Do you actually give name to your consoles? Like calling your DS Jimmy or something.

And if you do, care to tell us the name?

I know it's not quite the same, but I do assign personalities to them...not in the imaginary friend way though, that'd be crazy.

Machines are deserving of names (vehicles, guns, etc)
Electronics: not so much.

I mean really, would you name your TV? Your desk lamp? Your calculator?

These seem to have no discernible personality.

Nope, but my car has a name. And her name is Sheila. (a la Red Vs. Blue)

But i feel that the given names of systems (Wii, DS, PSP, etc etc) are already capitalized and therefore decent names.

That, and i have enough real people with names. If i would start naming other things, Wife® might be a little worried, or more confused

Well, to go offtopic, some of my technological products do have names...

Now granted, these are, Memory sticks, hard drives, and iPod, what are nameable by design, and I am not calling them with those names. I am not going around my friends "let me check out that site on my Miku" - no, I say "I just check it with my iPod touch"

so, yeah, as said, my iPod is Miku, what is fun and fitting name for a player of musical productions.

Second is my USB sticks, memory cards, and such. My three hard drives are at moment by vocaloids too:
01 - Miku
02 - Rin & Len
03 - Luka

their other title goes also by 4chan lingo of:
C:\ = /g/ (technology board, my C is mostly just personal files, windows, and productive apps and such)
D:\ = /v/ - for Videogames. Self explanatory; that drive is 700 gigs and includes almost 400 gigs of PC games and pretty much nothing else.

L:\ = /a/ - 1Tb external... 400 gigs of anime and other stuff.

My DS memory cards are KBIT and OMEGA

My external USB stick is B - random - again by 4chan, the name is what it includes, random files, from a World of minecraft client wrapper to random images, some semi-important school stuff and such.

What...?

My DS might have a name, but since it's the adopted child of my Wii, only he/she had the right to name it.
