    Wow, that's incredible, and... If only more people understood.

    Maybe instead if a new one every year do what.... No never mind that won't work, ever...

    "I'm not selling you progress, I'm selling you the feeling of owning something new and cool..."

    Yep, that's about right. . Interesting ad pc747, thanks for sharing. Makes you think.

    I must admit that the reason I decked the note 5 2 years ago was for that very reason of the software feeling sluggish after a few months. My Nexus 6 is just starting to slow down and have a slight hiccup every now and then.

    But Apple is not without their faults as well as I've seen people with iPhone 6 saying they are needing new phones because their phones have been freezing up lately, right on cue for the iPhone 8.

    I guess we should be grateful they are lasting two years and not only 12-14 months.

    I didn't know there was a whole You Tube channel with these types of videos. Some are pretty darn funny...and make you think about the junk we buy, and how ads are trying to brain wash us all.

    I haven't watched that one yet. The junk food video had me laughing out loud at my desk.

    That sums up the Insurance industry pretty well.
