I think the tech bug bites people of all ages and lifestyles. I find I'm really inspired to create with the emerging technologies and I'm 50. Most people my age use computers and related devices as little as is necessary. I'm frequently being asked to help get an older friends going in a tech capacity only to find I have to drive them to follow through with it.
I think if we knew more about the members of the site, we'd see a surprisingly diverse bunch here.
I am 36 and a music producer and record label owner and that's just the part time job. I like useful gadgets, especially ones that are good for the things that I stated earlier. iPhone applies to both. Doing business while I'm on break from my day job and can even create music on this thing which was unimaginable not too many years ago.
I'm a 35 yr old mom of four, stayed home until three years ago. I love my Apple gadgets from my iPad to my iPhone 4!! You would be surprised how many of us are out there! I love it because I get an educator's discount now!!
I am a stay at home mom of a nearly 3 yr old and I'm getting my iphone for my 39th birthday next Thursday (if it comes by then, probably not). I think I'm more excited about it than my tech hubby. I'll have something to do now while my daughter is crashed out in the back seat of the car and i'm sitting in the Target parking lot while she naps.
LOL BFE, Oregon. Pretty sure I've lived there or near, having been born and spent most of my life in Oregon. I'm guessing you're going to discover more uses...practical uses beyond distractive entertainment. They tell me....'there's an app for that'. I suspect you'll be surprised after about 2 weeks. Have fun.
