    Has to have been my TiVo, was said to finally get rid of it when the suggestions stopped working, definitely best ever gadget for me.

    Would love an up to date version.

    Going w/ the trend of technology "newer is better", I'd say my recent purchase of a Aaxatech P1 pico projector is the best, that is until my P2 arrives to replace it :D lol :p

    Would have to be my pure Avanti Flow.

    Mind you, since I bought it I've upgraded my ipod (£175) got wireless networking (£70.00 + £25 month) downloaded loads more music from itunes (approx. £90.00).

    Oh my God!! It really is never ending isn't it?

    I am just enjoying new itouch which is top for games. I also like my HTC touch HD for being a PDA and a phone, great for memory map OS maps which you just can't do on an iphone. Also loving Humax HDR, sky+ for tight arses :)
    Also my cree LED torches, handy for these winter nights.

    It's got to be my iPhone. I've owned loads of mobiles in my time and usually get bored with them after a month or so. But 12 months down the line i still love it and use it more than i've ever use any other gadget.

    I love the pico z indoor helicopters. Just bought the new twin rotor /3 channel version fro £12 from play, much more control and great fun. I'll never forget the first time I saw one amazed with something that you could control that small indoors.
