Case In Point

I know I went a little overboard with that last technology post.  But come on.

Like, today:  I get to work, I'm getting ready to go to Nuclear Power and Public Policy, feeling a little nervous but excited, and I look at my new computer.  Total freak out, because there is not little pluggy thingy for me to hook my computer up to the classroom projector.  Luckily, I realized this two hours before class and the bookstore was still open and they hooked me up with this little doohickey:

FOR THIRTY FREAKING DOLLARS.  So now I can go teach class.

That's me making a judgmental face at the doohickey, in case you can't see it.

I still love the mac.  I took that picture with it, for God's sakes.  I mean, how cool is that?  But thirty dollars for that little pluggy thing?  Ridiculous.


  1. I actually liked your tech post. I just haven't had any time to comment on it...figured (hoped) we could do it in person. Ridick is right! The photo is the priceless part. xo m

  2. That is called a dongle. With a name like that, they ought to pay you to take it away from them.
