The period (usually two or three weeks) following the purchase of a new electronic gadget, when you are so much in love with your new gizmo
that everything about it seems perfect. It doesnt matter how good or bad it actually is, the honeymoon period will always exist (believe it or not, even Vista
users had a honeymoon period with their new OS). After the end of the honeymoon period, logic takes over emotion, and you can finally judge your new gadget more objectively, and thus decide whether the purchase was a success or failure. The duration of the honeymoon period is proposal to how good the gadget actually is.
Vista user: “This new Aero environment looks pretty slick, and look at those cool bundled multimedia tools!“
Same vista user, three weeks later: “Vista sucks! What‘s the point of having all those visual effects if the system is dog slow, and the bundled multimedia tools dont support any format that matters, like mp4 or divx avi“ (honeymoon period ended)
