Ok, so I have a love/hate relationship with technology. I love checking out the latest and greatest gadgets. I want wall-to-wall flat panel TV screens, all HDTV/DVD/PS3/Wii enabled, with multi-function remotes, etc. I want GPS, GSM, GPRS, WiFi, 16 Mp, 4 GB and all that that entails.

On the other hand, none of this will work for more than 6 months. The MTBF ("Mean time between failure") of these gadgets is somewhat less than the time to get them home. Everything's made of the flimsiest possible materials, the poorest quality construction, and the lamest design as far as usable buttons, readable menus, etc.

And if it does last 6 months, it will be obsolete anyway.

So, this will be a place where I rant about technology in general, and about digital media in particular. I may occasionally sprinkle in some helpful information. Please excuse these lapses in judgment.

Everything in here is copyrighted as hell! You can look, but don't touch.
