What electronic device could you live without

Updated on May 9, 2012

We live in world in which everyone relies on cell phones, computers, ipads, any electronic gadget you may be able to think of. I grew up in this generation and I don't mind the cool gadgets that are around, however there are times when you think, in the old times people didn't have computers, they didn't have cell phones, they didn't even have mp3 players. We have learned to depend on alot of technology no matter what they are at times.

This question popped into my head, if I could live without one the gadgets that I have now, which happens to ipods, laptop computer and cell phone, which one would it be. Well, I would say laptop but I need it for work and papers, my cell phone as of right now is the only way for me to talk to someone. The one thing that I could live without would be the ipods, they do store alot of music and they are easy to carry but I don't always listen to music through an ipod, believe it or not I still purchase CDs and listen to them when I can. I can also download music through my phone and listen to music that way. Sometimes there is no need for an extra mp3 player when you have a smartphone that can download music.

Now one can say that I am not up to date with all the new gadgets, I don't have a wii, ps3, ipad, nook, e-reader, or even a kindle. I have found that I can live without those because of what I already have. To some this may seem crazy, me not having a wii or ipad, even a kindle because now everywhere I go someone has one of those. I sometimes don't listen to my ipod for a week unless I am bored or just want to add music to it.

In the world we live in now, they are have taught us to depend on technology and the funny thing is that once we learn about the technology we have in front of us, they are coming out with something new, take the cell phones for example. How many times have you purchased the latest cell phone or smartphone to only find out they are coming out with a new one? That happens all the time even with computers and the software they have installed.

So if you could live without an electronic device, what would it be? Was it necessary to buy it in the first place? Are you the type to always want the newest electronic devices that come out?

      I would have to agree with the ipod. There are lots of other places to hear music. Sometimes our power goes out due to an outage nearby and we all nearly go insane without our TV, Computer, etc. I bet time would be so much more relaxed and genuine without all that stuff though.

      That is funny. That seems to be the thing that you can live without for sure.
