    Home Office Folks - What Electronics Do You Have Within Arms Reach?
    I thought this would be cool to know, as, in my case, if I had a stove, I wouldn't have to move.

    My Boat Anchor Pooter of Course.
    Printer / Fax / Copier
    TV
    Stereo
    Small Fridge
    Coffee Pot
    Microwave
    Playstation 2
    Cable / Internet Converter
    Phone

    I'll die Fat and Ha.... Well, probably just FAT!

    laptop on a Tablemate, remotes for the TV, the AC, and the radio/CD player. Cordless telephone also. (We have a cell phone, but only really use it when we leave the house.) Our printer, which I almost never need, is networked into my laptop, but it's in the other room.

    Does the old cat who perches on the back of the chair across from me count??

    Look, I am not kidding!

    I've a big screen monitor, so I can watch TV, listen to radio, see videos, hear tunes, print, copy, etc.. with just two fingers, while I use part of the screen for web stuff at the same time.

    I don't use phones, or eat at my desk, so I don't need any of the other electronics stuff, you use.

    Within arm's reach while sitting at my desk:
    - my computer (with two monitors)
    - computer printer
    - home phone, cell phone

    I have to actually stand up to use the air conditioner or fan. To use a microwave, I have to walk down the hall.

    I am planning to buy my first Amazon Kindle book today, to read on the iPhone.

    I forgot that the occasional bathroom break is necessary.

    Don't have that here.

    Since a working Microwave too close to a computer, can cause a lot of interference...

    I thought you was using the Microwave, for the occasional bathroom break.
