Why do you shop online?

A news tidbit offered up some interesting numbers about Canadian shoppers.
Online shopping up to $15 billion (almost $13 billion in 2007)
The number of orders are up since 2007. (95 million from 70 million)
Men more likely to buy something online than women (42% compared to 37%).
Most common product being travel services.

So why do you shop online?
I do it mostly out of convenience. When I’m at work and I want to buy something I can do it by a click of a button. Biggest complaints about in store shopping: store stock, lineups, the people, and parking. Nothing is worse than driving to the mall to buy something on sale only to see that “out of stock” sign. Then I feel obligated to buy something to ensure that the whole trip was not a waste. Who likes coming home empty handed?

Lineups suck, plain and simple. Nobody likes to be stuck behind the chatty senior, or the lady shopping for a family of 12 and two shopping carts, or in the so called “express lane” where the cashier is waiting for a price check on an item. Lines suck.

People suck too. I’m talking about the rude, smelly, fat, talking loudly on your cell phone losers who you’re grouped together with all looking for that item on sale. Doesn’t it suck too when they get the last one just ahead of you? GGrrrrr.

OMG, over there, the holy grail of parking! Oh wait, that’s a handicapped zone. *sigh, keep circling. End up following someone to their car, only to have them take 10 minutes to buckle their seatbelt, and fix their hair, before even starting the car. Then you park, rush in to buy your item, find out it’s out of stock, get back to your car to see your car door dented because of the idiot who parked next to you. Who designs these parking spots to be so small in the first place?!

Free shipping almost always seals the deal for me. If you can offer me delivery to my door at no extra cost I am more likely to buy stuff from your website, even if it’s not on sale.

Robot Sexy Time!

Is the regular love doll not doing it for you? Well get ready for Roxxxy (video) the sex robot! Hi-five! Sexy time! And you thought Real Dolls were creepy. Now, I know what you’re wondering, what’s so special, besides the $7,000 price tag. It/she comes with a laptop that is programmed with it’s/her personality. I’m guessing built in microphone and speakers to respond to voice commands. Wow, just wow. Who spends this much time building something like this? But more importantly who’s going to buy this sexbot? Rich bastards no doubt.

Control the pipes, control the world

2010 hopefully will yield fancy new technologies to put me further into dept however the upcoming year may be a year on content control. A couple of countries so far are attempting to modify their population’s behavior by controlling the data they have access to on the Internet.

China has heavily censored information available to their tech savvy republic however recent attempts have been more heavy handed. In a pornography crackdown approximately 5,394 were arrested however the report did not say how many were eventually charged. Perhaps some *ahem favors were performed to get out of jail? Or maybe some “hands were greased”? Sounds like some drum “beating” by the communists. Good luck at trying to control your 360 million Internet users.

Close on the heels of China is … Australia (really?). A controversial Internet filter is set to go ahead despite the many complaints of the masses. So much for free speech. Surprisingly Australia is trying to do the same thing as China within a democracy. Hmm, what do you think the odds of success will be?

The new year may come down to content censorship, depending on where you live. It will surely test the boundaries of morals, free speech, religion, and government. Limits of tolerance will be stretched and re-aligned. We might be seeing the creation of a new Internet: the clean and dirty version. Sign me up for the dirty version please!

Things I Want, but haven’t bought yet

XBox 360 – why? The games, the freaking awesome games. If there ever was a year to abandon my pc it should have been this year. The lineup of epic games for this console is long. Turn it into your networked media center, play HD movies (LOL), DLC, rent movies through the Xbox live network, frag people in MW2. Let’s just hope you don’t get the red ring of death … oops, spoke too soon.

Android Phone – Motorola Droid/Milestone or even the Cliq. HTC Touch Pro, or the Dream. Even a LG Eve. The Google mobile platform is the perfect alternative for those who find the iPhone lacking. Multitasking, open source development, not as many apps as the Apple store (ok fine), no multi-touch (dang it!), but hey, it’s not Apple (yay). Having a physical keyboard is awesome, touchscreen is overrated.

GPS – seriously, I know where I’m going. Not to say that there isn’t a use for a mapping device. They most certainly come in handy from time to time but I just couldn’t bring myself to spend the $200 on one this year. But it’s one of those status symbol things, if you don’t have one of those suction cup ring thingies on your windshield, you are a loser. Perhaps Santa will offer me the gift of direction this year, but probably not because I’ve been a jerk the whole year.

Netbook – ok, just to clarify, I do have a 9″ netbook which was clearly an impulse buy but after extended use I have found the keyboard to be lacking. A 10″ netbook has just enough keyboard to make things comfortable. However, rather than spend another $300 for a slightly wider version I need something else. A faster cpu, better graphics card, more hard drive space, something! Let’s hope there’s a 2.0 Ghz Atom processor in the works. Being able to compute anywhere, anytime definitely has it’s advantages. Hmm, so now I’m working ALL the time … how is this good for me again?

Bluetooth headset – even though it’s now the law in Ontario (no talking on cellphones while driving) I haven’t got around to investing in a bluetooth headset. For the amount of time I spend in my car, let alone talking while driving, I can’t justify spending $50 – 100 for a headset. If it’s really important they’ll leave a message or call back. I ain’t pulling over to answer a stupid phone call.

Laptop – with the latest i5 and i7 offerings from Intel the price was right for an upgrade. Again my sensibility got the better of me. While I’m not sold on the i5 or i7 series, going for a top end duo core 2 laptop with a 2.8 Ghz processor would have been a nice addition to my technology collection.

Data storage – MORE! It was the year of the terabyte. Prices were more than affordable but why didn’t I break down and buy a 1 or 2 TB hard drive? Well it turns out I don’t actually have that much data. And what I have nicely fits on to a 500GB hard drive and/or CDs/DVDs (backed up to another 500GB hd of course). Sure I could buy another hard drive but I honestly have more than enough storage as is.

Bluray DVD player – um, no. I don’t see the overwhelming argument here for going from dvd quality to bluray dvd quality. If I did give in to my impulses then that would mean I’d go with a PS3, which goes against my Xbox purchase (do I really need 2 gaming consoles?). Although bluray dvd movies got real cheap, real quick, I don’t think I’d want to invest a bunch of money into building up a bluray collection, while my existing dvd collection gathers dust. Hmm, I guess that wasn’t a smart investment after all.

Oooh, shiny stuff!

Who doesn’t like shiny stuff? Oh did I mention it can store all of your porn and it will fit in your pocket? A-Data has “cum” out with some new portable external hard drives. Currently come in 3 flavors: light sliver, cherry pink, ocean blue, and a fancy leather pouch to boot. All models are offered in the 250GB or 500GB variety (which equals lots of hours of you masterbating). They are quite eye catching so don’t be surprised if you catch people staring at your unit.

This might not be such good news if you live in China. Lookout, here comes the censorship machine! It appears that all new pc’s will soon be equipped with anti-porn software. Guess the government no likey porn corrupting their impressionable youth. The special software was designed by Jinhui Computer System Engineering who I’m sure greased (or lubed up) a few hands to get the government contract to produce the software. Hello spammers! The D-day for the requirement is July 1st. It totally unrelated news, get ready for a new bot-net to be launched on July 1st with an army of a billion situated in China.

Want vs Need

Gadgets! Can’t get enough of them. If I had my way, I’d be maxing out my credit card every week. However it is important to distinguish between what you want vs what you need. That “high” of a shiny new gadget quickly wears off after the first week. Before you reach for your credit card do you actually “need” it? Are you going to put the new features/design to good use? Are you buying it because the model number is simply higher than the one you already have? Does you existing gadget still meet your needs?

want: new model/color/design, latest materials, “cool” factor
need: storage capacity, useful features, broken,

Sure we all “want” the latest and greatest but we don’t necessarily NEED it. So, no you should run out and buy that cell phone with a 12 megapixel camera. And no you should buy a new quad core laptop for basic web surfing and email. So you won’t be the coolest kid on the block, big deal. At least you won’t be putting yourself in the poor house.

Delta airlines to block wifi porn

“Delta will filter the content on its in-flight Wi-Fi service, the airline said today. Although the company has previously been concerned about the ramifications of active censorship on its GoGo-based service and has intended to rely on attendants alone to screen out adult sites and other material that might make some passengers uncomfortable, it now says it will implement a content filter that automatically blocks certain sites before they reach cellphones, notebooks and other devices capable of a Wi-Fi link.” (link)

I have a question, let’s say I bring my own porn and decide to stream my videos wirelessly to other passengers, will I get kicked off? OR how about if I decide to “make” my own porn (aka join the mile high club) will I get kicked off? Are adults only flight available ’cause I don’t think I can go a few hours without porn …
