Technology falls apart

It's funny, in the past 3 days almost all my new technology has broken or is not working correctly. It's been pretty frustrating. Here's what's happened:

  • Roku Soundbridge -- Yesterday it just stopped working. I suspect it's an issue with my Windows firewall, although I'm still testing it.
  • Logitech Harmony Remote -- The LCD screen is broken, and no functions are working. I'm back to the same three remotes to opearte my TV, DVD, and Receiver.
  • Roland SPD-S -- One of the cables that connects my bass drum trigger to the SPD-S is broken.
  • Windows -- More errors than usual. I've had to manually shut down "processes" in the Task Manager for new applications and hardware I've installed.

I realize now, being someone who works in the tech industry, that technology does break. However, when everything breaks at once, it's kind of spooky.
