We, as consumers, are idiots.

Stop being a consumer. Manufacture what you need. Personally, every time I hear the word "consumer", I think of an infant on a teat. When I think about the degree to which I am a consumer despite my best efforts not to be, I'm ashamed of myself.

So you build your own LCDs from scratch now? I'd love to see your hand crafted motherboard! :P

Comment Why I love my 3g iPad... (Score 1) 395

I travel to conventions, and while many hotels have free wifi, in my experience it's often flakey... And actually some of the nicer hotels (like, say, the Twin Cities Sheraton) charge like 20 bucks a day for wifi. It's because of that, that I got the 3g iPad. I only pay for the dataplan a few months of the year too, so it's not like I have a constant bill for it. I also found that I was thankful I had a 3g iPad last night when I lost power for an hour. My wife and I propped up the iPad onthe smartcover and watched a show on Netflix over 3g. Very, very handy.
