Updated with Day 2
This year, Microsoft changed things up and decided to hold two Mobius events back to back. The first one was held in Thailand, and the second one here in the US. Typically, the events here in the US have always been held in Seattle, WA., near Microsoft's Redmond headquarters. But this year they opted for Boston, MA. Lucky for me, I was invited to the Boston event. This meant a short 2hr flight, instead of 4-5 hours to Seattle.

Greetings from Nashville, Tennessee where the weather is great and the people are friendly! I'm Kerry and yes, I am a gadgeteer. My friends think because of my Asian roots that it is my cultural duty to perpetuate the Asian stereotype with gadgets in hand, which I don’t deny… just visit Las Vegas during a Consumer Electronics Show. For me it is almost like having a Roots experience. I've graduated from anything with a power cord attached to wireless and battery powered gadgets.

Gadgets... look in the dictionary and my picture is next to the
definition. I sometimes say that as long as I keep my hat on, the
propeller from the top of my head won't show too much. ;)

My name is Torsten, and I have a problem. Too many have suffered
around me, and it is time I come forward and admit it. I am a
gadgeteer. I have been called one publicly, and I must repent.

Name: Kin Yu Location: Hong Kong Hong Kong, to me and a lot of my neighbors here, is a microcosm of all that is hectic and stressful. Americans would most likely compare it to New York. Having lived and worked in Washington DC and traveling extensively to New York, I can only say that Hong [...]

I bought a used CLIE NX70v on eBay a few weeks ago for AU$200 because I wanted a PDA that I could use at school to enter data with. I recently trimmed down to just carrying an imate SP5 smartphone (very similar to the SP5m reviewed on The-Gadgeteer) which is fantastic as a phone and [...]

I remember going to school with the first electronic pen watch, pen calculator (stolen from me by a classmate, an event I haven't got over yet), programmable calculator (a Texas Instrument [...]

Name: Alan Ng Location: Singapore Hi! I'm Alan from Singapore. I'm 21 years old now. First, I have to say that I'm a gadget freak. My primal obsession with gadgets has made me spend lots of money on them. (Sometimes my mom nags me for that.) Currently on my inventory list, I have gadgets from [...]

Name: Ruth Bygrave Location: Ipswich, UK My Gadgetary Life… …is a bizarre combination of thrift and extravagance. On the one hand, I've only just gone this year from a succession of nameless mongrel PC clones to a pedigree box (Dell); on the other hand, I'm the only person I know with 32mb of memory in [...]

Julie's comments are in Black, Judie's are in Blue and italicized. Mobius 2005 was held at the Edgewater Inn in Seattle, Washington this year, and other than a jaunt to race go-karts at Champs on the second evening, we were predominantly on the 3rd floor of the hotel most of the time. The first night [...]

My Windows to Mac OS X odyssey started way back in the Spring of 2002, during the heyday of Apple's Switch campaign. A friend at work had given me a demo of his Titanium Powerbook, and it wasn't long after that I placed my own order for a G4 TiBook. Once it arrived, I was [...]

Name: Rodrigo Bezares Location: Mexico City My name is Rodrigo Bezares, I'm 19 and I'm from Mexico City. My story as a gadgeteer began some years ago, when I saw a Sony Clie NR70V featured in a Magazine, and after I read all the things that device could do, I bought it, and since I [...]
