My latest gadget is the iPhone 5S.  It's my first iPhone actually, and I'm very happy with it.  You can see my pictures from it on our Twitter page. :)

I got me this for early Christmas.
CMTSBT100
to replace my beloved and now dead Phillips MC50 Micro Sysytem .

I'm breaking in the speakers right now so I don't have any comments about it except that it looks great.

Oops, I gave the wrong model, it was the MC70 .
I liked it so much except for the 3 cd changer (never cared for that feature) and the tape player (never used it).
Noticed that the Sony one has 1 CD only which I think will be more durable.
If I don't like the speakers I'll use my Mission 750Le instead. :)

Sorry, wrong model again (what's wrong with me!). They're so old that the sticker on the back has fallen off. It's the Mission 760i.

Okay, I connected my Mission 760i to my Sony CMTSBT100 CD player and after listening to 4 CDs I'm convinced I made a good choice!
The quality is great and since I'm good with audio editing, my compilations sound almost perfect, especially for that price!

I'm going to be getting a Moto X for Christmas (I know, kill me, I know what I'm getting - they asked me, though). At first when I saw the specs I thought 'ehh' but after looking at what it does and the way that the phone is actually built, it's pretty cool. It has a main dual-core, but it has a quad-core gpu so it (apparently) looks pretty smooth and it has two more low-power cores to 'listen' to movement and what you're saying. Basically, even when it's locked and the screen is off, you can shake it to go to the camera, tilt it to see notifications, or say 'Okay Google Now' and still have about as good of a battery as most other phones, or even better.

On top of that, there's this new thing that Motorola is apparently developing called Project Ara - basically, if you ever heard of Phonebloks, it's like that but by actual manufacturers, so it's a little bit closer to reality as opposed to a marketing idea. Plus, Motorola is backed by Google now, who tends to like creative technological projects and has a lot of money, so it definitely won't get underhanded. Apparently they already have a prototype as well. Linkage.

I just received my new Bluetooth ">http://www.amazon.com/LuguLake-Portable … +speakers]LuguLake speakers.
Unfortunately, my Toshiba Thrive is too big to fit in the slot but I'll keep them anyway because the sound is surprisingly good via Bluetooth and it's real stereo.  I'll try them connected via mini-jack later at bed time. The sound should be even better.
