New GADGETS are the key.

Perhaps it's telling us, that we really wanted something better, and that the e-reader still don't meet our expectations, but is the closest thing to what we want at the time.
I spend $ 500 for eReaders, covers and chargers each year and only about $ 200 for eBooks. Its the gadget properties which really interest me and all the new screens and functions. The eBooks just fill my time with interesting reading.

Its the same with PC's. I spend $ 2,000 every 3 years for a new PC and only about $ 200 each year for software. I like the new learning curves the best.

Thus, battery lives are irrelevant unless next year's battery models have the new 3D batteries which are 1/10th the size of the present 2D ones and last 5 times as long.
