I need to make a statement. I am not a PC/Windows guy. I am not Mac guy. I am not even a Linux or Android guy. I am a TECHNOLOGY guy. I love technology and gadgets. It doesn’t matter if it’s Windows, OS X or Ubuntu, I get excited about it. Apple is my preference for my primary computer but I’m excited about Windows 8, Windows-based tablets and ultra books. I use an iPad but I also drooled over the Asus Transformer Prime.
That said, when I buy my “toys” as my wife affectionately refers to them, I generally buy what works best for me and fits my workflow. What works for me might not be the most popular or the hot item on the market now. Even when I recommend technology to family and friends, I do a little extra investigating so that I recommend the proper technology that is appropriate for their needs and their budgets. People can easily miss out of great technology by aligning themselves with one particular brand/product/technology. Don’t get me wrong, there is nothing wrong with brand loyalty (until a couple of years ago, all our TVs, VCRs, DVD players, etc. were Sony because I would not settle for anything less), but blind loyalty can cause you to miss out on some great gadgets available on the market.
It’s all about embracing technology that fits your digital lifestyle.
