Imagine you are a serious techie, and always have the newest smartphone on the market. You just upgraded to an awesome new phone, but your three roommates still have outdated models that lack the new capabilities of your new device. You are set on selling your friends on the benefits of the new phone so that they upgrade as well. One friend seems very receptive to the idea, the second friend is on the fence about whether to switch, and your third friend is initially quite opposed to the idea.
