Default Re: What vintage has done to me

The problem is people are tying to use new technology while maintaining the older things they are used to. That is when things become expensive.[/QUOTE]

Perhaps I haven't look at it that way as well. Everything I do is older - I don't really do anything new, yet have these devices and figuring out I don't need them for what I do. If I completely jettisoned the old ways of living, maybe new technology would be the right thing to do. But almost all of us have experienced power-outages, and watching the news, you see alot of these catastrophic events where people get cut off from civilization. that's probably what I'm getting at - the world isn't Star Trek stable yet, so wireless devices are just not where its at for me. I know people who don't have landlines, and they experience problems where they lose signal and actually have to leave their homes to make a phone call. Of course, it doesn't happen all the time, but what an inconvenience, I say.
