I have an ipod nano.  And a blackberry.  I have t-mobile service, so I can talk for free thru my router at home, which is an excellent way to save money.  In fact, once t-mobile got the system to where it could handle phone calls (it was rough the first few months.), I turned off my Bellsouth phone service.
And my brother and I installed a satellite radio receiver in the car.

But the giant dish on the roof sure is hell on drag.

I like gadgets...lets see I have:

Ipod Classic (120gig)
Nintendo DS Light (with Invisible Shield)
Sony PSP 3000 (also with an Invisible Shield)
a point and shoot Samsung Camera (a cheap woot purchase)
my cell phone (it's not fancy...just a LG flip phone)

I've taken to carrying a second bag for just all my gadgets in addition to my laptop bag (the laptop is a work issued one.)

Edit: Oh yeah...at home (since I see the post about a DVR) I have:

46" LCD
19" LCD for mom133d to be able to watch the news from bed in the AM
Nice upconverting Reciever
PS3 (won it at a company gathering)
Xbox 360
Wii
DVD player
Tivo HD
three desktop computers (one home built, one Dell mini tower, and one older Refurb) all running wireless so I don't have to run cables.

The cool device that I don't have, but is at the top of my wish list, is the Palm Pre. It is Palm's answer to the IPhone and it got rave reviews at a tech convention in January. I've run my life and business on various Palm products for years now and it sounds like with the Pre, they finally got their act together for a next-gen smartphone.

Problem is, it comes to Sprint probably by early summer, and I'm locked into Verizon for now. So I'll have to wait until Palm's exclusivity agreement with Sprint runs out and hopefully Verizon will have it by late in the year.

Let's see...

iMac desktop
Macbook (DH's laptop)
my Asus 10" netbook
iPod classic (80G)
iPod shuffle (the tiny one - is that 2nd gen??)
Creative Zen Vision M (my first video mp3 player, it's still around here somewhere)
3 DVRs (we're sick, I know)
Dish network satellite TV
50" DLP TV w/surround sound
XM radio in both cars (Sirius XM now but we've had XM for awhile)
Apple TV (love this one!)
Palm Treo (my cell/smartphone - first cell I've ever become attached to)
DH loves his iPhone

Almost all of these were things DH wanted - he's the household gadget guru & I'm behind the power curve on most any tech toy - the Kindle is probably the only "cool device" I've wanted before him.  And he was totally surprised when I expressed interest in a netbook recently.

Back in the 80's, my aunt asked my great grandmother, who was 92 at the time, what was the best invention of her lifetime.  She immediately answered "indoor plumbing"

Ask me the same question and there would not be an immediate answer for the one best invention of my lifetime, but my list would be:

DVR (It changed my life!)
Kindle (Ditto)
iPhone (Ditto)

I have had some lifechanging purchases  :D

This past week I went to a new specialist for some medical problems that I have been diagnosed with and my regular doctor hadn't faxed him my bloodwork results.  Luckily, I had typed all my results into my iPhone notes for the specialists appointment on my calendar!  He requested his nurse to get the official results faxed to him, but in the meantime, he was way impressed with my iPhone!!!

My wife has had XM for years and I discovered today (I don't drive her car much) that my favorite channels have been dumped! I really liked Fred, Ethel and Lucy; the replacements aren't nearly as good.

Yeah I liked Lucy too, better than the replacement (never listened to Fred & Ethel as much - and the names alone were just so great!). I listen to Sirius in the house (on Dish Network) - some of the merger pretty much went backwards from how I'd have liked to have seen it. Go figure...

2 laptops, a Mac, a netbook, an all-in-one computer, some other computers, an iPhone, iPods, Kindle (duh), DVR, 2 Blu-Ray players, 2 HD TVs, 5 (yes, 5) digital cameras, 2 XM radios, PS3, a telescope. Probably some other junk, too, like the USB plasma ball thingies.

I used to like the remote ceiling fan until it started turning on and off all by itself. Somebody in my area has a garage door opener or something that is on the same frequency....very annoying!
