I’m a late adopter….


Time was when I would jump in and muck with the newest and most untested hardware and software in order to be on the bleeding edge of the technological curve. Those days have passed; I’m far more content to have a computer that does everything well than to have the newest, fastest, and most likely to crash machine out there.

The hardware and home software market has come to reflect my apathy. Most computers now are incrementally better than they were a year or two ago, but the six-month cycle of amazing new graphics cards and the like is over.

But the one place innovation keeps pushing forward every day is web-based software, particularly when it comes to blogging. That’s where my tendency towards laziness keeps me way behind the curve.
