Most useless gadgets I've ever bought are PDAs. I never seem to learn my lesson, and have had four now. Never again! I'm back on a plain paper notebook and fountain pen. Luddism rules.

As to pinhole cameras - just get the one from Polaroid, they're a great learning experience because of the instant feedback. Not cheap to run, but still worth it IMO.

I also found PDA's to be a Pain in Der Arsenic. Bought one a couple of years back 'cos I thought it would improve my image. Ha-ha-ha!

However I recently put it to good use and it's a bit of a godsend in that capacity. I bought TomTom navigator for it and it's the biz for directing me to and from people's houses. No more getting lost in a maze of streets....

I bought one of those little handheld steam cleaners like you see on the infomercials, not that one that looks like a penguin, but that sort of thing.

:oops: :oops: :oops:

Oh God the shame. Only £30, but even so...

By the way, what's a Unicut (and no, this doesn't mean I want to buy it! :wink: )?
