The diary entries of a little girl in her 30s! ~ Part 2

    I thought that was spectacular. It's not original in the idea that we are slaves to our gadgets, their manufacturers (I'm going to interpret this as a shot at all people, not iPhone users in particular) and whatever they may give us. That big bad robot in the end could've been exchanged to "lust", "envy" or some other feeling, and they could just as well have been wearing HD 600 -> HD 650 -> HD 800, and this movie could've been about head-fiers. We are consumers, and from a macro perspective, we are idiots. As said, it's not original, but the movie itself was a great take on consumerism - a great way to showcase our behaviour from a distance.
     
    I have to admit though, that I enjoy being an iDiot. It's not that my gadgets are necessary for survival, or so. They're just convenient and awesome to use and I like it.
     
    Reminds me of an old xkcd comic, but I couldn't find it.

    Yep nothing new but true. Consumerism is ok to me as long as you are aware and keep it under control, and most of all, as long as you derive pleasure from it.

    For some reason I'd noticed the Vali earlier but it failed to register properly.
     
    It'd be interesting if Schiit is planning tubed and solid state versions of amps at each major price bracket. A tubed counterpart to the Mjolnir would look pretty studly.
