Gadgets You Just Can’t Live Without
For those who weren’t brought up in this generation of instant communication and mobile technology, it’s hard to fathom just how the technology is so addicting. When those old-timers ask us, “What would you do without your Blackberry,” well, we genuinely don’t know the answer. What would we do without our gadgets? Hey, what would someone asking that question do without their house, or without food, or without the ability to speak? It’s just part of our culture now. We love these gadgets, and some we simply cannot live without.
However, the pricing options of some of these gadgets are rather high. And with the credit crunch going on, it’s harder to pick up these little tools of distraction for ourselves. One viable option you can check out is payday loans. If you see a gadget you simply must have, then a quick, no-muss, no-fuss cash infusion might set you over the top and allow you to palm one of the coolest high-tech gizmos on the market.
Here are five legitimate can’t-live-without gadgets that you might be interested in:
Zune HD 32GB Platinum
When it comes to mobile devices, Apple is usually the rage – but don’t sleep on Microsoft here. This isn’t a buggy Vista or an iffy W7. The Zune high-definition media player is about as good as it gets in terms of true mobile entertainment.
Zune platinum has a 3.3-inch OLED HD display, 32GB of memory, built in Wi-Fi, and a state-of-the-art radio receiver. The all-touch-screen function of Zune makes it the player to beat. iPod doesn’t hold a candle to this latest gadget.
The new Zune comes in at around $200, making it one of the more affordable mobile gadgets available.
Samsung Touch of Color LCD Monitor
Anyone with a desktop computer would be wise to check out this monitor. Oh, it’s just a monitor, you say? Not so fast. This is the hottest and best-performing monitor on the market, with 10,000:1 CR (contrast ratio), built-in speakers, 2 HDMI ports, and much more.
This 26-inch widescreen model is available for right around $280. Being the best thing happening for PC display since LCD took over projection, taking out a cash advance loan to purchase this bad boy would bring about no guilt.
Unless you’ve been trippin’ the dream fantastic in a coma for the past year, you already know all about the Apple iPad. Apple’s new tablet computer is like a smartphone on steroids, and is supposedly the replacement for laptop computers.
Its large touch-screen display and slim setup is just like any other mobile device, but its sheer size and power makes it a legitimate computer. It’s perfect for individuals who love computing on the go but want a bigger screen and better sound to enjoy. You can pick up the 32MB iPad for around $800 and find out for yourself what all the fuss is about.
Garmin Nuvi Navigator
This little GPS might look just like every other GPS on the market at first glance. But if you think this little puppy’s a run-of-the-mill navigator, you better think again. The Garmin Nuvi 4.3-inch widescreen Bluetooth GPS is leaner and meaner than every other model in operation.
Not only is this GPS unit thinner, lighter and brighter, but it also gives live-time traffic, weather and map updates, and also links you up with HotFix Satellite prediction. It’s not your basic nav unit, but the price is right in the wheelhouse for a GPS – around $250.
HTC Evo 4G Androi
The HTC Evo 4G Android is the world’s first 4G smartphone, already setting it head and shoulders above the competition. The touch-screen LCD display and basic body of the phone is just like any other version of Android, but it really takes on new life in this 4G model.
Android offers simultaneous voice and data connectivity, for starters, and its download speeds can reach up to 10 times faster than any 3G phone on the market. For Android’s latest mobile phone, you can expect to pay about $550.
