Technology gadgets which are my primary love. This started at a very young age with a keen interest in all things that can be operated and therefore do more than objects that well, just do nothing. I remember most friends being content just playing with a Barbie Doll, whereas I loved the Barbie shower (with flowing mechanism) and Barbie oven (you could cook a tiny piece of chicken using the heat of the lightbulb). Why you would want to show a doll or give it a piece of chicken is beyond me. :-)
So enough about me, and now onto my 2 coolest gadgets of the moment:
This pricy yet tiny little baby can fit into the smallest handbag and project your laptop screen for full presentation purposes. It's hard to believe that this works, but it does! The light source is weak, however this was sufficient for a presentation I had (which was mostly text-based) for a group of 5. Another presenter had a presentation on a laptop with a very large screen, so we basically just looked at her presentation on her laptop. Strike 1 against my gadget. Despite the average performance, this purchase was definitely worth it, definitely for the "wow" factor judging from the 'oohs' & 'aahs' in the room when I first pulled it out the bag.
2. Lacie 8GB USB Flash KEY
The emphasis here is on the "key" part. Why someone didn't make a USB key looking like a key sooner is beyond me. The brilliant aspect is that it attaches to your keyring and you always have it with you (whereas I always seem to leave it at home exactly when I need it or have to search through my never-ending handbag in search of it).
The sleek design is practical and attractive, also eliciting "wows" from folks.
So in conclusion, I leave you with the following points:
- I do genuinely love gadgets and I emphasize the "wow" factor in this post since I just love seeing other people have the same reactions I have - I don't buy them to impress others (ok, maybe just a teensy weensy bit), on the contrary, you probably think I have some form of disorder after reading this, which isn't far from the truth)
- I don't get any kick-backs from BIT or LACIE or any other gadgets I promote (... yet)
- I have spent an obscene amount of money on gadgets (hence my Gadgetholic status)
- I have yet to find a support group, so please email me if you know of one ;-)
As long as they keep making 'em, I'll keen buying 'em.
It's been 31 days since my last purchase. We love you, Sharon.
