If you had to give up all but one gadget this Thanksgiving, what would it be?

Let's be honest, folks. We are a bunch of geeks. Don't get me wrong. I don't mean that in a negative way. It's just that the human race has been shaped so dramatically by technology that gadgets seem to have become a way of life. Cell phones. GPS's. Digital cameras. iPhones. iPods. iPads. Ay ay ay!

You might in fact define your geekiness by the number of gadgets you own, from your smart phone right down to the USB flash drive you keep on your key chain, because, hey, you never know when you just might need to transfer a digital file.

But tomorrow is not about gadgets. Tomorrow is about family and friends and good old-fashioned togetherness. Gadgets have no part of the Thanksgiving tradition. Yet, for many of us, the thought of leaving home without our laptop or iPad might be too hard to swallow (not counting the oddly colored mash that your great great aunt brings to the table). How will you survive Thanksgiving without your gadgets???

Well, what if we make a deal? Rather than quitting cold turkey, what if you could have one of your beloved gadgets with you? If you had to give up all but one gadget for Thanksgiving, what one would it be, and why?

And while you ponder that food for thought, I'd like to wish everyone a healthy and happy Thanksgiving holiday!!!
