Weekly recap for the Week Ending 4.24.2009 (Click on Photo)
Clockwise, from top: asparagus spears with orange juice and olive oil; roasted ratatouille;
red potatoes with fresh thyme; and vegetarian ramen noodle soup
I finally took the plunge and bought a new camera. (The photos on this site have all, thus far, been taken with a no-frills, 4-megapixel, point-and-shoot-camera I bought 3 or 4 years ago for $79).
I'm an especially cautious consumer when it comes to purchasing electronic items, especially expensive electronic items, such as a digital camera or an LCD television.
I'm not one to buy the latest and greatest, because those items tend to be really pricey immediately when they hit the market. By waiting for prices to drop, though, I become concerned about the possibility of being stuck with something that becomes obsolete within a very short period of time.
With the Canon camera I just purchased (an older model), I'm pretty confident that I found the right balance between price and longevity.
But, honestly, given the pace of technological advances, who knows if my assessment was reasonable?
