Early Adopting, Not So Much

Many of my friends think of me as the early-adopter-Apple-fanboy guy. I do love Apple products, but I’m far from an early adopter when it comes to Apple products (Web services like Twitter are different, they don’t mess up hard drives or require backup up and reconfiguring things, so I sign up for new ones all the time to test drive.)
Case in point: The latest issue with iOS 6.1 affecting battery performance on 4S owners and Apple’s subsequent 6.1.1 patch.
I’ve been around and seen enough operating system releases to know it’s usually best to wait a few months before upgrading.
