Stop Buying Crap

This rant on Gizmodo by Joel Johnson is dead on target. In it he takes on the world, telling us not to waste time and money on the bleeding edge of inadequacy.
...Stop buying products that serve any other master than you. Use older stuff that works. Make it yourself. Only buy new stuff from companies that have proven themselves good servants of their customers in the past. Complaining online about this stuff helps, but really, just stop buying it.
He's talking specifically about consumer tech gadgets here (and I've done my own share of ranting about stupid tech (scroll to April 15th)), but the advice applies equally well to all tech: computers, software, the whole ball of wax. Take your time and keep your money. Buy what works.
