Home PC and Laptop, that's it. I don't really care for smart phones.

Carol, I so frustrate my co-workers because when I am out at events or on the Hope Bus, my phone is turned off. Nothing annoys me more than when we are in a staff meeting and 5 of my 6 co-workers are reading texts & email. Rude.

I'm the only one at home who uses the internet and am retired. My one desktop is sufficient for all my connection wants and needs and I do check it several times/day. I have a dumb phone for necessary calls, but spend very little time on it - I will NOT use it while driving and when out am usually doing something and have no desire to stop and chat.

I have a desktop PC at home, which is close to 10 years old, but my favorite. Also part of my "tech world" are a laptop & an iPad. The iPad is my Hope Bus tablet, though I own it, not the Foundation. I don't use those as much since my smartphone provides my mob ile hotspot, and since we share it, we try to keep costs down. I do use my smartphone for texting and FB.

Unless I am working, Sundays are declared no technology days. The only exception are my TV & DVR/DVD player, since we do watch movies.

I have a laptop, a desktop PC (which I can't use because my desk is so full I can't get to it!), a tablet and a smartphone. I have 2 Kindles (Keyboard & Paperwhite) which have wifi but they aren't really built for surfing the net, but I do use them to browse books on amazon.com

Just my desk top computer, and that is enough for me. It's used daily.

I have a cell phone, but it's just a basic phone, I only use for calls, and I don't do texts. I have just never felt the need to be connected to the internet away from home.

I have a Kindle, but since I do not have WiFi, I download my books to it from my computer using the USB cable that came with my Kindle. A friend set up some short cuts for me on my desk top making quick and easy.


My name is Shari; I have been a Sparker since July 2006, I am now in hospice care for metastatic breast cancer, but I'm not letting cancer stop me from Sparking!

Promise me you'll always remember: You're braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.
