  •  I suppose a certain amount (10+ / 0-)

    of obsolescence is planned, but I think sometimes the whiz kids really think they're making improvements when they radically change the technology, while some of us like things as they are just fine.

    Resistance is futile.  You will be assimilated.

      Your implants arrive next week, then you will be downloaded with the latest operating system.

      Called "Urban Hominid," it has all the latest bells and whistles required for living in a city-based environment. It will also update all your drivers automatically from here on out, so that's a relief!

      Not sure about hardware upgrades though, you'll have to contact Borg customer service about those, which is a pain. They have a really messy phone menu, and the wait is rather long. Good luck.

      And yeah, I know tarantulas don't really act like that at all, so no snarking, this is the internet damnit!

        for a city-based environment, I'm in trouble.  I live in the country.
