The new computer is loaded up and I am back in the saddle. All in all, it was a fairly painless process.
At the risk of being accused of being a Luddite, sometimes I wonder if my constant access to technology is such a good thing. The other day I was driving somewhere while talking on my cell phone and I thought, “You know, 10 years ago, I would just be enjoying some quiet time alone in the car right now.”
Today I read about the VisionMirror. It is a mirror iwth a TV built in. When it is turned off, it functions like a normal mirror (imagine that!). When turned on, this water-proof factory-made TV mirror will not only show you broadband, sattelite and/or cale television, but it will also accept a computer signal as well (which means you can read your e-mail while going big-boy-pottie).
Tell me, is there a need for more TV viewing and computer-using opportunities in the bathroom? I have been getting along fine for years with just book, magazines, and the occasional sports page. I guess it could be good when you have to “go” somewhere in the middle of your favorite show. Of course, you could just get a Tivo.
