I can truly relate to Immediacy portion of the reading when it comes to buying a book hardcover. There’s something more solid and just about a hardcover book versus a flimsy paperback.  However, I cannot mentally compare that equally to a person going to the premier versus someone seeing it after buying the dvd… I guess it all comes to to the viewer/reader experience, but I’m not much a movie goer in the first place…

Personalization will always be more expensive if someone else is doing the work for you.  If you yourself do the work, it is almost effortless because no one knows you better than yourself.

Authenticity and Interpretation are beyond in terms of programs because I always buy my programs so I make sure to have all the features and plug-ins.

Accessibility is sometimes a pain. I love the privacy of knowing I have control over who shares my files, music, etc… but sometimes it gets in the way when you want to share with someone else or transfer programs and files to a new computer.

Embodiment I connect more with when it comes to digital versions of things that can be physically bought. I don’t think I will ever understand the eBook and iTunes age. I spend so I can’t imagine having all my purchases on one fragile computer or eReader with the possibility that I’m only one accident (a drop or a spill) from losing all more purchases and data. Relying too much on technology is never a good thing.

Patronage I cannot a lot with Embodiment.  I want the artists creativity to its fullest. Not just the music, but the visuals (album are or book cover art) that inspired the piece. I want to pay for everything the artist has to offer.

Findability is becoming a real issue for non-internet dependent buyers. It’s harder and harder to buy dvds and music from stores that originally carried such a huge assortment of these products. Borders is out of business and B&N has such a small selection in comparison.  Electronic stores such as Best Buy have such tiny digital hardcopy sections now that it’s scary. It’s a shame that I have to be dependent on using online buying to get a bulk of my products…
