I've come to the realisation that through inaction (or budget constraints more likely) I have fallen woefully behind with technology. I have an ancient second-hand computer at home. I'm still on dial-up. I don't have an MP3 player of any sort. My VCR and DVD player both threw in the towel recently.
You might as well hand me parchment and a quill to write this blog with, right?
So, I have a plan. It'll be expensive but over the next 6 months I plan to invest in:
- The black top end MacBook laptop
- Broadband, preferably some sort of wireless set-up
- One of the new generation iPods (apparently the line is being revamped at the moment)
- A DVDR with hard drive
Nice, right? I mean, my balls tingle just at the thought of all those new gadgets. Oh and yes, it also means I'm switching to a Mac from Windows. When I was dating Morgan I used his MacBook when I was over at his house, and came around to the style and function of Macs.
Anyhoo. Aside from buying a new sofa and a few other things for the house, I think the tail end of 2007 and the start of 2008 will Gadget Time. How excitement!
[Updated: I realised that I almost sounded like I was accusing Apple of illegal price fixing, which I'm sure is not the case, so I've amended this entry.]
