Life can only be understood backwards; but it must be lived forwards.” – Søren Kierkegaard

The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, originally a short story by F. Scott Fitzgerald, then a film by David Fincher, tells the story of a man who ages backwards. In the movie adaptation, the seemingly ageless (I mean, c’mon…really) Brad Pitt is the perfect lead as Benjamin Button, a child who is born a small old man, who grows into a middle aged man, and so on, progressively getting younger as time passes. With such a unique and logic-defying concept, we at planIT HARDWARE immediately were reminded of how digital technology and its hardware progresses in much the same way. The first computers took up entire rooms; the first cell phone was as big as its inventor’s head. Now, we have palm-sized devices that fit in our pockets and serve several functions all in one small, sleek unit. From boxy, slow and bulky to fast, compact and sleek: this is the progression of digital hardware, and it bears a striking resemblance to that of Fitzgerald’s character.

Whether it’s new and slim or older and bulkier, we’ve got whatever you need here at our IT hardware warehouse, all in tip-top shape.

With devices like the Apple “iWatch” in development, let’s just hope these technological advancements continue to focus on function and don’t devolve into mere childish gimmick.

Intense, right?

The cheetah: he wears sunglasses and sells us cheesy corn puffs, he gets confused for the leopard (and vice versa) on regular basis (I had to Google the difference myself, just to make sure), and he’s wicked fast–the fastest animal on land, in fact. Wednesday, the New York Times reported that a new study has found the cheetah’s greatest advantage to be not so much in its speed alone, but in the versatility of its movements: its agility, its ability to pivot and leap sideways, change directions abruptly and slow down at a rate of as much as 9 m.p.h. in each stride.

What’s any of this have to do with planIT HARDWARE, you ask? Everything—as you’ll see.

Our warehouse is one giant, furry cat with cool spots. Not only do we carry used IT hardware that will produce high speeds for any network, but we’ve got the strength of firewall security devices, the versatility of any number of Cisco chassis, and the craftiness of hundreds of modules that will upgrade your network system into a force to be reckoned with. Let us know what you need and what we can do for you.
