I don’t own anything technological that other people would think of as ‘cool’! Everything of mine is old and ‘untrendy’!
The newest and ‘coolest’ thing I own is my computer which I saved for two years to buy in April 2008. Knowing it would have to last me for eight or ten years, I bought one that was brand new, very expensive, and had advanced features. It’s a desk top as I decided against a buying a laptop (they were more expensive for less memory and ram) and I’m the sort of person that if I had access to the internet that travelled around with me, I’d be on it all the time! I like to turn my computer off, forget about it for a while and go and do other things.
The piece of technology I love and use most often is my mp3 player. The one I’m using at the moment is a little five year old 256mb mp3 player that can hold about 90 songs. My sister bought me a new 4GB mp4 player for Christmas last year but I had nothing but trouble with it and couldn’t get it to work properly! In September I realised that because the new one was a problem I had never actually stopped using my little mp3 player. I decided once and for all to give up on the mp4 player and just stick to my old faithful!
Other things I own and find useful are my Ion record player that converts vinyl to mp3’s, my voice recorder that I use when I want to interview people for the tenants association or the village magazine, and my memory stick that is useful when I have to take work into college.
I may not have the coolest or the latest gadget but I have fun using the ones I own.
