    Samsung just announced better magic crystals for smartphones and other mobile devices.

    Toshiba has announced their own, similar, magic crystals.

    Samsung and Toshiba are both now hoping that you will run out and buy new google-boxes with their new magic crystals, even though your current magic crystals work just fine.

    These new magic crystals will contribute to the advancement of civilization by making it possible for you to put more animated cat's ears on countless selfies.

    even though your current magic crystals work just fine.

    Oh, don't worry. Your* non-replaceable battery will ever weaken as it reaches towards its max number of charge cycles, and your* non-replaceable flash memory will begin dropping data as it reaches towards its maximum number of write cycles, and the increasingly bloated and ever-higher-level abstracted (and ever-less-functional, and ever-poorer user-interface-laden) apps you* buy will eat both of those resources ever faster as the resources themselves shrink day by day...

    ...and you* will want those new magic crystals, or you* won't be able to post your latest angst-fest on fleecebook and twaddle.

    New magic crystals for everyone!* Yay!

    * Not necessarily you you, but the generic "you" that makes up the vast majority of the marketplace.

    > These new magic crystals will contribute to the advancement of civilization by paying for geeks' salaries so they can tinker around with useful stuff in their spare time

    I'm -unusually- grasping for a sliver lining in an ocean of cynicism.
