In a British survey held recently, washing machines, the Internet, e-mails and broadband wifi were listed among the top gadgets and technologies that changed people's lives and which they couldn't imagine living without today. Seeing this, we at SWAG decided to hold our own little survey, asking a few well-known faces (and voices) what technology they could never give up.

  RODNEY GAUCI - TV PERSONALITY

RODNEY GAUCI - TV PERSONALITY malta,  I couldn't live without my: phone, smart watch, exercise tracking bracelet and voice control in my car. I think  many  basic abilities have faded away since gadgets came along. A case in point is   keeping calm when someone is late and doesn't answer his or her phone. Life is so easy these days: I don't even need to   put my hand down my trousers' pocket to fetch my phone when I receive a message - I can read it on my smart watch! Technology has also made us   expect more of others too. We think people   should read their e-mails all the time, as if everyone is on 3g or 4g all the time. We   expect that people are always on the other end of a Facebook chat. E  ven norms have changed: I   never took photos of my food before... I've   never told the world useless things like: "I'm eating a burger"... and people 'like' it! N  owadays its simply unacceptable if a restaurant is not equipped with wifi, we ask for the password before our drink. And finally, I can't   park a car without parking sensors anymore...

  MALCOLM GALEA - WRITER, ACTOR & COMEDIAN

MALCOLM GALEA - WRITER, ACTOR & COMEDIAN malta,  I cannot live without air conditioning in my car. Now I can get to where I want to go without big sweat-patches on my armpits. Not only that, but the cold also gives me nice, well-defined nipples so it’s a double win. Before I had air conditioning in my car I would sticky-tape ice cubes to by armpits before leaving the house. I still do that nowadays but because I want to – not because I have to.

EDWARD HERRERA - NATIONAL TEAM FOOTBALLER malta,  I can probably live without anything apart from food and water. But the most important electronic device to me is my computer because I store all my information on it. That reminds me... I need to do a back-up some time soon!

  THEA SALIBA - SINGER & LEGAL ADVISOR

THEA SALIBA - SINGER & LEGAL ADVISOR malta,  I can't live without my iPhone of course! It’s got everything I need; e-mails, instant messaging, a web browser and social media applications that allow me to keep in touch with my friends and family. It also has a fantastic camera which enables me to take snapshots of my favourite moments wherever I may be (thus not having to carry my main camera around), all my appointments and meetings are stored in my calender and reminders, and it also stole my iPod’s role! Moreover, I have some very good apps regarding laws which I find very handy for my profession. Other apps which I love are the fashion apps which keep me updated on the latest fashion trends, and health and yoga apps... So basically, whatever I need is just a click of a button away!

  DAVID 'OZI' BORG - RADIO PERSONALITY & DJ

DAVID 'OZI' BORG - RADIO PERSONALITY & DJ malta,  I would have to say my mobile/tablet is the thing that I could not really live without. I am the sort of person who gets bored and frustrated very easily and I have a very active mind, so when in a situation such as being stuck in traffic or waiting in a queue, or on the ferry to Gozo, I need to have something to distract me. The mobile or tablet are perfect for reading or games...

  JASON ZAMMIT - RADIO PERSONALITY & DJ

JASON ZAMMIT - RADIO PERSONALITY & DJ malta,  I would be lying if I told you that I could live without my smartphone, so I suppose that is the one gadget I truly need to survive. As much as I opposed it's integration into my life for as long as I could, it has truly become a part of me, so much so that I often dread the thought of ever parting ways with it. I often ponder what would be worse, my wallet being stolen or my smartphone. The latter always wins. There are other gadgets that have had their time to shine in the rays of my short attention span, like my tablet or HDTV - which I always end up beaming videos of my son, or cartoons for him from my smartphone anyway, so those two gadgets sort of go hand in hand. I used to relish the rare days when I'd forget my pre-smart phone at home and not be pestered with calls and texts. But now I relish the images of my son at the beach with his mum whilst I'm at the office!
