This year was a great year for gadgets.
The first gadget I bought was not for me but for my wife. We bought an Acer netbook, she loves it. I took it with me to the opening night of NECC2009, but I felt like it was too dificult to type on. I did like the netbook enough to buy my daughter one for her 12th birthday.
The second gadget was a Flip camera. I got this for work. I like having it handy to catch some footage of the great things teachers and students are doing in the classroom.
Gadget number 3: The Kindle. I LOVE my Kindle. If you would have told me last year that I would be doing the majority of my reading on a digital e-book I would have called you crazy.
My fourth and final gadget is the Motorola Droid. I just got the Droid and I really do like it. I replaced my perfectly functioning Blackberry for the Droid and so far I do not regret the decision.
With all of these new gadgets I really do feel like the "digital nerd" my daughter calls me. But you know what? I don't care! I like my gadgets and I really do believe they will make me more productive in 2010. If not they will definitely help to keep me distracted from the things I should really be doing.
