I’m not a research analyst so I don’t have specific references, I would speculate some have to do with the warranty - products are provided with a 100% repair or replacement warranty for 12 months. If they can eliminate human error or provide update…
You must be relatively young. Fifteen to twenty years ago it was not unusual for consumer software to be one and done. You bought it and there was no support, new features, or upgrades without additional fees.
And I have a Samsung tablet that is 8 years old. It has never had an OS update. Same for my LG cell phone. And the Amazon OS may get fixes to the OS but not an upgrade to a new version of the OS.
So I would call most of what tablo does as add-on goodies.
ok, waay off topic here. Not disagreeing, but there’s the other side. Giant company sells software and several years later no one is buying any more.
So they add bloat and call it new features, which users may not even want, understand or use. In some cased these features introduced bugs and made the program painful to use.
Another released a great suit of programs. They wanted to sell even more, so the new versions weren’t compatible the the old ones. Nothing really new, just fresh modern look. Every system had to pay for the new version to be able to function properly together. Of course none of this would work with the home or lite version.
So if something works, and does what is suppose to - one and done isn’t a bad thing. Yes, progress. We do move forward, I understand. But just because GiantCorporation tells us it’s a feature, or new and improved, well, you know how marketing works.
I suppose if you have a real problem with these, or felt the new ones, with new features would really make a difference, after 8yrs you would have replaced it.
Your analogy, new features and upgrades are goodies… You should have a new phone and tablet, 10yr life rotation?
