Running on E
They're fascinating little devices-- filled with information, books, newspapers, magazines and video.
Yet, I don't have one and I have no burning desire to get one. I tried to figure out why. Then, it came to me.
I'm suffering from "tech fatigue." I have too many appliances, cords, adapters, cables, chargers, addresses, numbers, passwords, accounts...
I wish someone wound invent one machine that does it all. It appears the smart phone comes the closest. I used to have one. I found it too big to be truly portable and too small to be really useful. I abandoned it in favor of my old flip phone.
An e-reader is in my future. I'll be buying one sooner rather than later. The prices have come down, and more content is available than ever before. I read way too much to be without one.
Still, I can do without the added clutter.
