Toys for Techos

Most of us propeller heads love technology toys. The real test of kinship with the glorious granfalloon of dweebs and dweebettes is simple. Do your eyes light up at the thought of a cool new GUI widget or a 3-D video card driving a 21-inch flat-screen monitor or a gigahertz laptop with a 20 gig hard drive? Are you one of those who cannot wait to get your hands on the beta release of every new product that appears? Do you find yourself ripping off shrink-wrap to see if release 2.0 finally solves the problems of 1.1?

One of the payoffs for delivering your software in time might be to get on the beta test panel for someone else's new software. Or maybe the first copies of a new CASE tool or the newly purchased development suite go to members of the team that performed the best last quarter. Teams that deliver on promises might get first dibs on delivery of the next round of hardware upgrades.
