This blog is a collection of my opinions and ideals. It's a place where I can vent my mind and release stress.

We are in the year nearly 2012. It's time to upgrade old, DEAD technology. Get off the SDTV, the Mono/Stereo, and the analog.
It's time to get HDTV's', surround sound systems, up to date computer hardware, and component/hdmi cables. Technology is an ever moving forward thing, you can't hold onto dead outdated crap. Especially crap that's no longer supported. Hell, stereo is slowly becoming obsolete in favor of 5.1 and 7.1 Surround Sound.
There are certain technologies that are now outdated, heard of dial-up lately, nope neither have I. Because it's DEAD. That doesn't mean people still aren't using it however, those people are in a world of hurt when it's support time. Trust me holding on to dead technologies is more trouble then it's worth.
It is of very, very, high assumption that the next consoles will not even have ports for SDTV or analog. Only HD and stereo.
I'm currently in the process of saving up for a modern computer with modern hardware. The current laptop I possess is over 7 year's old and the hardware in it, is even older pre 2000 some of it is. I find it increasingly difficult to do the things I want to do. I do not blame the programmers or developers, I blame myself for being a stubborn ass and refusing to upgrade for all these years. Trust me, it's not worth it and I found that out the hard way.
My mother, refuses to use a computer. She says she doesn't need one. Yet, she complains when certain things are online only or simply can't be done by hand. I have no sympathy for her because I've tried to tell her over and over to start using a computer, but she refuses.
"I don't need those newfangled devices." Pfft, w/e mom, w/e.
It's going to be pretty damn hard for her to do anything once brick and mortar goes away and digital distribution takes over.
It's time to move on. It's time to get with the program, it's time to get updated.
