A Modern Day Dilemma

I can be a bit of die hard.  I can hang on to technology far longer than some.  I haven’t gotten a Blu-ray player or flat screen TV yet.  On the other hand I have an eBook reader, and I was the first to get a DVD player.

The question is whether it is time to go completely digital where my music is concerned.  I already have an MP3 player and have most of my library on my laptop.  I could put every single CD I have onto my computer and then either store or get rid of my CDs.  This would have been unthinkable years ago, but now…

When cassettes became passé they ended up in the trash (or recycling box…which then probably got put in the trash) or got sent to people who still had cassette players in their cars.  I didn’t get rid of my LPs and now they seem to have come back in fashion.  I may have to go and dig them out of their storage/hiding spot.

This is such a first world problem.

  1. I can totally relate to this post (as i type on my ipad) never got a blue ray, and still using a giant box TV. Although i watch most stuff on my ipad.
    To me its always been about practicality, and if it works, why replace it.

  2. I have much the same feeling…. but occasionally I get tech envy or tech lust. I also have dreams of downsizing…. but then what do I do with the things that still work. I can't throw them out, and nobody wants them…. still a dilemma.
