    Router bits with the Amazon gift card my brother gave me for Christmas including the 1-/14-inch roundover bit for the TARDIS we'll be building soon.

    bought a transformer figure sometime way before christmas to put on my computer and just tried to use said figure and all the hinges just snapped. Lucky it was an old because I don't remember buying this one this year the box was a bit dusty. But the hinges on the shoulder snapped.

    At $5/mo for 24 months through my cable provider, I couldn't pass it up.

    I did not want to join The Cult of Jobs, but there are some useful apps for my music programs and plugins.

    Sorry for the bad pic. I just woke up and didn't feel like setting up a better one:

    Jobs is dead. There is no cult of Jobs it's the cult of whoever took his place.

    Well, it's the cult that Jobs started.

    Still, I essentially got $200 off or more from its regular price (no financing charges), and since it may prove useful for some things, I figured I may as well.

    I never thought there'd be a Lightning cable in this house.

    Some Naan Bread, popadoms and sauces that seem to have been reformulated to not contain milk.

    And some smoked haddock. And crumpets.

    Looks like after midnight sometime my next purchase will need to be Cubase iC Pro. I didn't know it was a paid app.

    As well as Octane Render (again). I tried V-ray again for a couple of months, but I think I do prefer Octane, especially with some of the features of Octane 4. I'll also be able to save $60/mo using Octane vs V-ray.

    Ipads are pretty useful. I'll give them that. Just the temptation to binge on buying apps I find hard to resist, for the time I have had one in my care.

    I'm kinda finding myself in the position of, "I have an iPad. Now what?"

    I honestly got it specifically for one app and possibly other, related features, but otherwise I'm finding it difficult to hold for extended periods, especially with my bad thumb on my left hand, and I have my Android phone with all the apps I seem to need. Besides, most of the time I'm home at my PC.

    :confused:

    Well an iPad with iTunes you can watch movies and stuff that they have you can't find other places. At least that's something I guess.

    I was opposed to all Apple products until 4 years ago when I took time off from work to study web design. I realised that the things you can do with a MacBook Pro is just awesome. I recently also got an iPad and an iPod and love them! :D

    well, as much as I absolutely hate being captured on camera, I just ordered a webcam and an LED video light panel and a 5-in-1 reflector.

    Honestly not sure if I'll be pointing them at me or my keyboard...

    I'll also be giving a Spacemouse a try.

    Plane tickets for my Toronto trip this May.

    Edit: Also got tickets for my trips to Boston, NYC and SF. Got nonstop flights for all but the Boston trip.
