Geeking on a budget

Like many people I am waiting for the annoucement that is coming from Geek Mecca.  Will Apple release an iPhone 4s or the iPhone 5?  The web is going crazy with rumors of what is to come, people looking for the slightest change in a website or a picture.  I have found some great articles though on maybe not upgrading your phone.  If your like me and a geek on a budget, take a look at these few articles:

I love Apple, but I also know that I have other bills, and responsibilities.  I would love to be standing in line on launch day, but I just guess we will have to see.
