Cheap, fast, simple tools are suddenly everywhere. We get our breaking news from blogs, we make spotty long-distance calls on Skype, we watch video on small computer screens rather than TVs, and more and more of us are carrying around dinky, low-power netbook computers that are just good enough to meet our surfing and emailing needs. The low end has never been riding higher.
Other examples of this good enough trend, according to the post? The Flip digital camcorder and cloud computing. So, when it comes to gadgets, when is cheap and simple good enough for you? And when are you willing to pay a premium for all the bells and whistles? Let's hear your takes in the comments.
