MacBook Air

Super light. Ultra portable. Fantastic screen.  I love my MacBook Air :-) You can even mail it to a friend using the courier's standard envelope.

The iPod Touch

Another one of my favourite gadgets is the iPod Touch which plays music and video (including YouTube's flash videos). It can surf the web too with its built in WiFi. My best photos can be stored and displayed and the touch screen is really cool.

Check out this thread about the Wii

Wii by Nintendo

Game console with a great remote. You can play almost "real" tennis or golf. Just swing the remote like the way you swing a real tennis racket or a golf club. And Super Mario Galaxy is a most delightful game for young or old :-)

Welcome to Gadget Talk :-)

Hi all, I have started "Gadget Talk" simply because I am an incorrigible Gadget Freak. Being a senior citizen I have often been told I should really be doing some serious gardening, like growing and selling bonsai plants instead of wasting my retirement funds on gadgets. My detractors might have a point but I will not engage them in a debate here.
Technology intrigues me and when the latest technology is applied to new gadgets, I find them irresistible. If you love gadgets or have an interest in them, why not join me here. Unlike "specialised forums" which are able to discuss a particular gadget in depth, I confess my knowledge is only skin deep but I know enough to get that thing going :-)
I will start with my Sony PSP Slim. The original PSP (PlayStation Portable) was launched in 2004 but I did not buy one then as I considered it too "heavy". Then Sony launched the slim version late last year and it is a beauty. I bought one as soon as it was available in Penang on the grey market.
The PSP can play games (of course!) and it has built-in Wifi together with a web browser enabling you to surf the net. It plays music as well as video. It can also display photos. Quite a versatile fellow.
