Are You a Tech Minimalist?

Are You a Tech Minimalist?

Last week we saw Gregory featured on the New York Times, where he spoke candidly about living minimally with tech (in his case, life sans the cellular). Though primarily due to a constrained budget at the time, in time has morphed into an ongoing lifestyle. So, in the spirit of living like a technophile-minimalist, we'd like to open it all up to our readers. Do you consider yourself an electronics aggregator or one that carefully plans out an entire spreadsheet of plus/minuses before adding another piece of technology into their life?

Personally, I have a hard time myself keeping my purchasing fingers off that Checkout button online when it comes down to consumer goodies. I tend to purchase a number of different headphones (some cheap, some not so much), but use my desktop speakers to listen to my music about 90% of the time.

Then again, this observation only came about after the fact, so I guess it could be considered a worthy investment in the spirit of self-acknowledgment of a personal headphone addiction, yeah?
