I’m a self-confessed tech addict.  Which makes it all the more appropriate to call these random cravings of mine as “technolust.”  I adore looking at the newly-released gadgets in the market that I tend to drool most of the time, wishing I could get some of those gadgets for myself (which makes it lust-ier because I know I can’t have those gadgets).

As of late, here are the “toys for the big boys” that I’ve been keeping a close eye on.  I know it’d take 5 to 10 years before I could practically own any of these (save for one), but I guess it’s good to keep my hopes up.  Nevertheless, let this be a checklist of sorts, just so I could have a “goal” and a “motivation” when I work in the future.  Hehehe.

SONY PSP SLIM N’ LITE
I mentioned in one of my previous posts that hopefully, I’d be able to get a Sony PSP for my birthday.  I’ve been saving up for it and hopefully, before that most coveted day, I’d be able to proudly call myself a PSP owner.  I know it could be distracting to have one of these around, especially that I’m cramped with a lot of academic work lately, but in as much as I’m concerned, I get destressed when I play games, so I guess it’s okay.  (Better than smoking!)

DIGITAL SLR CAMERA
I’ve been lusting over a DSLR for quite a few years now, but unfortunately I haven’t been able to “fulfill” my DSLR dreams because they are just so effin expensive!!! Haarrrr.  A unit costs as low as 20K++ these days and quite frankly, I don’t have that kind of money (and won’t have soon enough).  But still, taking great photos with a DSLR is on my list of tech accomplishments.  Who doesn’t want a great camera, right?

PORTABLE MUSIC PLAYER
So yeah, call me the grand loser of the 20th century but I’ll tell you this:  I’ve never owned a portable music player in my whole life.  Even when the hype about the iPod hit Philippine shores big time, somehow, I haven’t been swayed by the wave.  But quite frankly, I’m missing out on a lot of things.  Especially now that I discovered that listening to music effectively lulls me to sleep.  Brrrr.  Must get that iPod.  Haha asaaaa.

HIGH-END CELLPHONE
Sure, my phone is still alive, but truth be told, it’s barely alive.  Haha.  I’ve had my trusty N3650 for a little over three years already, and quite frankly, it’s beginning to get a bit rusty what with all its hangups lately.  A new phone would come in handy, but I’ve been postponing buying one because I want to save up for a high-end phone, much like the N95, which has WiFi (a defintie must if I’m going to replace my current phone).

So there.  Notice that all my preferred gadgets are black?  I like black as a color for gadgets.  I think black is sleek and sexy and very pristine.  Don’t you think?
