What are some of your favorite toys?

You know...

The gadgets that you love to show off to friends, family and even strangers?

The.."hey, you got to check this out", kind of stuff?

I had a HP Jornada 690, the sweetest little machine i've ever laid my hands on... My ex stole it though...

I have 2 Yaesu VX5R's (standard red LED's, modded for freq usage, plan on modding LED's when I get a new iron).

Umm, I'm into Anime, so I have all of Fushugi Yugi on VHS and DUEL! on DVD.

I'm also into chainmaille so I have a few boxes full of coils of chain and wire crimpers.

You had to know I'd say TiVo! wink

Besides it, I love showing off my home computer/video/audio network and whole house distribution system. All my TiVos, the DVD player, and the stereo are located in my home/office but you can watch or listen to any of them and also control them with a remote in every room in the house. Same goes for my primary desktop which was a "home media PC" before they coined the term.

Then theres also my photography and my collection of antique cameras. But most people are most impressed with my tiny Pentax Optio-S which I always have with me and keep in an Altoids mint can.

Steve, did the Optio-S come in an altoids tin? A friend of mine has one, and he also carries it in an altoids tin. I have the Optio 430RS, which I like a lot. The S seemed too small for my hands, but it's a sweet little camera. I find the 430RS to be a little sluggish when taking pictures. That will be a consideration when I look to buy a new one in the future, one that shoots/writes superfast. Other than that I love the feel of the 430RS in my hands.

I'm also digging the Pioneer 810. I'm finally able to record all the shows on cable (since my other TiVo is hooked up to the cable line and not the box). The DVD burner is pretty good too, although I made a mistake of recording a 90 minute show in the highest quality, as a result it hard to be split onto 2 DVD's. Extreme/Fine gets 1 hr, High/SP 2 hrs, Med/LP 4 hrs and Low/EP 8 hrs. Also transferring a lot of programs over HMO. Medium programs cache and play at the same time, but Fine takes a long time to transfer over.

No you have to supply your own tin. Not a problem for me. I go though a tin of Altoids a week anyway.

I have a Kodak Digital Mactiva KVC-FD71, I chose it due to the ability to take photos directly to the floppy wink ...
