Gadgets gadgets gadgets!

So, I indulged my love of gadgetry this weekend. As per usual, I planned to get one thing but came away with something else! The initial plan was to get a large-capacity mp3 player and a portable dvd player for my travel trips. I also wanted a compact digital camera for skiing etc as my SLR doesn't fit in a pocket!

I stuck to one plan and the digital compact I got was a fuji z37. It is very girly/'gay'! Hopefully it will be hard to lose. The reviews I've read seem to be singing its praises so let's hope it was a good buy.

The other purchase was something different to the plan, but I think kills 2 birds with one stone (the mp3/dvd player), and then some! I also got this archos 5. It is an internet tablet-type machine, with mp3/mp4 cababilities. It stores photos, music, videos, records from the tv/freeview etc, browses the net, has email, can be converted to be a GPS, plays radio and so much more! I am still finding out what it can do. Anyway, it was half price and I thought a good deal, especially with its 120gb hard drive. It is like an i-phone but without the phone bit I think. The geek in me is very happy :)
