    My first reaction, sadly, was why do I have to read part of the article in my email, then click to see the website with sadly, again, part of the article, only to have to sign in to read the rest of it! It's a good thing you're such a good writer, because I wouldn't jump through those hoops to read just anything! Keep up the tirades - I love em!

      One key point that I think you're missing is that the iPod with video capability can be connected to any TV with RCA jack inputs (like the iPod photo before it). This makes the new iPod a portable video jukebox that you can EASILY carry to Grandma's house and show home videos of little Timmy that you made with iMovie (or any content that you yourself can load into the iPod: TV shows, ripped DVD movies, and even porn). You don't have to be held hostage to that 2.5" screen.

        Aw shucks, thanks!

        A little tip: If you click on the "More ..." link at the bottom of the article paragraphs that appear in your e-mail, rather than on the link attached to the article title, it takes you to the next paragraph of the article rather than to the top of the article. (If you use the link attached to the title of the article it takes you to the top of the article.) I don't know why you have to sign in each time. MC Press keeps me logged in as long as I'm surfing from my usual computer. I assume that's cookie based, so it may have something to do with your cookie settings. I think the reason why MC Press doesn't put the whole article into the email is because some people subscribe to the publication primarily for the tech tip. They might scroll through the e-mail rather than use the table of contents at the top in the off chance that they will find that week's tirade topic interesting, but they primarily just want to get to the tech tip. My mother refuses to believe it, but some people don't like my writing (and some people hate it) and they don't want it to intrude too much on the publication. I happen to know that at least one MC Press person, and probably more, lurks in these forums. So I'm sure your criticism has been duly noted.

            Ok, so my Internet Explorer V6 is set at medium high, and I still have to sign in when clicking on the "more" part of the email at the bottom of the article. Today was the first time I've ever had to sign into the site. No biggie...just my own little tirade.

              My dream cell phone should eliminate the ipod and many more devices, especially the GPS. O2 from UK comes quite close to my dream phone but still lacks most things. My dream cell phone should have the following. 1. Phone and Netmeeting 2. Wrist Watch and PDA 3. GPS and map 4. MP3 Player and JPEG Player 6. TV and Satellite Radio 8. Email and Internet 10. Still Camera and Movie Camera plus plus ...

                  I'm looking forward to the day when I do not have to use them. Some call them mobile's, other call them cell phones. I call them handcuffs. Dave

                    ... or whatever is the spelling of the white fluid that Gem H'dar used to intake hypodermically instead of food or water. Corporate world would love to see us work 24 hours a day for the cost of popcorns. No sleep, no food, no drink, no sex, no rest, no emotions, just work.

                      Hmmm, let me think. You are looking forward to a day when we each would be required to have an RFID implant. When someone wants to call us, the network will search where we are and shout from a Public Address System, "You lousy bum out there, you are needed at such and such place. Make haste." Or maybe you are looking forward to even an advanced day when we will have Borg like implants in our brain and the collective (the corporate world in our case) will directly instruct our nervous system as to what to do.

                        My point (and I do have one) is that I am looking forward to a life with greater privacy. One where I am not interrupted by others wishing to communicate with me for the purpose of having me do something that I am not currently doing, and adding to the stuff I am already doing. Hopefully there will come a time, when I can walk along the beach to the end of the pier, and stick a line in the water. . . .no bait....no hook. . . .and just watch the sun come up......No interruptions. Maybe later, I'll listen to a Mozart Symphony. . . . .without interruption. As far as the brain implant is concerned, I have already addressed this issue in another topic: The idea was put forth fourty years ago in the movie "The President's Analyst". The concept was that "The Phone Company" was trying to conquer the world, and the idea of instant communications was an evil plot. Dave
