In years past this would have taken a trip to the dealership and a discussion with the parts department. They might have asked me to let their mechanic change the bulb for me, and would have charged me $30 for a $2 part. What technologies helped me?
1) Fast internet service
2) A computer hooked up to internet
3) A web browser (Safari, in my case)
4) Google search engine
5) A free phpBB discussion forum, and
6) Last but not least, some one with a desire to answer questions on the Acura discussion forum.
I don't know about you, but I could not live without web any more!
