When did I become one of those people who has a bunch of tech toys?
I got a car my senior year, and with it a cell phone to prevent me from becoming too terribly lost, and ending up driving to Australia. (I have an impressively warped sense of direction, and go wrong far more than you’d expect from random chance.)
Like a lot of college students, I added a laptop for schoolwork. Having to use a lab computer is not fun.
And then I just had to have a Kindle DX, for all the eBooks out there. Then I upgraded to a Kindle Touch several years later.
Recently I got a tablet (because it was free, and, you know… shiny.) Right now I don’t use it much, but I’ve decided that I’ll give it a shot as a laptop substitute while I’m traveling. I was contemplating this stack of electronics, and I don’t quite know how it happened.
But I can read an eBook on all of them!
