Steve blogged this (http://blogs.msdn.com/stevecla01/archive/2008/05/09/a-field-guide-to-geek-types.aspx) from Wired (http://www.wired.com/culture/lifestyle/magazine/16-04/st_geekster)

So which one are you?

1. The Fanboy
2. The Music Geek
3. The Gamer
4. The Gadget Guy
5. The Hacker
6. The Otaku

Me thinks I am …  :-|
4. The Gadget Guy
Disposition: Sociable while waiting in line on launch day; ferocious in comments on Gizmodo. Seemingly unflappable in the face of early adopter’s remorse (aka Apple Newton Syndrome).
Beliefs: I can fix that. There’s no god but MacGyver. The price will drop in a month, but I need it now.
Turn-Ons: Unboxing videos. Backup batteries. Blue LEDs. Laser pointers. People who RTFM. Things that make loud clicking sounds.
