Just yesterday, a friend said, “I just got this new phone, a Droid X2.  Don’t you have the original Droid?”  I wryly replied, “Yes, would the Droid Classic be a good name for it?  I can’t believe this phone is only one year old!”  Well, I had already been thinking about how successful the mobile phone industry has been over the last few years at speeding up the product cycle, perhaps a little too successful.  The problem now is that one cannot keep up and I reckon the industry has lost me.
