I love technology I’m one who’s always trying to figure out why I need the latest gadget (as long as I can figure out how to work it!) We recently found out that we could stream Netflix to our Wii, but neither my dh nor I could figure out how to do it. It’s so humbling when we have to wait for a kid to come home and show us things.
I’d been lusting after the iPhone since it was introduced, looking on with envy as people accessed the web *fast* while my phone took an hour. ATT doesn’t work well up here so I had convinced myself that I would switch to Verizon to get the new version. Luckily my provider came up with some great Smartphones and I am in love with my new Samsung Mesmerize Admittedly, I need to sit down with the user manual, but the coolest feature on it is a microphone so I can speak my texts, and the phone types them for me! Since I sometimes have a bit of trouble with the touch screen (fingernails are problematic) this is a great capability.
Only bad thing about my new phone is that it negates my reason for getting an iPad. (Can you tell I’m a total Apple slut?) I don’t read books electronically and now I need to think of another reason that I really really need the iPad version 2. Must get creative….
My husband’s techno love is his big screen TV. That I don’t care about so much. I rarely bother to go to the basement so I can watch my shows on it. I have been trying to get him to get DVR, which he’s resisting. But since I watch most shows I miss on Hulu, again I have to get creative about why I need it. Sigh. Think!
Are you a techno-phobe or do you love the newest gadgets, too? What’s your can’t-do-without piece of technology?
