In the fast pace of the technology world, there are many opportunities to jump into the market early each and every year. If you've got a smartwatch on your wrist, Google Glass on your head, and a 4K television in your living room, you've probably already done so in recent times.

I fondly remember picking up the first Android handset, the HTC Dream, in 2009, kindling an early love for smartphones. I also recall running several beta builds of Windows as my daily driver, which for numerous reasons isn't the best idea when you want everything working correctly.

What times have you been an early adopter? Or do you always wait for the technology to mature before jumping in? Let us know in the comments below.
