    I think the problem is that a personality is not generally considered to be tech savvy. You may be, but your personality isn’t. – Jim Jan 7 at 2:25

    What's wrong with technophilic? – Hot Licks Jan 7 at 2:37
  • +1 for the research. – Kris Jan 7 at 6:46
  • The linked question offers only nouns, which aren't always easy to make into adjectives. However, it would be useful to say what the adjectives you form are, and why they "seem out of place". Help for this sort of question – Andrew Leach Jan 7 at 7:24
  • @HotLicks I also like technophilic (+1). It's more accurate and inclusive than tech-savvy because the latter term implies knowledge and skill whereas the former only implies enthusiasm. It's a bit like the difference between being a music lover and a musician. – BoldBen Jan 7 at 8:55

A person who is enthusiastic about technology, an 'early adopter', is often referred to as a:

technophile.

The adjective form of this is

technophilic,

but that is much less common and might sound a little strange.

You could use the much easier to understand

technology-loving.
