Okay, I have a tech question for you older kids or parents out there.  We are tech deficient and stupid so hoping for input for you more experienced users.
What do you use your tech for?  For example do you find that you use your notetakers for writting assignments and such?  Do you use it for internet or do you use your laptop more for internet?  For those with smart phones, what do you use them for other than phones?  
My son has a notetaker and uses it a little for school work, but it will get used lots more this coming year.  He is interested in getting his own email and maybe FB to stay in contact with his friends and some of his mentors.  I am thinking of getting him his own laptop, but JAWS is so expensive, does anyone use any cheaper programs?  What do you use them for?  He wants to keep in touch with his friends far away, and to play online games and look stuff up himself.  I am tech ignorant so don't even know what way to go.  I know all of the items can do this, but realistically what do you use for what applications.
I hope that I am not rambling;
