Internet Rant

I have said it before, but it bears repeating, not all of us want to watch a news video. I can read a heck of a lot faster than the time it takes for any computer that I am on to load a story. Gee, guess I might miss that ad, but 9 times out of 10, I will click out of a story if it is a video.

My newest rant is when reading about the 10 uses for Toe Jam or some other interesting list I might find, I want to see it all on one page! Give me a long scroll over multiple clicks and page loads and you've got yourself a reader.

Changes, my google reader and have both changed their formats. CNN, I can live with, however my reader is causing me to skip stories in order to clean up my pages. The jury is still out, but it's not looking good for a positive vote.

Wow, feel somewhat better, off to play some Canasta to calm down.


  1. I have yet to watch any video online. Just don't care. Would rather have a book in my hand. . .

  2. I hate when they just start playing and my volume is turned up, it scares me out of my shorts sometimes.

  3. Polly,
    I actually do catch up on some tv shows online due to husband watching football! It's the news videos that I could do without!

  4. You seem to be ranting more since your return from blog-vacation. I think that's great. Speak your mind! That's what your blog is for! But I wonder, did you miss venting about all these great and small when you weren't blogging? Or did you find another way to let it all out?


Any thoughts or musings of your own to add?
