    For the last two hours my house has been repeatedly buzzed by a low flying helicopter. Finally decided if the ol'interweb had info about what was going on. Turns out two people have been shot at a doctors office about a 1/2 mile from me. The suspect is at large.

I have had many bad experiences with devices breaking, not supported, wrong file types, losing data*, not keeping a charge, and ultimately losing my money on purchased products which are no longer accessible and losing my time trying to correct technical issues.

    I just find those types of devices do not fit my demeanor and lifestyle. I still use my desktop and laptop for work and every-time I venture into the tablets, smartphones, e-readers, and mp-3 players, I end up becoming very frustrated with the experience.So I stopped.

    I find joy in browsing my bookshelves. I find joy in picking up my records, looking at the cover art, and sliding the vinyl out of its sleeve.

    Digital media has only broken my heart and spirit.

    *or the company I purchased from not maintaining their licensing rights!*


    I will add my aversion to e-books. I do not own Kindle but have held them and read from them. In general I have tried reading e books on my phone, I Pad and laptop. I do not like the tactile feel of reading anything of length in this manner. Adding another device would not be an acceptable solution even if the Kindle reading experience was an improvement over the I Pad. I have accepted that I will only read short stories via e book.
