Ever get that feeling that your the only person who's not crazy? I was staying at my grandmothers last night, and she was trying to get me to help her with her new 40" widescreen TV. I was pretty envious at first, I mean who doesn't want a 40" widescreen TV. Well, it seems the model she has (I'm not sure if this is true for other tvs of that kind) needs to have an external sound system, and all kinds of other weird gizmos hooked up to it (bear in mind, I am considered a rather tech savvy person), it's the most complex setup I have ever seen for a TV, and appearantly this was the reccomended setup. Her cable service also supplies a cable box (uh, since when did cable need a special box? When I had cable I didn't need a special box) with a DVR built in, which is bad news, because any device that does more than one thing, and not made by Apple, is a disaster waiting to happen. It was the most user-unfriendly setup I have ever seen. It made Windows look easy as pie. Is it really so difficult to make something that's simple to use, and not have a billion different components, and wires, and inputs, and outputs, and all that crap? I mean, I'm really good with electronics and such, but even I couldn't even figure it out. Then, I had to spend an hour explaining to my grandmother that DVR is very different from VCR, which I guess really isn't the designers fault, but I' about to explode anyway. On top of that, my grandmother has so many problems with Windows, and what's worse, she refuses to even look at a Mac, never mind try one out. I keep telling her that a Mac would be a perfect computer for her, plus, I'd actually be able to help her with her computer problems, instead of having to say I have no idea. She always says "oh you do too, your so great with computers", and I have to remind her that I don't use Windows regularly, so I really don't know much, I only know the basic stuff, like writing up documents and surfing the web on that so called "web browser", Internet Explorer. So, I have very little sympathy for my ol' granny on the computer side of things (whenever she has a problem, I jokingly resping "Hmm, looks like you need a Mac" ). Anyway, this isn't about my grandmother, it's about those crazy TVs with 30 different components, and cable/DVR boxes (um, if you want DVR, get a TiVo!), and all that stuff. Makes me want to slap myself in the face! Well, anyway, any thoughts on my story, or any times you thought you were the only one in the world who's not crazy?
