It's not that you have to replace them, if the stuff works great. It's that at around 5 years old you have to assume they won't.
I like toys, I like my MD's that talks to my phone
, that talks to my watch... But I don't think it's at all necessary. But like most toys I don't need to justify it, it makes me smile and that's good enough.
But I dint buy the new MFD because of it, I bought it because the 5 year old one kept telling me I was on the Malta
coast despite clearly being in the Louisiana swamp.
