    What tech devices save u time, make things easier, more enjoyable in business & personal life.

    Mine: MP3 player keeps boredom at bay while mowing lawns I couls do with my eyes closed.

    TIVO: no commerceials!!!! Rarely do I watch anything live.

    Online banking is a big time saver also. NO more stamps for mailing bills.

    Of course cell phones... I need to get a blackberry but can't quite justify more monthly costs for emailing & such. What are the monthly rates now for unlimited data transfer. Last time I looked it was $60 per month

    What do u guys who have GPS devices use them for besides the obvious driving directions & such? What is a good one at a lower price range?

    it's more of a toy, but i like my digital camera. if nothing else, it's handy for doccumenting existing damage on properties.

    I never realized just how much I'd love online banking and paying bills online until I started doing it. :)

    i agree, the last few vehicles i've bought have navigation in them, it is such a time saver it isn't even funny. my other favorite thing is my wireless printer for our office. I can walk around our building printing stuff off of my laptop as well as everyone who has a laptop in the company!
