Has Sony done anything right since the Walkman? - and now this......

With the exception of very good TV's (I love my 27" Sony Wega) and pretty good stereo equipment, Sony doesn't seem to do anything very well anymore.

Their largest flaw is that they are bound and determined to make things that don't work and play well with others. Examples:

Betamax - enough said

MiniDisk - a great format and media but not available on any hardware other than Sony and as a result adoption was limited at best.

Viao Computers - Some great equipment, but a royal pain to work on or to get it to work with non-Sony peripherals

Clie - A Palm Pilot with a proprietary memory card format and a higher price. Wonder why they didn't do well.

Playstation 3 - the world is waiting and XBox360 is kicking your ass

PSP (Playstation Portable) - A very slick piece of hardware, but Target and Wal-mart have already stopped carrying movies for this platforms proprietary format

BlueRay - or as I like to call it "Betamax: The Sequal"

And now they're killing other com…

Back to School

Today was Kelsey's first day of Pre-K. She was very excited and the morning went off without a hitch. Detailed reporting of her first day at her new school will follow. She is currently attending The Sunshine House school in Loganville, but we are hopeful that a spot will open for her at Loganville Primary (where Michelle teaches) very soon. Kelsey is currently 4th on the Pre-K waiting list at LPS. Keep you fingers crossed for us.

As you can see in the photo she is will be at home in the classroom or on the playground in her striped top and demin skirt (a big girl skirt, not a skort) from Old Navy. She completes the ensemble with the Team Strawberry Shortcake backpack and z-strap sneakers from Target.
