The "Other " Gadgets
What do I mean by the "other" Gadgets
"Other" gadgets here are gadgets which had their share of popularity in the past, but eventually was left behind because of the fast changing technology. Most of them we can still use, but with the tempting new versions at reasonable prices, leaving those gadgets behind is really unavoidable.
Why Gadgets became outdated?
TheTechnology is simply amazing. Gadgets improved so fast that regardless of its uses, it became outdated because the newer version answered the imperfection of the latter. People are just so Gadget Crazy, for they really look forward to what's latest, and those who can afford really spend for it, to be the first to have it, or simply out of curiosity, or they are simply "Techy".
For a change I decided to talk about the not so outdated gadgets, most of them I owned while the rest were either old office equipment or gadgets owned by "techy"cousins.
Fuji FinePix A202 Digital Camera
My Fuji A202 is a 2 megapixel camera that can also produce good pictures. It uses an XD memory card with only 750mb capacity. This is the first version of Digicam, in which the monitor screen is small. A techy person will definitely drop this down with the latest digicams that flooded the market nowadays. Most of them with higher megapixels, can handle up to 8 Gb, and biggest monitor screen, prices are reasonable because it started to drop each time a new model was released in the market
MP3, MP4 AND MP5 IMMITATION
This is the cheaper version, may not passed the standard and may not be your money's worth because if you are not careful, this may not last for months. A friend told me it was called an MP4 or MP5 because of its multiple functions. Camera and Video functions, though not the best, I can say it can't be the worst also. Good when use outdoors and in broad daylight. It can store music too, capable of storing games, can be used as e-book and most of all it can function like a flash drive where you can store your files and pictures.
though I don't use this to take my photos and videos, and not use this to listen to my music, this became very useful to me in storing my files. bought this in 2008 and still working until now..
7 or 8 years ago, using this in a seminar or meeting to take down notes can really make all eyes looked at you. I tried using it once, when I didn't have a personal computer or laptop at home yet. I wrote my article in it, then connect it to my PC in the office, the following day, and transfer my article., a program must be installed to the computer so that IPAC can transfer the document to the PC then automatically converted it into MS word. This is very handy, but with the present released of Notebook computers, the function of this IPAC became impractical. Using a laptop computer is more convenient because you are directly working in MS office, no conversion needed.
This IPAC has other functions too but most of those functions are also being covered by ordinary cellular phone
IPOD the classic style
Apple Ipod, the first Version
Bigger and Thicker version, and with large screen. The color is black or gray. It can store up to thousands of songs, and with music videos. This was immediately replaced by thinner and smaller version in different attactive colors.
My Apple Ipod is the smallest version, the one without video and has 1 gb capacity, that was the 2007 model, the latest version is smaller but with 2gb capacity.
First Version PSP
The first version of PSP was very impressive enough to make boys or even adult males to get crazy with it. It can be connected to a television to enjoy bigger view. Latest PSP player can make you do a lot more aside from playing games. Thru the latest PSP you can also browse the net
