The Agony and The Pain of Technological Failures

If you have a love-hate relationship with technology, then you have been through this before.
My 1 year old Sony Camcorder died a couple of weeks ago. The screen went out and is completely unusable. I called Sony and since it is out of warranty, it will cost me almost $400 to get it fixed. So it looks like I will be in the market for a new non-Sony camcorder. Then tonight, my big 12″ powered home theater subwoofer started making this incredibly loud noise. I’ve unplugged it, but my guess is that it’s fried as well. It is almost ten years old, so I’m sure it probably won’t make sense to try to get it repaired.

I don’t know if electronics go out in threes, but I really don’t want anything else to break. If you live on the cutting edge, sometimes you do get cut.
