I need a new word. Gadgetopia is close, but its more like technophoria, or compxiety. Its that nebulous place that we gadget freaks inhabit just after we get the "Your laptop just shipped" email and when the doorbell actually rings. Its the state of being that makes you seriously sit down and think about writing a screen scraper in Ruby to watch the FedEx tracking page to fire an RSS notification that the ship has left the dock in Freeport. Its a real state of mind, but the question is, do we have a word to make it really real yet?
