I'm Still Alive

Hopefully I will feel like posting a bit more often these days.

While I'm here, I'd like to talk about Gadget Lust.

One priciple which I seem to be increasingly running into is this: buy the unit with the greatest abilities/capacity/whatever that you can afford. If you have it, you'll probably find a use for the increased whatever. If you don't, you will find a use for the increased whatever and be left lamenting that you don't have it.

When I last bought a PDA, upgrading from my Casio E-10 (vintage 1998), I could have gotten one with a VGA screen (640x480) instead of the usual QVGA (320x240). At the time, I didn't see any reason to pay the premium for the increased resolution.

You can see where this is going.

Now that I have it connected to the wireless network at work, as I sit in the bathroom and read a couple of my favorite forums, I heartily wish for more screen real estate. Depending on how my review and bonus go this year, I may be upgrading...
