    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.
