    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 [​IMG]

    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.
