Technology In The Home.

    I was just thinking about how much technology has not only taken over the workplace but also the home so started thinking about how much tech we have and if it's over the top.

    There's two of us that live here and we currently use :-

    3 TV's
    2 Sky HD Boxes
    A BT TV box
    1.1m motorised satellite dish system
    3 Laptops
    2 Smartphones
    eBook reader
    Amazon Fire Stick
    Nvidia Shield TV
    Media PC (Brix)
    Server (HP Proliant ML110) running VMware for 3 VM's with 9.5tb storage.
    ComputeStick PC

    that's not counting the games consoles, Raspberry pi's and other stuff we have lying around that we don't currently use.

    Admittedly I'm a bit of a tech geek and spend a lot of time stuck at home but is that excessive or does everyone have way too much tech these days?

    It is truly shocking when you add up the number of "computers" you now have in your home personally I have A laptop, A very old desktop (for some reason I can never bring myself to take it to the tip), A smart phone, Two tablets (one crappy and due to be binned once I pull some photos off it, and I suppose if you are counting consoles I have PS3 and PS4 ready to go, that's just things I own (I end up shoring families members stuff for some reason) and consider a form of computer.
