Agree except I check back for a few months not years. Taking risks on new things is fine though. Otherwise we wouldn’t have iPhone with new parts etc but things do need vetting

The iPhone is a great example of not looking at anything hyped for two years. It took two years to become suitable for anyone except Apple fanboys. Version 1 had basically no internet - it couldn't do 3G - you couldn't copy n paste, you couldn't even add third party software. Version 2 was pitifully slow. Version 3, the 3GS, was the first really usable product. It came out ten days short of the second anniversary.
