Oh my, oh my. Why does tech make me drool? Maybe it’s because I respect the brilliant work of software and computer engineers? I have as hard a time believing this as you do.

I’m angsty about this in general, but very specifically today because I just bought one of these:

Now, don’t think that because I bought this sexy conglomeration of circuit boards, wiring, and piano black plastic casing that I have the money to do so. I do not.

My purchase was not driven by sound budgetary and financial reasoning. It was driven by compulsion and techno-lust. Fill me, oh material things! Your pleasing electric hum will drown out the wind howling across the empty desert of my soul.

I’m hoping not to get bored of this newest toy in fifteen days owing to its ability to play Blu-ray movies and DVDs.  That way even if the DuoShock 3 gets dusty like my Wii-motes and Xbox 360 controllers before it, at least I’ll always be able to watch Starship Troopers in HD, the way it was meant to be seen.
