I am no longer the least technologically-advanced person in my age cohort: I got an mp3 player. It makes me feel an awfully lot like my dad to think that my only complaints thus far are that:

A. The buttons are too goddamn small for my Andre the Giant hands

B. I wish it was bigger to reduce my odds of losing it

Truly I am a 47 year-old man from Cicero in a younger man's body. And now for the shameless product plug: it's a Samsung T9. Holy crap does it rock. The screen is amazing, a lobotomy patient could figure out how to use the interface software, and the sound is home stereo-quality. I think I agree with CNet – why? Cause fuck Apple, that's why.

    Not to use the c-word, but it's fucking CUTE.

    Also, this makes me laugh. A lot.

    I'm 35. I don't have an MP3 player. I don't have a computer at home.

    Hell, I don't have cable, satellite or a landline phone either.

    We did recently get a cell phone however! Damn thing. It's too small and I always forget to push the green button after dialing and the red button when I'm done. It should give me a dial tone when I pick it up and hang up when I put it down like a phone is supposed to do. And the buttons are too small for my Valkyrie fingers. I invariably have to redial b/c I hit two or three buttons at once.

    So, do you still feel the technological revolution missed your neck of the woods? In comparison to me, you are at the height of technowizardry.

    I hope this makes you feel better about it all.
