I'd have to say mine is the Deluxe Sized Original Pawley's Island Hammock that I just hung in my newly built screened back porch.

Working with technology all day, everyday for the majority of my waking years has taught me that some of the best "gadgets" are the simple ones that get you away from the complex "gadgets".

I also love my "No, I won't fix your computer" T-shirt.

Good point Harold - simpliest things to get away from the everyday gadgets can be 'relaxing'

As for the T-shirt, where do I get one? I can stop repeating myself when I do

MBeckett, go check out www.thinkgeek.com
I've seen the shirts there.
Genius is more often found in a cracked pot than in a whole one.

Wait.. wait...
I think that falls into the fav toys category which perhaps deserve it's entire thread. Cause I got a whole different list... like dog humping USBs... cubicle-to-cubicle missile warhead USBs... etc..etc...

Yesss... Drako... you can see them at that site.

Obelix is right, they have a lot of fun toys there. My favorite shirt is still the Wifi detector.

Finally got my upgrade...

And initially it was a dissapointment. Nokia E90 basic function sucks probably cause s60 was build for the single-hand-operation thing. Nokia 9500 built-in contact and office application is far more superior than the one that came with e90. And the version among the s60's are NOT interchangeable !

However... with few freeware E90 could do a lot. Lightyears lot. Here's some highlights :

First of all, the GPS works and surprisingly accurate compare to the free Google map thing.

Next with a lil gem called Salling Clicker. It turns the cellphone into a presenter's remote through bluetooth and wi-fi (internet). It works only for powerpoint and media files but the cool thing is it can go through the pc like an explorer ! Unregistered version only allow 30 click before it kills the connection and ask you to recconect. But any good presenter won't have slides more than 20 anyway right ? So it's such a steal !

Next I stumble into something called WWIGO this application consist of a pair of server and client program. One for the pc and one for the cellphone. It send whatever the cellphone's camera/video catch to the pc. But here's the cool thing... it does it through the internet ! So it basically change the cell phone into a cctv...

A wicked application called JoikuSpot let you share internet like a hot spot. I know... nuts... couldn't believe it until I was using it. It turns the cellphone into an Access Point !

This last application am telling you is the one that convince me I am right about this gadget. Nokia give away this application complete with the web service for free. They name it Mobile Web server. You register on nokia to reserve a domain (something.mymobile.net) download and install the software and voila... that url ? something.mymobile.net ? It host the content of your cell phone. Everything in it you can share to the net (dokument, pictures, video... everything... they even throw in a blog service on the domain). It transform the cell phone into web server. Unbelieveable !
I think this is the only security solution that would actually works. I mean how do you hack a server that was carried by the owner in his/her bloody pocket ?!?!?
Mua ha hah ah a hah ah ahahahahahahahahahahaaaaaaaaaaa

I got so much fun with it I start breaking some of my rules... I got games now on my cell. My fav is Wall-e, 3D Ducati extreme and 3D snakes. Though I got Death race, x-men, hulk, and crazy frog as well. I also installed DivX so I can for once view ...*Ooops kinda pause*.. view uh... educational uh... ya know... audio visual kind of... material without having to convert it into something mobile.

Some must have application like ssh and ftp although not conviniently available I finally got it installed and working.

Other like Call filter (days off...office emergency... boss ? Dilema solved!), Screenshots, Worldmate (there's a city in europe I need to know the exact time of... and the female voice that announce the weather is too sexy)... are stuff I picked up until I need more space.

Bottom line ?
I'm glad I did the upgrade...

I absolutely love the amount of time Obelix has on his hands since I presume this wasn't done out of hours?!

*rolling eyes and sniggers*

Nice review though Obelix

PS. Yes I did have the time to read it all!

Despite the recent purchase of a 55" LCD LED TV, I still have to say, my iPhone is the best gadget investment made since my Inspiron 9300 purchase over 5 years ago.

Recently inherit a nice nokia n93.
It's a multimedia benchwork packed as a phone.
I mean you can shoot, edit (cut, add sound, add text, combine with transition effect) and published right from the bloody cell !
On top of that it got an RCA output so you can show your creation on any device that has that yellow video jack...

I mourned the death of this series and highly suspicious it was due to pressure from zero innovation uncompetitive digital vidcam and camera vendors!

I'm not giving up on the iPhone that easily - it is definitely still my favorite gadget !

I have an iphone for work, but I think that it is poor as a phone, can't hear the ring tones, no bluetooth send/recieve, no video clips even though we know if you jailbreak it, it is quite capable of video clips, no facility to make appointments private if you sync you calendar to work, you have to loose all your data on the phone the first time you set up an exchange sync, can't sync tasks with google .......

That said, windows mobile although brilliantly flexible has a way to go still in the finger friendly department, as a browser the iphone wins hands down.
Android anyone .....?
