Technologic Curiosities

A while back, I saw a video advertising the new Microsoft Courier. A combination of tablet and netbook, the little gadget looked amazing! "I want one of those!!" I remember saying out loud, then proceeded to watch the video another three times. Then I saw an ad for the new iPad Touch... well that looks pretty cool too! It would definitely come in handy for traveling, especially with all the crazy weight restrictions airlines have stated enforcing. So the big question is- which one do I get? (Haha, assuming I could actually afford either one of them!)
I really like the IDEA of the courier. I like the functionality, of being able to use it like a tablet- draw, make notes, create, etc. And I like that it serves as a planner as well. My hesitation is of course would I actually use it? I can't count how many times I've said "Alright. This month I'm going to start using my planner, and stick with it!" Armed with renewed motivation, I keep it up for about a month- before becoming distracted with another self-improving project. However, since I have decided to turn my hobby into a business- the gadget could prove to be very useful. Maybe not so much now, but in the future, when my business is THRIVING!
Then there's the iPad Touch. I like this because I can pretend it's the apple mactop that I dream of owning but cannot afford. Also, because of it's slim design and light weight, it's very portable friendly. It's also compatable with the apps I already own for my iPhone, and I can easily watch videos on it while I'm traveling. Or stay up to date on my favorite blogs. Or read books! The possibilies are quite endless.

It's a very tricky decision. Either way- my biggest worry is how long it would take me to break it. Or rather, how quickly. Anyone who's met me knows I have a reputation for repelling technology. Seriously. My laptops for example- if I don't spill something on it first, then the laptop will leap from hands just to get away from me. Like committing technological suicide. It makes me sad a little.

So what one would you choose? ♥, jenn
