You know the feeling.
Your latest gadget gets delivered (from Solid Signal, of course) and you read on the tech blogs that its replacement has already been announced. It's actually not very common with the stuff you'll get from us, but if you want the latest and greatest phone, you know by now you have a 6-8 week window, especially if it's an Android phone.
It's not a new problem, though. Our friends at Paleofuture
dug up this comic from a 1919 issue of Electrical Experimenter
. Back then, ham radio was the big tech boom, and the comic talks about the coming of shared antennas, the concept that eventually became cable television.
Remember, it's fun to stand in the spotlight with the latest and greatest tech, but of course, nothing stays in the spotlight forever... not now and not in 1919.
