This week, we told you about a teen who got his Xbox taken away. Hardly an unusual occurrence, to be sure. Only it wasn't a parent or teacher who made this 13-year-old surrender his gaming console.
It was a judge who wanted to teach the youngster a lesson about what it felt like to have something of value taken away.
The Irish teen, you see, is being charged with a series of burglaries. When the judge asked him which of his possessions meant the most to him, he cited his Xbox. Thus, the unusual and very modern-day punishment.
The story got us wondering. Which gadget would you miss most if forced to give it up by a judge/teacher/parent/sister/brother/significant other/superhero?
More importantly, perhaps, given that today's gadgets enable everything--calling, texting, playing games, networking, streaming movies, searching, GPS navigating, and just about anything else you could think of--which tech-related activity would you feel most lost without?
