    Gadgets you always put in your bag when you're out for the day

    After unloading my bag tonight I realised I'm a muggers dream come true.

    What items of gadgetry must you always bring along for the ride?

    For me -

    1. Mobile (HTC Hermes WM6.5 & big battery - obviously used for calls/texts/etc but also for getting the next gadget online via 3g
    2. Laptop (currently my little 7" Acer netbook with a big battery + car charger, this thing has taken over my computing life on the move)
    3. GPS (large widescreen satnav running TomTom, iGo)
    4. Nintendo DS (with 8GB MicroSD full of games, can never get bored)
    5. iPod (5.5g video for music & the odd bit of mp4age)
    6. 8gb USB flash drive - I keep the files needed to repairing systems yada yada on here, screw DVD/CDRs in 2009

    Stuff that often comes out with me -

    1. Degen FM receiver (rebranded eton e5 for long distance listening when I'm in a new area with time to burn)
    2. PSP (running all the emus under the sun)
    3. More than 1 laptop (you never know, right?)
    4. More than 1 phone

    ...well that's what I remember.

    What's in your bag?

    Edit: I hear xbecky07x likes to bring her special DealExtreme 'masagers' out with her, one for every occasion.

    Hah, yeah that is one of my various 'odd' little hobbies that keep me from falling asleep at the wheel. I'm sure I've wasted hours in the car scanning the dial, always been obsessed!

    iPhone eh, now that simplifies things a little too much! Never been one for convenience myself.

    LOL, well there's no denying that interweb radio takes away a fair bit of the oh-so-jaw-dropping thrill of discovering a new pirate/station x hundred miles away but I'm a sucker for Internet radio too. My wifi radio is probably in my top 5 purchases of the year, and I have WunderRadio and SelectRadio on my Hermes and have been known to stream stuff through the car (via FM of course, aux inputs/bluetooth just don't do it for me) :thumbsup:

    :0 I canna believe u

    Depends on where I am going but it's usually just my iPhone but if I'm going on long journeys I usually take my MacBook & use my iPhone for tethering

    My laptop and roms discs and a usb pad pretty much all I need.

    You have a bag and put a phone in it! Use your pocket like normal peo..................I'll stop there!:w00t:

    i thought gadgets were meant to simplify your life?, you seem to have made yours the exact opposite
    personally i take my acer wm phone, it acts as most things i need, media player, sat nav, phone and internet browser/email as well as phone
    need the lappy for work but that goes in the boot of the car not in "my bag"
    (do you really carry a bag during an average day?

    The only gadget i need is my hand sanitiser:-D

    I've never heard it described as that, but I guess you could say that:whistling:

    N95 8GB does er everything you do with that lot in your bag and 10 times more. You'll see the error of your ways when you do eventually get mugged.
