Toying with emotion

E-Learning Provocateur

The other day my friend told me she cried during Toy Story 3. I haven’t seen it myself, so I don’t know the nuances of the plot. But I do know it’s a cartoon! It amazes me how a story – though fictional and visually artificial – can affect human emotion. It’s no wonder then that a real story can impact us even more deeply.

I have used my desire to try out Widows Vista as an excuse to buy the most turbo-charged new PC I could lay my hands on; that's quad core, 4GB RAM, 2 x 250GB drives, 23" widescreen monitor, you name it. I decided to run it in parallel with my old PC for as long as it took to become stable with Vista, i.e. all hardware and software running. Well, in one day, I'm 95% there.

How much is an authoring tool worth?

Clive on Learning

If, on the other hand, you are talking about toys as opposed to tools of the trade - and I like toys as much as the next person - then $99 seems about right. When I buy a toy I have modest expectations about utility and don't expect any support. In fact many toys never get used. If Empower proves to be much more than a toy then that's fine, I'll enjoy using it. The recent release by Trivantis of Snap!
