F the pre-tech days. I want MORE tech!
It's bad enough I have to get a new phone every year and a half, I don't want to have to buy a new computer every three.

But I have to admit, my new computer is awesomer, and cheaper!, than the last one from five years ago.

That reminds me, could someone give me six hundred dollars please?

Who says you have to? I've got a phone that came out in 2011 and it does everything I need it to.

Again, who says you have to. The computer I'm typing on is over 3 years old and it replaced one that was probably 5 years old at the time.

If replacing all my sheit every time a new upgrade comes out, just for the sake of having all new stuff, is what it takes to be geek of the year, definitely give the trophy to someone else. Cars. Electronics. Whatever. I like to ride it till it ain't getting the job done no more.

The iphone is over a year old and starting to crap out already. I had my last computer for over five years and it finally died. Went to get ink for the printer a few months ago, and dude at Best Buy said "Oh, we don't carry ink for that kind of printer anymore."

So now I have an unopened cartridge of ink for a printer I'm no longer using! The latest technological gizmo is only designed to last a few year years. Then you need to upgrade and replace. Nice scam!

Ah, the "lame" stream media, or "liberal" media. Can't trust anything THOSE guys say. In fact, I'll bet helicopter dude isn't even dead! He was clipped in the ear and just needed an aspirin. Leave it to the MSM to blow it out of proportion!

q iphone crapping out? Say it ain't so. Sublime will call you a liar. I roll with Android and my Galaxy S *2* is working great.

Computer lasted 5 years? I thought you said 3. Make up your mind.

Best Buy does not carry ink for you printer? You can't shop at any where but best buy? Office Max? Staples? Office depot? Hell, you could buy your ink on the web.

Thought I'd have to buy a new computer b/c it was trashed with a virus and was old. I had bought a really good one 5 years ago. Quad core, AMD. Anyways, the computer guy fixed it for $150. Yay! That was last year. It's still going strong and of all the computers I have bought it's really been a work horse, a good one.

When getting a computer, buy the best one at the time that you can afford and it'll last. Amirite?

BTW, I am with you. I love technology. I'm just too cheap to get the latest and greatest. I wait until I need it.

I don't know about liberal. More liberals probsbly have tats. Maybe not.

Anyways, you stop people from getting a tat on the fly, you're going to put the tat removal service out of business. Who doesn't know tattoos are permanent? I agree, the law is stupid. Maybe it should be in place for people under 18, but there's enough laws in place for that. I believe. Isn't there?

I was up early today. Gotta get things done so I can be a sludge and sit down for 3 hours and watch the Bears.

US Open Tennis took some hours out of my life yesterday.

Damn sports!
