Technology - for Carnival of Genealogy #43
Hardware: I would have to say that it would be my printer. Mine is getting dated, and I really need to replace it, but it's still working, and I don't really want to spend another $100 when it is working fine.
Software: Legacy Family Tree. I have used several different ones and have installed trials of others. In the long run, I always come back to it. I'm glad that I waited to get into genealogy until software programs were available, but I made the mistake of starting out on a very limited program.
Web Site/Blog: Janice has already chosen mine, but it was what I was intending to use, so I'm sticking with it--Google. Google is more than a search engine. I don't use their blog reader because I use another online one. I have used Picasa, their photo software. I love their books! Google Earth is another application they have. I'm not a huge fan of their applications (Google Docs, spreadsheets, etc.) but I'd use them in a pinch. They are just limited in their capabilities. I use their Gmail and Blogger. I've recently signed up for Google analytics. I'll see how it compares with others.
Runner-ups: My digital camera in the hardware category. Paint Shop Pro in the software category. Ancestry.com in the web site category. (I hate to use a subscription site, but the truth is that my third and fourth choices would also fall into the subscription category as well.)
