    I did'nt watch the whole video you posted but it was funny to watch part of it and see how much computers have evolved! This can also make us wonder about how much it will still evolve in some years...

  4. Hi Folks,

    Just wanted to say hello to all of you - so please pass this message on to everyone in the group. I guess I have two gadgets I can't live without:

    1) My iPhone
    2) My Asus Eee Netbook

    Both very small, both connected and both with good battery life so I can stay up-to-date all day while I'm moving around. Good to read all your thoughts...

  6. Hello Gabriel:
    Great essay!!! What a good topic, you're right, computers are a fantastic gadget. It's funny to see how friendly they have become in a very short time. I remember when people like me , fought with DOS operative system. Windows changed the whole thing. I'm still waiting for a really light notebook, not more than one kilo.

  11. Hello, Gabriel. Congrats on your post. I agree that computers are one of the most useful gadgets for teenagers, but in Argentina I think mobile phones are more useful and popular than computers because they are cheaper, easy to use and connect. I will ask my students to leave their comments in your blog soon, so you will see what local teens think about it.

  14. Hi from downunder Australia.

    I pretty much agree with your article. Nowadays, kids and teenagers are becoming used to with this kind of compact tools/toys rather than playing old-fashioned games we played in the last decades. What's most interesting to them is its size and its multi-fuctions such as PSP games, IPODS, and so on. I have no wonder why teenagers are so drooling to own one of them.

  18. Hi, I would like to comment on computers. It is a very useful device in 21 century, because teen agers in developed countries use computers to do their studies, specially under graduates chat with their lectures being at home. But as I am from a developing country I feel it is not very much higher the coputer technology with our students.
    As a conclution I would like to say computer is an essential gadget for worlwide teenagers nowadays.
