Are you a gadget guy or gal?

I realized the other night that I'm really a gadget guy. How can you tell if you're a gadget guy (or gal)? If you can answer "yes" to at least 7 of these, then you probably are:

  1. You make a weekly trip to Best Buy, Circuit City, CompUSA, or Radio Shack. You often buy things from these stores that you don't need.
  2. You buy magazines that show off new gadgets, software, or hardware.
  3. You think the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas would be a nice vacation.
  4. People have called you "a nerd."
  5. You can talk for hours with other people about computer stuff, cell phones, PDAs, the web, or other technology.
  6. You can answer within 1/2 of a second how fast your computer's processor runs.
  7. You can tell someone which operating system you are running (Windows XP, Windows 2000, Mac OSX, etc.)
  8. You like to look at other people's cell phones and "try them out."
  9. You have used the word "server" in everyday conversations.
  10. You think Mr. Spock is "pretty cool."
  11. Bonus points: You work in the tech industry.
  12. Bonus points: If you have kids, you look for ways to buy gadgets for them that are really for you. (For example: Robosapian.)

Whether being a gadget guy or gal is a good thing remains to be seen.
