Air conditioning hands down

I'm going to go with the hot water heater. Without it, I'd be a total BITCH in the mornings. Eh, maybe all day. Yeah. All day.

Holy crap, how old are you people?

Harry said...

TRS80 anyone?

Rusty Broome said...

It's not that I'm old, it's that I fing hate being hot. I couldn't enjoy my laptop and Al Gore Internet if i was sweating bullets cause of no AC.

Marcel says the T1-82. But that's because he just figured out that 58008 upside-down is "boobs."
Man, I love Brazilians.

From a purely selfish standpoint, the iPod. All the music I own, anywhere I want to listen to it, anytime.

RICK said...

I meant TI.

That Ross Perot is something else.

I had a TI-30. Was kinda magical in its own nerdy way. Plus there was the 71077345 thing that passed for cool. Then along came Matell Electronics Football. Now those blips were cool!

But the most important invention of my life, at the time, was the life-changing VCR. Saturday Night Live on Sunday evening? Way.

Balser for the win.

About 90% of my body wants to say the iPhone. But I will dig deeper.

If I may nerd out for a minute, I'm going with firmware. It's part of what makes the iPhone so cool to me, even when the new one came out, if you updated the firmware on your original it was like you had a completely different phone anyway!

Firmware also responsible for new and better reviews of the PS3. Sony continues to develop the firmware, and now the machine you got that was just bleh, is getting better and better with every update.

HOOZAH!

And if not being a dork, let's say cell phones.
