Found this on a page of quotations about chess. I laughed, but it’s very true.
Isn’t it astounding in a way though, what level of chess playing and analysis and game storage you can get for less than a day’s pay, whether it’s Chess Genius for your Palm Pilot, or Chessmaster or Fritz for your PC? When you stop and really think about it, for less than $50, you can have a GM living in your house who’s willing to play chess with you 24 hours a day, analyze all your games, teach you openings, manage your game collection, practice tactics and endings with you, and won’t drink your beer, gripe about playing conditions, or make passes at your wife. – Kelly Atkins
