Poll of the night! Technology you can't live without!

Every time I see Hazel trying to download a pic thread, or dog forbid, a podcast , I'm very glad to have high speed... And I don't think I could go back to dial up either...

So what technologies can't you live without?

(poll coming)

I wrote "high speed" but that would include the computer, I take it??? Otherwise guess it wouldn't do me much good.

lol I was wondering. "How?" It was multichoice, so you could have picked both, but ok... yeah... I guess every vote for high speed is a vote for computer but not vice versa.

Land line, cell phone, computer, hi-speed and mp3.

Unless I'm on holidays and then I don't want any of them .

hehe..

I don't have a cell phone... And I don't plan on getting one. I'm the only person in the world, I think- or maybe one of two, without a cell phone. I'm not so important that you need to reach me this minute. Leave a message.

Me too ! Acually , I bought one 4 years ago when I moved here, it was cheaper than using the home phone (always long distance , cha ching) but then I moved again and even using the cell phone was long distance so it's in a drawyer somewhere....no dishwasher, and I have a microwave but only because my mom bought me a used one, probably built in 1970...

Oh there is so much I would not want to live without. I don't have a landline, so I guess my cell phone would be number one for both communication and safety, then of course this lovely mac and highspeed! And then comes the ipod for all the walking and bus riding I do to and from work. Whoa, that makes me sound greedy. At least I don't own a television.

I voted shortwave radio, dialup internet, black and white tv... lol
Living where I do its pretty much all I can get
Actually though on a serious note, its my satellite radio, I cant go back to crappy Q92 and EZ Rock on a daily basis.
I can handle dial up for now... ( but even that is wearing thin) I guess its because IMO, dinosaur dialup is better than nothing and I have never had the luxury of highspeed here. lol

I picked cell phone, computer and high speed internet. If the day ever comes that I have to go back to dial-up

The only one I ticked off was "land line" and I'm dubious about that even though I live in the country.

I don't get the shakes when I go on holidays and I leave my office high speed internet behind . . . . . and I have dial-up at home that's excessively slow because its rural.

A piece of technology I couldn't live without would be a vehicle. I couldn't imagine hitching up the horses and the buggy for the 35 km commute in the morning.

The common camera is a piece of technology I'd rather keep.

Dishwasher's are your friends, as are the dryer and washer for clothes.
