Sony released in 1991 the Scoopman NT-1 recorder. It's a 12 bit linear digital recorder that uses a tape cassette the size of a postage stamp as a storage medium. It was meant to be used for voice recording, but I used mine for music -- especially in the car and when skiing.

Now of course, my iPods (G1 10GB and Shuffle) have completely replaced it. Occasionally I will use mine to record something then convert to .mp3.

I love my Samsung e700, it's the best looking phone ever!

http://www.zdnet.fr/i/edit/pr/2003/10/samsung_e700_enlarged.jpg

But of course the stupid thing is slowly dying on me. The screen gets pale when it feels like it, the camera doesn't work and it keeps telling me to insert a sim card even though there is one in there. :( :mad:

It'll cost too much to fix, so I think that this'll be my new favourite gadget once I get it.

It's one of the only other phones whose looks appeal to me atm.

What r those? They look awesome. :)
Just a warning, These toys are VERY VERY addictive!

The toys with the two protruding ears are called "Dunny".
The ones with the Mickey Mouse ears are called "Qee"
The little cloud head guy is called "Rolito"
And the b/w striped guy is an "Alphabeast"

Found here-
http://www.kidrobot.com/
http://www.myplasticheart.com/
http://www.qeester.com/sql/catalog.php

This is a toy/art movement that started a few years back in Japan. They are usually created in limited edition and some cost a pretty penny$$$.
Just do an Ebay search for "Dunny" or "Qee" and see what im talking about. Really got into them durring my time as a toy designer.

These are just a few of the thousands of versions created.

They are mostly sold blindly in little boxes meaning you have no idea which one you are getting.

DONT SAY I DIDNT WARN YOU! VERY VERY ADDICTIVE!!!!

average $5-$9 US each blind boxes. Also pay close attention to the sizes. The little blind boxes usually have a 2-3 inch toy inside. Some of the toys (Not blind boxes) are 8-10 inches tall but look exactly like the smaller ones and usually have the higher prices. there are even a few 20"+ sizes and go for $300 - $500 or more:eek:

I would suggest you just start with the cheaper blind boxes purchased from the links I posted before. If you start to appreciate their appeal, then look around on ebay for ones you like but are not available any more.

The saddle is a specialized indie 143. And the bike wasn's always so sexy. It was a bottem of the line, sora alum bike that ran about 400$. After around a grand of eaby buys its the perfect bike, execpt the frame. Custom steel is on the way, went in for a fitting last night.

Ok, so we don't have the same saddle, then. I have some specialized saddle, not sure what kind. I'm in process of rebuilding a bike as well, though it's going to be more of a commuter road bike. Also, it's on a much more limited budget, basically I'm taking a $40 used old Fuji and making it viable again.

What model Fuji is it. They had some nice lugged steel frames back in the day. Can never go wrong with a nice lugged steel bike. They ride much better then anything out there, even carbon IMO.

I honestly don't know. It was pretty beat up when I got it, and it's actually being painted now, so there's no real markings left. It's pretty light for its age, and I'm converting it to a single-speed for daily use. It does ride pretty nicely, i must say, even for its age.

It's rare as cheese and I would never swop it for anything. I have pics, but they're of her innards :D I am very proud of her. Even though I broke off the A/B Speaker selection knob :eek:

Had it since October, spent quite a lot of time working away so haven't really had much time on it to be honest. On the pavement it's sooooooooo much better than my hard tail Kona, off road on the rough it's bloody brilliant.

The ST takes a bit of getting used to, I'm always aware of it bobbing when pulling hard up hill.

Thought I'd upload a picture of the bike, now that I'm nearly done with it. Still haven't gotten the chain on it (its a single-speed), or the brakes, but those'll be on by the end of the week. This is now officially my new favorite gadget, until I give it to my girlfriend in a week and a half. At that point I'll have to build another single-speed for myself.
