But then I get mad because I don't want to spend money on things I don't need just because society expects me to. And then I get embarrassed because I don't know how modern technology works and I'm also kinda jealous of people who seemingly have hundreds of dollars to drop on these devices that are basically just magic to me.
I say get a tablet. Last summer my desktop computer crapped out and my Nexus has been my only connection to the online world since. I was unemployed for 6 months so getting a new computer was not an option. Now that I have a job we are just now looking at getting a new computer.
