I’ve finally stopped procrastinating and ordered the iPaq 2210. Finally! I think I’ve given it ample thought over the last few weeks (or is it months?)!
I’ve noticed that my gadget buying always displays a similar pattern. It is a very drawn-out and considered process, and comprises four distinct stages.
1) It has all the functionality that I want and need, without compromises or workarounds or bodges
2) the price is right i.e. a lot less than retail
3) the reviews of it all say that it’s the best of its type, and
4) I have saved the requisite amount of money for the purchase
It is, therefore, the right time to buy. It should be here at this time tomorrow! Ooh, I’m getting that familiar “new gadget excitement” feeling. I have done well here.
