Techie Love

Have you given much thought to the technology that you truly love? Excluding the really obvious stuff like cars, electricity, medical advances, what are the techie things that give you a warm fuzzy feeling when you think of them? Here are mine, in no particular order:
  1. My iPod: I love my iPod. It rides in the car with me. It comes in the house with me. It travels with me. It lulls me to sleep. Its my friend. I love being able to download music instead of buying a whole CD that only has 2 or 3 songs on it that I like. I love being able to access my music in multiple ways through playlists, albums, by artist, etc. It has really expanded my love of music.
  2. PodCasts: I know that I play podcasts on my iPod but I would argue that they are a separate entity from the iPod (and since its my blog, I win the argument!). I get so much enjoyment from the wonderful group of podcasters who share their knowledge, humor and wit with the world through their podcasts.
  3. Blogs: I like these coming and going, meaning that I love to read them and I love to write in mine.
  4. The Internet: Duh! It has expanded, enhanced and enriched my life by opening avenues of discovery that simply were not possible before.
  5. High-speed Internet connections: Life on dial-up sucks!
  6. Digital camera: If you haven't figured it out, I love my digital camera. With film, I would worry about the cost associated with using my camera and didn't fell comfortable experimenting with it. My film camera was mainly a documentation tool used to capture birthdays, holidays, vacations, etc. My digital camera is more like a playground where I take pictures just to see what they look like.
  7. Digital Video Recorder: I didn't expect to like this. I tried it because it came with my cable box. I am so hooked on this. Its so easy to use! I can record things because I'm not going to be home or I'm just not in the mood to watch a show I like. Later, I can watch it and zoom through the commercials. Life is good.
What kind of techie stuff do you have in your world that you love?
