Gadgets Galore - Conspiracy Theory?


Above are my a few of my  most beloved Gadgets...

 Five In One Card reader that I had to buy because HP only put 2 sizes slots for memory cards               (Conspiracy? do they own the card reader company?)

 and of course my camera has the size that is not in the laptop. .... this handy dandy contraption will read all five sizes , but I am thinking they have invented a 6 and 7th size since I bought the five card reader. Plug it in a USB port and I can download from 5 different sizes of memory cards.

USB Multi-Port Gadget  ... this allows me to plug 4 USB cords into one port on the computer. Laptop has two ports, Desktop PC has 2 on the front and 4 on the back, the ones on the back are FULL and since I prefer a cordless mouse and keyboard, one of the front ports is busy...

 (conspiracy theory here is, they leave SPACES on the back to ADD more ports, because they KNOW 4 is not enough and we have to BUY and install) so if they took the time to put the space there why not the port?

TO BE CONTINUED due to much yada yada yada blah blah blah of MadSnapper A.K.A as MadTyper

I reckon us oldies are doing well to keep up with tech stuff. We went to upgrade our maps on our GPS only to be told that our model is superseded and new maps are no longer available. So we had to buy another GPS which will also be outdated in 3 to 5 years. Some where there must be piles and piles of outdated tech gizmos discarded.

I love gadgets! And the multi USB port is brilliant :-) I discovered the other week that my iMac has a slot where you put in the memory card from the camera - very handy dandy indeed! :-)
Have a great Monday! At work having my lunch :)

Since I don't love technology, my eyes simply glazed over, at the sight of this post.

Glad you have those, you use and like.

Carry on.

I don't even know what you are talking about! But I'm thinking about going out and getting myself one of each.

Best,

TexWisGirl said...

yeah, i bought an extra port 'tower' for my laptop to hook in all the extra usb ports. never use the printer connections. should have just gotten a cheaper port adapter. :)

Cranberry Morning said...

Good grief...and to think that we actually lived and survived in life before technology. lol My problem is keeping track of all this stuff. Where did I put that last memory stick?

Madi and Mom said...

MOL Mad Snapper needs a another gadget to carry all her gadgets.
Hugs Madi and Mom

I am very blessed I never have to worry about getting things to work...my son builds my computers and keeps everything up and going for me. I wouldn't know where to begin if I had to get gadgets to keep things going. Good job you are doing great keeping up with it all. Hugs

Kim @ Stuff could... said...

I have too many handy dandy gadgets too...maybe it is a conspiracy to get our $$

DawnTreader said...

I have a multi USB thingy but not the multi-card reader, only one card-slot on the laptop but it's the right size for my camera-card so no need of more just now.

Ruth's Photo Blog said...

All of these gadgets are very useful.Who ever said that a computer would be easy to use?look at all the stuff we need to make it work right.

photowannabe said...

I am so technically challenged that I really don't know what I am doing most of the time.
I thank my son all the time for coming to my rescue.
Your posts are always so enjoyable and I appreciate your offers of help when I have a hissie fit over this crazy communication tool...

Cheryl @ TFD said...

Sorry, but the techy stuff is way over my old head! Now my 86 yr old aunt would know exactly what you are talking about!!

Ann said...

Hard to believe there was ever a day when we didn't have all these dandy gadgets. Where would we be without them. I need to get one of those card readers and the multi-port gadget sounds pretty cool. I could use one of those too

Tammy@Simple Southern Happiness said...

YEP, conspiracy it is! Just like in the stores, 12 hotdog buns, only 8 hotdogs in a package.

Snapper II said...

I see all of your gadgets. I know what some of them are but not how to use them. Where is the Kindle. Isn't that agadget too?
Love, Mad

Maple Lane said...

I'm lost here too! My brother would know what all of this is!

Chatty Crone said...

There is way too much technology and less and less personality - doesn't really match exactly but it did rhyme.

EG CameraGirl said...

Yes, definitely a conspiracy. And we WILL continue to buy into it too, right?

Rose said...

So far I have not needed a multiport thingy....the only thing I keep plugged in is my wireless mouse on my laptop. Since I move it around...the desktop always has the printer plugged in, unless I want it for the laptop....and it has the wireless mouse always plugged in.

Dee said...

Your way ahead of me in the gadget area....LOL

Beatrice P. Boyd said...

Sandra, you got me to thinking what my favorite gadgets would be...a multi-card reader, USB extention would be a couple but I think there's way more then 5...YIKES!

Betty Manousos said...

Catherine said...

Scott said...

I'll bet you've had some of those since back in High School, right? ;^)

Isn't amazing how life has changed???

Jane said...

Sandra, I love your gadgets. I am a gadget person too. Even in the kitchen. I LOVE your photo liner as I know I told you this before. How your head pops out, with your beautifyul green eyes. Mirrors are helpful, so you say. Maybe I will change my header, you inspire me.

Liz said...

Love it!!! I have 5 mini 8GB USB drives and a portable 300GB USB drive which I currently use as my back up drive in case my laptop crashes. My new HP laptop does have 4 USB ports which is VERY handy!!
