I have a Windows 8 desktiop, a Windows 8 laptop, a Windows RT tablet, an Android tablet, an iPad, a Windows 7 netbook, a Windows 8 Phone, an Android phone, an iPhone and an iPod. It still is not enough so I know how you feel! :-)
So long as agricultural subsidies exist in the U.S., the taxes that you pay are being wasted.
I had a bass guitar. It had five strings. I needed one with four strings, and got a fretless. Then I needed one signed by Billy Sheehan. Then I needed one with active electronics. Then I needed one with 6 strings. Then I needed one with 8 strings. Then I needed one that happened to be very rare. Then I needed one that happened to be somewhat rare. Then someone gave me one that was in pieces. Then I needed one that was kinda rare and in desperate need of help. It's called Gear Acquisition Syndrome, or GAS, and the only known cure is sharing finances with someone who does not share your enthusiasm for whatever gear you're acquiring. You should thank Missy for being such a stick in the mud. She must love you very much to not put up with your GAS.
Wait, does that mean Marty Feldman would have been the object of tech envy? That just doesn't seem right!
If anything you own begins with "i-," you have too much money (well, not for long/any more).

Proof that, if you have an agenda, any topic can be made to fit it.
This is every conversation my wife and I have about our finances except I am Missy and she is Scott. Our definitions for the word "need" are quite different.
Pleased to see plenty of comments from those who use some or all of iOS, Android, Windows. The haters can step off.
You know that saying about it being easier to ask forgiveness, than to ask permission? Yeah, it doesn't work so well in marriages.
I'm sending this to my husband IMMEDIATELY! I will say that at least my hubby (who requires a new computer every 18 months) gives me his hand-me-downs.
Nope, the screen-in-the-eyeballs is still one step too far out. It'll end once they get a chip in your brain that bypasses the optic nerve completely - both the most convincing and most nonexistent screen possible.
I have a smart phone, a laptop, and a desktop PC. I use the desktop PC for everything, even phone calls.
I use my laptop for everything. I didn't believe I needed a smartphone, I just had to have the last Nokia manufactured before Microsoft took over, and now it's become the best accessory for my laptop. I don't even need a scanner because the camera's picture quality is better than any scanner available. Now I just need a full-page printer that can slide into my laptop bag.
