    Old Stuff....

    I have a Psion 5MX. Still works, still does the job and still lasts several days on a pair of fully charged AA's. I use my Nokia e65 to access the web , becuase the Psion just can't, but other than that, Psion is the biz.....

    I'm not too bad. I have some old VHS tapes I keep meaning to get digitised (family memories etc). I got rid of all my old mobile phones (envirophone - made a couple of hundred quid) last year - apart from my very first, which I keep for nostalgia/bore-the-kids reasons.

    After that, I'm fairly middling. No BluRay yet. I'm sure I'll end up with one - but not yet. No iPod, as my phone does all that, but I have a NAS with a media server so all I need now is a media appliance hooked into my HiFi and HiDef telly and I'm pretty much up to date.

    Although I REALLY want a robot vacuum cleaner, mop and lawn-mower.
