Blog people are pretty savvy people, methinks. If that's true, I'm sadly out of place. But it does put me in a good spot to ask for help.
Hypothetically, if you were asked to help think of truly useful, contstructive and worthwhile ways to help (ahem) invest your work group's technology budget before the end of the fiscal year, what great ideas would you have? Assuming you already have a brand-new laptop, a flat-screen monitor, a scanner, a laser printer and a cell phone, and the department has a digital camera which you can use any old time.
(My cell phone is almost two years old. Is that old for a cell phone? Should I try to get a new one?)
What's your work wish list? And can you think of a way to justify a big fat 40 gig iPod as a part of it?
