Comment: Of course techies are going to favor gadgetry... (Score 1) 519 519

Personally, I like maps:

1) They're fun to read.
2) They're reliable. I don't want to worry about batteries, cellphone signals and fragile gadgetry wile I'd driving the back roads of northern Nevada.
3) They help me connect with the local landscape. I actually have to *think about where I am*.
