However, there are some of us who do not really need to be at the cutting edge of technology, which is why remaining behind is not a bad idea at all. If you are on the lookout for the HTC One (M8), you might want to get an existing model before it is replaced by the HTC One (M8s) which is touted to arrive with a slower processor.

There aren’t that many reasons why one would want to purchase a PlayStation 2 now. That console is over a decade old, granted that it was popular back in its day, but the PlayStation 3 held its own in the market and since late 2013 the PlayStation 4 has been ruling the market. Perhaps that’s why almost two years back GameStop said that it would no longer accept PlayStation 2 trade-ins, but the company seems to have changed its mind, because its allowing people to trade-in their PS2 units once again.

Last year Google announced that Android 5.0 Lollipop devices will ship encrypted. When the first Lollipop devices started shipping, which happened to be from Google’s own Nexus crop of smartphones and tablets, all of them were indeed encrypted straight out of the box.
