A Celebration of Assorted Gadgets
and My Passion to Waste Money On Them

 

"What the heck?!?"

You know somebody like me. I like to tinker around and I have to have little gadgets to play with. But unlike most people, I'm usually not satisfied with selecting a single brand or model of any particular type of gadget. I try as many as I can. And when I say that I try them, I don't mean that I go to the store and fiddle with them...I mean that I actually buy, borrow, beg, or steal so I can try them out for an extended period under real-life conditions.

The result is that (a) eBay makes a lot of money from me, and (b) I'm in an excellent position to objectively evaluate the gadgets compared to others of the same type. For example, I have more than 10 different headphone amplifiers, even though I have only one set of ears to which to apply them. (The total number varies, as I have a tendency to swap, sell, buy, and give them away.) Ask me about portable speakers for your MP3 player and I can instantly produce half-a-dozen units for you to try. Buy one of them, and I'm likely to spend the money on yet another set of portable speakers I haven't yet tried.

So, relax. Take a look at what I think about some of the gadgets I've had a chance to live with. I've even rated each one on a scale of 1 to 6. Maybe it will help you select (or avoid) that item you've been thinking about.
