Gadgets Are you a gadget person? Answered by Susan Lyne , Gilt Groupe   My BlackBerry is my best friend. I honestly don't know how I lived without a BlackBerry because I am  not a phone person. I mean, I hate getting calls at home. I've never been someone who liked to chat on the phone. I'd  rather not take calls at the office if I don't have to, and a BlackBerry is such an efficient way to communicate. You don't  have to do the five minutes of chatter at the beginning. You don't have to make the lunch date. It's just a wonderful  thing. This answer originally appeared in Want to Talk to the Chief? Book Your Half-Hour »   Are you a gadget person? Answered by Brian Dunn , Best Buy   I'm a gadget freak. I love my gadgets and I've got to tell you why. Many pundits will write that we need  to go back into a quieter and simpler time and the technology is separating us. I think that actually the technology  brings us together, if we use it right. We can become prisoners to it if we don't. I want to give you a real-life example.  My sons are big basketball freaks. My wife, too. So I'm in London and I can't sleep. It's 4 in the morning, so I go on  NBA.com and I'm watching the Lakers and Utah game. And all of a sudden my little Skype video chirps, and it's my  three sons on their computer talking to me and they're whispering. I said, "Why are you guys whispering?" And it's  about 11 at night back home. They said, " 'cause Mom will kick our ass if she knows that we're up." And so I said: "Well  if she walks in the room, click me off, man. Don't let her know I'm part of it." But I'm sitting there watching the game  with the boys and the only thing I can't do is put my arm around them. I'm on the road 100 days a year, so those  moments are really important.
