Your Tiny Home Away From Home

October 20, 2010

appliances, business

Oh my word. I was researching PDA gadgets recently, and lookie what I found!

It’s an HP mini-mini computer! I love it!

The hardest part about being a technology researcher and writer is seeing ALL these delicious gadgets. I DO SO want to try them out! I love this thing!

It’s a PDA, or Personal Digital Assistant. Kind of like a mini “home away from home” gadget. I like those. I am joined at the hip to the Internet (it’s my career). When I travel or am away from the computer, I have to be able to check in on my email and assignments. I have my iPod (which I adore), and I can connect to wireless hotspots, where available. I have no desire to find a replacement for my iPod just yet. I’m very happy with it. But I think eventually I will upgrade to something more. The iPaq is nice because it’s Windows-based (has Windows Mail, Windows Mobile Office Outlook, MSN Messenger, etc). And it takes an SD card for adding more memory (something the iPod seriously lacks). If I ever want to upgrade to something like an iPaq, I can give my iPod away to one of the kids (oh wouldn’t they love that! They love my iPod!) and get an iPaq and claim in for my business. That’s the nice thing about being self-employed– you can get gadgets and claim them for the business. šŸ˜€ Tax deductible. šŸ˜€

Buy.com has the best price I’ve seen on these babies– under $400. That’s still a very very pretty penny. Not in my immediate future, that’s for sure. But it’s nice to know that there’s something out there waiting for me. šŸ˜‰ See more deals at Buy.com.

    That does look like a great little gadget. But I don’t think I want to be that attached to my computer that badly. Also I sure don’t that the money for that with all these animals to feed. But go for it. Have a fantastic day.

    Let me tell you, I recently upgraded my phone to a Droid which has all the fun PDA features and I’m in LOVE. I don’t know how I lived without it.

    It was funny, one day I was sitting at home and it started to ring and I was almost confused. You mean I can take CALLS on this thing too? Incredible!

    So clearly, I use it more for the other fun stuff than for an actual phone šŸ™‚

    Here’s to hoping your PDA dreams come true soon!
