Welcome to the club, David!
My addiction/obsession is so bad that I’m constantly checking here (and elsewhere😉) for new releases even though I’m aware how rare these are (unlike smartphones; which are updated every year), but when there is a release, I go off the rails and the obsession takes into over-drive; even when I know I’m not particularly getting that or this new release, but that doesn’t stop me from salivating & fantasizing over it.
No disrespect to this -and elsewhere- place, but I tell you, before I started visiting these places I was “normal,” and could not care less about new this/that, longer pivots, more samples etc..; heck, if asked whether my action was folded or not, I’d have no idea what you were talking about; incidentally, I ran my pianos to the ground, and only when absolutely necessary did I even think about getting another one, and so aloof I was, that the brand-spanking-new model could be sitting next to the “old” generation and I would not even be aware, and in the end, a la Mac, I’d buy whatever I enjoyed playing regardless……ignorance is bliss, they say.
I must admit something: sometimes I do love my addiction, and as CG says, it can be lots of fun; especially coming ‘round here to tease y’all, and destroy the competition.😆
BTW, when it comes to everything else, still, I couldn’t care less, but if I started visiting “Techie-World” that would quickly change, so I steer clear from potential addictions in the making……..
