We're so inundated with so much new technology, it's impossible to keep up

The one guideline is that it's going to be superseded in the next six months, I mean I replaced almost all my vinyl onto CD, and then someone started talking about mini CDs. I thought I'd just been ripped off.

I think the principle is devastatingly exciting, absolutely wonderful, brimming with possibilities. I just wish they'd slow up and teach us first. Let us know how to operate the damned videos before we can go to the next stage.

I feel that there is a yawning gulf between me and understanding. I have a digital camera that I bought in October two-and-a-bit years ago and I can't even bring myself to open the instructions, it's possibly obsolete by now!

Whatever they make today is out of date by tomorrow, so that's why we are a society that just becomes disposable, because we advance tomorrow's technology, and we make a better item.

There was a point where technology could be explained to the proletariatm, they would understand; even a car technology you can understand, but the technology now has moved on. You have to be so specialised.
