Applications of Modern Gadgetry

The gadget is a major part of just about everybody’s life these days. While it would seem that there are two minds present in the average gadgeteer that would work against one another, this isn’t true in the slightest. As a matter of fact, these two minds produce a wonderful harmony. The ultimate application of modern gadgetry is that both the minimalist and the hardcore gadget consumer can coexist in a surprising type of harmony.

The Gadgets Themselves

Gadgets have gotten to the point where they can do just about anything that doesn’t involve manual labor or creativity. Unless you’ve got the funds to buy a robot of your own, those kinds of things just can’t be technologically outsourced yet. However, for anything else, you’ve got a host of different technological options to choose from. In a sense, you actually have a sort of overload to deal with that people in the past never had.

At a point not that long ago, the average person barely had a choice of technology that would do anything more complex than heat or cool their food. Nowadays, you can either choose to pick up tons of highly specialized gadgets to play with, or the one or two ubergadgets that seem to do the limited “everything” mentioned above. As the gadgets evolve in tandem, you have an increasingly challenging decision to make: the one, or the many?

The One Vs the Many

In this day and age, you can pretty much buy a single gadget that will do everything. While Droid phones aren’t perfect, they and some of their ilk allow you to perform all kinds of functions that range from basic things like calculating and planning all the way up to arranging sophisticated interactions with a lot of people and services involved. You can get a huge amount of things done without all of the fuss and muss you would’ve had to invest in years past. So only having one device in your pocket allows you a ton of options.

However, one device can only do so much. No matter how awesome this device may be, it still tends to be overshadowed in some areas. As the old saying goes, “being a jack of all trades is being a master of none.” Specialized machinery almost always trumps the more generalized gadgets, which is why there will always be a market for great cameras that don’t do anything else. Of course, the gadgets themselves are only one part of the system, and everything else also has to work together to complete the proper gadgeteer’s lifestyle.

The Support Network

Having a great support network is one of the strongest links the Droid has going for it. The Android operating system has a veritable army of supporters, and among this group a lot of great ideas grow readily. Whenever you have a large number of people who have passion, incredible things happen. Without a great network in place, even the best gadgets lose a lot of their luster.
