My heart rate monitor watch. Other than a cell and computer you don't really need much.

Technically my pacemaker, though I don't think that's quite what you had in mind.

My tablet is a computer, so may not count, but I'd say it is next (functions as an ereader and TV in addition to its computer roles. After it, my TV.

Define electronic. Does that include the lights in the house? Water heater, air conditioner, refrigerator? How about my car -- it's a hybrid?

Xbox 360 and TV in combination. Don't ever really use one without the other, minus the occasional local news.

I mean, I could live without them, but I'd choose not to.

My TV. One of those smart TVs with Wifi and internet connections for streaming and music.

The fridge? It's always running and I open and close it a lot... Don't judge me, you know you do too.

My Nook. I rarely leave home without it.

Xbox 360. Gets used almost daily. Gaming, Netflix, Hulu.

Home theater receiver. It is used for music, movies, games; pretty much everything I enjoy doing in my free time.

I use my Nespresso espresso machine multiple times a day, but I also use my e-reader every day, so it's a toss up. After that, it's my Neato. I'd hate to be without any of them.

@philosopherott: You have an electronic light switch? Or do you use LED lighting? Or are you referring to the electronic ballast in your CFL bulbs?

digital wristwatch. I feel naked without it.

I probably actually use my home entertainment receiver more hours than any single computer. After that for hours of use would be my TV, the computer that runs my entertainment center, and my tablet. The microwave is in there for frequency of use, but not duration. After that probably my sansas. Cell phone is way, way down the list, I only make and receive 3-4 personal calls a week, and they are rarely more than a couple of minutes long. I don't text, or use my phone for other functions. I probably use my GPS more time in a week than my phone.

Although, if we are just going for straight up hours of use, I think the ocean wave white noise generator I run all night, every night, 365 days a year; and the bedroom clock I rely on 24/7 are the true winners.

bluetooth headphones. I slap them on in the morning and listen to music all day without having to worry about my rolly chair trying to eat the cord. Charge them when I leave at night. Rinse and repeat.

My PS3. Games, Netflix, it's a nice one stop shop so to speak.

I think mine is a toss up between the Kindle or TV. Really depends on the day/season.

I got my 120gb ipod 5 years ago. It is my first and only mp3 player, and while it can't hold all of my music, I've created ~500 playlists, and listen to a couple hours or more on most every day. I use it with headphones, or a small portable dock w/speakers, or plug into home theatre or car stereo. My ipod is almost done weening me from cd's, and if rightwingers are correct about the slippery slope of gay-marriage, I may consider wedding this marvel of technology!

Humm, tough question:

The one that is with me the most is actually my Fitbit. There all day, and on at night when I remember and am not feeling too lasy. Besides that, I'd say the TiVo.

My noise generator for bed. I don't miss much about growing up in the country, but I do miss the noises from the woods, so the generator helps me sleep.

Except this last time I went to my parents there were loud owls in the woods keeping me up. Stupid owls.

I just realized that I could, quite easily, live without most of my electronic gadgets.

Though, the first thing to pop into my head was: garage door opener.

Haha, once you've eliminated the all-reaching phones and the computers, all I've got are the digital hygrometers in my cigar humidors!

There are other electronics?

vote-for3vote-against

My iPod. I've got a seven year old iPod Photo that is still going strong (I did replace the battery last month). I use it every day for music at work, in the car, around the house and at the gym. I have no idea how I would get through my workouts without it. Music keeps me moving during cardio and podcasts get me through weights.

electronic ballasts on cfls.

The OP asked what electronic device we "couldn't live without." So far, @baqui63 has the only entry!

There's no electronic device that I couldn't live without, but my portable TENS unit improves my quality of life.

@cengland0: I was meaning the same category that stores like Best Buy and Amazon use.

vote-for3vote-against

@qphaze: when i go to bestbuy.com i don't see a top-level category for "electronics." i do see one for "appliances," though. when i go to "amazon.com" i see an "electronics and computers" department, and under that i see "appliances" and from there i can order a refrigerator. i use the fridge every day, it is always plugged in and is always working, 24/7, to keep stuff cold. so i guess i'll change my answer to "refrigerator."

Excluding a phone or computer, I have no "gadgets" that I couldn't live without. However, I don't consider things like microwave ovens or alarm clocks as "gadgets". Sue me if I got the intent of the question wrong. My attorney firm is Dewey, Cheatem and Howe.
