Alright now look...I'm trying really, REALLY hard not to be a dick about this...but why is it that every SINGLE time something new is coming out, giz feels the need to post this exact same article about it being the wrong time to buy something? They JUST wrote almost the identical article about gaming consoles, and before that laptops, and before that X, Y, and Z. For those who haven't seen it yet, this is the article I'm currently referring to: http://gizmodo.com/now-is-the-wor…
Now look, if you read this site (and that's how you would find these articles) you're already well aware that there's new stuff coming. Especially if it's apple related. How so? Allow me to provide just a couple of examples:
Mind you, those articles are all within the last week. The last of those, the "rumor roundup"? Yea, its basically this exact same article, only with more details and without the words "don't buy an iphone until the new one comes out".
Now look, we're here to read about tech stuff, totally get that. We all know that Giz has a major hard-on for Apple products, totally get that too. But is there really such desperation for more content that we need to post a round up of a round up of a round up? I mean, I'd say that anyone who reads giz should already be well aware of not only the fact that a new phone is coming (probably 2), but that buying a phone right before a new one comes out is stupid. All the details offered in the article? Yeah, we've been reading about those...over and over and over again...in the rumor, round up, and "what we know" articles that have been around for months.
Does ANYONE find these "don't buy it now" articles helpful? Am I just being a grouchy jerk? Perfectly willing to accept that I am...but is an article telling me not to buy an xbox 360 on the day the xbox one is announced REALLY something of value?
