Default Everything new sucks

An enjoyable read:

Everything New Sucks

Quote:
It hit me as I was visiting my mom on Long Island, and watching her 25" color TV.

Like everything in mom's house, it's a traditional CRT (tube) TV, with the normal-shaped (4:3) screen. She has no cell phone, no microwave, and not even a push-button phone.

Not only does her old CRT TV have much better colors than any modern plasma, LCD or LED flat screen, every picture always fills her big, tall 25" screen, not just the middle or sides as they do on HDTVs. On her TV, not only does every picture fit, the news graphics are also always exactly where they should be on the sides and corners, and not hanging out in the middle of her picture.

All this, and no one looks stretched-out or fat. Everything looks like it should.

Then I started to think a little more broadly as we enter a new decade. I came to the horrifying realization that it's not just new TVs that suck: everything new sucks!

How can this be?
