One part is - do you need it
the other is - do you want it
Very few of us "need" what we buy. But many "like" what we buy. And like you
said - companies like to capitalize on this. It's the same story why people
like to buy completely overpriced smartphones at almost a thousand bucks a
piece every year, where you could get 99% of the value for 150$. Or with many,
many other things in our lifes…
But I do agree. Companies should try and get some more value at a lower price
range into the market - and not by artificially worsening a product (Take SLX
brakes as an example: Their free stroke adjustment is just replaced by a bolt
without a standard interface, whereas the XT has a Phillips head bolt in there
- no cost savings, but a worse product).
