  1. People like to be early adopters because there’s really good stuff to use in here; the minor annoyances that some people have aren’t worth not-buying. It’s nothing to do with being first, or immature. The services integration, the effortless multitasking, the seamless integration with a webOS phone so you don’t need to switch devices, the homebrew culture, the ease of development [,Flash], etc – that’s the kind of stuff that the ‘early adopters’ want, and will laud for years to come (see also Prē users who believe their multitasking and notifications UIs to be superior to any other platform to this day). Those things matter to some people; they don’t need to justify their purchases because they know they have something they needed.
