We’ve all got them, those gadgets that we take for granted and never really thought about how long we’ve had them, how tough a life they have had or what we’d do if they ever broke! Here is just a selection of my most used and abused gadgets.
Each time I pack my bag I end up spending time figuring out what tech I need to take, how its going to fit into the bag and what, if anything I should leave at home! This list varies slightly depending on where and how long but there are some key things.
Anyway, we all have our love/hate relationship with these things and for for me in the most part I love them, but it appears that some clever people (or not so clever people) at Apple had a plan, a plan which isn’t really widely known (not even in Apple) and isn’t advertised clearly anywhere.
Xbox 360 HD-DVD
Yes I was one of those people who had high hopes for HD-DVD, I was too young to fight in the Betamax vs VHS wars but here I was ready, willing and able to take on the Bluray army with the might of the HD-DVD! Not only did I have this, but I also bought (and still own I may add) a brilliant but albeit very slow to initially power on HD-DVD player and 28 HD-DVDs. Now people think HD-DVD and oddly assume its an old technology from years ago but forget that its actually quite recent and some of my collection includes quality films such as ‘V for Vendetta’ and ‘Serenity’.
