Thursday Thirteen: Tech Things I’m Thankful For

Thursday Thirteen

Thursday Thirteen is a weekly meme with a simple theme: each Thursday you blog a list of 13 things. What kind of things? Any kind! Just come up with a list theme and run with it.


Brianna’s List:

  1. Computers. They make life a whole lot easier.
  2. Internet. I love how connected the world is with the internet. If the internet hadn’t come to be what it is today, I wouldn’t have even come to know some of my awesome friends.
  3. iPad. Having the internet available in a portable way is awesome.
  4. Digital Camera. I love being able to taken a bazillion pictures without worrying about wasting film. (And yes, with kids, taking a bazillion pictures is necessary to get ONE good one.)
  5. Mobile apps. There really is an app for everything.
  6. Cell phone. Best invention ever. I feel lost without it.
  7. Credit/debit cards. I hate carrying around cash.
  8. Video chat. So the kids (and I) can see Nana, who lives 1,000+ miles away. And it’s awesome that Nana gets to watch her grandchildren open presents live.
  9. Online shopping. I can do it in my pajamas and I don’t have to deal with the frustration of finding a parking spot during the Christmas shopping mad rush.
  10. YouTube. I love watching tutorials. I’m a visual learner so I need to see how something’s done.
  11. Email. I love the convenience of being able to send a message to someone in a matter of seconds, instead of a matter of days (or weeks, depending on how far away the person is from you) if you were to send a letter via the USPS.
  12. eBooks. I love being able to buy a book and reading it right then and there. Plus there’s the added bonus of having your entire reading library on hand.
  13. Rafflecopter. I praise the day Rafflecopter came into existence and saved me from the headache known as Google Docs/Forms.


J9’s List:

  1. Twitter because I'd be lost without it.
  2. Email because how did people work in olden times?
  3. My cell phone so I can work anywhere.
  4. Caller ID on my cell so I can not answer when I'm not working!
  5. Apps.
  6. Ereader so I can have as many books as I want.
  7. My kindle app so I can sync my books between my phone and Paperwhite so I'm never without my current book.
  8. Flat screen televisions to save on space.
  9. Game consoles (yes, we have them all!).
  10. Wireless printing from laptop and cell phone.
  11. Home networks so I can access my laptop from my desktop and the reverse.
  12. Streaming movies so I never have to pay a rental late fee.
  13. DVR so I never watch a commercial unless it's a sporting event.
