What is the one electronic device that you can't live without?

In today's world, it seems as though everyone is attached to one electronic device or another.


Do you have a certain device that you just cannot live without?

How did I forget this thing???

Not quite the same thing but....

Of all of the devices about (except my computer ), I would pick my DVR!!

I love this machine! Last weekend was the first time in over a year, I bet, that we rented a movie---and I only did it then because I had coupons that enabled us to get 3 new releases for $3.00. My son wanted to see the new Jeff Gordon movie, the kids watched Happy Feet and we got a movie.

Time Warner actually updated info. on all of their boxes in 3 counties today. Our cable was out for 1/2 of the day but I am so happy that it didn't erase all of the scheduled programs on the DVR.

I voted for the desktop computer. I was going to put tv, but then I realized you can watch most of the shows on the computer now. Close second would be my DVR. I love that thing!!!

although I hardly ever have it on..I would say the radio..because when the power goes out you can still get updates on hurricanes, etc. over the radio w/batteries...

This was kind of a tough one for me. I'd have to say my TV, because I am addicted to my shows. I am spoiled because of my TIVO.

My computer would have to come ins seconds, I guess.

It was a hard choice for me, too.
I chose my camera, as I always have it with me, it doesn't ring and never needs my urgent attention. LOL

My Computer would be second, too.

I voted Lap Top but it is really a cross between that and cell phone. I like my lap top better because I can answer emails at my convenience and most people can get ahold of me via computer. It fits in my home and my home away from home.
