What product can't you live without?

Post by Michael » Wed Feb 21, 2007 11:12 pm

Okay, what products do you not need but can't live without?

I don't know how I got by without having a remote controlled lightswitch in the bedroom. It's the best invention ever. I can get in bed before turning off the main light... LOVE IT.

You?

My cell phone. I love it to death. I have my whole life on there. I bet I could go without my computer a lot more than I could without my phone.

One thing I could not live without? My DVD's. I love them, all of them. Well, most of them. I'll probably sell some of them this summer. But if you meant one specific product, then I'd have to go with my computer.

Dvds, eh? I can't say that I watch DVDs very much. And those that I own get watched once and then sit on a shelf forever...

Wow... that's awesome. I don't own that many movies. But I really love my Star Trek Voyager DVDs. I have all seven seasons, and they took me quite a while to get (seeing as how they're $120 a season!!! Agh!!!) But that's okay... it was worth it. :D

Voyager is the only one I ever got into. But my fiancee likes tng a lot, so we just ordered the first season from netflix. It should be comming in soon. We're going to watch all of them together.

I guess I like Voyager most because that's the one that I grew up with. It started playing in 1995, so I was 8 years old at the time. And the shown ended when I was around 16. And then of course I watched the reruns! But now I own it... yay!

And omg... coincidence or what? It's so funny that we were just talking about Star Trek, because on my Star Trek message boards we are talking about Clue right now... and I didn't bring it up!

We just bought some of those storage bags that you use the vacuum to suck all the air out and compress your clothes or whatnot down to small cubes. We stuffed pillow, comforter, blanket, winter coat and a jacket into one with lots of room to spare and it flattened quite nicely. I'm just wondering if it will keep it's vacuum seal or if it will gradually wear off and let the air inside.

Has anybody had any experience with these? I hope they work because they seem to save loads of space!

I couldn't live without TiVo. It's one of those things that seems superfluous until you actually get it, and then you wonder how people have been watching tv for over 50 years without it. You never have to worry about missing a show, if you want to show someone something who's not in the room you can rewind, it's amazing.

I actually don't have a TiVo right now, I just have a DVR from my local cable company. It's not the same. For one thing, when you're fast forwarding on TiVo and then press play, it'll skip back some to make sure you see everything you want to; the faster you're moving forward, the further it skips back. My DVR doesn't do that. It's annoying.
