Thanksgiving is less than a week away, and for those who celebrate this holiday, things are probably getting quite hectic at this point. For those who do not really give a darn about Thanksgiving, why not take the time to reflect and think about what you have to be thankful for?
I actually got the idea from Matt Blum over at Geek Dad, who came up with a list of 10 Geeky Things To Be Thankful For. It inspired me to create my own list – albeit a shorter one, with a couple of items similar to his. Here goes.
1. Online shopping. It’s not just for geeks, but those of us who love to buy gadgets and other geeky stuff (TOYS!) can do so without having to leave the comforts of home. We can find practically anything and everything that we want at a few clicks of the mouse.
2. Easy access to the Internet. Connectivity is the word. I still remember having to go to Internet shops about 10 years ago. Slow connections, sucky computers – that’s what we had to put up with. Today, I can go online anywhere and everywhere, thanks to wireless networks!
3. Gadgets are so much cheaper. I have always been a sucker for electronics, but I never thought that I would be able to afford a lot of things that I have now. From gigantic (storage space wise) hard drives to mp3 players to cameras – practically anyone can afford any gadget these days.
What’s on your geeky Thanksgiving list?
