Gadget freaks are not the same to geeks. At some point they are contradicting.
Gadget freaks emphazise on the possession of, well... gadgets. They often rely on money to achieve well respected status.
On the other side, the geeks are willing and love to do more, in unbelievable efforts to do or create something that might be easier to have or do with more money. The process is essential. Scientific or technical difficulties is the way.
True Geeks. We do, not because we have to. We do because we can!
