One minute writer: What's the most useful tool you own?

Most people don't think of their computer as a tool, but it is. Mine helps me to keep track of my finances, write letters, contact friends, play games, plan TV watching, read books, practically everything. I couldn't live without it. It's certainly the most useful tool in my box. (Though you can't undo screws with them!)

I couldn't agree more about your use full tool.
And I like the idea of the one minute writer.

Hi Ann .. absolutely agree ... though I'm feeling like a ship out of water - now I no longer get the comment subscription feeds in my inbox - which Google seems to have arbitrarily cancelled.

Cheers and just hope they come back .. gloomy down here! - Hilary

The Personal Computer is a Swiss Army tool,which has many software tools on it. We also use 'computers' for endless other embedded tasks,such as running a car's engine management system and getting cash from a hole in the wall, playing a horrible jingle on a greetings card, paying for goods at the store checkout etc. But I expect you are thinking of the PC, the most useful tool?
The spell checker!

Wow, where would I be without mine, or I should say two computers. I have a laptop for the internet and my desktop for my book & family history. Ever since see Star Trek as a small child on my dad's knee I've wanted a computer. Back in the 60's computers had all the answers and could do anything.

My two computers have talking Dictionary which have helped me with my spelling and pronunciation. One small step for mankind one giant leap for a dyslexics...

My laptop, no question.

Obviously auto correct is not the most useful tool in the computer. My earlier comment, "useful" was changed to use full. But, I've seen it do worse.

More 'life-support' than mere tool - mine would be the poorer without its ability to link one to other like-minded folk in many many ways.
