I was like ... again? But how can I refuse
when one of my co-workers was so punctual in changing her gadgets and she flaunted it, advertising it and answering our questions like
she was Apple's Ambassador of Goodwill.

The same routine happened in 2016, 2018 and the central focus of their claims and campaigns always center on their technological genius
plus features like over the top and over-priced AirPods which started the dawn of my awakening.

I face myself in the mirror and ask myself these questions: Do I really need to upgrade my iPhone? Am I doing it to please myself ... or I
was doing it to compete with others? Besides what is really so bad with my not-so-old Iphones?

I was holding my iPhone10 before me and then ask these very important questions. What is so wrong with this that I need an iPhone11 this
urgent. How much more advanced does my iPhone need to be? Do I need my iPhone for higher resolution and larger-than-life photos? But
I remember I haven't had any photos taken from it in the last five months?

Was the face and thumb log-ins and password protection that important to me? Was hacking a pressing issue or to put it mildly, do I need
a DNA sample STAT as in NOW? And did I buy that iPhone for its crystal clear ring tones? Well, the way I look at it ... everything is A-okay.
So why get obsessed and compelled to upgrade it when there is no necessity?

And when will this cycle of mind conditioning end?

I used to be a Psychiatric Clinical Instructor, and I saw the red flags, the warning signals, and the red light flickering. I should have recognized
it from the get-go. But I allowed myself to be sucked in the process. And seeing the world right now the whole world has Hallmark signs of
aberrant behavior that border more on being obsessive-compulsive.

What we see right now is a thin line separating what is important and what is idiocy. The demarcation line has been blurred to the point where
people don't understand anymore his priorities and the value of money. We are becoming a battalion of morons marching our way to the precipice
of our own destruction.

I find it appalling to see my friends buying their gadgets and compulsively show the ritual on Facebook pages and for what - for vanity, self-esteem,
egotism, or just downright arrogance.

So the question really is: Do you really need to pledge to continue all this nonsense? Are you not tired of squandering your blessings to feed your
fantasies, insecurities, and your caprices? And have you ever thought that having enough money is NOT FOREVER?

There is nothing improved, new, or better in the next editions of this iPhone series. To top it all, nothing is smart when you are always duped or
lured into upgrading something that you feel doesn't need to be.

I love the idea being laid out in this article but ....its full of unnecessary facts. Maybe it will have been better written in 3 or 5 concise sentences. Thanks for the thought provoking story.

Thank you Daxrolf. And here's the concise version.

Who needs to upgrade his iPhone annually? Do you think it is necessary? Am I doing it to please myself or I was doing it to show off
and compete with others? Being duped once or twice is enough. But doing it annually is just plain idiocy. It is almost akin to herd mentality.
or mob mentality. Think of a sheep blindly following the flock no matter where they go. It is time for people to understand his priorities and
appreciate the value of his money.

Fancy gadgets lose their sheen through time. It's for certain that the new products of today will become old tomorrow. Obsolescence .. and the glib-tongued advertisers will bilk the gullible of their hard-earned cash for that is what they're actually paid for: to purvey and sell. Harsh but true, absolutely!

As people aged, they tend to become wiser and can discern want as opposed to their own needs. Material things make life convenient for the Juans who can afford no doubt but the hard questions stays - - are the recent material comforts really essential in daily existence?

Here's what I've observed amongst our seniors over the years: our elders no longer crave the new comforts of the present. They'd cling to the things of old and their values as if the newer contraptions are a trap with no meaning at all and will discard these non-essentials as they live through their sunset years.

When you're happy with the cellphone that's in your hands, in my opinion you don't have to upgrade. But if your sad, depress, angry or upset then it's time to work or sort out something in your life that will make it better.

As long as my TV, cameras, Church (THE CATHOLIC RADIO NETWORK), calendar, banks, mirror, calculator, typewriter, maps, library are up and running functionally with my cellphone then I don't have to change or buy a new one. Although, I have spent so much money and have lost some of it from upgrades previously but I'm a HAPPY LOSER.

Good observation. But technology isn't just something seniors should accept Embracing technology can help seniors improve
their physical and mental well-being. Social media can help them prevent loneliness, and using the internet can help them speed
up paying their bills or shop without leaving the house. And it can speed up connectivity seniors want from children that were out
of town.

But why do seniors struggle with technology? For obvious reasons.
1. Technology gap - Life now is digital. The gap is huge and seniors can't catch up.
2. Lack of perceived benefit - Seniors believed they will not get anything from doing so.
3. Fear of the unknown - Seniors are a stranger to gadgets. Their lack of knowledge terrifies them.
4. They don't feel safe online. They are afraid of scams, hacking, of phishing hence hesitate when passwords are required.
5. Seniors hate learning by doing. But that's how we learn computers - seniors have to play them around.
6. Memory lapses. Seniors are usually frustrated when they forget their usernames and passwords.
7. Vision loss resulting from aging - glaucoma, cataract macular degeneration to name a few.
8. Lack of time. Learning is a slow process, and seniors hate using too much of their time especially on gadgets they don't enjoy.
9. The price tag. Gadgets are not always cheap. And seniors would rather have their money spent on food and medicine

I think the only reason why we need to upgrade our iPhones are the security patches that will not be available The iPhone
is extremely vulnerable to attack if there are no regular updated security patches.

But if your phone is just A-okay stay away from the Apple Store.

This is just a fun fact. If you combine all the sales of different kinds of cellphones manufactured by dozens of companies throughout the history of mankind, still The sales of Nokia phones hasn't been surpassed after it was introduced almost 3 decades ago. That record of sales in the market still stand today.

Technologies being utilized by leaps in the world today are the least priorities that the seniors would attend to. This is the stage where Healthcare, shelter, medicines and food should always be accessible to them so they could live in greater heights with their advancing age.

iPhones seemed to age much more quickly. That's what the carriers want us to believe. The fact of the matter is we can easily go
three or four years with a device. There’s really no need to upgrade. Carriers know this, so they’ve changed their pricing plans
around to encourage you to regularly come back for new devices.

When you buy a new smartphone now, you’ll more than likely sign up for a “device installment plan” and pay off the bulk of the
device’s cost over 12, 18, 24, or 30 months. Make no mistake, you don’t own this phone, the carrier does, and it’s expecting you
to turn it in after that time is up.

I only buy newer phone when my storage capacity would be consumed already. In the past, the memory capacity of my phone was just 200 BG but now it stands at 500 GB so it will take at least 5 years before I would ever purchase another one. My only concern is the recharging of the battery to remain working throughout the day of use. It's draining fast for only 4 hours of usage. But I'm looking at getting a nuclear powered cellphone that could last at least 10 years or more continuously without having to charge for that long. But someone still needs to manufacture immediately. We really need one in the world today considering with all those apps running all together in our fingertips for convenience. It's actually possible because when the pacemakers were made to power the heart to keep its beat when it's failing to make a pulse, it's battery is nuclear made that could last up to 10 years without being replaced. Likewise, The Russian submarines are also powered by nuclear that could keep the whole submarine up and running for 25 years. Nuclear should be used to provide a good source of power to all technological inventions but not to be utilized for weapons of mass destructions.

The biggest memories now a days is 1TB for apple and Samsung. My problem with apple is that they keep on improving only the camera and also the speed. However, what use are those improvements if you don't use that camera much? If you are not a professional photographer that doesn't equate to the price they are asking. Speed...ok everyone wants fast but you can only go as fast as your provider will allow and that cost extra money too. My advise, don't buy apple every time esp when they only have color change on covers, and upgrade on camera. Usually this are the XS, S models. Buy when its in the number series but only if you see actual upgrade on phone hardware. Like longer use without charging, faster switching to different apps, more memories, presence of usb plug, the ability to store gifs etc. As of now I am keeping my apple11 because it meets my needs. Just see how 12 and 13 didn't catch on because there is almost nothing new other than a slight tweak on actual phone improvements. Its always about how to improve the camera. Steve Job offered exciting changes and something new every time before his death. The present apple iphone, ipad and even watch new offerings rarely does that.

PS. I think apple should improve itunes. its not user friendly at all
