OLDEST GADGET

Portable DVD player
The only reason I still use it today (even without the remote...see below) is to justify to myself the $1,400 price tag it came with back in the late 90s which I felt was ok to pay for this thing. Ah, to be young with no responsibilities. 

 

 

 

STRICTLY PERSONAL

BlackBerry
I have access to any Web site at any moment, and I can be reached by phone, text, or e-mail by family members and friends. My wife can also use it for directions since I never ask.

 

 

ENTERTAINMENT

Remote control
The greatest invention is the remote control to the TV/receiver. The convenience it provides is priceless and only realized once the batteries go dead and you actually have to get up to change the channel/volume.

 

 

ON MY DESK

My monitor
It displays a picture of my son to show me everyday what is important and why I come to work.

 

 

STRICTLY BUSINESS

Laptop
Years ago I stopped bringing paper to meetings. All of my daily responsibilities, as well as historical records, e-mails, and documents, are accessible within seconds via my laptop no matter where I am. Being that my handwriting is atrocious and slow, typing information and reading it later is much easier.
