The nutshell version is this - If you were to give six roses to things that are a part of _______, which ones would you choose. The first post were things in my kitchen I would offer roses.
So, what part of my technology world would I want to give a rose?
1. Macbook - I don't know how I lived without it and I will not return to the other side again. I am not sure what I was afraid of but the learning curve is so small, and well worth it.
2. iPhone - A lot of smart phones have flooded the market since I got my first iphone four years ago. I am sure that there are many out on the market now just as capable as my iPhone, but I really don't like change and this phone makes life so simple.
3. Camera - I have a Canon Rebel xsi, that I received as a Christmas gift a few years ago. It is rare that I long for something that costs this much but I have definitely experienced great joy shooting pictures with it. The kids claim that I tuck it in every night before I go to bed. They exaggerate.
4. Universal Charger - In our house not only do the fairies come in at night and steal socks, so that I always have a basket of spares with no mates, but they also take all of our iphone, ipad, and kindle charging cords. It is for this reason that I love our universal charger that resides on the hall table. Evidently it is too big to fit inside of the fairies backpack.
5. Roku/Netflix - This small box is a wonder. We stream video, Pandora music, CNN News for Kids, and much more with our Roku, and it only cost $30.
6. Kindle - I have been a book lover since I could understand what a book was. I gave up on the printed word with much resistance as I hate change (see # 1 and 2) and I thought that eReaders were the stupidest thing when I first learned of them. I am a recovered eReader hater and now love that I can carry 104 books in my purse with this handy little device. The best part about an eReader is that I can find a book online, buy it and be reading in less than five minutes. When you live where I do and the closest store with a book is a 30 minute drive, this is heaven.
So, what technology would like to give a rose to?
