Over the last two months many magazines, webzines, and websites tout the Top Gadgets for the season. Here are some that I followed:,30583,1686204_1686305_1690738,00.html

The iPhone seems to be a favorite of the lot and on a previous rant I have mentioned that I am one of the June 29ers to get the iPhone!

I have always collected gadgets and one of the earliest that I still have around (don’t use it much) is the Casio SF-8300 PDA.

The collection has never stopped; tens of thousands of dollars have been spent (or wasted…)!

In the 90’s Collection - I have had the Palm Pilot Professional, the First Windows CE PDA – the HP 620 LX, one of the very first Mega Pixel Digital Cameras – the Ricoh RDC-5000 (even before it was introduced to the open market in 1998), one of the very first portable Digital Players from Sony – the MS Walkman (in 1998), the Handspring Visor Prism, and the Palm Pilot VII (the wireless version with Web Access capabilities).

The 2000 Collection:

Started with the 2nd Generation Apple iPod, and continued with first generation, second generation iPod Shuffles, Nintendo Gameboy, Sony PSP, Nintendo DS-Lite, 2nd Generation 8GB iPod Nano, the much revered Apple iPhone and just recently the Nokia 810 Internet Tablet.

I am hoping that 2008 will see more added to my toys as they say: "Men Never Grow Up – The Toys Just Get More Expensive"! Next time, I will publish my (never-ending) Wish List…..
