If Martha Stewart Were a Geek
To be fair, Newsweek did offer something longer than four sentences with three links. Stephen Levy is clever, and he can write.
OK, you’ve all got DVD players now. But before pondering the next stepÃÂ¢Ã¢âÂ¬Ã¯Â¿Â½Ã¯Â¿Â½?Blu-ray? HD DVD? Downloaded movies?ÃÂ¢Ã¢âÂ¬Ã¯Â¿Â½Ã¯Â¿Â½?give a thought to that old VHS player in the garage.

The prose is musical and the mood is light. I enjoyed it.
