Need More Input (devices) with Xara X. Xanakas

October 10, 2015

I am a gadget girl. I crave handheld devices the way I crave Torchy’s Tacos. If it runs on batteries, I’m all over it. I can’t wait to play with it.

That… doesn’t sound quite right.

You know what I’m talking about. Electronics. Tablets, laptops, smartphones, Kindles. Those little lifesavers that connect us to each other. Electronic leashes that tether us to the world. Devices that let us fly away and bring us home.

I’ve always had to have gadgets for my gadgets. Step into the Wayback Machine with me: I had a keyboard and an external GPS device for my Dell Axim. I had to get a carrying case to carry all the pieces with it, in addition to the carrying case for the Axim itself. Which I carried next to my Motorola PageWriter 2000 (a two way pager with a keyboard? Sign me up!!!)

Keyboards have been my bluetooth drug of choice. I just can’t seem to let a device sit well enough without adding an external keyboard for it. Well, my first Kindle was an exception, but it had its own physical keyboard. Sine I fancy myself a writer (sometimes), I just have this compulsion to carry a keyboard along with my devices.

Someone at work called my iPad Mini plus Folio case the ‘cutest little computer’. Well, I guess it kind of counts as one. And ultraportable. The Zagg keyboard cover on my iPad makes it far more usable for writing than smacking away on the screen. And keeps the fingerprints down.

Right now, I carry two different keyboards for my Samsung tablet: one silicon (waterproof, but the keys are pretty small), and one that folds in half (full size keys in the right places). I even ordered a full-size wireless silicon keyboard for my desktop. (what can I say? I’m addicted.) It takes up almost no space on the desk and works like a champ.

How bout you? What feeds your electronic fetish? Or is it just me?
