I went to college with David Pogue, technology guru and columnist for the New York
Times. Back then, he was a musical theater auteur with a show called Odysseus: The Man and His Music, in which I earned the starring role, less for my acting ability than for my full beard and big nose. I like David’s reportage because he really understands that technology is only as good as its interface with our lives. It’s why he’s such a huge Mac fan, and why when he buys a cell phone for himself, and still has buyer’s remorse, we begin to understand why shopping for "the best" is so darn difficult. David’s NY Times Blog post today is about the LG 8700 he bought, and the LG 8300 he wishes he bought. Personally, I’d still choose the flashier 8700. Fashion matters. Which makes me glad I still have a year left on my current phone contract. Plenty of time for something truly better to show up.
