Re: Excuse me Reg - your talking cr4p
Why, what do you buy in a recession?
Err, food, fuel and things around the house that needs mending. I don’t buy a monthly or quarterly stock of iPhones or iPads. I don’t dash out in an emergency to pick up a small tin of Desktop goodness, just for the hell of keeping up the image of being Technology affluent. This talk of PC sales being down, is like the talk they have about Tesco and Asda sales being down; and "poor old Morrisons, just made it 4th place."
Honestly, I build PCs, and despite my yearning to splash out and have CityLink drop off the latest Motherboard with USB3 as standard, I realize I still have the choice of ignoring the hype and keeping my feet firmly grounded in the real costly-world. Economies should not be built on PCs, tablets and computers: and people should be allowed the dignity to think – computers are not the be all and end all – worth-while quarterly investment the market men seem to want us to believe.
