[Five Deadly Everythings]

Lonely cyborgs

Posted in missives, tech by Jef on June 13, 2008

Hey to my fellow Canajuns, check this link to see if you fit the criteria: http://www.matchstick.ca/mp3/

They’re looking for people to try out a new gadget and provide feedback. It’s got me thinking about how many portable devices I use regularly:

Ipod
Cellphone
Digital Camera
Digital Recorder
Nintendo DS


I’m in the market for something that plays video. I’m not in love with the ipod screen and the PSP is a little too bulky (plus I prefer the Nintedo games — though I like to play I’m not really a gamer and Nintendo is more friendly that way).

But yeah, I have a reputation for being tech-stupid (not un-earned, mind you), but I do get a kick out of these portable entertainment devices. Marketing companies may say tastemakers, tech-writers say people are merely plugged in, psychologists call us disconnected loners. What say you?

Everyone once in awhile I’ll enjoy a break from the earphones and remember I enjoy the sounds of the street and eavesdropping on conversations. But would I ever give up my player for good? Only for a better model.

    the only catch is that you have to provide feedback on the product and talk about it to friends.
