Thumbs up Latest gadget... colour printer

I've just got one of those Epson "Picture Mate" printers which are advertised on the telly at the moment.

Wow!

It will print directly from the card, or from PC by USB and the quality is fab. Costs about 29p per print. 6"x4" prints only.

Quality is superb - just like a glossy photographic print.

Re: Latest gadget... colour printer

sounds good Richard

Out of interest whats the most useful gadget anybody's bought. In terms of everyday use I think it has to be the 'Jiggle Syphon'

and I mean the one I use for transferring fuel!

Yup, Leatherman (in my case supertool 200, in fact I've got about five different models, I buy the latest every time I go to the States)

They are truly wonderful.

While we're on gadgets, I'm in the market for one of those GPS speed camera alert devices -- just got another ticket for doing 36 in a 30 zone

Anyone tried one? I like the look of the Micro Road Pilot but for about the same price I could get a Tom Tom Go which is a full on navigator with an optional speed camera database.

I reckon that a dedicated unit would ultimately be better for camera avoidance, but it seems a shame to miss out on the navigation stuff too. Decisions, decisions . . .

The price of these units would pay for lots of fixed penalty tichets!! (R U feeling the heat of just having three "lives" left Mr Rocket?)

Of course, if you've got a handheld unit already, you could just look for a reliable source of camera waypoints and set the unit to "alert to waypoint"?

I have the 'Road Angel' by Black spot, it's fab, and I wouldn't go anywhere without it now, the real eye opener, is when it warns you about the 'average speed' traps between motorway bridges, you really wouldn't know that they're there otherwise.

they have a new model out now, which a mate has just bought.

www.blackspot.com

I'll report on the new model when I talk yo my mate agin

Lookin at your links John, I like the way the road pilot also displays the speed limit of the road you're on!..excellent
