My reasons not to:
- seems like too much trouble
- it works now, why bother?
- it's too much trouble to change
- I guess I am content "enough" -- I don't have device lust, and seem to care less and less about new things coming out.
- not spending money == good.
But enough about me.

For those that think trading in your old thing for something newer is green, or trading in your land boat for a Prius or other hybrid -- it's not. It takes a huge amount of energy to create those new devices. You won't get to the break-even point until you drive 100000 miles or so.
Of course, re-use is better than re-cycle, is better than throwing away,
but how do we get closer to understanding the true cost/value of a thing ?
