We definitely live in the age of electronics. Most of us, of course, love our computers. But side from your laptop or PC, which gadget do you find most useful? I miss my cell phone, as I gave it up to save money. I enjoy my portable DVD player. Share your most useful gadgets with us : ) Karen

Another digital camera is on my wish list first, and then someday, and Ipod. I'd also like and iPhone or a Blackberry. Electronics really broadens ones opportunities to enjoy many things.

In my gadgets list, I rate computers at the top. Then, comes my cell phone.. Its difficult for me to survive without a phone. And these days, I find it more useful than even computer. When I happen to forget to carry my cell with me, its like I am lost somewhere and have no contact what-so-ever with anyone. God, its becomes really horrible. Lol Apart from phone, I love my PS3!!

Cell phones...leaving it behind feels like you've left your right arm behind these days. It was the cutest thing. I have an tiny little 87 year old neighbor, and she was walking back and forth to the laundry room yesterday, chatting away on her cell phone! So many of the elderly seem to love technology too. Love that. Karen

I would guess my microwave oven is the one I use most. It has became such a blessing in our over active, busy world. I warm everything in it and cook all me veggies there.

We use the microwave daily, so I have to agree. It ranks right up there on my list of "gadgets." For reheating food, cooking veggies, making popcorn and hot drinks, it just can't be beat. Karen

I definitely would miss 3 things, my mobile phone, my ipod, and my camera. The main two are my mobile and my ipod though, because when i'm not on the phone.. i'm listening to music.

I agree. Cell phones are amazing tools, but can get very expensive. My next one, at least for now, will have only basics...and NO two-year contract. Like you, I believe music is one of the best things in life : ) Karen

Hi, Other than the computer, the most useful electronic gadget to me is portable music player and mobile phone. A music player can store music and act as a pendrive as well for transferring files from one source to another. Don't you feel inconvenient without a cellphone as it seems to be a daily necessity for everyone.

Yes, it is wonderful to take our favorite music wherever we go. And you're right. Most of us now consider a cell a necessity. So many wonderful gadgets in today's world. : )

Aside from my computer, it has to be my cellphone. When i was away from home, i relied too much on my cellphone to log on to myLot. I have received two payout because of it. Without it, i don't know how i can earn. It basically has everything i need. Camera, internet, call and text, notepad and many more. It's like i'm bringing along a computer, only smaller.

The newest cell phones are great! Like an office, a computer, a source of music. Many things all rolled into one small phone. Amazing!

My cellphone...the first time I had a cellphone was almost 5 years ago, when I was a student and now that I am working, I just can't live without it. Aside from the call and text features, cellphone's games are very helpful to me for past time. This keeps me from getting bored especially now that I am the only one left in the department since I have a different schedule from my friends.

Cell phones are wonderful. Almost everyone I know has one now and say they wouldn't know what to do without it. I am glad you've found so many good uses for yours. : )
