Views & ReViews on Digital Gadgets For Us Baby Boomers!

And the saga continues…

Apparently, all the work in Unix has had some unexpected and unwanted consequences. My “keychain” is broken. Now, I am unable to do and see activities and files I could previously. It is as if I am a guest on my own computer (a stranger in my own land). So, now I’ll spend a bit of time trying to reset whatever to get my identity back.

BTW: I purchased iLife 08 for this technology review and, very similar to Apple’s gaff of NOT announcing version installation “challenges,” they neglected also to tell me that my G4 doesn’t have the horsepower to run iMovie 08. Wouldn’t that seem an obvious piece of information to share with customers (or potential customers)? On one hand, it was “only” $80.00, yet there is the principle of the matter.

  1. …and the cycle continues too! Buy new computer, buy software, upgrade, upgrade, upgrade hardware, upgrade, upgrades nearly impossible so shop for a new computer, repeat.

  2. So there appears to be an opportunity for someone or something to better manage our systems FOR US. Some sort of intelligent agent that could oversee the purchase and install process of software and advise the principle of what he or she should do. It would need to take consumer advocate approach.
