More signs of accelerating change

[via Slashdot] Companies are moving from the 1-year product cycle to the 6-month:
"What is perhaps more interesting than the 4 new Konica Minolta cameras announced today is the rapid product cycle that seems to have been established by both Konica Minolta and other manufacturers." Rather than the yearly model updates that people have come to expect, the article notes that three members of this batch aren't even a year old, and one is only six months.
The question is, can they test this stuff that fast? Unlikely.
