But before we get started - what exactly is a gadget? Freedirectory.com defines a gadget as:
1. a small mechanical device or appliance
2. any object that is interesting for its ingenuity or novelty rather than for its practical use
Stephen Fry recently listed his Top 100 gadgets for Channel 4. He started with a karaoke machine and ended with a firelighter. Really Stephen? Really? A karaoke machine?
Well I think we can do better than that. So get your thinking caps on (now there's a gadget) and get your list of Top 5 Gadgets Ever written so that you can come back here and linky up.
1. Washing machine.
I know - such a middle-aged housewife's choice. But without it I'd me nothing more than a middle aged housewife at least the beloved washing machine allows us to leave the house.
2. Computer \ Laptop
Doesn't really need an explanation does it?
3. Hair dryer
Stops me looking like this:
4. Music player
Whether it's the record \ record player, tape \ tape player, cd \ cd player, iPod or whatever comes next bring music to the people has to be on the list.
