Gadgets

I love technology as well as the latest and greatest gadgets. I used to be able to keep up with all the new things. Now, I'm lucky to keep up with the current version of the software I have installed on my computer.

[screen dissolves to a dreamy view]

I remember getting excited when the new dot-matrix printers would come out that doubled the number of characters per second that they could print - 10 cps, 20 cps, and a whopping 100 cps! I thought I'd died and gone to heaven when I bought a printer that could do bi-directional printing. Printing something in color with those early printers, meant that you needed to change the ribbon with a different color and feed the paper back through the tractor feed, and print again.

Ha, ha, ha. Oh well, now printers can scan, fax, copy, and staple... oh yeah, they can even print! I'm sure if you looked hard enough, you could find one to do the dishes as well.

Now, my calculator can connect to my computer and download apps. I can set the time or load the phonebook on my watch by pointing it to the monitor. I can even control all the lights in the house with my remote control. I'm a Gadget Geek!

I seemed to have fallen behind in my quest for gadgets though. I still don't have a PDA, or even a laptop, but they are on my wish list. It's hard to keep up with current technology, as it changes every second. In a few years, everything I own will most likely be obsolete or won't be compatible with the newly purchased gadget. Since I love most of the new innovations, I wouldn't want it any other way.
