My husband calls me a gadget queen, basically because of the kitchen gadgets I have. But over the past few years that has also included the technical gadgets I prefer to use, i.e. Blackberry, iPod, Kindle, etc.
The irony is he is the software computer genius. But he has no desire for the latest and greatest. Maybe it reminds him too much of work.
But remember when just having a computer - a huge, honking PC - was the latest? Then we went real new age and got a scanner (gasp!). The idea of document scanning at all, let alone in the home was impressive.
We've come a long way baby.
