Stepping It Up With Upgrades

Upgrading seems to a common theme in today’s business world. Take smartphones, for example. Many people find it to be a tough decision figuring out which brand and design to go with, considering that there always seems to be newer versions soon to come out. Technology is constantly improving, so why shouldn’t your devices? Right?

But are these devices improving? Or are they simply changing to give the public more options and more reasons to spend their money? Recently, SquareTrade Warranties conducted an experiment on Apple’s iPad and iPad 2 to test the sturdiness and durability of each device. The “drop tests” were documented in a YouTube video.

As The Toronto Star reported, both devices experienced significant damage, especially when dropped face down at shoulder height. Interestingly, the iPad 2 seemed to suffer the worse fate, virtually falling apart. According to SquareTrade, the new iPad was supposed to have an upgraded tougher screen.

The video, however, shows that the two iPad devices have the same type of screen protection. So where is the upgrade? Although we, at MeloTel, haven’t conducted any drop tests ourselves, it appears that the SquareTrade experiment has unveiled no real upgrade in the exterior of the new iPad at all.

With this revelation comes a reminder that it is important to always work towards making genuine improvements in your business to satisfy your customers. How can you do that?
