Technology steadily progresses and once something comes out, it is usually outdated in 6 months.  So everything technological is updated witha new model at least every year.  The new iPods have come out.  If your old iPod works just fine, why should you upgrade?  What is the advantage the company has by putting out new models every year?  Does the marketing (Ads in newspaper, magazine, radio, TV, internet) have anything to do with you changing your mind on buying a new one?  Why or why not?  (Must be at least  5 COMPLETE sentences or you will get ZERO CREDIT)

    YES I THINK IT DOES. BECAUSE I HAVE AN OLD IPOD THAT IS OLD AND WORKS FINE BUT WHEN I SAW A NEW ONE ON TV I HAD TO HAVE. I BEGGED FOR IT AND GOT IT. SO I THINK IT WORKS BECAUSE I WANTED IT BECAUSE OF THAT. THAT IS WHAT I THINK.

    if it works fine than why should you upgrade to the new version? you don’t have too but you can. the newer ones might have special features on it that the old one doesn’t. some people want to upgrade it just because it’s new. just to have it.

    If my Ipod works fine then I don’t need to update it. But some people are crazy about the new technology so they have to buy anything new that comes out. I don’t care hox much its advertised, I know I have an Ipod that is just as fine. I do think its nice to have new things. But I feel like, what’s wrong with what you already have?

    I THINK IF YOU HAVE ONE IPOD IT DOES NOT MATTER TO UPGRADE AS LONG AS YOU HAVE THE MUSIC. BUT THIS IS AN ADVANTAGE TO THE COMPANY. BECAUSE EVERY TIME THEY CHANGE IT EVERYONE WANTS TO HAVE IT. I THINK THE RE4ASON FOR THIS IS B/C EVERONE WANTS THE NEW STUFF LIKE T.V, TOUCH SCREEN, VIDEOS, AND MANY MORE. BUT I THOUGHT IS WAS ALL ABOUT THE MUSIC?

    actually, i think if you have an ipod already it doesn’t matter to upgrade it. i mean for these companies its all about money. if you have the music you want and like theirs no point to upgrade it. besides, next year they’ll make another one. eventually there gonna run out of ideas.

    well kinda and not really becouse an ad has to be very convincing to make me upgrade to something new when my old one is just fine. why waste more money when you dont need to. its different when the economy is up but right now the economy is way to bad. people dont want to buy anything when they dont have the money, so why make something new every year why not every 2 or 3 years when people actually have money to buy anything.!?

    I mean I’m a tech-fanatic so id update. With the new apps, why wouldn’t you wanna update. It makes your ipod more fun. Is that what its made for? But if all you want is music then you shouldn’t update.

    I wouldn’t upgrade but I don’t have an ipod period so I don’t care. Maybe someone would want to upgrade. For me to upgrade it would depend on the new features. If it only has video chat I would just get a phone that does that. Ipod updates all the time so people might not care.

    Yes because it has to be a reasonable price. It matters if the object is good. But it also matters if the object has a reasonble price. But it is a really cool type of ipod.

    i say that having a new model will progress and the reason why is so that you can have every model like everyone else so people think your cool because you have it or you had it first

    I say if it isn’t broken, don’t fix it. There is no reason to make a new model if your still making money on the previous model. It makes no sense pouring money into a new product if it might not even sell. Plus, advertising is expensive. It makes no sense.

    the way that these companies show off there techolgy it seems so cool. some people think that the electronics that they have is not cool. when something else comes out they run toh the store just toh get it. by 2012 people are bout toh run out of ideas.

    The reason they come out with newer models is so they can make more money.
    The reason people buy a newer one is because they probably have more memory and work better. This way they can make more money.

    I think commercials, ads, and the internet make you buy the new technology. I think this because the commercials use different appeals to make you want to buy it more. Also commercials and stuff always make you feel like everybody is going to get one and that makes you feel left out therefore you buy one.
