We live in a 'fringey' area of the suburbs and I regularly lament the passing of
good old analog TV. Digital TV in general is a Frankenstein monster. I won't
get into just how very, very much I hate digital TV. But it is a real pain to try
to live with over-the-air 'free' digital TV broadcasts that keep dropping out
their audio (totally muting, not just a little scratchy as with analog...). Ditto
for freezing, pixelating video in weak signal situations. OMG I get so darned
mad at the sad state of broadcast TV...(we gave Comcast the axe a while
back and completely severed all TV subscriptions- all we get is internet from
those cable guys now...and the freakin' bill is still close to a hundred bucks!)
Your totally bricked door locks article just reminds me of how 'oh so advanced'
digital technology is (NOT!!!)
P.S. Yeah- I'm going to bring back analog computers and vacuum tubes.
That's the ticket...
