  • I have to say that I am most thankful for my laptop.  If it weren’t for this I would not have been able to go back to school for a second bachelor’s degree.  I am currently in the middle of earning an Accounting Degree online and the mobility of my laptop has made this a possibility.  I purchased it when I first started courses and it has been invaluable when I have been on vacation or at work when I have had to check in or submit an assignment.  This laptop is going to be the reason for my next career and hopefully a more comfortable life for my family.

  • I am most thankful for the Processor…most excellent piece of technology…

  • I am most thankful for Android because it brought in the much needed competition (and hence innovation) in the mobile market that had been stagnant till 2008.

  • Ncimagepro

    Most thankful for my first portable computer, a Kaypro 10 that came with a 10 megabyte internal hard drive and a single DS/DD floppy drive and a green 9 inch CRT. The thing was the size of a suitcase, but in 1984 I was the only kid I knew with a portable computer. I would never have imagined that we would be at the point we are now with mobile computing while lugging a 15 pound steel encased machine to grandma’s house for the weekend.

  • Aaron Halbert

    I’m most thankful for my Samsung Vibrant, it keeps me connected on the go and lets me do things I wouldn’t have thought possible 4 years ago. Now here’s hoping I get an android device with a bigger screen!

  • Alan Paone

    I”m most thankful for my netbook. If it weren’t for netbooks, I don’t think I could afford a computer, and I’d never waste hours reading all the comments on Droid-life…wait, is that a good thing? yes it is!

  • I’m most thankful for the internet. It has proved to be a vital tool for communication and information. We can learn about things happening across the globe in an instant, and can talk to people we may not have had the chance to meet in any other way before. It is possible to have real time chats with people face to face who live hundreds of miles away. We can keep in touch with long lost friends. We can share our experiences in new ways. It has even changed our humor! Where would we be without internet memes?! 🙂

  • Justin795

    Can’t see without my glasses.

  • Sabino Gonzalez03

    I am most thankful for my Motorola Droid. It is still running great after 2 years. Never been rooted, never used screen protectors or phone covers, and despite a few drops, it hasn’t gotten a scratch on it. I’ve even been asked “Did you get a new phone?” a few times by my friends. That’s how you know you’ve got a great phone.

  • Rob

    Of course I’m most thankful for my Android phone – Over the past few years, the mobile phone has grown from simply a phone that goes anywhere you do (still an underrated feature) to an instant messaging center, webcam, mp3 player, computer, netflix streaming device, weatherman, newspaper, game console, GPS, calculator, address book, wallet, alarm clock, calendar…the list goes on. I can go through my apps and continue. Should I continue? Nah, Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

  • Carlos

    If there’s any piece of technology I am most thankful for, I would say it’s the mobile phone. Regardless if it’s the latest smartphone model or your grandma’s mobile phone from the Triassic era, its technology has enabled anyone from anywhere to communicate with their loved ones at any time. Unfortunately, it has also enabled the wives from everywhere to constantly nag their husband 😀

  • Rashon Gordon

    I am thankful for the Skype.  It helps me stay in contact with my family when I am deployed or away on missions.  Being in the Army, I don’t always get to be home for all the important things that happen with my wife and kids.  Thanks to video chatting, my family can tell me about their days face to face.

  • Todd Bath

    I am most thankful for the computer. It is the reason I have a good paying job!

  • Screen: whether it is a tv screen, computer monitor, phone screen, or gaming handheld screen. Without that technology, we would “see” the world very differently.

  • Anonymous

    I’m thankful for three things:

    1) The Combustion Engine since it allows me to drive around, fly home to see my family in England and just.. live!

    2) the telephone since it allows me to keep in touch with people (and the smartphone, which is an improved version of this)

    3) The internet – ’cause how else would I keep up to date with the world of Droid Life?

  • Patricia_pastorino

    I am most thankful for the internet, there is nothing that you can’t do with the internet. Video gaming, streaming videos, learn how to do just about anything, the possibilities are endless.

  • skylordusa

    I am most thankful for the smartphone. The coolest person on the planet is whoever said to themselves hey you know what would be cool if we can take a computer and make it small enough for people to carry around in their pocket and they could also use it as a phone.

  • Pete Edelstein

    Definitely most thankful for the OG Droid, not because I currently use one (I did) but it set the bar for Android and manufacturers implementing Android in their devices. It stimulated manufacturers and developers to make Android and Android devices better while causing an uproar within the Apple community because of the progress it had made.  Without that device I dont think Android would be where it is today and is still growing exponentially.  

  • I am most thankful for the front facing cameras because i can A) Take pictures of my beautiful face, and B) I can video chat with my family wherever I go. I hope i win! #WINNING

  • Wanderfowl

    I’m most thankful for my Android.  It’s wonderful to never be completely disconnected, and to always be at hand to those who need me.  

  • kking56

    I’m most thankful for my smart phone.  I am able to download attachments from my email, tweet/check facebook, and play game where ever.  I can play and work from anywhere and always be on the move.  Oh and there’s the calling and text message you can do with it. hehe

  • I am most thankful for the Processor, without it none of this would be possible!

  • I am most thankful for my cell phone.  I do everything on my cell phone.. from the basic calling & texting to buying stocks, transferring money, sending out meeting notices, video chatting, etc.  Without my phone I would be lost as I travel a lot and do everything remotely.  I barely use my 6-core i7 beast of a computer.

  • I am most thankful for this Asus Transformer tablet that I am hoping that I win!! 🙂
    Oh yea, and Droid Life for helping me win it! #browniepoints

  • I am most thankful for my phone and how the smartphone technology has evolved so rapidly over the years.

  • Fierogt5spd

    I am most thankful for the internet.  Without it we could not find out all of this cool stuff on a daily basis.  Sure beats the old dial up modems and BB service.

  • Tom Crews

    Wireless….doesn’t matter what type (WiFi, 3G/4G, etc..).  Just simple things like being able to put my printer in a different location from the computer, using laptops from room to room in the house, being mobile with my tablet or smartphone, etc…..

    That’s the technology I’m thankful for!

  • Kevin Raymond

    I’m most thankful for my smartphone. A little over a year ago, I became connected in a way I had never been before. If I ever need to look something up, whether it be a phone number, address, or who won a football game, I have the information right at my fingertips. I’ve become much more organized thanks to always having a calendar, schedule, and to-do list with me at all times. The entertainment available to me is incredible as well. Everything from games, to music, to even movies are all contained within a handheld device. Owning a smartphone has changed the way I live dramatically, and I look forward to continuing to own one for many years to come. For that, I am thankful.

  • I am most thankful for my ASUS UL30VT-A1 laptop. It has made it through the past year and a half without a problem. Running on the integrated graphics card with 50% brightness get me 6+ hours of battery life. It weighs less than 4 pounds and makes traveling that much easier.

  • I am most thankful for cell phones, more so, smartphones. Without them we would not be able to keep in touch with people like we do today. We’d still be walking to our friends houses and asking “can so and so come out and play”? 😀

  • I’m going to say that I’m most thankful for the Packard Bell P-133 my dad bought years ago. It was the fist real computer in the family and taking it apart and putting it back together basically got me hooked on technology and was a great bonding experience with my dad. I’ll always remember when we got that new 16MB memory stick for it and put it in. As a matter of fact I still have the Processor sitting on my shelf with my movie collection. Wow, that just brought back a lot of awesome memories. Now back to my MacBook Pro and Droid Bionic, what a long way we have come.

  • Niiiiinja

    I’d be lost without my Aria(sometimes quite literally lol).

  • Without question, the technology I’m most thankful for is the Internet itself.  It’s barely twenty years old and it’s completely changed the world.

  • Skunk13

    Wow, I am most thankful for the proposal of the “Hypertext project” that was called the “WorldWideWeb”. This web has grown into an amazing technology. The amount of time it cuts on research and with wonderful resources at my finger tips to feed my technology addiction, I think this would have to be my most thankful technology.

  • I am most thankful for cell phones in general. I remember all too well trying to coordinate everything before leaving the house or office.

    I am most thankful for the OG Droid. I have not been able to turn away from Android since I got that phone.

  • I am most thankful for electricity. After coming back from visiting a third world country, I will never again take the power grid for granted.

  • I am most thankful for the Mother Board. With out this we could not have any piece of technology we have today. No phones, computers, car electronics, internet, and even no DroidLife 🙁 .
    So that is why i say my most thankful piece of technology is the motherboard.

  • Hardin71

    I am most thankful for the invention of electricity without it all of our lives would on horse and buggy still. Without electricity the majority of everyone’s favorite things would be bricked, including droid-life :-(.

    I am thankful for internet-capable devices. Naturally being shy growing up, the internet was helpful in relieving that a little. Even being antisocial, I had more ease talking to people online than in person. Very often, I’d even make a new friend. Every anxiety I had was remedied, mostly from the veil of privacy but also from others that shared my worries. Rarely would I revert back to my panicked ways, from being amongst strangers, that were usually antagonists that had their imagined vendettas. With the confidence of real friends (funny that I’ve never met one locally), I could traverse my city and talk easier with anyone. I grew stronger thanks to devices like the personal computer and my favored Motorola Droid. Now when I am doubted or anything, I feel strong enough to tell them “prove me wrong.”

    Thank you for the contest and reading my entry thoroughly. 🙂

  • I would have to say my original Moto Droid!

  • Jay Thompson

    I am most thankful for cellular technology, without it how would I feel naked every time I leave the house without my phone?… oh and we wouldnt have Android or Droid-Life for that matter.

  • Baby Banger

    I am most thankful for the OG Droid, because it’s turned me into a complete tech geek.  I knew I always had it in me, since I’d try and customize every other phone I ever purchased.  But, with the OG Droid, the possibilities were really endless and I have learned so much from it about the mobile tech world and it’s been a wonderful ride!

    I am thankful for any and all writing devices, for we would not be where we are if we were not able to record our history.

  • James King

    Hmmm hard to pick one piece of tech I’m most thankful for….but I would probably had to say my smartphone (i bounce between a Xperia Play, or whatever is my latest android phone, and an iPhone)  Can do so much with these small devices its crazy.

  • Jonik Cannon

    mp3 players, i was one of those dudes who carried spindles of cd’s everywhere i went, because my family, friends, roommates and their friends was stealing them or destroying them.  After getting my first player(Creative Zen Micro 8gb) i knew my troubles where over, i could finally enjoy all of my music anywhere i was at

  • Ronald Sederio

    I am most thankful for my HTC Touch…it sucked enough to make me root it to flash new roms and it’s all down hill from there.

  • The transistor.  It shrank binary computing units from vacuum tubes and put us on the road to the current level of miniaturization that we have now and will have in the future.

  • I have to say, I AM most grateful for the micro-processor. It has led to the creation of almost every single thing in modern history. Most commonly the things we take for granted like digital cameras, phones, laptops/PC.. Without them.. We would have hit a dead spot in progression and innovation.

  • Anonymous

    The obvious answer here is my Android phone, but it is quite literally the most used item I own. It keeps me connected to the people I don’t get to see very often, it answers my questions, it helps me plan my day, and it helps me kill time. I don’t even know what I did with my time before I got this phone. The same was true with my Blackberry, but it’s exponentially more significant with my Thunderbolt. 

  • Cdyer1985

    3.draw stick figures and play games like super mario(how awesome is that)
    4. and last but not least we’re able to save math formulas *cough* i mean let the ti83 make our lives easier in exams.

  •  The technology that I am most thankful for would have to be glasses.  Without them, I wouldn’t have been able to read this contest and nerd it up in true fashion.

    Google Translate is one of the greatest pieces of technology for me. My girlfriends parents (soon to be in laws) is Brazilian and doesnt not speak English. While I don’t full speak portuguese, I’m getting there. Having Translate on my phone when I’m with them allows me to patch up my poor portuguese and speak with them. They mean a lot to me and means a lot to them to have me trying so hard to communicate.

    Wireless technology – whether it’s 3G/4G signal or Wifi, without it I wouldn’t have anything to keep me entertained on those long road trips or boring days at work. Without it my phone is useless!

  • adryan maldonado

    I definitely most thankful for my custom built computer. Mostly because it connects to internet which makes it possible for websites like you guys to give prizes away like this and of course nvidia for providing them. But most importantly it gives me access to the android community which has done some amazing things for our phones and tablets and is able to share it with the world

  • Susyflower

    I’m most thankful for my DVR.  I love television but I just don’t have the life that allows me to sit down and watch a show when it is actually on.  Also, my fiance and I don’t always have the same taste in shows so we both have our own DVR to fill up to our hearts content.

    Television, without a doubt. All those years as a kid, I never would’ve been able to watch Mighty Morphin Power Rangers or Barney without the TV. I always wanted to morph into a ranger and then ride in a megazord. I still have every TV my family has ever owned too, though they’re collecting a bunch of dust in my attic. 

  • For me it has to be the television, made growing up in the 90’s awesome.

    I am most thankful for Motorola Droid 1, because without it android would not be what it is today.

  • I am most thankful for the “modern” Camera. I’ve been a shutterbug since I was 7 years old.  A camera is so important to me to keep memories of our 2 children and family.

    With the holidays coming it is time to polish the lenses and charge the batteries to see what new moments I can capture.  Looking forward to it!

  • Appleanche

    I think I’ll go with the original Macintosh, probably not a popular choice here, but oh well.

    This computer set the mold on how we’d use computers for a very long time. It’s been nearly 30 years and we’re still using practically the same style of GUI (whether it’s Windows or Macintosh). What amazes me to think about is that if someone learned how to use a Macintosh and somehow never used another computer till now, they’d likely still be able to navigate and understand functions since the basics are still the same. 
    When you think of it, there are few technology products out there that can really say that after 30 years that still look as relevant today. 

  • I am most thankful for my OG Motorola Droid. It was the beginning of an Android era that has expanded and grown into a great piece of technology that has thrived for innovation and great user experience. Although I cannot wait for the Galaxy Nexus to finally come out I will forever be proud to have been a part of the beginning Droid family and will hold on to my OG Droid forever.

  • Mark Christian

    Seeing as how technology has changed so much, it’s hard to really say what exactly we are MOST thankful for.  But if I had to narrow it down to a single element, it’s the technology that allows us to communicate over long distances.  Whether it be a phone, walkie talkie, the internet, skype, or a plethora of other communication mediums; my absolute favorite thing is being able to keep in contact with all my friends and family.

    Thanks technology!

  • I’m most thankful for the smartphones of today. I can do so much with this thing now, just wish the battery lasted longer. I hope that I win so that I can offload some of the stuff I do onto the tablet so that my battery will last longer… 😛

  • Hockey puck55

  • Craig Lambert

    I am most thankful for my electronic leash.  Err…  My smartphone.  Sure, it’s a little dated.  I’m sporting a HTC Incredible but my contract isn’t up until March.  Funny thing is, I still love it.  Rooting it gives me the ability to continually change it if I desire.  CM7.1 has been my poison for awhile though.  Sure I would like a bigger screen and faster processor, don’t get me wrong.  I drool at the sight of the Galaxy Nexus even with it’s lack of micro SD shortcomings.  Fact of the matter is, I’m a technology fanboy.  It’s just too bad that my wallet can’t keep up with my taste.

    Good luck people.  Some randomly selected person is going to get one hell of a prize package!

  • I’m most thankful for my mobile device which gets used as a computer more than a phone.

  • Thankful for technology? My Nexus One, definitely. It was the first smartphone that I really liked the look of and it was bought as a surprise present for me. The old Nexus One was an awesome piece of tech and for me was the phone that made android a viable option in the smartphone line-up.

  • Xboxkid

    I am most thankful for my original xbox. It was the first thing i owned that i customized. I put custom LED lighting in it and put in a custom nameplate. It was bad-ass. The best part, though, was that it was the first piece of technology that I modified for function. It was the best, I could easily just load up every game ever on xbox with no disks! It was like i had rooted my xbox! Really this was my introduction into the tech world.

  • Caelant2000

    The Sinclair ZX80, (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ZX80). This was my first “computer”, and the device that got me rolling before the Sinclair ZX Spectrum 48k, (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ZX_Spectrum), became computer #2! Damn I miss those rubber keys!!!

  • Scott

    My first computer that was a Packard Bell.  It introduced me to the world of computing and I’ve been hooked ever since.  This computer was very unafforadable but let me pursue a degree in Computer Science many years later thanks to what I learned using it.  Without computers we wouldn’t communicate the way we do now, search for information, stay connected and get entertainment.  The computer revolutionized the world long before smartphones.  Plus I don’t have to pay those ridiculous long distance fees anymore!  Long live the PC!

  • Wendnrein

    My OG Droid is the device I am most thankful for. The convenience of being able to find out the info I need in any situation by surfing the web on it is indispensable.  I love the ability to stop and check unusual Dr. orders on google at work, check my email on break, read FML when I am stressed and need a laugh, swap Black Friday ad info with the girls I work with, and the fact that my device does it with ease. Yes, my OG is getting old but the dear has been dropped multiple times, been left in in climate temperature and still works nearly  flawlessly and when I ask it to. And in the end what more could you ask for?

  • youarealwaysthereMD

    I am most thankful for the 65″ Panasonic Viera sitting in my living room. TV is one of my few escapes from life and with its HD graphics, I just get lost in the programming of shows. There’s no better way to rage, laugh, or cry at an inanimate object than a TV because it is an outlet.

  • I am thankful for all the technology that led to the creation of the smartphone because there isn’t a moment in the day that I do not have it around me.

  • Tom Hall

  • I would say the internet. It may be full of ways to waste time and cause people to become useless shells but for the rapid exchange of ideas and wealth of knowledge, it is amazing.

    I would have to say the alarm clock/modern clock… there no way i could have remembered to wind up a watch like before… without an alarm clock, i would be SOL… I certainly wouldn’t have graduated college, and with as late as i always am already, i shudder to think how much worse it could have been.

    I am most thankful for the discovery and manipulation of electric current. Without Thomas Edison’s discovery, we would not have anything that we have today. This discovery has lead to great electronic and other technological advancements from all types of engineers. Without these advancements, I wouldn’t be able to sign up for and win this giveaway.

  • The technology I’m most thankful for is clothing.  Honestly, can you imagine how much it would suck to be out in zero-degree weather, or even just the rain, without clothes. Plus, without clothes there would be a whole lot of gross naked people around.  Think of all the uggos we are protected from by clothing! 😛

  • Schwooba

    Dude…the Franklin REX is what got me excited about technology way back when. Credit card sized PDA from the 80s.

  • Matt Estrada

    I am most thankful for wireless devices. Thanks to it I have a wireless phone that streams music wireless via Bluetooth to a Jambox (if I win) to listen and share tune while riding my bike around the neighborhood. Sure you can’t beat some good ol’ wires but for certain things (especially if you want a clean look) you just can’t do with out it! 🙂

    I am most thankful for the guys and gals over at Bell Labs in New Jersey way back when they created the first cellular telephone. It was the size of 40 DROID RAZRs, but it could call without needing a car phone (or requisite large sum of money) or tracking down one of those strange glass booth things with this little stand inside that once held some piece of electronic history…ah yes – phone booths.

    To the cell phone.

    I am thankful for cell phones, because now we can talk to anyone at any time and it helps to keep us safer in case of an emergency.

  • I’m the most thankful for my eyeglasses. With them, I can gaze at my family and friends. I can see marvelous sites. I can appreciate beauty in it’s simplest form like a sunrise, or it’s complex form such as the many gears of a machine and how they come together to let us know what time it is. They have allowed me to read the works of several different authors ranging from fiction to academic nonfiction. They have given me the ability to write, create, and share. They have allowed me to see people at their strongest, and at their weakest and to appreciate the difference between the two.

    These are my glasses. There are many like them but these are mine. I’m very thankful for them.

  • Vezman

    Sadly i am most thankful for my gps without it id be lost all the time !

  • Spc Hicks09

    If I had to be thankful for a certain piece of technology to be thankful for, it would without a doubt, be the webcam. In 2009 I was deployed in Iraq for my second time and finally on this deployment, we were able to get internet hooked up at our patrol base. So finally about 6 months into a 12 month deployment, I was able to see my wifes beautiful face again and talk to my kids! I used it for family too and was happy to finally be able to see my mom as well. Yes I’m a momma’s boy, so what? Anyway, there was nothing better that I could think of than coming back to my cot from a 12 hour patrol and getting to talk to my wife and kids. Thanks for listening guys! Hooah! 25th ID!

    • Spc Hicks09

      Thanks for all the likes guys. I just want everyone to know I am not trying to get sympathy. It’s just that when you’re in a situation like that, little things means everything. 

  • I am most thankful for indoor plumbing. Without it, well, you know the rest.

  • I am most thankful for my coffee maker, because without that I wouldn’t have the life blood that I crave every day.

  • Aedwardw

  • Megan Coriale

    I was going to follow in the footsteps of JustinM, and write a little love letter to fire but instead I’ll be serious. I’m most thankful for the phone. Cell phones are nice, and I would have to make a lot of adjustments if I couldn’t text but even before the cell was available, phones allowed me to stay in touch with distant family and friends. Phones allow us to reach out and touch someone, just to say I love you. Phones bring us all closer together.

  • Xavier King

    I am most thankful for the personal computer. Without the PC, I wouldn’t be where I am today. A PC was a necessity for my schooling and is essential to my career in healthcare technology. PC’s are also a great source of entertainment and gave birth to great technology like smartphones. Without the PC, we would not have the Android smartphones and tablets we all love and which bring us to this very site to enjoy and learn from.

  • The digital camera.  Film was so oppressive.  Sure I have a gazillian photos I will probably never look at, and can disappear forever in the wink of a bad hard drive, but I never have to worry about wasting film on a bad photo.

  • I’m most thankful for my alarm clock app on my phone. It may be a bit annoying, but it’s what starts the day for me (starts it with music) and makes sure I end up to the daily activities on time!

  • Yte13

    Android, without android I’m nothing.

    Definitely the PC. It’s how I: surf the web, do my research, work on projects, stay connected with friends, check to see if the G-Nexus is good, pwn noobs, shop, listen to music, watch movies, check to see if the G-Nexus is good.

    One day phones and tablets may very well replace the PC. But it’s not today.

  • Dreamtheater993

    The piece of technology I’m most thankful for is my original Droid. In a world where technology flies at the speed of neutrinos (see what I did there?), value can be seen as how long a gadget can remain relevant. It has been 2 years since I picked up my Droid, and I haven’t felt behind the curve of cell phone technology at all. Furthermore, it turned me onto the world of Android, and I haven’t looked back since. 

  • Hasanjaved25

    I am most thankfull for capacitive touch technology on our devices. before that using a touch interface was quite a headache.

  • Rokenford

    I am most thankful for contact lenses, and by proxy glasses. Without them, I would be technically blind, and could not function productively in society. I would be relegated to manual labor that requires no precision and would not be able to enjoy reading, among my favorite pastimes.

  • Bluedevils0000

    I am most thankful for my smartphone. Over the years my phone(OG Droid nnow bionic) has become my alarm clock, my computer, my mp3 player and a carry along gaming system. Oh ya and it makes calls too. I dont know what i would do without my smartphone.

  • I am most thankful for the internet. Without it, the world we know it would not be so connected today. That is the purpose and the goal of most tech inventions or innovations today if you think about it: social networks, video games, tv, and even web sites in general (such as the comments section) bring together everyone in the world. It’s not just for business purposes as well (even though that is where technology usually gets most credit), it is a lot in personal life too: connecting families and friends from across the globe, without it we would not always be in constant contact and lose touch with each other other than a phone call. 

  • I’m most thankful for money. It let’s me eat without growing my own food.

  • Im most thankful for cellular technology, without it we wouldn’t have great sites this DL!

  • The Internal Combustion Engine!!  (I’m a little bias being a mechanical engineer and all ;-P ).  But seriously where would we be without certain modes of transportation,  mechanical operation and energy production that result from combustion engines…and to think we can take things so much further especially considering the research that is currently going on in the field (and other related fields…hybrid/electric technologies, combustion efficiency, bio-fuels, etc).  While I admit it is a relatively old technology but with the advancements made with computer processors (another awsome technology) we are able to do advanced numerical calculations, run advanced CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) programs, run complex FEA (Finite Element Analysis) programs, etc to come up with much better ways of improving combustion efficiency and energy production…

  • Already follow both on Twitter, already like Droid life on Facebook. 

    As for what piece of technology I’m most thankful for I would of course go with my phone.  I’m not only able to talk with friends or family whenever I want but I can text when I don’t feel like talking.  With the power of the internet right in my hands I can quickly and easily access everything from new workout routines and healthy recipes to the latest technology and sports news.

  • Eclectic80

    I think I’m most thankful for the refrigerator. Despite how much I love having a computer, cell phone, etc, the importance of having easily accessible fresh food just can’t be overstated. I guess you could also mention cooking food, but fire’s not really “technology.”

    I am most thankful for my OG Droid (running CM7 Nightly 253) and Android in general.  When I first got it, I was amazed.  It is a Swiss army knife of useful tools.  I had access to most of humanity’s knowledge with a few clicks.  I learned more and faster than ever.  Now I know what stars I am looking at by just pointing it at the sky.  I save more money by price checking every major purchase on location.  I can fact check and learn about topics in shows and discussions with my friends.  I use it to navigate in the car with satellite map overlays while streaming internet radio anywhere.  News, Blogs, social media, and email, all in the same device I call and text with.  I can store an entire library of books and seasons of TV in my pocket.  I game in waiting rooms, airports, etc just to pass the time or sharpen my brain with teasers.  Now I can even talk to it and get witty responses from Iris (while poking fun at iFruit’s Siri).  Then I complimented it by tethering my Hack-A-Nook.  Sure I have a desktop and laptop, but the convenience of apps and how they provide directed information in such a portable form factor is astounding.  

    I know, it’s time to replace it.  I may get the D-RAZR, or wait for the mystery Moto device with the HD screen.  However, I will always remember that my OG is what brought me into the world of intelligent portability. Eventually I also need to replace my Hack-A-Nook so I can use GTalk with Video to sign with my hard of hearing brother on his Xoom.  It’s funny how we are in the era of the Jetsons (minus the flying cars).

    Also allows me to find my wifes car quickly if something were to happen (we have a sporadic belt popping problem, so knowing exactly where she is makes the whole thing less stressful)

  • Although I am very thankful for older technologies that make the technology of today possible, currently I am most thankful for computers.

    Again, just so we’re clear, I am NOT thankful for the Pocket Fleshlight.

    I am most thankful for my Droid Bionic.  It has been a life saver in more than one situation.  It is my life line with all the Google apps that I use on a daily basis.

  • i am thankful for my droid bionic because it has helped me organize my busy college life. yes i know it has some bugs but it’s the effort that counts 

  • Most thankfull for my computer, without it none of my school work would get done.  It is a must-have! (also it lets me enter this contest!!)

  • My Audio Technica headphones for giving me the chance to listen to music, movies, and games the way they should sound…while not upsetting the neighbors 🙂

  • Koosh808

    I’d say the DVR and Smartphone… they’ve changed the way I watch TV and communicate forever.  These are devices that once you use them there’s no going back to life without them.

  • Dana S.

    I am most thankful for smartphones. It has helped organize my life in ways I could not even imagine just a few years ago.

  • I am most thankful for ebook readers. It’s always been an inconvenience to lug around a 1000+ page book without worrying about it getting all beat up and worn out too fast. Ebook readers also put less strain on your hands from holding a book open for so many hours on end. 😀

  • Swsmac

    I’m most thankful for my Samsung Galaxy S smartphone, It has given me the freedom to use media and communications in a real way. For example I can encourage someone with a Bible passage on the fly or share a uplifting song with my family and friends. I have a Mac desktop which is not getting any love, since I’ve been set free.

    I am most thankful for the internet. We use it everyday and most of us take it for granted, but having access to almost limitless information and data is astounding. Want to know how to make sweet potato pie — BAM! Need help rooting your phone — BAM! Need to buy someone a gift — BAM! Want to sell something — BAM! Want to watch a movie — BAM! Want to better understand what the doctor just diagnosed you with — BAM! 

    BAM! BAM! BAM! BAM! BAM! 

    That’s the internet, the whole reason I can even enter this AWESOME contest!  

  • Hmmm…

    I’ve thought about what technology that i’m the most thankful for and the one thing that came to mind was the OG Droid. Without that i wouldn’t be an android enthusiast or even be reading droid-life. it changed the way i saw phones and i have never wanted any other phone other than an android.

  • I’m thankful for the android smartphone.

  • Rob

    I’m most thankful for my trust old Droid Eris. Eris was my first Android device, and opened me up to the world of Android, and programming. I have since upgraded a few times, but still check back on the Eris forums to see what the great devs over there have come up with. Without my first-gen Eris, I would not be the enthusiast I am today, and certainly would not be as nerdy.

  • Calculatorwatch

    I am most thankful for the telephone. The ability to connect people thousands of miles apart has resulted in a new age of global interconnectedness, the effects of which will resound for many more years to come.

  • I’m most thankful for the internet. It may sound sad, but the internet is my whole life. Without it, this post wouldn’t exist, and I would probably be reading by candle light right now. Although it’s not one exact piece of technology, the internet is a wonderful thing. I think we can all agree on that.

  • Negativerxn

    My Original Moto Droid 1.  It has been with me through 2 different moves, and has allowed me to stay in touch with loved ones and complete all necessary tasks involved with the moves.  Access to the internet, my email, and navigation help all proved invaluable while on the go.  And when I didn’t have home internet, I was even able to tether my laptop and and XBox.  Talk about a lifesaver.  I’ve owned a few phones before this one, but I am honestly going to be sad when I have to “upgrade.”

  • Computers of course.

  • Definitely has to be high-speed internet connections.  I remember the good old days of 14.4k modem connections through AOL, where it took a few minutes for the modem to ring, the “static” noise, and finally the connection.  Then, heaven forbid someone picked up the telephone while you were connected: instant disconnect.  It is amazing to think that in the time that it now takes to buffer a streaming movie through Netflix, a 5-frame GIF would barely load up through dial-up.  

  • Adam Shoemaker

    The technology I am most thankful for is all things google.  As a grad student, I think occasionally about how difficult it would be to access the information in years past, that I can get in seconds now.  In a matter of minutes using google scholar I can find and download research that would have taken my parents weeks or months to identify and gather.  Then using google docs I am able to to work on my papers anywhere with internet, even on my phone.  No more computer crashes or freak accidents making me lose my work.Currently I’m working in an Americorps program (domestic version of the Peace Corps) where I work with youth-serving nonprofits helping them to develop the tools and process they need to measure the outcomes of their programs.  For nonprofits running on shoe-string budgets, the host of tools available for free through google docs is incredible. The ability to easily share and collaborate with these tools is great.  As I travel to go meet with these organizations I speak the destination into my phone and use google navigation to get me there, usually streaming from google music as I drive.  Google has simplified and enhanced my life, academics, and work in so many ways.  I’m thankful.

  • Downs176

    I’m thankful for my Since running CM7. Couldn’t survive without it.

  • I am most thankful for my Droid X. Ever since launch day and countless hours pouring over any new information that droid life posted, I have enjoyed being a part of the Android revolution. Coming from a WinMo phone which was updated once in the 2 years I had the device, screen stopped responding to touch, wouldn’t stay on for more than an hour, restarted multiple times every day, and was no longer functional after a year. Since I have had my Droid X, I have seen multiple upgrades to the UI and operating system, great support from websites and blogs (i.e – droidlife), and an overall great experience with this phone. While I do have my eyes on Nexus Prime, I will miss my X as it has served me well since release day.

  • JoshBoshBosh

    I am most thankful for the invention of phones in general. Wether a mobile phone or stationary one, what would our world be without it? Where would we be today? No mobile phones, no global communication, probably no internet … imagine that and be grateful that it has lead to a (mostly) enlighted society 😉

  • dantunes

    If we’re limiting it to something we can get at Best Buy, I’m most thankful for my MacBook, because it means that I don’t have to hand write exams, which is great because my writing is dreadful. If it is for any technology, I’m thankful for my allergy/asthma medication, as it has allowed me to live comfortably as long as I have.

  • Easily the transistor for me. Vacuum tubes just couldn’t cut it.

  • I’m most thankful for wireless networking.  Anything from our cell phones, TV remote, garage door openers, wifi, gps, even mice and keyboards are available in wireless.  Just kick back and think about it next time you use a wireless device.

    I am most thankful for wireless routers. I had spent many days re-wiring my home with cat3 cables way back when. Destroying drywall, fighting spiders and other creatures in the walls and attic. Inserting nifty, expensive wall outlets with power and female internet lines. Only to be outdone by a simple wireless router, rendering all my hardwork moot. Thank you wireless routers, we salute you.

    I am most thankful for WiFi Internet. Without WiFi devices without a contract or data plan would be near pointless. Of course you could use ROMs and Apps on them by downloading them on a computer and transferring them over…but a lot of the great apps need a data connection to fully perform correctly. You couldn’t catch up on any social sites or most importantly check the latest and greatest from Droid Life wherever connection was available without it. Important emails would be near impossible to keep up with when not at home or at a library. WiFi gives more opportunity to do these things..thank you WiFi…thank you.

  • jmw

    My Palm Pilot because it was awesome!

  • Jeremy Stewart

    The piece of tech I’m most thankful for is digital music and the giant market shift that it created. It began with the transition from tape to CDs. The craving to hold ever more media in your hand led to mp3s. Digital players came at a furious pace and were made with higher and higher storage capacity while getting smaller and smaller and offering more functionality and even movie playback. This was all eventually integrated into phones which morphed them into the portable media powerhouses that are showcased on sites like DL day-in day-out!

  • im

    I’m happy for my OG droid.  Even though I moved on to the Droid 3 my OG droid is still alive and kicking.  My 2yr old is learning her letter and numbers on it!  Durable as hell and still does everything I throw at it, including my 2yr old!

  • g_what

    Currently, I am most thankful for my OG Droid.

    If I win the Transformer, it will jump to #1 until I get the Nexus.

    This is a tough one,but as much as I love phones, I am most thankful for my new Dell XPS 17 more. With its 1080p display and 22W speakers (two 5W main speakers and 12W subwoofer), it plays great looks great sounds great and imo is great. Makes Droid-Life look beautiful on the web. 🙂 Maybe once i get a phone that i can have the screen on longer than an hour ill be able to fully appreciate my phone. OG Droid, make way for the Galaxy Nexus, just not yet, need you till Verizon stops being dumb!

  • Mr ilheis

    I’m thankful for the internet. Opening and expanding my horizons in so many different ways. Including but not limited to learning, communicating (ie. keeping in touch) and being able to express myself creatively, through many different channels. Thanks interwebz! 

  • I am most thankful for the computer, without them i would still be doing a log of handwritten reports and graphs

  • I’m most thankful for HTC Thunderbolt! I know everyone has their own opinions about the phone but I have NEVER had any problems with mine. Well, other than the whole restarting thing, which mine didn’t do that often, and the lack of voice mail notifications after the second to last update but no one ever calls me anyways! Regardless, I have had SO FEW problems with this phone compared to my DX, which is how I got my Tbolt in the first place.. I got 3 replacements within 4 months. The phone was awful. Now I’m an HTC girl for life 🙂

  • As far as this year goes, I am thankful Verizon is finally getting a Nexus.

  • Tom Robinson

    I know this will be a common comment here on Droid Life, but I am most thankful for my smartphone.Since I first purchased my OG Droid, and now with my Thunderbolt, and soon (hopefully) my Galaxy Nexus, my smart phone has been a positive revolution  in my life. As a nurse I routinely use Epocrates for drug information, Informed’s Critical Care ACLS Guide, and the calculator on my phone to care for patients without having to search for reference material. As a firefighter/paramedic I use CadPage and Scanner Radio Pro to receive call information. As an outdoor enthusiast I use a variety of radar programs, Google Maps, and GPS status while hiking. My phone has replaced my MP3 player, my camera, and my gaming system (Thanks Muffin Knight for the days I have lost there….) I look forward to my phone being able to replace my wallet on some level soon. I use my phone in church to follow the church readings in an online Bible. I use my bank’s app all the time to view my finances. Heck, I have even been known to use the phone as a babysitter with my son using Kid’s Mode and the variety of games I have so my wife and I can talk in peace while he plays on it! And sometimes I even make phone calls! But to shorten it up, I am truly appreciative of my Android smartphone. It has made my life simpler, faster, more organized, and a hell of a lot more fun.

  • I am most thankful for my current cell phone, the xperia play. Simply put i think that it is simply amazing this a single device is capable of replacing, to a degree, all of the electronics in my home. My TV, my laptop, my alarm clock, phone, and even a game consol are all wrapped into one device that fits into my pocket. I am waiting for that app that will let me cook a borrito on it and then It really could be the only electronic in my life. If the same minds that built our phones were to be put to use in the automotive field we would have flying cars by now. No doubt in my mind.

  • I am most thankful for my cell phone. I love android and all it has to offer me. I use my phone for work, school and keeping in touch with everyone. I would be lost without it!

    I am thankful for electricity. Without it, none of this would have come true. 🙂 Oh, and my Droid X.

  • I am most thankful for Al Gore inventing the internet.  The internet is what enables our unbelievable levels of communication that we have today.  Without it, we would still be talking as fast as we can in hopes of not racking up heavy long distance fees.  Now with the internet, our phones can summon someone’s live face to talk to, for free, anytime.  No long distance.  It’s a wonderful time to be alive, and I can’t wait to see what the next 20 years brings!

    • Just kidding about Al Gore, but the internet is inarguably the most important human achievement that I’ve seen in my lifetime…

    the technology that I am most thankful for is cell phones in general. I know most people are thankful for their “one or two” phones, but in reality, they are ALL are amazing feats in science. With out telephones, we would be still communicating with letters and carrier pigeons. Cell phones are getting more and more impressive. If i HAD to narrow it down, i would say that I am most thankful right now for my DX! (I would love a transformer though 🙂 )

  • I would have to say the internet is the one piece of technology I am thankful for.  As someone who was born in the early 80’s, I saw a portion of my life without the internet so I am able to respect it for something that wasn’t always around but was born recently enough to really engrave it into my life.

    Video Calling… being able to keep in touch with family & friends you can’t see often visually is waaay better than a phone call… 

  • Definitely my Droid. Even though it is older (OG) with a fresh paint job (new ROM) it still is by far the most useful device I own. I have work and play email, calendars and docs. Streaming talk radio is absolutely wonderful. Still so functional after almost 2 years.

  • Tsteege

    I am most thankful for my old Radio Shack TRS-80 Model 4 computer.  If it wouldn’t have been for her (yes I know, nerd alert) I would have never gotten into programming and ultimately into my career.  By the way, I still have “her” and she still runs.  I love it when my 13 yr old son, boots it up and says, “Really Dad!”

    • Tsteege

      LOL, now you can emulate 1981 technology on your Droid.  Sweet…

      http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VbsNsBUfrrU

      Why???  Just because you can!

    • my earliest computer memories were on a TRS-80 CoCo with a whopping 4K of memory. The first thing my dad did was “upgrade” to 16K & then soon thereafter to 32K by jumpering two 16K memory cards together. Program saving was by audio cassette and you had to pray to God that you had the volume set correctly or you were hosed. I still write “go to” as “goto” due to the millions of times I had to use it while programming in BASIC. Good Times….

      • Tsteege

        LOL goto, that is way to funny

        10 cls
        20 print “hello”
        30 goto 20

        Oh, back in the day.

        I remember going from the cassettes to my first 5 1/4″ floppy.  It was amazing how fast things saved.  Don’t forget the 300 baud modems and bulletin boards.  Sometimes I miss it…

      • Raven

        Historically, I would have to agree. My TRS-80 CoCo 2, which came with a whopping 16k, started my path to a career in the computer field which, of course, lead to my love of Android. Thus making the piece of technology that I am currently most thankful for, my Droid 2

        • Tsteege

          About a year ago I bought a grey CoCo, CoCo 2, and CoCo 3 with all the books and a bunch of Rainbow magazines off ebay for $45.  I have a mini TRS-80 museum in home office, and they all work.  I would have to agree, Android has sparked my interest like my first PC did, just way faster.  LOL!

  • I’m definitely most thankful for my Droid 2. (And I’m not just saying that because this is a Droid site. I love my phone!)

    It’s an older Android phone, but it still rocks. It provides me with hours of entertainment, GPS navigation, a mobile center of all the knowledge the internet has to offer, a flashlights, a camera/camcorder, an alarm clock, a watch, a stopwatch, a timer, and so much more! It’s amazing! I really have no idea how I lived without it.

  • This is sappy, but the piece of technology I am most thankful for is Skype and video chat. My father-in-law is out of the country often and through video chat, my daughter knows him. They talk and make faces at each other and he got to watch her first steps. It is the first time I felt a personal impact from technology.

  • DroidVoid

    Definitely thankful for the whole smartphone thing.  The fact that you can do things from it now that before the lack of technology made it so that you had to be a specific place (in an office, at a computer, in front of a tv) at a specific time is chain breaking and I enjoy the freedom it gives you.

    Most thankful for smartphones and Android in general.  I couldn’t imagine how I lived even 5 years ago.. disconnected from everything.  Crazy.

    Side question:  How does liking Droid Life on facebook count as a chance?  I mean how do you tally that crowd?  Just simply enter every single person that likes Droid Life at the end of the contest?  I’ve liked Droid Life for a long time, does that mean I’m entered into every contest that operates like that?  Have been curious about this through these contests.
