In this modern times people have their own gadgets . It could be their tablets , Ipads , Ipod , netbook , powerbank , laptop and computer . For myself , i have a casing for my smartphone so when it falls down it won't be shattered or scratched . For my netbook , i have this e-cooler , where i put it on so it won't heat up much as i have attached a picture of it here . I suppose you have your ways of taking care of your gadgets .

@SIMPLYD I need a new one as well. On the plus side they do what they are supposed to. That, and they don't cost too much to replace.

I bathe my computer in water once every year (agreed, I leave aside the Hard Disk and the DVD ROM). And then leave it in the sun to dry off for about 4-5 hours.

@SIMPLYD Yes. Once a year. Mostly a day before we celebrate Vishwakarma Pooja here in India. This is a holy day when we pray to Lord Vishwakarma who is believed to be the Engineer God who Engineered the Universe.

@SIMPLYD It is the most important point we have to remember, taking care of our gadgets before they are spoiled. But most of the time we neglect to care at the right moment and start scratching our head when the damage is already done. I clearly say that you are a good caretaker. Keep it up .

@SIMPLYD I am also like you. But when brother take the gadget to use by the end of the day it will have a scratch, poor guy tries very hard to keep it fine still he fails in this aspect right from childhood. I don't know how to express this, should I scold him for damaging the piece or should I feel bad about this luck.

I have a nicely cushioned bag to carry mine in. When something is not working properly, I find a tech to fix it.

Yes, that's one way indeed , carrying them in a cushioned bag . Should it fall rhe cushion will mitigate the impact .

The only "gadget" I have is the smartphone - and basically I have it in my little wallet thing and then I shove it all in my purse - ha ha. I also have a digital camera I carry with me (I don't like the smartphone camera), so I shove that in my purse as well. I've already dropped the purse and the gadgets but miraculously they still survive!

@SIMPLYD Yes, I also take care of my gadgets. I have screen protector for my smartphone even though it has a corning gorilla glass protection. But I don't have a cooling pad for my laptop, and I planning to buy one.

That one in the picture , i bought that from Lazada for only about 490 pesos including the freight charge . It's nice to use while you are propped up in bed . What is "corning gorilla glass protection" ? I am ignorant of that .

All I have is this little chromebook. It is fine for me and I need do nothing more than be careful with it and wipe it down with electro static cleaner every now and again.

Just a cheap case I bought on Amazon. But I almost never use my smartphone when walking or when my hands are busy with something else, so the chance of falling are very low.

Yes, you can order one like that from Lazada . It's only less than 500 pesos inclusive of the freight charge . But at Lazada if you order more than 1000 pesos , the freight charge is free,

It is good to hear that you keep your gadgets safely and you take due care of all your gadgets. I keep my smart phone in a cover so as to protect it. I know it is a delicate object and without a leather cover, it could get damaged. My laptop also remains in a bag, when not in use.

I have an Otter Box case on my iPhone, and I am glad that i do, as it has fallen on the floor a few times, but nothing has happened to it, thank goodness. I have a case on my ipad minit too, which folds up like a portfolio. It has fallen a few times too, and nothing has happened to it either.

All my gadgets are Apple. I love my Apple gadgets. I always take care of my iPhone, I always make sure I buy the right case for it when I get a new one. My Mac is always on my desk and I clean it from time to time. And my iPad sits next to my Mac on my desk. I love my gadgets.

Im planning to buy my own cooler fan for my laptop but I've been busy with other things lately. Not to mention I got a fan as a substitute for a cooler, because the previous one doesn't work as much specially during a hot afternoon. nice laptop by the way, what brand is that?

He llo ! Good to see you here again . I bought this online from Lazada . It costs only less than 500 pesos . But having an electric fan steadily fanning your computer is much okay , i think.
