What’s Your Favorite New Gadget?

Posted by on Jan 12, 2010 in Uncategorized

kindle2_front1OK, this post is sort of borne of several thoughts that jumbled together all at once this morning: 1) that our assistant editor, Jenna, said something the other day about needing some audio books to keep her entertained on her long rides back to Las Cruces; 2) that I have a Kindle, and have enjoyed it more than I ever thought I would (though still remain a fan of paper books, and always will, but I admit that there’s something cool about reading entire books on the tablet and even via my iPhone; 3) (and most randomly) there’s also a new e-reader is called “Lexi,” which just struck me as a sort of weird name. But I, of course, am biased on the subject.`

All of which made me think about gadgets of the future, and exciting technology, and what sorts of gadgets you’re more excited about. Besides, at the start of a new decade, it’s natural to envision what tomorrow’s Brave New World could have in store, right?

So what do you think: is there anything out there that’s particularly intriguing to you? Are you smitten with any gadget right now?

    Though it may not even turn out to exist, Apple’s rumored tablet device could be an amazing technological development:

    Haven’t tried an Amazon Kindle or B&N Nook yet, but the Skiff Reader appears to use a higher-calibre display system. Plus, it’s all bendy.

    The Palm Pre is faster and more practical than a creaky little i-phone. Works on better, less expensive wireless carriers, too.

    I’m not sure about Google’s/HTC’s Nexus One, but it’s got potential.

    I’m excited to see Apple’s Tablet whenever it makes an appearance, but for now, it’s the iPhone all the way. (Gee, I bet that’s a real surprise to those who know me.)

    This isn’t really new technology, but it’s new to me — satellite radio.
    I got hooked on this by a rental car during a recent trip to Las Vegas. Generally speaking, I’m not thrilled with the quality of Albuquerque radio (though there are a few exceptions), so I bought a satellite radio for my home.
    I love it!
