Proud troglodyte
This is an archived article that was published on sltrib.com in 2012, and information in the article may be outdated. It is provided only for personal research purposes and may not be reprinted.

Vince Horiuchi's column on adopting the latest home-viewing technology struck a nerve ("With new line, Slingbox's time has come," Tribune, Dec. 18).

I am one of those troglodytes who tends to hold on to a proven way of doing things until it has been totally superseded by a quicker, less expensive and altogether superior method.

So I no longer own a Model T, icebox or 8-track. But I still have hundreds of VHS tapes and two combination DVD/VHS machines that work very well.

The picture is not always perfect, but it is quite good, and it has never broken apart or stopped working at a crucial moment in the plot, as DVDs often do. So I'll happily stick with my tapes for the foreseeable future.
