It’s true and it doesn’t only hold true for media, the web and the New York Rangers. I also LOVE gadgets. I have always been into mobile phones, cameras, console wars, etc.

I’ve recently capitulated and determined that I finally NEED to purchase a camcorder (more on that some other time). After doing extensive research on sites from CNET and Amazon to blog reviews and B&H, I decided on the aforelinked DCR-SR85. I’m hoping it arrives when I return from Vegas on Wednesday morning …

I’ve also decided, after recent difficulties finding what seemed to be simple locations, I’m in desperate (sic) need of a GPS device. Though the iPhone’s turn-by-turn directions are very impressive and useful, it is not a viable or safe solution. I cannot decide between Garmin and TomTom and am confused as to how prices on older devices haven’t dropped enough … the low range still is in the $150 – $200 area and has been for a VERY long time. Anyhow. I have yet to find out which one I will get because I’ve only used Garmin’s in rental cars and have never tried a TomTom. Have you?

There is a lot of debate about HD and iLife and even the length of time it would take for any computer to compress, edit, process, etc. HD video. I’m always the first one to get the best of breed or top model, but in this case I just didn’t see how HD for a consumer who wants to edit video is feasible … Have you heard or experienced otherwise?

Anyhow … it’s bedtime.
