Gadgets We Can’t Live Without

Was listening to the radio this morning and they were talking about gadgets people couldn’t live without. It got me wondering about mine, and I think it has to be my Nokia N86. OK, so I could actually live without it, but mobile technology has certainly revolutionised my life in the last few years.

First and foremost, its obviously a phone. Since owning mobile phones, I’ve felt much more confident when out and about. No more worrying about how I’ll get home if I get lost or transport breaks down. No more having to try and locate a phone box and needing to have the right change.

Talks is a great piece of software giving me access to my phone book and even better my calendar.

With its current 12 gb of storage space, I have room for books and music. I’m currently carrying 8 books around with me! Its Daisy player and Audible player gives me access to two different formats for accessing books.

On top of all that, there’s web browsing, Twitter and Email.

I’d never buy a camera for the amount of time I use one, but to have one is fun. Also the ability to record has proved useful occasionally.

So, all this in something that’ll fit in your pocket.

The absolute best part however, is that it is mainstream so looks stylish. With a well designed piece of software, its been made fully accessible.

So there you have it!
