More or less all of we are affected by Latest mania but Latest is not always the best option! In context of technology this is very much true!

Early adopting or pathfinding is always treading a challenging path, particularly when others learn from the mistakes we've made. We rarely remember the first and possibly not even the second or third; we only remember the ones who came after and became successful as a result.

If it is not the Best, it Can't be "latest". Otherwise it will be thrown in the waste basket as a misadventure of someone.
Well compared (quality, price, specifications to our needs), well informed, well selected= best choice.
Perhaps durability and reliability where @ Mijan statement is applicable.
In many products (electric appliances, fridge, Tvs and cars used to serve longer and more reliable.
Thanks everybody for contributing! Personally I believe that there must be some 'innovative outlaw' who would explore the latest to make it proven/tested for the rest.
Make sure business value drives technology choice. Don't just invest in the latest thing and hope for the best. Having said that, the potential of mobile and digital technology is much greater than many realise.
just look at windoze* was terriblemicroslop quickly went to win ten to try to fix it same as in the past vista and others they were the latest but always worse than what it replaced
@adams In fact you mentioned the strongest example of 'latest is not always the best"! Thanks for commenting.
