Buying a new shiny new electronic device doesn't necessarily just mean shelling out for the device itself. It also might mean buying -- or perhaps even re-buying -- new accessories, software or added services. For example, customers who bought the first iPhone and upgraded to the iPhone 3G lost out in several ways. In addition to the cost of the iPhones, their cases usually didn't fit the more rounded iPhone 3G. Soft silicon skins sort of fit, while most hard cases would not and some old cases caused screwy behavior with the changes to the ambient light sensor on the new iPhone 3G.

Cloud Music

It's true. You never actually only pay the "cost" of technology. But the same goes for any investment. Think about it this a house or maintenance fees.

Anyway, I just wanted to throw out there that LaLa ( offers cloud backed up music. Not only is it backed up, but it becomes accessible from any computer anywhere. It matches all your music with its server or uploads your song if there's no match. Plus, buying songs on lala is cheaper than buying on iTunes. Just throwing it out there...
