My Technical Step Back

I don't know why but I have taken a step back from Technology in the last few years. When I was younger I knew everything there was to know about every new gadget or piece of technology that was out there and now I just don't seem to care. The first thing I don't really care about is Blu-ray DVD's. What the hell are Blu-ray DVD's???? I know how they work but what makes a movie different because it is on Blu-ray and why do they keep advertising them? The next thing I don't care about is Twitter. I don't see why you need to write a sentence about what you are doing every 12 seconds. I mean I struggle to fill a blog post with what I have done over the past week let along writing every minute. I also hate iPhones. Not because they are part of this new crazy technology but because I don't have one. The problem with my work is that it is always dirty and dirt kills phones. It is pointless me getting a phone with a big touch screen because it will be ruined in 6 months. Damn I want cool apps tho!!!

Well now that I have had my rant I need to mention that I am only 23 and not 60 so I didn't type this up on a typewriter, but I am sticking to simple things. Maybe an iPhone one day but definitely no bloody Blu-Ray.

Thanks for your comment on my blog.

About your dilemma on Blu-ray DVDs, a Blu-ray is essentially a DVD with upgraded memory. This means no compressing data and thus, the data -- in this case film & sound files -- are preserved, thus delivering a higher quality of visuals and sound. This is pretty much the same concept behind the transition from VCD to DVD. Soon, 3D movies might be formatted onto Blu-ray discs...
