What with my birthday and my bonus having arrived at about the same time, I find that I can afford to treat myself to some commercial electronics but I have a dither about what to get. So...it's poll time once again.
- A cd writer: This would be pretty cool and would be useful if I ever manage to get connected to the binaries newsgroups or if I get a digital camera but I'm not sure how much I'd use it initially
- A digital camera: This would be great and they're shiny and I could put my photos on my website (I'm sure you're all thrilled :) ). On the downside, I don't use my camera a lot atm - I tend to forget it's there. Possibly this would be less true with digital, but I'm not sure
- A scanner: I could digitise my current photos etc and move my scrapbook project to the web. Can't think of any obvious downsides to this one
- A DVD player: Would be cool. But I don't have any DVDs - I have a shit load of videos and I don't buy new ones that often.
In fact, it's painfully obvious that I don't need any of these things, I'm just seduced by their shinyness. Although, before I bought my visor I didn't think I'd get that much use out of it - I'd never really managed to keep an appointments diary properly before - and now it's one of my most essential bits of kit.[Poll #20076]
