    What's the thing that you could easily manage without but like to use, just for the fun of it? For me it has to be the packing tape gun...

    I couldn't live without anything.

    Gadgets I love at the moment are:
    HTC Touch Diamond
    Ipod Shuffle for the Gym

    Couldn't live without them

    Xbox 360 :) Great for getting away from any sort of work and crashing into angry Americans on GRiD.

    I am most reliant on my iPhone 3G. I am either online, on the phone or emailing on it all day long!

    Mine is..

    my laptop. When my arthritis is really painful I can sit in my reclining chair and catch up on my blog, my articles and once in a while, my work!

    I'm loving my Blackberry Bold, can't believe how well it works. I am half way up a hill in the middle of the woods dealing with an email enquiry from Germany... magic!

    Certainly my Tomtom has transformed driving / travelling and have jsut ordered the 730

    Not exactly a gadget but I would really hate to be without my hi-fi. I hate listening to music on bad quality equipment.

    Definitely the over extravagant purchase I made a few weeks ago a top of the range Nikon DSLR

    I rarely take photo's went straight from phone to that such a sucker for gadgets!

    I haven't a clue how to use the thing

    ^ Ensure you use only Manual - it's the only way you'll ever learn photography. I've been using pro Digital SLRs for nigh-on 15 years and I still use manual. :yes:

    Not since you said 'iPhone'! :lol: :p ;)

    Nah, I'm not an Apple fan but they're nice bits of kit. Waaay overpriced but nice all the same.

    I like the iphone look but not how it works maybe because I have hands like shovels!

    I too think they are way overpriced

    thanks for the DSLR tip

    My next gadget

    is going to have to be a netbook. I'm on the road a lot more and really need to stay in touch but hate having to lug a laptop (I have wrecked shoulders).

    Any one know any good review sites or tips to get something decent, preferably with separate mobile broadband rather than being locked in with built in, but keeping value for money?

    Cheers
    Tess
