I never imagined that I’d ever spend so many hours per day on a computer, let alone even own one. During my college years, only the rich kids had their own computers – and my father, but he was a corporate executive. Most of my term papers were typed on a friend’s word processor or at the university computer lab, after I waited in line to get an available terminal. Now, my life is more technical and four laptops are part of our home life. And it’s not just the computers themselves. There are all sorts of devices that go with them: a Blu-Screen Clean computer brush, USB 2.0 flash drives, wireless mice, a wireless Internet detector, and rubber backed mouse pads. I never thought that I’d have so many uses for a computer nor did I think that my desk would be cluttered with all of the things that I need to be technologically advanced. Fortunately, I can shop without ever leaving my house and find information without ever stepping foot into a library. And I can work while I’m in my pajamas parked on my couch. Ah, computers. What would I do without my trusty laptop?
