I have a tendency to hang onto technology way past the point others move on. Take my Kindle Fire, for instance. It still serves me well as an e-reader, web browser, and gaming device. And since I don’t want the ever-connectedness others endure with their smart phones, that Kindle is not going away anytime soon.
However, it almost did. Out and about the other day I left my Kindle behind at a bar. Going right back to the place after a quick confirming phone call, I decided to get it right away instead of waiting until the next day.
The bartender who waited on my partner and me fetched my device from the manager’s office. She had to tease upon handing it over.
“We all wondered how anyone could lose something so big.”
Oh, well. In some circles that would be a compliment. ~wink~ At least I have my toy back. And I moved on from the sixties, unlike some people.

Do you hold onto old technology or are you more the sort to shell out for the leading (aka cash ‘bleeding’) edge?
