I'm in the middle of trying to read reviews and sort through information about a certain technological device that we are thinking about getting.
But I am just not that into it.
I lack the patience. I lack the required interest and thus, I get bored.
I can't quite determine what information is reliable.
Or what information is actually important and necessary in making the decision.
I'd rather just buy what looks good and see if I like it. I figure, when using it I probably won't know enough about it to determine if don't like it anyway, so what difference does it make.
A television is a television is a television. If I can find the Food Network or HGTV, I'll be okay. I don't need to be able to play my ipod on it or have it record a lot of shows.
A camera is a camera is a camera, especially with my lack of picture skills. If it documents the occasion, but comes nowhere close to being accepted by National Geographic, it will be good enough for me.
A cell phone is a cell phone is a cell phone. If I can get ahold of my Mom, send texts to my Dad, pic messages to my husband, and get by without charging it every night, I'll be happy.
Oh, I guess I'd like to have service along most highways, just in case I have a reason to call AAA.
A computer is a computer is a computer. Ha, not quite. A Mac is a Mac is a Mac. If I can access a text editing program, store and organize a few non-National Geographic-worthy photos and read my email, I'll be okay.
I know this makes me less domesticated, money-savvy, and technologically advanced than many of others, but its my natural state of mind and sometimes, our abilities only stretch so far.
Reading and comparing reviews when acquiring techonological devices is not in my skill set.
