About 8 months ago our home PC went kaput. At the time getting it fixed wasn’t in the budget. I Googled the error messages and they were consistent with the hard drive failing.
I kept saying I was going to open it up and replace it. Its been a few years, but ive done it before. But I just never got around to it.
So tonight I was just sitting around and the urge hit me. I started cleaning and disconnecting and pretty soon I was dragging the 15 year old particle board computer desk to the road. And now its all packed up and sitting in a closet. I dont know what I’m going to do with it. But its not sitting in my den collecting dust anymore…
I found over the last few months that I didnt really miss the PC, and I could do everything I need to do on my phone. The one thing I cant really do is play with Photoshop. But really I wasted way too much time playing with that anyway.
So good bye personal computer lifestyle and hello smart phone culture.
