Damn, i already love this thread
I even wanna buy a Powermate despite the fact that i probably wouldn't have any use for it.
Ok, first, the oldschool non-electronic ones :
Well, this is my favourite coffee mug. Why ? Because it looks good, it's the perfect size and the handle feels great. Also, you can put coffee in it and it's delicious.
Yes, this is a mug too, but i don't put coffee in this one. In this one, i put rubbish. And i love it for the same reasons as the one above, more or less. I bought both of them the same day at a yard sale.
"Ok, what is that ?" you may ask. Well, first of all, i don't know about your country but in France, people are getting pretty crazy about coffee machines called "Expresso-makers". It works like this : instead of putting coffee in a filter and waiting forever to enjoy your coffee, you buy single doses (it looks like this
), put one in the expresso maker and you have a delicious coffee in a minute. Pros : it's very easy, very quick and the coffee is very good. Con : buying doses is WAY more expensive than buying traditional packs of coffee. This is where the little gizmo pictured above comes and changes your life : you fill it with any kind of coffee you like and put it in the expresso maker and voilà
. This is the CycloDS Evolution of coffee makers.
Pilot G-TEC-C4 = best pen ever. I draw a lot. I draw to earn money to buy food and chinese gadgets, but i also draw on my free time, in sketchbooks. This pen took casual drawing to a higher state of pleasure. You put it on a piece of paper, and it draws for you (it works with writing, too). It comes in two diameters : 0.4mm and 0.25mm. You might think it's too thin, but i love to fill pages with microscopic doodles using my 0.25 like a compulsive jerk. I think Moleskine lovers should give it a try.
I second Deozaan on the Nintendo DS Lite, i love mine too (it's covered with an aluminium case bought on Dealextreme
). I use a R4 myself, not a CycloDS, and some homebrew softwares are really fantastic. Here's a link
to a drawing i did on my DS using Colors
.4-in-1 Stylus Pen
: first, i bought it partly because the idea of a "all-in-one" ridiculous pen made me smile. But now, i find myself using the pen to write some quick stuff, playing with the laser when i'm bored, switching the light on to look for stuff in my bag and use the stylus with my DS when i'm tired of the small stylus. It's cheap, it comes with two sets of batteries.
That's it for now !
