I am just wondering...

I am just wondering if I am the only one on this forum (or maybe in this country?) who got none of (and even not planning to buy) the following:
1. HD TV (LCD/Plasma/DLP, etc)
2. Xbox360
3. Wii
4. PS3 (if ever released)
5. iPod (any kind of)
6. Skype phone
7. DVD recorder
8. Freeview (can't get it anyway)
9. DAB radio
10. Portable Satnav (I guess my Blaupunkt TravelPilot doesn't count as portable).

Am I last of the dinosaurs? Or are there more people like me? :)

I was nodding along until i got to the freeview box :-(
#19
Well... you know... some of my best friends got Freeview and they are still my best friends :)

I must confess that I have substitutes for just about everything in this list. Look:

1. HD TV (LCD/Plasma/DLP, etc) - Just standard 29" 4:3 TV, which is still going strong.
2. Xbox360 - I guess Xbox1 could count as a substitute?
3. Wii - this one is tough... so skip it.
4. PS3 (if ever released) - Got old fat PS2 with network and 200GB hard drive inside.
5. iPod (any kind of) - Got Cowon iAudio 30Gb MP3/Divx player.
6. Skype phone - Got SIP VoIP ATA device.
7. DVD recorder - er.. VCR is still working :)
8. Freeview (can't get it anyway) - No Freeview, but 2000 channels on satellite. For free of course.
9. DAB radio - No DAB but got WiFi radio so can listen to just about every station in the world. Currently set to some station from Moscow.
10. Portable Satnav (I guess my Blaupunkt TravelPilot doesn't count as portable) - Actually, I do have TomTom software on my mobile, but prefer to use built-in satnav in the car (installed it myself).
#20
1. HD TV (LCD/Plasma/DLP, etc) - Got
2. Xbox360 Got
3. Wii - Sounds and looks like too much effort to me, I mean come on, I wanna sit there having a smoke and a drink and get killed on screen!
4. PS3 (if ever released) - Will get
5. iPod (any kind of) - Got
6. Skype phone - Nah
7. DVD recorder - Got
8. Freeview (can't get it anyway) - Havent got freeview, but got sky digital!
9. DAB radio - Got
10. Portable Satnav (I guess my Blaupunkt TravelPilot doesn't count as portable). - Got x 2

:oops: :oops: :oops:
#21
2 satnavs? What for?
#22
[SIZE=2]Just incase one get's lost![/SIZE]

[SIZE=2]Plus, have GPS camera detectors, so my car looks like spacestar galatica at night! :) [/SIZE]
[SIZE=2][/SIZE]
[SIZE=2]Nah, have more than one car. Ones got it inbuilt. [/SIZE]
#23
So if one satnav would get lost you'd need another one to find it? ;-) (just kidding)

I was thinking of buying portable one, but then decided that it would be of no use for me. See, I am quite a lazy guy, so I know for sure that I won't unpack it, connect it and set it every time I'm going somewhere. Built-in one is sooo much easier. And it looks like an awfully ugly cheap radio, so (hopefully) generates no interest from undesirables.

For the very reasons I installed built-in Bluetooth handsfree, so that when car started it automatically connecting to my phone, without me doing anything. And it is hidden inside of dashboard, so again, no visible things apart from two additional buttons next to steering wheel.

Of the items mentioned,I have a Zen and cable tv.:oops:
Thought i was up to date but obviously not,not quite a luddite though!

As for satnav.......as a woman it took me a few years to master the art of map reading.Now I have this skill I am reluctant to let this ability go to waste on £2OO gizmo that doen't know shortcuts and shouts at me if I don't do as it says.

I have a husband for that!:giggle:

[COLOR=Black]I blame this forum for me having these consumer products :). If I wasn't married with kids I think the Wii would be on the list too. You missed out Sky +/HD, thats why I don't have a DVD recorder. Also download most of my regular tv shows and stream via the 360. I would have freeview and DAB if the reception was better in my town. You should add on a new laptop, that is going to be my next purchase when Vista ships.
I admit it I am quite materialistic, but also love hunting down the best bargains, makes you feel like the purchase is justifiable if you know you can't get it cheaper anywhere else. :)

[COLOR=Red][COLOR=Black]
To be honest, I never thought about getting Sky that's why it is not on the list. I've got my sat dish (two of them, actually) and getting most of channels I want for free, so why pay more? :)
I doubt I'll buy DVD recorder any time soon. What I really want is sat receiver with network connection, so that I could stream video to (and from) my file server.

As to laptops, I thought that they came down in price so much so that everyone probably got one already :) I do have one and it is rubbish (making myself a note: never buy another Dell).
