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?
