Many years ago, one of the Japanese cell phone manufacturers, complained
that people were hanging on to their cellphones for too long.
And were not 'upgrading' to new models as the users were expected to do
when the new models were being introduced.
The life cycle of the product in the customer's hands was longer than
the product development/manufacture/marketing cycle.
The 'saturation' of the industry was an issue then. And it looks like it
remains an issue now.
