Are you a gizmo freak?
What gadgets do you possess?
I have everything that is available in the market. Right from a laptop to palmtop and i-Pod, you name it.
Which is your latest priced possession?
It would be the palmtop which supports Windows and doubles as a touch-screen phone.
Do you think gadgets have made our lives simpler?
Yes, definitely. Take this mobile phone for instance. If I do not have this, you would have called me on my landline number, where I may not have been available. Now, you can access me anywhere and I can respond.
Which is the one discovery (in gadgets) without which you think life would have been impossible?
I do not think life would have been impossible, but if you still insist to know, I think it would be a cell phone.
Where do you access your email ... on phone or on the laptop?
I carry my laptop even to my shoots so I check my e-mail whenever I want to. Look, I'm not a software engineer to need to check my e-mail all the time, but in an emergency, I will certainly use my mobile phone.
Would you like to call yourself techno savvy? How important is it to be techno savvy in today's world?
No, I would not call myself techno savvy but I keep myself updated with whatever new comes in the market.
There are a lots of complicated gadgets, and they are expensive too. What do you have to say about them?
Look, you should buy a gadget only if you think it will be of good use to you. There are people who have a lot of money to spend, so they go and buy the expensive ones.
Do you think the whopping price tags of gadgets today are justified?
A company has to cater to all types of customers, so you cannot blame them for the price tag. Nokia makes cheap as well as high-priced mobiles and there are takers for the high-priced ones too.
Modern gadgets have made us rely on them completely. Comment on the issue?
No, we use gadgets but do not rely on them. We were doing good without gadgets, too.
Where do you usually buy your gadgets and gizmos from? Any suggestions for our readers...
I suggest that if you are buying an expensive gadget, you should go and find out the price at different places because the retailer margin varies from one shop to another. I would also suggest that one should go and buy them from bigger showrooms since they procure in bulk and offer great discounts. Even I do so.
