Technology is so ingrained in our everyday life we often take it for granted. Our favorite gadgets are designed to simplify our lives, and they also allow us to stay connected with the world in endless new ways. So as we gather to celebrate Thanksgiving, here are just a few gadgets we’re thankful for.
Our Trusty Computer
Where would we be without our computer? Lost and alone in a dark corner wondering what the capital of Bolivia is. Thankfully, you’re out in the open with a handy search engine! (The answer is Sucre – originally La Plata if you want to get Wikipedia-technical.)
For work, play and everything in-between, it is the modern-day home base. And, as Bill Gates said, “I think it’s fair to say that personal computers have become the most empowering tool we’ve ever created. They’re tools of communication, they’re tools of creativity, and they can be shaped by their user.” Well said, Bill.
A GPS Guide
Getting lost has become a thing of the past, thanks to GPS capabilities built into almost all our mobile devices. From car navigation to smartphone apps, you can easily navigate the world around you and use it as your personal compass to find what you’re looking for. Thanksgiving trips to your roommate’s Grandma’s house now come equipped with driving directions, traffic updates, accident assistance, and a list of gas stations and food stops along the way.
As much as we love our computers, the right accessories can make them even better. Comfort and convenience is key to making the most out of the experience, and the Logitech Wireless All-in-One Keyboard TK820 delivers with streamlined navigation, letting you type, touch and swipe with a single device. With a wireless connection, it clears up your desk space and offers portability, so you don’t have to rely on a laptop touchpad when traveling over the holidays.
To think that we can access our favorite music at a moment’s notice from any location was unthinkable just a few years ago. With a 10-hour battery life and Bluetooth® connectivity for wireless streaming, your personal playlist can accompany you on this year’s seasonal adventure. The UE MINI BOOM combines ease with style – access your personal music library any time, any place and you’ll be humming your way through the holiday.
As we give thanks for friends, family and carbohydrates this Thanksgiving, let’s not forget the technological advances that get us through each day and bring us together.
