-Over the years, it's easy to amass a collection of technology clutter.
-I have, like, this gadget museum in, like, my garage.
-But CNET Senior Editor Donald Bell says there is a lot of gear, gadgets, and other antique technology to de-clutter from your life.
-I'm glad to get rid of them.
-For starters, a desktop computer.
-Having that there, taking up a big space in your home, isn't worth it these days.
-I don't even know what desktops look
-Experts say if you invest in one smartphone packed with features, you can get rid of a whole handful of other gadgets: a point-and-shoot camera, a camcorder, a GPS device, and an MP3 player.
-What else do you need, like, I mean, phone, Internet, GPS?
-So, I use it all the time.
-But there is some technology worth keeping.
-Unless you're really looking to just consolidate and simplify your life, a thumb drive is a handy thing to have around.
-Also, high-speed Internet and
cable at home.

-Gotta have NFL.

So, unless you're really trying to simplify things, it doesn't hurt to hold on to them.
-In San Francisco, I'm Kara Tsuboi, CNET.com for CBS News.
