11 months

OK, peeps, so now we are a 4-computer household with 1 operational computer. Did you know that the average life span of a computer these days is 11 months? That's right; most of us can expect to have to go out and purchase a new computer about a year down the road. It's like mobile phones. How many of you have actually had a cell phone that worked until your contract was ready for renewal so you could get a "deal?"

So, next time you read in TIME or Newsweek or some other magazine, or see on TV how wonderful Bill Gates is to give away money to good causes, ask yourself this: If I didn't have to by a new computer or some gimmicky 'upgrade' as often as I do, could I actually afford to give more money to causes I personally support?"

Shite, you know the answer already.
