The last two weeks of David Pogue videos on the NYTimes website have shown us that the guy has totally cracked. And he has more fun at work than we do.
First, last week's video. David, who just the week before, wouldn't stop going on about his love for MiniDV video tapes, this week reviews a gadget by Sony that transfers all "old tapes" to DVD. (Aha, you've come around to the idea that rewinding sucks.) He likes it, and reports it burned the occasional coaster. What's remarkable about it is watching the senior gadget journo's setup to his video review. Hit play if you want to see a grown man relive his 7th birthday, his prom, his learning to ride a bike, and even some crib time as an infant. Frightening, but I'm somehow entertained enough to watch it, I don't know, seven or eight times. Yesterday. OK, I'm totally obsessed with the non-standard format. Is this the NY Times?
