One of the most convenient and interesting technologies available is the good old DVD. One can watch a DVD on either TV or on your computer. OK, it's not a big deal to most people, but it sure is convenient.
And some social networking sites have a bad rep, but my daughter finds it convenient for keeping in touch with her high school classmates.
There's that word again: convenient. Since I am not born to be a geek, I harbor the quaint notion that technology is supposed to be a convenience that makes other parts of our life easier. I do not normally see technology as an end in itself.
