    Without trying to be rude, I'm not sure what you're expecting from these things. Are you just bored and want to be entertained by change? Your ability to interact, create, and design largely lie with what you work on. If you feel like another tool is surpassing the one you use, then you should consider changing (and there are good comments here about switching cost), but if you're just feeling meh about announcements, I'd encourage you to find something to work on that does invigorate you, and lets the tool fade into the background where it belongs. If you need to be excited by the tool to use it, I promise your focus is in a place that will always, always, eventually let you down.

      No i do not think you were being rude at all... its a valid comment.

      I always try to avoid gimmicks, and I strive to find the most appropriate solution for every problem rather than following trends. If i am designing for an audience who predominately interact with touch screens, on something that isn't, I wander if that is removing myself from the problems i hope to solve? It is the opposite to being excited by the surface... I love the work set up that I have. Its more that I want to make sure I am not falling behind an industry that maybe evolving.
