According to this article, an iPod helped Manchester United win the Carling Cup. Goalkeeper coach showed goalkeeper Ben Foster highlights of Tottenham players taking penalty kicks. My first reaction to this is that this could be a form of cheating. But being an advocate for technology, I came around to believe that athletes should be able to use whatever technology is at their finger tips in order to win. Winning is the name of the game, and this situation is similar to watching game film. The only difference is that the game film was being watched on the field. But who cares? All that matters is Tottenham lost.
One of the most impressive things about Dell for me is their online technical support. I recently had my hard drive fail (hence the lack of posts this past week) and using the online support was excellent. I like that I do not have to talk to someone on the phone and attempt to understand them. I can sit in front of my computer with the music playing. I am able to type out everything, making sure my point gets across to the technical support. Note, it does help to have a second computer if you need support for one, but the experience is priceless. I highly recommend getting a Dell just for the technical support, should you need it. I hope you don't though.
