Jim Versus Technology, Part 34.

As many of you already know I'm a bit of Luddite. Well, maybe a descendant of King Ludd himself. I don't really care much for new technology and new technology tends to hate me right back. Whenever I get a piece of high tech gadgetry it hears me making fun of people who wait in line for iWhatevers and commits revolutionary suicide to spite me.

It would appear that my brand-damn-new (as in less than 6 months old) Dell laptop (Inspiron) is joining the Palm Pilot my old man got me in '02 in self-immolation. It just refused to turn on. I hope it isn't truly gone from this Earth, as I have no money to replace it. Geek Squad says I should have it back on Saturday but I'll believe it when I see it.

Next time you see me remind me to share with you my theory that all modern technology is driven by computer nerds and their quest to prove to George Lucas that THEY are the biggest Star Wars fan...

It sounds like you've taken your computer to the right people. They will set you straight. Hang tight.

Star Wars? What about Star Trek!?!

Now I love both Star Wars and Star Trek, but as far as my argument goes- how many Star Trek "apps" exist for the iPhone/iPad/iFrontalLobe as opposed to Star Wars? Star Wars is probably winning 3 to 1, I'm willing to venture.
