Re: Which has more stupidity?

Y'know, I see a business opportunity here - refurbishing and hoarding dumb devices against the day when (or, admittedly, IF) the great unwashed finally get fed up of crapware-riddled shinies that demand two cows and your first-born son to even let you switch them on. I guess the biggest risk is whether that day will ever come; I'm not sure I'd bet the farm on it.

In the meantime, I'll just continue with my Luddite ways - no idiot lantern, analogue radio, downloaded and ripped music, dead-tree books and read-only offline snap-shots of interesting web pages before they get, er, 'corrected'.

Just call me No 48. I won't wear, acknowledge or respond to it though.
