    We perhaps should start a "gateway drug thread" for tech.

    For me, generally the first was an Apple IIGS
    For phones- the original Moto Razr
    For tablets- The original surface pro

    So far I've resisted the siren call of smartwatches, but that's probably just a matter of time.... :)

    And my daughter tells me that Tech Addiction is a recognized thing....

    I have Samsung Gear Sport smartwatch because I got sold on the idea of FitBit(for size and health tracking features) and Garmin(GPS and health tracking). Gear Sport ultimately won due to the bright amoled display, but did try out a Garmin VivoActive 3, which has a great breadcrumbing feature when using GPS.

    Gateway for me was an Osborne with dual 512K floppies!

    Sounds similar to the Hardware of Yore topic from a while back. I'm pretty sure the gadgets submitted would end up being the same... at least for us older tech-addicts.

    Yes, much like conversations in a nursing home ward, all stories eventually lead to the same place.

    Any information on availability of this and where to buy one? Thinking of getting it if it's considerably cheaper than the mini.

    No, this is not the Galaxy Tab A plus.
