Hilary Duff Gets Personal About Her Tech Style

Recently, AOL's Switched had the pleasure of talking with Hilary Duff about gadgets, gaming, and her net surfing habits. Who knew that this actress-turned-popstar was such a techie diva? During the interview, Duff shares her obsession with BlackBerries, the infamous and yet-to-be-released iPhone and - this is the bit that totally surprised me - how she can't wait to get a Slingbox, the new TV streaming device that lets you watch all your fave TV shows on your laptop. I must say, just knowing that Duff is into Slingbox makes me respect her a whole lot more. Here are some of the highlights from the interview:

On what cell she is using now and why she loves it or hates it: "The T-Mobile BlackBerry 8700, I moved from the Sidekick because the Sidekick was big and more like a toy. I like the BlackBerry, it has a cool pin system for BlackBerry-to-BlackBerry communication."
  • Discussing whether or not she'll get an iPhone: "I'll wait and see how people like it. The first of anything always has glitches and kinks to work out."
  • What she wishes her iPod, cell phone, or laptop could do that it doesn't do now: "I wish my cell phone could play my favorite TV shows on voice demand. It would be cool if my laptop could go to applications and iTunes by voice command, too."

    every mac can switch app by voice commands if you go to preference and search the part for the handycap or for the blind people section.
