Happy Friday everyone! I wanted to sign off for the week with a link to this interesting New York Times story, headlined “Gadgets you should get rid of (or not).”

In sum: Dump the desktop, keep the books (with one exception-cookbooks???)

Have a lovely weekend!

    I love 50's images! Congrats

    Books – keep them! Most definitely agree!
    GPS – lose it. That's the one I have to disagree with. Love having that Garmen mounted in front of me.

    Happy weekend!! 🙂

    While I love the idea of seeing how a dish is supposed to look and visuals of the methods used to get it there. . . I just think of the food-splattered pages of my cookbook collection, collected over 20 years and shutter to think what would happen to an electronic device on my countertop.

    great inspiration.
    I love your blog!

    what an interesting article…I don't have a smartphone though, so I guess it doesn't apply! haha.

    I could never get rid of my cockbooks! I'd starve then… (maybe that just tells something different about me than the article intended :))

    I disagreed with a few of their suggestions. Losing thumb drives and placing things in the cloud, for instance, is not something that has worked for me in the past.
    …And of course, I could never ever lose the books or the cookbooks.
