I'M A TECHNO JUNKIE
My name is Colleen Coble, and I'm a techno junkie. I admit it. I love new technology gizmos. I use a Palm Pilot. My laptop is a Sony Vaio that is the envy of everyone who sees my less-than-two-pound-baby-that-fits-in-my-purse. I like tinkering with my own website instead of turning it over to a professional. (Okay, maybe that's because I also have control issues.)

The newest gizmo that I've added to my arsenal is the Canon digital camera my husband got me for Christmas. It's a Powershot A610 and I LOVE it! I've been snapping pictures of everything from my new daughter to be to candid photos of my husband in the shower. Okay, not really, but I thought about it just to be ornery. (He tried to do that to me but forgot to open the lens--may the heavens rejoice!) Anyway, I did a ton of research before putting this camera on my list, and it's everything all the reviewers claimed. Super easy to use, fabulous pictures, small and sexy. So if you're in the market for a new digital, check it out.

If only writing a book were that easy! Wouldn't it be cool if there was some gizmo we could plug our fingers into and it would read all the wonderful scenes floating around in our heads and transpose them into a cohesive story that wowed everyone? Hmm, on second thought, that's the real fun of writing. Teasing out the story bit by bit and getting those flashes of inspiration we know can only come from God. It's just. . . magic. I don't think I could give that up for the newest, cutest little piece of technology to sashay down the runway.

I have a powershot A400. I love it!! Of course, I'd rather be in Circuit City than Nordstrom's so we're soul sisters there. Give me a flatscreen, Tivo and a remote, and I am happy.

Techo-geeks unite!

I have a Powershot A300. Super, super. I do kind of wish we had that book generator to help us at least corral the ideas better...sometimes. :)

I don't know what kind I have...it's my husband's, and I steal it whenever I go to conferences. But it's so darn complicated that I'm considering going back to a regular manual camera. I keep getting horribly blurry shots and I don't know how to manipulate the settings.

You look beautiful!! I can tell you've lost weight! I'm inspired.

Yes, I want a gizzmo that translates all my scenes from my head through my fingers to the page!

I'm a techno junkie too. Got a 19' monitor for my birthday. LOL

I'd die without my laptop, PDA and cell phone. I did sell my camera and mp3 player on ebay... looking for better ones at the moment... :)

I love new techo toys, but I can never figure out how to work them unless someone shows me how!

C, you look MAHVELOUS, Dahling!

Happy New Year, lady! I'm so blessed by your friendship!
