What Technology Did You Adopt in 2008?

I've made my predictions for what 2009 will bring, and even though it's the new year, I'm still looking back — on what I adopted in 2008. I converted to smartphones and the iPhone (two versions in two years) pre-'08, but this year I bought my first flat screen HDTV and a console for fun (the Wii) and a console for fun and Blu-ray (Playstation 3).

As TV faces the digital conversion, I saw a lot of people go big with this and get their first high def TVs. I saw (sometimes with my prodding) many of my friends and family became iPhone lovers for the first time. I saw switches from PCs to Macs and vice versa. So your turn — tell me, what tech did you adopt in 2008?

I bought my daughter a MacBook for college and I'm jealous. Both kids got iPod touches. I'm jealous. I bought a mini computer for myself. I love it. It fits in my purse. My husband likes to sit outside in our little downtown area and work on his computer. I used to go with him and read a book or twiddle my thumbs, now I pull out my mini and Stumble the web!

Nintendo DS! I love it, and I never thought I'd be into any type of video game doodad. This year I really want a Wii and Wii Fit. Maybe also one of those Clarisonic thingies for your face, if that counts.

Sorry that was Flip Mino. Hate when the iPhone autocorrects for me.
