Things to Get Rid Of
I'll keep my desktops... love to customize inside and out, including peripherals. I use one desktop for general use, one for gaming, one for computer repair (using XP! where I can insert infected/damaged HDs and fixem with no fear of corrupting/infecting my main unit) and another purely for digital video playback to my large screen LCD TV (but I DO keep two laptops for travel and in-house portability). FlipCam is great - the HD model is cheap but I keep my click n shoot for spontaneous shots because of the higher resolutions. I still use (infrequently) a Pay n Talk cellphone... landline rates are cheaper for home use. Highspeed broadband? best thing going in rural areas in Canada. Alarm clocks will never go away... I'm a snooze button junkie and real clocks are more irritating than digital tones. Cable is OK... satellite TV is not much better - any "news" can be found online and movies are best in a theatre with popcorn and licorice. USB thumb drives are WAY faster and convenient for data transfer when you can meet computer to computer or want to boot into a "sterile" environment. Books should be revered and passed along to be shared; your paper bookmark means much more than a button on your browser. I don't use GPS; I can still read a roadmap and remember the directions...
