~ Frank Lloyd Wright
Isn't that a profound observation from so long ago?
We are surely moving swiftly toward becoming a race of chip-implanted, push-button fingered, agile thumb slaves to our technology.
I do not have a smartphone. I have a dumbphone. It takes me ten minutes at a time to text someone, not only because I have to have complete sentences and punctuation, but because my Captain Kirk flip phone only has numbers so for each letter it requires multiple key strokes. That and my fingers are just too beefy for those buttons.
I have not succumbed to i-anythings. I like the idea of the iPad but just see it as an extension of my already overloaded and overburdened mind. My kids do have iPods and I borrow one from time to time (I do have the Square app, and I love that) to take silly pictures with Instagram or try my luck at the first level of Angry Birds (I just don't get the appeal - but Bookworm I love!).
My seemingly centuries old HP desktop is really toasting my buns. It has crashed several times in the past year and I hate the XP operating system on it. It is just a beast. Plus I have about 3,456,221 pictures on it, and that seems to be taking up too much room. I will also be looking into some sort of off site back up storage personal fluffy cloud system before too long. I am lucky that I work with a gifted IT guy who knows my penchant for opening up 25 browser windows at one time and running multiple memory sucking programs at once.
Today, I have finally saved up enough money from the sale of my 'simple truths' to walk into Best Buy armed with multiple gift cerficates through the SCRIP fundraising program for our school and buy my very first laptop.
So in honor of this momentous occassion (calloo-callay!) I put together a little treasury of things that I now have my eye on to accessorize this special purchase. I have a feeling that accessorizing my new baby will become a full-on obsession.
In honor of buying my very first laptop today, I found some awesome accessories that I know I will not be able to live without!
