BEDM #7 - My favourite gadgets over the years...
1980s - I loved my Sega Megadrive, which was kindly donated to me by an older cousin who no longer played on it. Sonic the Hedgehog is still the only computer game I'm any good at! I also had a little black and white portable TV which gave me chance to watch Interview with the Vampire secretly when I was little.
1990s - My trusty red Walkman traveled with me on every family holiday I went on. My Salt and Pepa mixtape was on heavy rotation when I was a kid, as was Jagged Little Pill several years later. Perfect listening for an anti-social teenager!
2000s - My Polaroid camera became my favourite gadget after I found one in a charity shop six or seven years ago. I also loved my Lomography Fisheye camera (found in the same charity shop!) which uses 35mm film.
2010s - I hate to be predictable, but my iPhone is now my most used gadget. I think I am perhaps relying on it a bit too much though; when I'm on the bus I scroll through Twitter and when I'm waiting for a friend I check my emails. I need to start carrying a good book around with me instead and not get too absorbed in the virtual world!
