A few weeks ago we were out to dinner with a couple who live in a fancy dancy Sutton Place, NYC, condo. The wife is pretty mellow, but I saw her starting to get upset when she admitted that her laptop at home was giving her trouble. Then, all of a sudden, she threw her hands in the air, indicating she was ready to give-up. Five seconds later she is shrieking that she can’t take it anymore.
“I can’t stand when I have to wait too long for a website to open,” she said.” “The older I get, the more intolerant I become. I find myself closing the website and moving on to another activity. I want to punish the company I can’t access by not doing business with them. Somehow, I think it’s their fault.”
Eliot explained that it wasn’t her laptop that was giving her trouble, but rather it was her wireless router. She needed an upgrade. Just by coincidence, the New York Post, recently did a pretty interesting story on how “The Wi-Fi router is your mainline to the internet. It may be time for an upgrade.”
The story is worth reading because we all find ourself in this predicament. It says that “you may have to pay up to get the latest technology, but the benefit is worth it. The cheapest AC routers start at about $70, while the high-end models top $300.”
