Littlethunder, it sounds like the Radio Shack store employee was envious of the fact you stayed with a proven product that works for you. I have the original Droid and it has been a very good phone for me. I am just now looking at replacing it as my two years are up.
I have a Compaq Presario 3000 laptop, with a Pentium IV chip. It is still a functional laptop that I use at work for presentations, Excel spreadsheets, and Word documents. How does it make economic sense to replace those items that continue to work and do their respective tasks well??
