I'm not like your typical 40-something year old suburban mom. I have no desire to spend long afternoons shoe shopping and the thought of spending money on a designer purse makes me a little sick to my stomach.
But I do have a vice when it comes to consumerism – I'm a gadget geek. For the past year, since its release, I've been covetous of the Apple iPhone. Last year, I avoided the temptation by telling myself that the 8 GB model was simply not enough memory to justify the price. Now, with these week's news of a new 16 GB model, I find myself once again obsessing about a new cell phone. It's crazy!
Do you obsess over gadgets, and if so do you find your satisfaction level to be high once you've made the purchase – or is the joy in the anticipation?
Also, if anyone out these is upgrading and wants to donate your old 8 GB iPhone to a deserving suburban mom, I know someone who might be interested….
