Ever get that feeling that something you 'might need' just has to be bought there and then? This urge is brought out in me when on-line or TV Channel shopping. Last item was click here and much cheaper than shown on this Advert. Bought one, then a second for my son out in Saudi. Just for a change a bit of a goodie! Some purchases don't quite work out and it obviously pays to do your homework before splashing out. I see from an earlier thread that some members did the same with Ipods of various types, so I am not alone. Glad to say most of my buys are relatively inexpensive, but how do you cure the urge?
I have found my self frequently walking home from our local monthly computer fair clutching a little blue carrier bag of a something purchased on impulse Here are 2. A wed Cam- tiny little thing with built in illumination by 6 white LED's the softwares not bad either -£15 It sits there on an improvised bracket looking right at me -Trouble is - I don't know anyone suitable up with SKYPE or other to talk to.
Now this one I thought a real need having been at a friend's house needing to plug in a USB device and not having a suitable lead. It is a USB connector with one of very USB 'end' in a neat little package- £6 - used it once to far .
I bought a 40' TV at Easter-at £1350 a great web price. 5 months on its £700! At least it is a super tv. I bought a cheap USB coffee mug warmer a couple of years back. What a handy thing except the base is too small for any of my mugs! Will I ever learn...
