It’s very odd to realize that I don’t seem to be able to just buy something and then use it, full stop. I’m compelled to accessorize pretty much any electronics purchase with add-ons. When I got a new phone a while ago, I of course had to get a case for it, a docking cradle, a car charger, and a spare battery.
Last week, I got a Google Nexus 7 (2013) 16GB. But it didn’t stop there. I had to get a case for it, and a stand, and a little gizmo that lets me connect a USB stick for extra storage. The first stand I got for it didn’t work right, wouldn’t hold the tablet at an angle and kept flopping down flat in a most annoying fashion, so I ordered a different one that works correctly.
Do you buy presents for your presents, little Hobbitses?
