I wouldn't say it changed my life, but I'm a little older than you. It certainly reflects my life. I'm a tweaker and a tinkerer in general. My car has a home built standalone engine control system, my last computer build ran at stock speeds for all of 48 hours before I started pushing the clocks and has 4 operating systems installed (2 stable/ready for anything, 2 "experiemental"), and when I see something I don't like in a product my first thought is typically "How can I make that work for me?".
So yea, my Droid suited me perfectly. Now I've "moved on" to the Galaxy Nexus and I use my 0G for a media player in my car, but the attitude remains the same.
