Fun Tech Fact Questions & Answers:  

Q: Mainstream tech device you can’t live without? Why?  

A: This one is tough!! I equally love my Apple Watch and AirPods Pro. I use them both constantly--always in need of hands-free communication and more sleep as a working mom to young kids! I can do everything from my watch and drown out the world (and get more sleep!) if necessary with my 'pods! 

Q: What was your first cell phone?  

A: My first cell phone was a Nokia 3310. I remember thinking it was so cool that it could access the internet--only select sites, I think, and very slowly! 

Q: What mainstream tech device is at the top of your wish list, or what new tech can you not get enough of?  

A: Either a new tablet or laptop over the next year or so! What should I buy? I love my MacBook Air so generally just upgrade with the latest and greatest! 

Q: If you were a mainstream tech device, what would you be, and why?  

A: I'd lean towards the watch again for the all the reasons I love it--multi-function, wellness, and just in general keeping me on track!
