It has been brought to my attention that I am a Level 5 geek. With all due respect to the fact that I have actually used the phrase "space/time continuum" and that I have an affinity for movies with superheroes in them, I'm pretty sure that it isn't so much geekdom as it is that I can get really, really enamoured with technology.
My current favorite is my personal media player. Not only do I have ALL my favorite pieces of music with me ALL the time, but I can also listen to the radio or watch videos. The unexpectedly cool thing is that it will store photos. I've never been one to keep one of those plastic things with pictures in my purse, but having them digitally is awesome. I just learned this week that I can record audio with it too. So now I've made .wav files of things I want to learn. I figure if I recite the information over and over to myself via recording eventually it will become a permanent part of my mental database. Not only that, but the library in my town offers downloads of audible books, making this by far the best $60 I've spent in a long, long time.
How did I get a personal media player for a mere 60 bucks? Why woot.com of course. I check it every day.
Okay, so maybe I am a Level 5 geek.
