I remember when the DVD hit the scene back in the late 90's. I swore it'd never take off, and refused to indulge in the trend. I couldn't imagine how people would give up their VCRs, set to tape their favorite shows, just to watch movies on occassion. I knew there were too many Days of Our Lives fans out there to let that happen.
So, I was wrong. Now I think the DVR - and its DVD cousin, I suppose - is one of the greatest inventions of all time, but ten or so years ago I couldn't have imagined how technology (and The SOAP Network) would make all the elements of home entertainment fall so perfectly into place.
Still, despite owning two iPods and even one of those speaker docking things from which to play it for the masses, I still like to buy my music brick and mortar style. I like reading CD liner notes. Because I don't like fooling with an iPod while driving, I like being able to choose a particular CD I want to hear while in the car. Perhaps in a decade or so I'll change my tune, but for now, I am old-school with my music.
As all music buyers, both electronic and from the Target know, Tuesday is the day that new albums can be purchased. That's why at lunch I'll be going to pick up these:
Because I've already listened to each online I know I want to own them...
What trend were/are you slow to embrace?
