Arrow Bizness Equipment- Love and/or Hate

What business equipment have you bought recently that you love or hate? Why?

I've bought two things that I love.

HP G55 Color Inkjet Copier/Printer/Scanner
Now I can make color copies or prints of things as I need to... The quality is phenomenal, and when I need a quick brochure I don't have to sweat it.

HANDSPRING VISOR-- It's useful because it's easy to synch up to the computer, but I can also write stuff with it when I'm tooling around

I have a PowerMac G4 Dual 450 arriving at my doorstep on Wednesday. Ahhhh. I can't wait.

I bought it basically so I'd have something to plug my DV camera into.

New Jim Videos coming soon.

That's what I need-- A DV Camera. Which one do you have Jim? I've got my video on DV which is how I edit it at my brother's studio, but I then dub down the videos from a master vhs -- cuz my bro lives in NYC and I've run out of the 15 tapes I wheedled him into doing.

Have you guys seen the new camera on the market? it is a mini-disc camera...its pretty rockin! perfect for website stuff I think, but editing for sure, unlike tape where its all still in a linear format, the new MD format can be cut and pasted much the same that md music is. The only down size to it is only 20 minutes per disc they are working on compression methods...but I think they record to regular MD's not newly designed ones. perfect for promo videos?
anyhow thought Id throw my two cents in...I am thinking about getting one in the next year or so. I love technology.
