How Much of a Geek Are You?

Geek-ThumbnailWe’ve all heard the words … “geek,” “nerd,” etc. And it wasn’t too long ago that anyone on a computer was considered a geek. But times have definitely changed. Now it’s more abnormal to not have a computer and/or some type of mobile device. With that in mind, how much of a geek are you? How many toys do you have?

What sets the benchmark these days for being a geek? It’s no longer just having a computer or mobile device. They’ve infiltrated our lives too much. The benchmark must be what you do with your computer or mobile device or perhaps how many you have. Some people have a computer under each different operating system and have multiple mobile phones and tablets, depending on their present need. Certainly if you’re just checking email and Facebook, that doesn’t qualify you as a geek. Yet many people go beyond that use, programming their computers or developing their own apps for mobile devices.

How about you? Do you only sit on your computer and mobile phone to connect with people when you need to or are you on your devices day and night? Do you only have one computer and a mobile phone or can you also add in a tablet, another mobile phone, and a few more computers?
