Forget Microsoft Support. Allow Miss November Ciara Price to troubleshoot your digital woes. "Ever since the seventh grade I've been a closet nerd who took apart computers and put them back together again," the 21-year-old wireless consultant says. At school Ciara realized her techie wiles had the power to short-circuit the opposite sex. "I was the only girl in my computer class, and because tech talk is like a competition, the guys loved that I could keep up with them," explains Ciara, who when she wasn't online as a teenager was pirouetting in dance class. "I was like, Yes! I can finally talk to the boys about something!" Next on the Maine native's drop-down menu is a move to Los Angeles, which of course will require packing up her iPad, MacBook, digital cameras, flash drives and whatever cell phone she's toting around at the moment ("It's a problem--I go through two or three of them a year"). Charged up over becoming a Playmate, an unexpected turn of events that came about when a photographer friend urged her to try modeling, Ciara says, "I'm so proud, excited and, yes, thankful!" Then she winks. "See, I figured I'd be spending the month at my desk back in Maine, but now I'm totally hardwired for the L.A. experience."
