My ultimate device acid test
Posted on 13-Jan-2016 15:10 by Bill Bennett | Tags Filed under: News


There’s an objective side to reviewing technology product and services. There’s also an emotional side. I’m often interested in exploring how I feel about integrating technology into my work and life. It’s not something I write about often because it is so personal. One size does not fit all.

However, I’m aware that my emotional response to technology can be as important and significant as my intellectual response.

There’s one way for sure I know how I really feel about a product or service: that’s my response as I pack the product for return at the end of a review period or what happens when I delete the software from devices.

I call this my ultimate device acid test.

If I’m busy calculating whether I can justify buying something, it’s a pass. If I feel a sense of loss as the courier speeds off down my road, it was a pass. If I’m glad to see the back of something, it’s a fail. If I’m indifferent, it’s, well let’s say a no score draw.
