The Web was supposed to make things simpler for us all, right? At first, it seemed that way. Lately I find myself succumbing to the massive amounts of information it offers.
Recently I wanted to buy a portable docking player for my iPod Touch. No biggie, right? I went to an electronics store, saw what they had, talked to a salesperson and made a purchase. Then I came home and looked it up on the Internet. The reviews – and there were plenty of them – weren’t good. I went back to return the unopened player. Then I went online and bought the one most highly recommended. Granted, it is a great sounding player. But would I have been happy with my first choice? I’ll never know.
Are you becoming a victim of the endless search for the absolute perfect item? Checking Amazon reviews, Google, Facebook, every source you can get, then making a decision – until you read something else?
For me, the web’s infinite amount of content perpetuates the “grass is always greener” expression. Simple really shouldn’t be so complicated.
