Tech Friends

Last month, I bought an Amazon Echo. So far, I’ve used it as a speaker to play music and a timer when I’m cooking. I’ve also asked “Alexa” for the definition of contronym, the current outside temperature and for info on Stephan James, the Canadian actor in Homecoming (my top TV series of the year). As much as I love technology, I’m not sure it would make my gratitude list. What are your favorite-gadgets?

    My instant read meat thermometer and my old fashioned navigational device by Garmin in my car.

    No electronic device instills thoughts of gratitude in me–no computer, tablet, or smartphone. In fact, one of my 2019 resolutions will be to become less screen-dependent and more low-tech. That said, I do like my bike computer.

    The piece of electronica that calculates your pace, your distance, odometer, etc.Nice to know how far I’ve gone! I don’t like using the phone+app, because the battery gets drained when I’m on a long ride (I am a very slow cyclists, but have worked up to the occasional 50+ mile ride).
