Tempted by aesthetics
Wife & kid
As a young software engineer I frequently hear the sweet whisperings of new technology and find myself tempted to purchase things. The truth is that I'm finding the anticipation to be more exciting than the real world results. New stuff is fun, but that 5 frames is hardly noticeable. Oh well.
I value minimalist, clean, and the color white. These values sometimes crowd out better quality and performance, but I get by.
