The right tech

March 9th, 2010 at 11:12 am

This... doesn't have anything to do with frugality unfortunately. Or maybe it sort of does. I'll let you be the judge.

As you guys may or may not know, I love technology. Always have. What makes it interesting though, is that I am also a born-again fruggie. That means there's usually an interesting inner-conflict between my nerdy, gadget side and my sensible, watch the bottom line side.

Most of the time, I do not give into temptation, especially when the technology doesn't seem to justify the cost or doesn't meet my needs.

But there is a fine line in there when I will occasionally indulge in it. That fine line is when something comes along that transcends its base technology, captures the imagination, and brings a whole new level of experience to my digital life.

I think many felt that way with their first iPod, yes? Or how about the humble blog? Would many of you say that the SA blog community has been at least somewhat transformative in your digital life?

Recently, I saw something new that I felt the same way again. This time, it's a rumored device called the Microsoft Courier. It's Microsoft's take on the digital journal. Words are not adequate to describe what it's capable of, so instead, I recommend clicking this link and watching at least one of the videos in the middle of that page.

I could probably go on and on gushing about a device like this, but I would get way too long-winded. Also, I'm not saying I'm actually going to buy this this. Right now, I don't even know if it will see the light of day. I'm just saying that it's great to see something so innovative and refreshing in a gadget landscape full of me-toos and cheap knock-offs.
