When I upgraded my first generation iPhone to a 3G last year, it was a no-brainer; I wanted the extended battery life and GPS capabilities. But I was also totally delighted that I got to make another very important decision: black or white?!
As style-conscious as I am, I generally end up making practical decisions when it comes to tech, because in the end, I always want the best quality. That said, I'm pleased the most with my gadgets when they end up being stylish as well as functional, like with the smooth, graceful base of my flat screen TV, the way my Apple TV, Wii and PS3 consoles don't have to hide inside my TV cabinet, or how nice and sleek my MacBook Pro looks sitting on my smooth wood coffee table.
But I wouldn't have picked any of these based on style alone. Like I said, they have to offer me the best performance, but among the best performers, if I can narrow them down by style, I certainly will.
How about you? Ever picked a cell phone because it came in a color you liked, or a TV because of how it would look with your decor?
