TWQ: New Gadgets You Would Not Buy

TWQ (the Weekend Question) asks about new gadgets you would not consider buying.

With the new inventions on the market,  which would you not consider buying and why? List as many as you wish.

My answers are:

* 3D television (just a passing gimmick)
* e-book (I like the feel of a real book, rather than reading a screen)
* iPad (with a computer and a cell phone, I don't need one.

Now it's over to you...

could not disagree more about the iPad capt! it's the invention of our lifetime.

i would not buy a snuggie (just a robe worn backwards) or a convection oven because i don't want to relearn how to cook.

Yeah I have to agree with Empress on the IPad, they have their uses for sure..
3D Tv yeah gimmick.
e readers yeah they are useful if you have manuals that you may need all the time and a good on a plane ;)

I wouldn't buy a tablet of any brand, it's too small... plus, being somewhat of a computer geek, I want something I can tweak, so it wouldn't be anything by Apple. 3D also does not interest me in the least.

I would most definitely never buy any sort of eBook. Like yourself I much prefer the feel of a real book with real pages to turn, I spend enough time already looking at electronic screens! Besides, my cousin the librarian would boot me out of the family!

I agree with the 3D television, but strongly disagree about the iPad. While I prefer a real book, I use the iPad as an e-reader for commuting ... it's much lighter and easier to handle on the bus and train. It doesn't replace the cell phone or the PC, but it's a nice thing in its own right.

I totally agree with the 3D television, but I have an Ipad and loooove it !! I use it as an e-reader at times (when I couldn't be bothered carrying a book), but admit that I do prefer the feel of a real book.

Blackberry: It looks great, but if I'm already burdened with email, why would I want to tether myself to texting when I'd rather meet friends for conversation?

E-reader: For God Sake. Bookstores are going out of business! I'd rather be in that social environment with a real book in my hands than holding a modified Etch-A-Sketch.


3D TV: Nah.
