I'm looking for a name of a piece of equipment.. You can slide it on certain frets and makes the pitch go higher.. I don't know what they are called, any help please?

Also am I the only one who doesn't like using a pick?..

Yeah it's a capo, they're like $5-$15 usually. I too use fingers exclusively on some things I play, but pick mostly cause it's easier.

Depends on what style you play, but Eric Clapton and Mark Knopler both played alot without a pick...do you just not like the sound?

You might also be thinking of a piece actually called a slide. It looks like a bottleneck or tube that the player holds against the strings to get them to ring out, and is slid up and down the neck to produce a wide variety of sounds. A capo is a spring-loaded device to hold all (usually) of the strings down, thus changing the key of the instrument.
I've got the spirit, but lose the feeling.
