My laptop and Internet connection aside, I could care less about technology. I prefer real books to e-books, don't watch TV, and while my phone is touch-screen, I picked it out because it was the only one in the store that wasn't Apple, Android, or Blackberry and also not ugly. I don't own an MP3 player, or anything that plays MP3s.
I think it's sad that we have a wealth of creative and innovate minds, free thinkers, people with vast knowledge and the vision to use it, and instead of curing cancer and ending world hunger, these people work for places like Apple and Microsoft because that's where the money is.
I have to agree with the FP. I like technology, and it comes in very handy, but new stuff comes out so fast that by the time you buy it it's old, and it's just not needed. If I need something, I'll get it. If not, I won't. It's the same with clothing, decor, etc.
I don't rush to get the latest items. I wait til they drop in price and if it suits me and I have room I will get them. as far as phones go, I text more than i talk so as long as I can text, I'm good. I also love my kindle as it allows me to have more things to read than I can store on my bookcase.
But I have a general love for the old things and I tend to resist change unless my hand is "forced".
I'm located somewhere in the middle.
I love technology and how advanced it's becoming at such a rate, yet I don't feel the need to constantly update what I have just because the newer model is slightly faster than the last few.
