I am not much of a mucic person—as a teen, I didn't own 45's or albums, I was not crazy about the Beatles or other groups. I like music, but it'd doesn't move me they way it does some.
I have CD's mostly and my stereo (do they still call them that?) plays up to 5 CD's at a time—but it also has a USB port—I can play MP3's too, and my computer too, is has a MP3 player.
But I think I only have one or 2 MP3 files. I am not too interested in investing all over again in a new format for music.
I know where I can find free on line rippers and take my CD's and make them into MP3 files. I know the technology exists—I just don't bother with it. I don't like ear buds (not any kind) and tried with a Walkman (cassette tape) and later with a Diskman, and while my phone plays MP3's--I haven't bothered. I am just not interested enough. I realize this makes me --well out of the loop--but since it doesn't really effect anyone else--what does it matter?
On the other hand--I do know my way around the internet--and while Google has templates I wrote a bunch of code (html) for my web page (and have done the same occasionally here on the blog)
They WANT to sell via the internet—They WANT web pages—They want to get into this for SALES and PROFITS but don't want to bother to really be part of it.
The kind (Harriet!) who are too busy to respond to email—and faced with 30—delete them all—because, after all people should be leaving (or responding to phone messages) –even though people contacted her via email from the web page—that said—Contact us HERE: and had a link to an email.
If some one want into the internet—great! Come on board.
If they don't, no problem, you can live with out it.
But, really if you have a web page, and it has a contact form, it should get to YOU. Either you buy in, and check your email and run your on line business, or you opt out, and stick to old technology.
But don't lure me in with internet communications, and then say, OH, call me.
Or “what? I didn't get the message (I don't check my email every day, and they there were too many, or some other excuse.)
Get with it, or get out of the way.
