Although I love Gadgets, they do have to be useful. And so I've made a list of a few things I hope never to own
1. Ferrari 458 (aka F451)
It will just catch fire, or break down. I don't need that level of uncertainty.
2. Portable USB Battery Packs
I use something called a power socket. Unless you are genuinely away from mains power, yet with capacity to carry a heavy just in case charged battery around all the time ... It is just ridiculous
3. Small Emergency Torch
Get a Smartphone which has includes a flash. Come on!
4. Seat Belt Cutter
Each human being in a Western Country is likely to be trapped in a car whose belts do not open less than once per lifetime. It's just something that we don't need
Whistle within a few metres and the Keyfinder responds. Within a few meters is the clue to its uselessness!
6. 5 minute Mask
You may detect a pattern here. With no exceptions that I can think of today I am against carrying or keeping any /just in case/ gadget, where the just in case might happen about <= once in my lifetime.
So if you send me any of these for Christmas, Ferrari included I promise to return them.
