Baby duck syndrome

Baby ducksI love this idea. “Baby duck syndrome” is when a shiny new piece of technology, software or gadget comes out and all the early adopters jump on the bandwagon and tweet, blog and generally share that it’s the best thing since sliced bread.   Those suffering from baby duck syndrome immediately “imprint” on the new technology, and have issues with ever letting go even when it becomes apparent that it ISN’T the best thing and that there are serious drawbacks.

I used to be like this. I’m better now. honest!
