Right now is an awkward time to buy some kinds of electronics. The wise will wait on these types of things.
TVs, Home theater etc. Wait until when? Mid Year 2012 The 2012 TV lineups should all be reviewed by mid year. Wait until May if you can to see what Samsung’s Plasmas are like. For now, the Panasonic ST50 is better than last year’s bests, at the price of last year’s middle ground. The same kind of goes for blu-ray players and receivers, which haven’t been reviewed yet in 2012.
The iPhone: The new one only a few months away! If you think about it, the current model is only a variant on a design that is nearly 2 years old at this point. What’s another 5-6 months?
