I still have a 32" CRT style TV that I bought when D wasn't even a year old. He is 9. I would like to get an HDTV flat screen TV but won't even consider it until my TV is toast. My motto is, if it ain't broke, keep watching.
I have never owned an iPod or a phone that you can download music on. I rarely buy cd's and I am content listening to the radio. I have never listened to Satellite radio.
I just recently bought a digital camera. Before that I would use disposable cameras or the camera on my cell phone.
I have no desire to upgrade to Windows Vista.
I haven't purchased any kind of software other than kids' games for my P.C.
I do not own a DVR. I really do want one though.
When trying to explain a problem with any kind of electronic the word "thingy" will probably come out of my mouth.
I have only purchased 1 new computer since 1999.
If I have a problem with my computer I instantly call my friend Anne to help me. The only thing I know how to do is defrag my hard drive.
As you can see I am not very techno-savvey. I am however proud to say:
I FINALLY purchased a flat-screen LCD monitor for my P.C. It is a 19 inch wide-screen monitor by Acer. I bought it from TigerDirect.com and with the rebate and shipping it will be under $200.00
