    Default What to spend birthday money on?

    It was my birthday recently and as usual i just got given money by family & relatives as i really couldn't think of anythign i wanted, so i've got about £120 to buy myself something with.

    The thing is i'm really stumped as to what to get, as there's nothing i really want as such. If i put it in my account it will just get swallowed up on household crap so i would prefer to get something with it. I do like technology and gadgets so would like something of that persuation (rather than suggestions of blowing it on a hooker )

    I've fairly recently bought a couple of media players, a largish remote control helicopter (Syma S033G S033G - 3CH R/C helicopter with GYRO - Syma Toys) but would be interested to hear from the panel as to suggestions of things they've recently got or had their eye on

    If you are blowing the hooker you are doing it wrong
    “Live a good life. If there are gods and they are just, then they will not care how devout you have been, but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by. If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones.”

    ― Marcus Aurelius

    Not necessarily, think about it.

    Ive been considering one of these:-

    http://www.techradar.com/reviews/aud...1090466/review

    It combines PVR and tv on demand (like iplayer etc) all in one unit.

    I have my greedy little eyes on a Canon EOS 6D, being released this december. Snag is it will be a bit over £2K, and £120 would barely buy the lens cap

    But seriously, how about a Corsair Flash Survivor Stealth Ruggedised 64GB USB3.0 Flash Drive and a meal out with the OH (not me, your OH - well me if you like, as long as you're paying!)

    The reviews on Amazon mostly say wait until the next release as it will be better.

    But Sue, that's just a software update away. Assuming what they moaned about hasnt already been updated. Its a bit like processors, you can wait for the next one which will be better, but do you ever actually get one?
