There’s a bunch of popular gadgets that everybody’s making a fuss about which I don’t own and do not believe I ever will: a Kindle, Nook, iPad, iPod, iPhone, Bluetooth, any other Smart Phone, apps of any kind.
Why not? Just don’t see the need for them, and don’t want to own more stuff. They take time to learn, and every electronic gizmo eventually is going to have problems, another headache I don’t need.
I DO own a GPS because I have no sense of direction. And I own a laptop because I travel and give talks requiring PowerPoint.
My colleagues and friends are trying to convince me that I need an iPad. They demonstrate all it can do. None of it I need. Seems like a toy to me.
They also want me to get a Kindle. I’d rather hold and read a physical book. I have no need to carry my whole library with me when I travel.
My kids love their iPods. Again, I don’t need to carry 900 songs with me.
Do you own these things? Why?
