Device lifecycles can be deceptively complex; as with many consumer technologies, most people look at their smart phones, tablets and other devices as temporary accessories with no more long-term value than a nearly-expired carton of milk. When they renew their contracts, old devices are exchanged for new ones and never considered again.
