Making Tech Resolutions for 2012

Didn’t fol­low through on any of my res­o­lu­tions last year. Those CDs? Still in boxes or in the rack that dom­i­nates a full wall in our walk-in closet. New goal? Get them out of the house by the end of Jan­u­ary. DVDs, too. I’m going to go wild with Hand­brake and get all the Cri­te­rion Col­lec­tion titles I never get around to watch­ing onto the new iMac I plan on buy­ing first thing next year.

Upgrad­ing the home stereo, too. Thanks to the Wire­cut­ter, we’re going all in with a Pio­neer VSX 1021. I can’t wait to take advan­tage of Air­play like never before and finally get some good use out of my beau­ti­ful Axiom Audio speak­ers I bought back when. Can’t wait!

Impor­tantly, I need to unplug more. It’s one thing to stream music through the home and another to be glued to my iPhone. Need to cut down on that and spend more time away from glow­ing screens and non­stop news­feeds. I’m an info junkie through and through, but I need to give my eyes a break and make time for other things.

What are your per­sonal tech res­o­lu­tions for 2012? Any big pur­chases on the hori­zon? Ser­vices you’re plan­ning on optimizing?
