    9 Reasons Not To Rush Your Next Smartphone Upgrade

    Just because you can, doesn’t mean you should. Here’s why.

    Apple's anticipated iPhone 6 is available in stores starting today. The long queues and record amount of pre-orders (4 million) has sent workers in Apple factories into high gear to produce more and more quickly. This frenzy comes with many costs. If you are on the fence for upgrading your iPhone, or any electronic device, consider these points first:

    1. Texting < talking

    2.More phones=more waste (and environmental problems too)

    3. Smartphone workers are getting sick

    4. Technology is DESIGNED to break

    6. "Upgrade your dishwasher once a year," said no one ever.

    7. Slow your roll, there’s no need to rush.

    8. Upgrades actually cost money. Sometimes a lot.
