Here's Why You Shouldn't Feel Bad If You Can't Buy Your Dream Gadget Right Now

Christmas is right around the corner and I'm sure that many of you are thinking about upgrading to any of the hottest smartphones that are being featured by the top tech bloggers and advertised in malls.

Wouldn't it be nice if we can all just buy whatever gadget we have in our dreams and fulfill our techy fantasies just in time for Yuletide?

I know that there are rich kids out there who can do just that -- but I'm also aware that most Filipinos have to consider so many things - like amenities, family needs, groceries, tuition fees, and the like - before they can open their wallets and spend their hard-earned money on an electronic device that they fancy.

If you're feeling a bit sad and depressed that you won't be welcoming the new year with the smartphone or tablet that you deem perfect for you because you don't have the funds for it as yet, here's a thought that can cheer you up:

Something better is always on the horizon.

What do I mean? Well, simply put, even the most powerful and most popular gadgets today will become old and obsolete sooner than you think.

Companies are always doing their best to outdo their previous products and these days, it practically takes less than one year for a current top-of-the-line products to be superseded by something more gorgeous, more powerful, and more feature-packed.

So chin up, smile, and just look forward to more wonderful gadgets ahead.

Think about this: Perhaps the reason why you miss a good gadget today is because something better is waiting for you in the near future -- and when it lands, you and your wallet will be in a better position to get and enjoy it.

Trust me. This has happened to me many times in the past as a gadget lover. I failed to buy so many devices that I liked -- only to finally purchase a newer one that's a lot better.


Anyway. Having shared all that, I wonder what that Chinese boy who sold his kidney so he could have enough money to buy a then-very-popular Apple iPad 2 in 2011 is thinking right now. I hope he's alright.
