Well, I'm not quite using that level of technology, but I am using Microsoft Image Composer to look at different colors on my house so we can get an idea of what color would look the best. (Yeah, Image Composer - which I've had and used since 2000. They don't even make it anymore and it's not 100% compatible with Windows7. But I'm used to it and it is awesomely easy.)

What are you up to today? And once you get done answering that question here, please go over to the Killer Chicks and answer it over there.
