Friend Makin' Monday: Tech Questions

Happy Monday Everyone! On Monday Kenlie over at All the Weigh hosts Friend Makin' Monday. How does it work? She posts questions on her blog. You answer them on your own blog, and then post a link at on All the Weigh. So, here are my answers. If you want to participate answer these questions on your own blog, and post the link in the comments of Kenlie's blog.




Tech Questions


1.  PC or Mac? I'm a PC girl. I don't mind Macs, but I just can't justify the added cost when the hardware is the same.
2. When did you get your first computer?  I got my own computer when I went to college in 2004. But, my family had a computer my entire life. The earliest computers we had were before windows...it's hard to believe now. I was an MS-DOS expert.
3. Do you use cable, DSL or something else? Cable.
4. When choosing a laptop, do you think it’s more important to choose the fastest one, or the lightest one?  Both. Actually, I mostly use my laptop at home (I don't take it with me too many places), and I do some computation heavy bioinformatics. So, speed is usually more important to me than weight.
5. What kind of cell phone do you own?  Do you like it? I have a Samsung free phone (you know the ones you get for free when you sign up for a plan). It makes calls, so I like it just fine. But, it doesn't do nearly as many cool things as an iPhone. But, that's not in the budget yet.
6. How do you carry your laptop when you travel?  In my laptop bag. It seems to protect it pretty well. I definitely carry it on when I fly, and stick it under the seat in front of me.
7. How many e-mails do you send on an average day? I don't know. Maybe 20?
8. Do you ever blog using your iPad or similar tablet? Nope. I don't have any of those cool gadgets.
9. What do you use more often – a desktop or a laptop? Laptop at home, and desktop at work (unless I'm traveling, then I take a work laptop).
10.  As a blogger, are there other gadgets that you need to get the job done?  If so, what are they?  My digital camera, but that's it.
Now it’s your turn to answer this week’s questions on your blog!  Don’t forget to go back to All the Weigh  and link up in the comments! Happy Monday, friends!

  1. FMM PC girls unite ;) Not sure why mac is as popular as it is, to be honest, I always found it more challenging to get the computer to do what I wanted it to do.

  2. happy Monday to you! Your question #3 makes me wonder if some people are still using "dial up". Does that still exist? hehe

    1. I sure hope not, dial up required way too much patience. There's no way I could go back now.

  3. True confession: I still use DOS commands sometimes. :)

    As to YumYucky's comment, I just got my parents converted to DSL from dial-up last month. Kicking and screaming, but they're now AOL-free. LOL

  4. I don't have a digital camera yet, but really want one. I think it would make my blog so much better.

    1. I love mine! It's great for posting pictures of my recipes. Although, my pictures don't really do the camera justice since I'm terrible at nicely arranging and photographing food (something to work on).
