I’ve come to realise I’ve become something of a tech luddite. Once upon a time I was an early adopter. Not any more.
I am only just now updating my computer monitors to LCD. (Samsung 19 inch 940N, very nice, very cheap.)
I didn’t start using Visual Studio.Net properly until it had matured to VS 2005.
I didn’t touch Windows XP at all until SP2 was well-established, and basic PC specs had caught up with its demanding requirements. And I’ve only just put it on my secondary PC.
Vista? Pah, unless I see something DAMN COMPELLING, I won’t be going there until at least 2009 I reckon. When the average PC has at least double the grunt specified on the box.
I refuse to get a wireless keyboard/mouse. I can’t see the cost benefit. Besides, given how messy my desks are, I’d inevitably lose them.
I’m getting my first camera phone shortly, having waited until the resolution and the price were up/down to a reasonable level. And it’s not 3G, but 2G. A tried and trusted Nokia.
And I’m not planning on upgrading my 4:3 CRT television any time soon. (As one recent review commented, they’re actually great value if you’re buying a TV.)
(I’m sure I’ll thing of more examples shortly. Like my stove/oven, made circa 1930.)
