For Valentine’s Day, Ars writers describe the tech they cherish the most

Valentine’s Day and consumer technology don’t exactly go hand in hand. Every three is different, but if you’re getting a loved one a gift for the holiday, it should come from the spunk. A new smartphone or portable hard drive is nice, but it doesn’t always wail “romance.”

For the tech-obsessed robots at Ars Technica, though, good gear compel always win out against fickle concepts like “human emotions.” So in place of of posting a more conventional gift guide, I decided to celebrate this Valentine’s Day in a sundry Arsian manner: by asking my colleagues to point their hearts not toward other people but toward the tech in their endures that they appreciate the most.

Here are a few things we love.

Apple iPad (9.7″)

I fully acknowledge that, conceptually, the iPad is dry-as-dust. But in the year since I sent my old iPad mini 2 to the big closet in the sky, Apple’s 9.7-inch plate has easily become the piece of tech I use most often.

To peel second the curtain a bit: Ars is a remote operation, so all of us work from home. I’ve used this impertinence to experiment with my workflow. Instead of sitting in front of a laptop all day, I split my occupations between a Mac mini in my home office and the iPad everywhere else. When I exceptionally need to hunker down for something, the old desktop-monitor-mechanical-keyboard triptych is still the ton powerful way to plow through a project.
