IMHO you're wrong. Battery failure is the biggest reason to "upgrade." Availability of software updates is a close second. CPU, screen res etc are already overkill even on a 4 year old phone. Many phone lives have been extended by replacing the battery, though the industry is "on" that "problem" now.

i was thinking mainly of the surprise I got in VB 3.0, where true evaluated to -1, false to 0, but a checkbox value was 0,1,or 2 (unchecked, checked, or grey box). This code would work fine for unchecked boxes, but cause an error for checked boxes.

There are a few other languages and checkbox controls that are like this, which is where the script kiddie likely learned the pattern.
