Definitely my Kindle is favourite. Goes everywhere with me and it's never missed a beat.
Worst has to be some off the white goods in the kitchen. I have just spent the last three days repairing the electric cooker and prior to that it was the washing machine. Still with repair charges as they are I have probably saved a fortune!
For me automatic transmissions; once upon a time I loved a good manual vehicle. However as the population on the road has grown, the vast majority of my motoring time is spent crawling in traffic.
Without an open road a manual transmission just becomes annoying. The journey to work should takes me 20 minutes with no traffic. With traffic it takes me an hour. When it snows it can take up to 2 and a half hours to get home.
It means that I can't be part of any auto enthusiast conversation as to them automatics are terrible and killing real motoring.
