New stuff

It's been a while since I've told you what's going on with me - technologically wise.  Well, since I've updated you last, I've gotten several gadgets.  I'm always looking for great deals on gadgets.

First and foremost - I have gotten an iPhone.  Yeah, I know that I said - twice now - that I won't be buying an iPhone... But if you read those posts, the main reason I said that, on both counts, was the contract.  Since I bought my iPhone used, (it's a first gen 8 GB 2G), there was no contract to sign.  And since it's jailbroken and unlocked, I don't have to but the $20 data plan.  It's got its issues since it is used, but I've got a friend who said he can fix that.

I also got a Dingoo - the Linux powered game system.  It's awesome.  Media player, FM Radio, built-in TV-out, stereo speakers, retro system emulators.  It's about the size of a Game Boy Micro, or the bottom half of a Nintendo DS Lite / DSi.  If this sounds at all appealing to you , you owe it to yourself to get one.

And my final aquistion is that of a Didj - a Didj is a kids-focus edutainment handheld game ssytem, that is also Linux powered.  I got it for $20.00 ($4.95 shipping) from woot.  I bought that in the hopes that the homebrew scene will grow around it.  There have been some advancements in that department lately.  What have you gotten recently?

My newest gadget would be my iPod Touch. Looking forward to getting the new iPhone when it comes out.
