Bobby Digital “I get computers putin”

What does it mean to get computers putin? I dunno, ask Cam’ron.

To me it means that you are tech-savvy.

I have a formal computer science education, that I halted in my second year of univesity to pursue more creative pastures.

I understand how computers think. That makes working almost any electronic device a synch for me.

Any operating system, Digital Cameras, Ipods, Phones, PDAs, Printers, Faxes, Scanners, Stereo Systems, DVD players…err ting my yout, err ting!

I got it down.

When it comes to working online, I get what I want, when I want, in terms of movies, music, television shows, books etc. In this sense you might think I am being a pirate. Well yo ho ho and a bottle half full of Angostura 1919 Rhum.

I may sample a lot online, but if something is really good, I will add it to my collection. And my collection, is substantial.

Under the links section on my blog you can find some sites that will help you filter through what is good and what is trash, simply by making everything that is out there available to you.

Right now, I have a 30GB ipod video, a BlackBerry Bold, a Canon Digital Elph 7.0mp camera, a Toshiba Satellite special edition Laptop, two external hard drives (250GB and 500GB) and an xbox360. I can store, view, and listen to all kinds of media on all of my devices.

I also walk with my 2GB usb key at all times just in case. On it I have the writing projects I am currently working on. It reminds me that I should be working or at least be thinking about the story in my head. It also allows me to go into the Apple  store or any computer cafe if I have to and print or make edits, although I can just edit my stories on my BBerry.

Technology has made our lives so much easier. But while it functions to connect distant spots on the globe it also threatens to disconnect us from the physical interactions we can enjoy outside the comforts of our tech-savvy abodes.

It is crucial to balanced living, that you do not allow your tech to consume you. Remember the call of the wild.

“There is a pleasure in the pathless woods;
There is rapture on the lonely shore;
There is society, where none intrudes,
By the deep sea, and music in its roar:
I love not man the less, but Nature more…” – Lord Byron

  1. No sir or madame, I do NOT mind commenting on my own posts!

    I just always think of things after the fact, that I should have added.

    Like, I should have expanded on how I hate it when non-computer literate people ask me how to use their devices.

    Parents and relatives are the worst for this. My Dad will buy every gadget in the store and then bring it home and have me operate it for him. Or write down instructions on how to use it. READ THE MANUAL!!!!!!

    I guess we have it easy – generation y or whatever you wanna call us – because we grew up as computers were just beginning their rapid evolution. We grew with them, and thus working with them is second nature to us.

    Try to keep that in mind and be as patient as possible with your dimwitted parents and relatives.

    That is all…

    NOW TUCK IN YOUR SHIRT!

  2. I’m so sad with a 1gig iPod. I know I knoooww! Stop laughing. No really Ty, I know you’re laughing. Stop.

    I need to scoop one. I beeeeeen needing to. Frig.
