This is the way it's always been since my parents brought home the shiny new ODYSSEY 2000 game system for us for Christmas so many years ago. (1974-75?) THIS IS GREAT we thought until we actually tried it and figured out it was just PONG with crappy plastic sheets you put on the TV screen and held in place with static cling.
Next year was an incremental imrovement with another product that promised to be light years ahead but again a disappointment.
I came across a cover to a Playstation (one) game title I owned, "Formula One" by Psygnosis. 1996. One of the better PS1 racing titles, funny tho the cover boasted "real cinematic film quality graphics" or something like that. Joke! Pixels about 1/4" square they meant. the next year's title probably the same lie.
Is the Triumph with 2.2 really that bad? Mine isn't. It's been trouble free since day 1 except for the battery door and wonky touch screen. (sometimes I try to touch the same object TEN times and can only select the one above or below it! As if it hates me and wants to frustrate me!)
You only want 2.3 or 2.4 or whatever because of the promise it's going to be that much better.
And almost certainly is not, once you own it, going to be "all that".
I'm going to be 50 years old next month and in many ways I'm still a punk but have inevitably gained some of that age borne wisdom which says this one is fine for its purpose and I don't need the next big thing every year. Maybe every 3 years and I will research it well so I won't get burned.
The bigger message is if you want to keep up with the Jones' in technology you better have money to throw away because you'll be doing a lot of that.
