I was sitting at my desk thinking about the opportunity cost of these phones that cost roughly $1K, and I realised with that amount of money, I could pay my monthly electric bill for 7+ months. I could pay my water bill for 15+ months. I do not drive very much anymore, so $1K would purchase enough petrol for my old motor for about 15+ months, and it would purchase my dog's premium kibble for 15+ months as well. $1K would pay for the maintenance chap to weed and feed my lawn for 4 years. It would of course pay for a substantial mechanic's repair bill on my old motor. It is 1/3 the cost of a brand new, highly quality 2 ton HVAC system that is xpected to last about 20 years. Including cut and gratuity, it would pay for my hair to be cut 40 times. If I were interested in cinema, it would pay for a matinee seat to see 142+ films. It would pay for 4 or 5 nights stay at a good hotel in Manhattan. I do not travel anymore, but I am sure it would pay round trip airfare to new York at least 3 times if you planned ahead for a good rate. Well, you get the idea what is the opportunity cost for something that will be mostly obsolete 5-6 years after it was manufactured. It is crazy. Is it just me???
