Re: Anybody like Toronto Star new web site?

Patience is a virtue. Some day you will learn to slow down and enjoy a life without instant everything. This is just the natural progression from these ridiculous little electronic trinket smart phones and other garbage people are tethered to now.

Hey am old now and already slowing down. I even drive at 120KM/h and not at 160-170Km/h, even in Toronto.

But sometime you need web sites to get news. Like when terrorists attack. or shooting in school.

You realize the irony as you post on a forum right? lol

It's not about patience, it's about knowledge. I don't care too much about reading on murders and stuff, but i find several stores, blogs etc intriguing. I don't care to read gossip like TMZ or perezhilton. I like some news.

Though the star's quality in journalism has declined i still enjoyed reading the odds and ends. Several articles about every day life that weren't news i also doubt would be printed on paper. As said previously, i enjoy reading people's comments on stories too.

You're not quite there if you need instant news. I remember 9/11 and found CNN quite adequate.

Yes, but just as missionaries of old had to go forth into the heathens to spread the word I now must go forth into the digital ether to spread the word of the truth about the fallacy of our modern reliance on technology.

Hey, we agree there! lol... Some might think the world would come to an end should technology stop working. I think it'd be the greatest thing to man kind.

I think this sentiment is best summed up in one of my favorite scenes in the movies with Snake Plissken in Escape From LA.

I can't find the links to the mobile site.
The full site shows up, which isn't as bad as the previous full site on my mobile device.
