I'll be the first to admit that I often invest a disproportionate amount of time analyzing hardware and software. I've recently caught myself dicking around with Android for a couple days. Seriously, a couple days....hours spent trying to see if I "like" an OS.
I've been the first to jump on bandwagons of apps too and spent time analyzing which email or calendar or messaging app is best. I'm getting really tired of this (my wife even more so) and have recently stepped back and asked myself why bother. Furthermore, I realized it was extending my workdays and wasn't the best use of my time whatsoever. Forget the time spent blogging.....I'm not really that good at review posts anyway.
Ultimately tools are just that...tools. They are there to help you get your job done. It's all about the outcome. No one in hindsight gives a shit if you used this app or that hardware to get a job or project done. Have you ever really cared what was used to make the chair you are sitting on? Ever discussed what machine built your car or its parts? No? I haven't either. The case is the same for the product you are producing at your job. It's all about the results. We are coming into a wonderful age where computers, smartphones and online services are very commoditized. I see this as a huge benefit and a major timesaver since you really can't choose "wrong". A product or service may have drawbacks verses its competitor but you can still get shit done.
True, we are all geeks at heart and we love to discuss the benefits of iOS vs Android or Mac vs PC or nowadays...all the rage...electric vs gas (see Tesla debacle recently!) What a time drain! Again, I've done this all myself and of course it's fun to debate. Nevertheless I feel that so many people have made it a sport to become fanboys of whatever new product or service they have at hand. You don't necessarily sit around talking with people how to make your product better or how to win that new customer or what management can do to make working conditions more fun. These are the things I want to spend my time on. Expect far less of me on the technology debate front.
Now, on the other hand, those Google Glass things are really cool........:-)
