Spending lots of money on PC hardware is pretty silly, as far as I'm concerned. There's more refurbished/used hardware that one could shake a stick at and it's absurdly cheap. Buying expensive PC hardware is like buying really expensive disposable pens: It's a waste of money, usually.

If you buy a used car, it will run into problems. If you go to a mechanic with even the smallest of problems, they will quote you $500

I think that you perhaps have a lot to learn about cars.

EVERY car has problems. They're mechanical things. Mechanical things break and wear out. If you're smart, and buy reliable things like Toyota Corollas, etc, they have very very few problems. If you're insistent on buying notoriously unreliable cars, then you're likely to have more problems. The idea that new cars are problem-free is absurd, and it's not likely that paying the huge new car price just to avoid paying potential mechanic's fees is a financially smart move, ever.

I don't know what kind of "mechanics" you go to, but I haven't had a +$500 repair in well over a decade. It sounds like you're A. buying bad cars and B. don't know enough about cars to know if a mechanic is ripping you off or not.

Part of what makes iTunes so hard to use, in my opinion, was the creation of a completely superfluous extra layer of a "playlist library" or some nonsense. People who use iTunes don't even know where their actual music files. A file system isn't a complicated thing for anybody to use, so I don't really see the point. Of course, all of the nasty memory-leaking hooks it puts into Windows is what got it banned from my company, but I still don't understand why it's so damned complicated to use. I just click on the music files I want to play with Winamp and play them.

Machines certainly can solve problems, store information, correlate, and play games -- but not with pleasure. -- Leo Rosten
