You might think that a retailer would always welcome the latest gadget and widely publicize it but in fact, that’s not always the case.
Sound unbelievable? Well, some retailers might:
- have substantial stock in a central warehouse which they’re trying to run off before publicizing new-to-market items;
- perhaps operate under a restrictive distribution agreement with a single supplier for a given type of technology, something that may preclude them from bringing to your attention new stuff from other manufacturers;
- have a marketing strategy that is based heavily upon protecting future income stream from regular updates and upgrades of existing products they’ve sold (it can be surprisingly expensive for a retailer to take on an entirely new product line with the training that’s involved and so on).
So, not all retailers operate on the basis that if it’s out there, they must offer it. That’s one of the reasons why you may be wondering just what’s happened to the really new exciting stuff.
If you want to see the latest gadgets directly out of the labs, you need to look for providers and outlets offering the best and coolest gadgets on a regular basis. They do exist.
If your idea of an exciting new gadget is release 18.104.22.168 of your existing phone’s operating system where you’re currently on release 22.214.171.124, then it’s time to get out of the rut!
What is a new gadget?
Most of us love gadgets. These were once called “boy’s toys” but that was sexist nonsense. Today, gadgets are popular with almost everyone irrespective of gender.
However, they’ve become so popular that some manufacturers and retailers have become a little complacent. For example, these are the outlets that run major headline announcements of the type saying, er, um, that they’ve now got “red cased ones” in stock instead of the usual blue cases.
OK, that’s a made-up example but you get the drift. If you find you’re yawning at new announcements more often that gasping in amazement, then something’s wrong.
What’s going on?
