    Default I have never owned...

    What technology don't you have?

    Because I have never owned a phone (not just a cell phone, any phone), a car, or had wi-fi in my own home. I could have and chose not to.
    Anime is a lot like sex. Done right it's a beautiful act of creation that brings a little more light into the world. If it's sick and wrong... it's even better.

    I have never owned a smart phone. My old cell phone is good enough for me, considering I only use it to call long distance, in an emergency, or while traveling. Other than that, I find it useless.

    Technology and I are enemies going way back.

    Phone: That's seriously limiting. A lot of online websites (banks, shopping, email, online services) demand a phone number.
    Car: Do you live in the States?
    Wi-Fi: Do you just connect a network cable to your router?

    I never imagined both of you have this in common. What do you guys spend your money on?

    ---

    I have never owned... Well, I have owned a Kindle, Alexa (my family owned it and lost it very soon after), an iPhone, an iPad, androids, VR gaming set, mechanical keyboard, more than 3 different video game consoles and their controllers, refunded a roomba, and refunded a 360 camera.

    I have never owned a smart watch, one of those quadcopters, a Raspberry PI, Arduino, hoverboard, or a 3D printer. They're on the bucket list.... for when I get around to it.

    A driver's license. I get distracted quite easily, so I won't get one. I do not mind public transport either way, so it is nothing too horrible.

    In some cities, you will never need a car. The trains in New York will get you to where you are going faster without a car. Chicago has a great transit system as well, not just the trains but the buses are reliable.

    I've never owned a smart tablet (iPad/android tabloids). Never had the interest since the smartphone/PC does anything just as good or better.

    Ditto here. Somewhere I read that under-30's prefer old fashion books. Kindles are preferred by those middle aged.

    Sometimes it makes sense to get an inexpensive tablet so as not to kill the phone. If you spend a lot of time on the road - a tablet is a handy thing. But if we talk about reading books, then I prefer to take an e-book with me - it is light and thin, and at the same time holds thousands of books - you can read any one according to your mood.

    I've never owned a watch. Always used my cellphone to tell the time, which I feel is probably more common these days. I've also never owned a car or house, and with the state of the economy I'd be surprised if I ever do lol

    Same for me, except for my provisional. I end up watching the clouds, fields, trees, people walking about, etc. Much prefer to just sit on the bus or train and listen to music for the journey

    I've never owned any apple products. They're always missing bits and pieces that you have to pay extra to get. And they're expensive as it is.
