Some people think it's "nuts" to be as interested in and pleased by gadgets as I am. But for frig's sake, it's just a hobby.
And I'm nowhere near the cutting edge, look at this.
"Mr. Libin, chief executive of Evernote Corp., a start-up that makes list-keeping software, carries around a backpack that weighs 26.2 pounds. Speaking of lists, the backpack contains: a 17-inch notebook computer, an iPad tablet, a Samsung tablet, two phones, an SLR camera, two lenses for the SLR, a headset for making Skype calls, an in-ear phone headset, a wi-fi router..." (it goes on)
Me, I carry three or four gadgets (or often just my iPhone, it can do most of it after all). Of course I own rather more than that, but the thing is simply that I like them, they are fun for me. I've noticed that for many people they are scary, they are intimidated by gadgets. So I can see there is a cognitive break there.
I am aware that most people don't have strong interests. For them, their work five days a week, TV in the evening, and sleeping late in the weekends is enough. But some people need more. So they have hobbies. One guy likes gadgets. Another has ten aquariums. One has $70,000 worth of hi-fi gear. One likes climbing mountains, the steeper the better. One collects rare butterflies. One builds ship models.
