It seems the more technology advances, the more we become dependent on it. I am no exception. Just the other day I was thinking, “If I was about to lose everything (not people but tangible goods) and could only save five things, what would they be”? Well, here is the list I came up with.
Macbook – Without my computer I would not be able to make a living, this would be the first thing I would grab. It has most of my information and software I use on a daily basis.
Smart Phone (Centro) – We live in a world where it’s important to always be connected. On days I leave my phone at home, I feel naked and lost all day. Once you get a smart phone you never want to go back to a normal one. If you haven’t made the plunge yet, don’t. It’s like a drug; you just keep checking your email and twitter every second of the day.
Wii – I would grab this because sometimes you just need to unwind from a rough day and play some Mario Galaxy. I don’t know if I would want to live in a world without Mario.
Sirius Radio – Terrestrial radio sucks compared to satellite radio. Sirius actually plays new music and there is a station dedicated to indie/college rock. Even the News/Sports talk radio is better. My radio was out of commission for a few weeks and I was losing my mind listening to the local stations. I need my Sirius.
Dodge Neon – Okay, before you make fun of me about my car I would just like to say that they were the only dealership in Pittsburgh that would sell me a car. It’s not the car I want, but it was the only thing I could get at the time. The reason I would take it is because without it everything would be more difficult. My car is the largest piece of technology I own.
Feel free to share some of technology you couldn’t live without and the reasons why. I am really interested in what in people say.
