Lindsay: So, since we are talking about technology, I have a question for you. Is there any gadget or technology that you're really addicted to?
Jake: That would have to be video games. I have pretty much every video game console that was released since the late 80's.
Lindsay: Are you serious?
Jake: Yes. Every one of them.
Lindsay: Wow. I actually don't really like video games.
Jake: Why not? They're fun.
Lindsay: I don't know. I used to when I was a kid, but recently they just don't appeal to me... to sit in front and like, use my thumb to press this thing to make it jump and I guess I'm just not very good at them.

Lindsay: OK, what about you? How often do you play every day?
Jake: Well, since I'm working, there are lots of days when I don't play at all, and I would like to be able to play more.
Lindsay: OK, so one of your goals in life is to play more video games?
